Giles Hutchins & Laura Storm, co-authors of Regenerative Leadership
The authors decided to join efforts on bringing this book into the world as they share a common passion and purpose for transforming how we lead and operate in ways that are truly regenerative. They have both worked with corporate executives, city leaders, public bodies, entrepreneurs, charity and political leaders for decades and have used these insights to bring forth a new leadership framework that addresses the challenges leaders now face. The authors advise leaders how to gear their operations to succeed in the future; and it is their hope that this Regenerative DNA Model will contribute to the shift toward the emerging Age of Regeneration.
“Hutchins and Storm demonstrate that they are clearly at the forefront of a new leadership paradigm that maps an emerging model for sustainable organization in any institution that wishes to thrive.
Hutchins and Storm know what they are talking about – and we should start listening.”
