Children and Leaders

children and leaders raises provocative questions about the nature of leadership in our world. Starting with the simple premise, “there are no leaders without communities; there are no communities without children,” it explores the intimate relationship between children and leaders. Unfortunately, this profound relationship is absent or dormant for many of our corporate, social, political, and religious leaders.

Vivid images of children and leaders from around the world, past and present, show us what is possible when leaders place children on their path and hold them close. The striking words and images offer hope and inspiration and, perhaps more importantly, challenge the predominant approach of warrior leaders. The leaders shown here do not control, own, or expand, but rather “hold children with the same passion other leaders demonstrate as they try to hold onto power, the land and its riches.”

children and leaders is written for everyone – offering insights, questions and choices for leaders and community members. A children-centered world is a bold vision inviting all of us to make many changes in how we think and feel. “If all leaders would agree on the happiness of children, there would be no war.
