THIS BOOK PRESENTS A NEW REGENERATIVE LEADERSHIP APPROACH DESIGNED TO ADDRESS THE INTERCONNECTED CHALLENGES LEADERS OF TODAY ARE FACING
This book weaves a new leadership framework with inspiration from pioneering thinking within biomimicry, circular economy, adult developmental psychology, anthropology, biophilia, sociology, complexity theory and next-stage leadership development. It connects the dots between these fields through a powerful DNA model that enables leadership to become regenerative, building thriving, prosperous, flourishing organizations amid these transformational times.
Regenerative organizations will be tomorrow’s success stories. Those that hold-on to yesterday’s logic will become yesterday’s news. It’s simple: adapt or die.

WHY HAVE WE WRITTEN THIS BOOK?
There is no doubt. We are living in a time marked by great upheaval and volatility. Leaders - both political and business - are being forced to cope with rising challenges: resource scarcity; high levels of stress in the work place; disruptive innovations; social inequality; constant competition for top talent; rapid digitization and globalization; mass migrations; fragile supply chains; mounting social tensions; political extremism; and much more.
On top of all this, the climate of our planet is breaking down and we are facing what scientists have called the sixth mass extinction.
Our production systems are based on a linear, take-make-waste approach. Our financial systems based on short-term profit maximization that ignore life and debase human integrity. Our organizational systems are dominated by hyper-competition, power-and-control hierarchies, and rising stress.
We need a new approach that values life. A new leadership logic where organisations flourish, ecosystems thrive and people feel alive. This is what Regenerative Leadership is all about.
