Dear Kosmos Readers,
When we learned that Otto Scharmer was writing a new book with Katrin Kaufer Leading from the Emerging Future: From Ego-System to Eco-System Economies we were excited. We knew our readers would be excited too. We all want to learn more about the emerging future, as pioneered by Otto, the bestselling author of Theory U.
But how were we going to do this?
We had to get our copy to the printer on May 6, 2013 and the final editing of Otto's book was not finished. Not only this, but Patrick McNamara, our reviewer, was overseas and only had a three-day period available in which to write the review. Day-by-day we waited, first for Otto to finish his edits, then for Berrett-Koehler to edit his edits, and finally for the illustrations to be included. Our printer was alerted to the situation and promised to make a last-minute entry of the Review after all the galleys were in. This meant that we would have no chance to proofread it. Patrick must have done an all-nighter to save the day.
We made it! Otto tells us that the Kosmos Journal review is the first forLeading from the Emerging Future.
Here's an excerpt from the Introduction:
"What's being born is...something that we can feel in many places across Planet Earth. This future is not just about firefighting and tinkering with the surface of structural change. It's not just about replacing one mindset that no longer serves us with another. It's a future that requires us to tap into a deeper level of our humanity, of who we really are and who we want to be as a society. It is a future that we can sense, feel and actualize by shifting the inner place from which we operate. It is a future that in those moments of disruption begins topresence itself through us."
Read. Learn. Be inspired. Be part of the emerging future!Warm regards,Nancy
