As he did in his classic Synchronicity, Joseph Jaworski once again takes us on a mind-expanding journey, this time to the very heart of creativity and deep knowing.Institutions of all sorts are facing profound change today, with complexity increasing at a speed and intensity we’ve never experienced before.

To effectively face these challenges, leaders need to access the Source from which truly profound innovation flows.M
Getting an MBA is an expensive choice-one almost impossible to justify regardless of the state of the economy. Even the elite schools like Harvard and Wharton offer outdated, assembly-line programs that teach you more about PowerPoint presentations and unnecessary financial models than what it takes to run a real business. You can get better results (and save hundreds of thousands of dollars) by skipping business school altogether. Josh Kaufman founded PersonalMBA.com as an alternative to the business school boondoggle.
Synchronicity is an inspirational guide to developing the most essential leadership capacity for our time: how we can collectively shape our future. Through the telling of his life story, Jaworski posits that a real leader sets the stage on which ""predictable miracles, "" seemingly synchronistic in nature, can – and do – occur. He shows that this capacity has more to do with our being – our total orientation of character and consciousness – than with what we do. Leadership, he explains, is about creating – day by day – a domain in which human beings continually deepen their understanding of reality and are able to participate in shaping the future.

Brand names, logos, and slogans are the identifying marks of corporations, but in the turbulent environment of the business world, these markers have little effect on the success of a company.

The author’s ""laws of identity"" will help managers be authentic leaders, recruit employees who will flourish in the corporate environment, and develop a product mix that both meets customer needs and highlights the talents of the organization.
