Approaching the Heart of the Matter: Personal Transformation and the Emergence of New Leadership

This paper describes the need for what Synergos’ founder Peggy Dulany calls personal transformation (self-knowledge and self-love) as an important prerequisite for becoming “bridging“ leaders - who can listen, empathize and bring others together to solve problems collaboratively.

Peggy traces her journey to understand her fears, find safety in knowing and understanding herself, and then become more effective as a bridging leader in the world. Telling my story is my gift to others seeking to find their role along this same path toward contributing to a better world.

This paper was presented in May 2012 in Celebration of Synergos’ 25th Anniversary.
