PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY: Its Role in Creating a Better World
...a virtual online dialogue with nine Berrett-Koehler Authors

The BK Currents Authors' Dialogue on PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY is an invitation to think, question, explore ideas and get involved right where you are. First, meet each of the authors. The dialogue is then seeded with diverse perspectives from John Perkins, Angeles Arrien and Alex Pattakos. Nine authors explore these key questions in an Open Forum:

  • What does personal responsibility mean to you?
  • What will it take on a social, global and personal level to institute change?
  • What can we all contribute using our talent, our voices, our votes and our influence?

The dialogue concludes with each author's personal message and call-to-action.

Nine distinguished Berrett-Koehler Authors meet in dialogue on a timely topic: PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. The authors include (from left to right above): John Perkins, Angeles Arrien, Alex Pattakos, Debbe Kennedy, John Renesch, David Korten, Charles Derber, Lee Drutman and Stewart Levine.
