Our world is being hit by multiple crises—from Covid-19 to the climate emergency. Our organizations must adapt rapidly to exponential technologies and ever-changing customer needs. We all must deal with endless uncertainty, overwhelm, and automation. But conventional leadership thinking was developed to maintain the status quo, not to transform it.

Our emerging reality requires that every leader can upgrade their mindsets and habits not just once, but constantly, to ensure their organizations, and societies, adapt in time. With our disrupted and damaged world demanding continuous transformations—in products, processes, policies, and people—only truly transformational leaders take charge of change to secure sustained success. 

No enterprise—or species—can outperform the capacity of its leaders to be transformational. It is adapt or die on an unprecedented scale. The stakes could not be higher.

Now Lead The Change sets out out a powerful and profound—yet extremely practical—method for mastering transformational leadership so you can lead your people, organization, and system towards a regenerative future.

Within is a lucid, luminous, and illustrated summary of Bio-Transformation Theory, pioneered by the author over 25 years on the front lines of personal, business, and systemic change. Grounded in the latest brain science, fueled by essential embodied wisdom, and focused on landing lasting change in concrete situations as fast as humanly possible, BTT contains 7 life-changing—and world-changing—principles to master your own biology; metabolize any problem into purpose and profit; and step up as a next-level leader with transformational mindsets, habits, and tools. Contains chapters on what Covid-19 reveals, amplifies, and requires from leaders.
