Top Picks for Wisdom on Systems Change

I've been actively getting out there in sharing my knowledge and experience in incubating and accelerating systems change.

And in doing so, I've been asked a few times recently to share my top picks of those folks who hold great wisdom on the subject.

I've put this list together from a little help from my systems change buddies,  like the mega Andres Roberts.

Although the nature of systems change covers a super broad range of topics from science to spirituality, here are the faves.
