Leadership and the New Science
Leadership and the New Science launched a revolution by demonstrating that ideas drawn from quantum physics, chaos theory, and molecular biology could improve organizational performance. New science enables us to deal successfully with change and uncertainty in our organizations and our lives. It describes a world where chaos is natural, where order exists ”for free.” It displays the intricate webs of cooperation that connect us. It assures us that life seeks order, but uses messes to get there. Leadership and the New Science is the bestselling, most acclaimed, and most influential guide to applying the new science to organizations and management. Margaret Wheatley describes how the new science radically alters our understanding of the world, and how it can teach us to live and work well together in these chaotic times.
