Quantum Leaders, Inc.

Norman Wolfe, President and CEO

Norman will be discussing with us his just-published a book: The Living Organization. The book is transformative, a major breakthrough in understanding business through a new lens.  It transforms business from a soulless machine of production whose purpose is to maximize return to shareholders almost at any cost, to a living creative being, designed to fulfill a deep Soulful Purpose™, a purpose that drives and guides the collective to be in service to their customers and society.  A brief description of the book:

The pressure on CEOs and other organization leaders to create results while balancing an increasing diversity of opposing demands is reaching oppressive levels.  The time-tested economic system is no longer adequate to meet the challenges of a world of evolving complexity. The Living Organization delivers a new model that transforms the best of what worked before and expands it to deliver new life and growth for organizations.

First and foremost The Living Organization deepens our understanding of how any living organization creates the results it desires.  Norman Wolfe draws on decades of experience both leading and consulting with organizations, large and small, to unravel the mystery of creating results.  Based on scientific, philosophical and spiritual truths, The Living Organization® model explores how three distinct yet highly interdependent fields of energy influences and determines which results will and will not be created.

Beyond just a new theory Norman Wolfe provides practical tools for aligning and focusing the organization on execution of its strategy (creation of desired results).   Building on decades of learning about organization effectiveness and execution management The Living Organization expands our frameworks for allocating resources and making decisions that will reap the desired results. The guiding principals and theories can guide the largest of corporations or the entrepreneurial startup in getting the results they want.

Deeply personal, brimming with compelling stories from real-life challenges, and packed with powerful insights, tools, and practices, this book is a potent resource for aspiring, emerging, and seasoned business leaders alike. Or anyone interested in creating the results they desire.
