About the Author

David Whyte grew up with a strong, imaginative influence from his Irish mother among the hills and valleys of his father's Yorkshire. He now makes his home in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.The author of seven books of poetry and four books of prose, David Whyte holds a degree in Marine Zoology and has trav- eled extensively, including living and working as a naturalist guide in the Galapagos Islands and leading anthropological and natural history expeditions in the Andes, Amazon and Himalaya. He brings this wealth of experience to his poetry, lectures and workshops.His life as a poet has created a readership and listenership in three normally mutually exclusive areas: the literate world of readings that most poets inhabit, the psychological and theological worlds of philosophical enquiry and the world of vocation, work and organizational leadership.An Associate Fellow at Said Business School at the University of Oxford, he is one of the few poets to take his perspectives on creativity into the field of organizational development, where he works with many Europen, American and international companies. In spring 2008 he was awarded an honorary doctorate from Neumann College, Pennsylvania.In organizational settings, using poetry and thoughtful commentary, he illustrates how we can foster qualities of courage and engagement; qualities needed if we are to respond to today's call for increased creativity and adaptability in the workplace. He brings a unique and important contribution to our understanding of the nature of individual and organizational change, particularly through his unique perspectives on Conversational Leadership.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning
By K.J. Ramsey on July 14, 2020
This is a book about paying courageous attention to your life. It will slow you and startle you, even as it soothes. Whyte invites us to encounter the painful and prosaic realities that make up our everyday experiences in order to engage life more fully. He consistently and carefully turns words inside out, and thus, turns your attention from outside in and back again. Whyte invites you to both see and sail in the larger conversational tide of your past, present, and future.

This book is beautiful, and one I know I will read over and over again my entire life. I don’t say that often.

Side note: Whyte’s use of metaphor is astounding.
