  • Synchronicity: The Inner Path of Leadership by Joe Jaworski When I first read Joe Jaworski's book Synchronicity¬†in 2004, it fundamentally transformed my work in leadership development. ¬†Jaworski is a close colleague of Peter Senge and Otto Scharmer - a group of friends and thought leaders that catapulted leadership and systems change research into the broader field of presence, flow, and the unfolding mystery of how events and people seem to miraculously come together.
