Since 1966, Margaret Wheatley has worked globally in many different roles: a speaker, teacher, community worker, consultant, advisor, formal leader. From these deep and varied experiences, she has developed the unshakable conviction that leaders must learn how to evoke people’s inherent generosity, creativity, and need for community. Wheatley received her doctorate from Harvard’s program in Administration, Planning, and Social Policy, with a focus on organizational behavior and change.
Margaret Wheatley has been a consultant and speaker since 1973, and has worked with almost all types of organizations and people, on all continents (except Antarctica). Working in so many different places, with all types of people, has fed Wheatley's curiosity and ability to recognize patterns of behavior common across cultural and institutional differences. And it kept her alert to changing trends in leadership.
Wheatley has served as full-time graduate management faculty at two institutions, Cambridge College in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and The Marriott School of Management, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. She's been a formal advisor for leadership programs in England, Croatia, Denmark, Australia and the United States and, in Berkana, with leadership initiatives in India, Senegal, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil, Greece, Canada, and Europe. Since 2009, Margaret has had a formal appointment (President approved) to serve on the National Parks Advisory Board. Her portfolio has focused on leadership and culture change within the system of 400+ parks.
Additionally, Wheatley is co-founder and President of The Berkana Institute, a global non-profit founded in 1991. Berkana has been a leader in experimenting with new organizational forms based on a coherent theory of how living systems organize, adapt and change. They've worked in partnership with a rich diversity of people around the world who strengthen their communities by working with the wisdom and wealth already present in their people, traditions and environment. Berkana is now training Warriors for the Human Spirit, leaders who learn-as-community, training with discipline and dedication to develop a stable mind and skillful means. These spiritual warriors do their work with compassion and insight, vowing to refrain from using aggression and fear to accomplish their ends.
Wheatley has written over ten books and nearly 100 articles. Her writings have been an invitation to explore new ways of being and thinking based on wisdom drawn from new science, history, and many spiritual traditions.
