How would the world change if we learned to access our deepest capacity to sense and shape the future?

This is just one of the questions posed by the authors of this book that combines unusual personal honesty with rigorous critical thinking.  Our May selection gives the reader an intimate look at the development of a new theory about change and learning.  In wide-ranging conversations held over a year and a half, Peter Senge and colleagues Scharmer, Jaworski, and Flowers explore their own experiences and those of one hundred and fifty scientists and social and business entrepreneurs in an effort to explain how profound collective change occurs.  Their journey of discovery articulates a new way of seeing the world and of understanding our part in creating it — as it is and as it might be.

Join the Carleton Business Book Club at its May meeting to explore the process of change.

Book selection -- Presence: Human Purpose and the Field of the Future, by Peter Senge, et al (2008)

You are welcome to invite friends to read the book and participate in the conversation, Carleton alums or not.
