For you aspiring leaders, managers, executives, and entrepreneurs, this is a MUST-READ. It is timely and relevant and provides a fresh point of view on our future as business people, consumers, and human beings. The authors explain the major transformations that are under way - in ourselves and in the world around us - and implore us to look inside ourselves, embrace our soul and intuition, and build organizations and opportunities that reflect our goals and values. We must embrace ideals such as self-awareness, empowerment of others, passionate and purposeful communication, mentoring, and alignment. With historical insights, present-day observations, and future predictions, this book is an exciting breakthrough that will inspire you to take action.

Format: Paperback
I was inspired and fascinated by this book, as it confirmed some of my own ideas about where companies and leaders should be going and introduced many new ones. I read it cover-to-cover in about four days!

Part 1 surveys the evolution of organizations and the social and industrial forces that formed them.
Part 2 talks briefly about the great changes that took place during the 20th century. Useful background.
Part 3 describes what the authors call the transorganization. I am not crazy about neologisms, but I understood that they wanted to emphasize how different these new organizations are in their characteristics, the results they generate, and the most importantly, the language that they use, which is so indicative of the values in the "organizational soul".

The authors point out that we need strategy to invent the future of our organizations, leadership to make the needed change, and soul in the sense that personal values and inner beliefs must be consonant and in harmony with the organization. There has been too little of this in the past, to the great detriment of both sides.

Part 4 was very exciting to me, as it lays out the characteristics of the transleader. I admire them, and aspire to them. Part 6 on Intentional Transleadership builds on them very effectively, by virtually giving a step-by-step how-to guide. Part 7 then details the personal transformations that we need to make. As an entrepreneur with plans to build a global organization, this is useful stuff!

Part 5, on Transorganizational Strategy was also very interesting, but I jumped ahead and then came back to it, as I wanted to work on my personal transleadership first.

I found the book visionary, and unexpectedly exciting.

Format: Paperback
Sertly and Huberman have created a strong conceptual model for Transorganizational Leadership in the context of the evolution of organizations and leadership and in the spirit of guiding oneself and one's organization from the core. Of particular value is their six-faceted model of the organization's "prism of the soul" and subsequent juxtaposition of the leader's six facets.

I think their work integrates nicely with "Theory U" by Scharmer and "Good to Great" by Collins. I think it offers a little more robust framework for "tribes" than the book by the same title by Godin.

They have clearly identified an important new dimension of organizational life; that of its "soulfulness" and deeper integration of people, mission and leadership for which organizations are particularly hungry.

I strongly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
I have had the privilege of knowing and collaborating with Jennifer and Koby for many years. Jennifer and Koby "preach what they practice". Kindness and compassion has been lost, in recent times, where leaders have been ego-driven and sometimes look upon their organization as a means to, quickly, climb the corporate ladder and in the process destroying the soul of the organization. Jennifer and Koby have succeeded in writing a book that is succinct and prescribes a form of leadership that is sorely needed in these days. They have, indeed, brought the east and west together in this, very well written, book. I feel that this book for every leader or those who aspire towards leadership in helping them focus externally, towards the well being of their teams, as well as reflecting, internally, about their own behavior and responding in an effective and timely manner. By writing this book, the authors have filled a need that has been missing. I predict that this book will be discovered by many of the management and leadership gurus as a valuable addition to their personal libraries.

It's one thing to introduce new concepts, it's another the weave old and new together in order to form an interesting and useful tapestry.

If you've a new soul, you'll find resources to help you move forward.

If your business soul has been around for a while, you'll enjoy the support of a shared journey that will confirm the suspicions you had all along - that there was more to it than setting prices, cutting waste and prodding employees to produce more...

Either way, it's worth your time.

Excellent review how organizations evolved through the last decade, while getting the essence of their operating values in a very clear way.
I was pleasantly surprised to see how well the authors were to predict the future...and how fast the future i-Organization is already blooming in our world. The observation that one of the core values of the i-Organization is "Imperfection" is brilliant and thought provoking.

Great book, no none-sense and lots of innovative thinking.
