Show Notes

Join us on a captivating journey with Max Cloud, an integral master coach, author, speaker, podcast host, and consultant. Max unravels the concept of servant leadership, sharing his own personal evolution and experiences with service in Israel, AmeriCorps and City Year. We look at his connection with the Mankind Project, exploring its profound impact on his life and work. Max's passion for service and the development of others truly shines through in our discussion.

We talk about Max's book, "Race and Social Change; A Quest, A Study, A Call to Action" which started as a dissertation and was published a decade later following Michael Brown's death, opens up a discussion on systemic racism and personal transformation. Max's journey to understand the individual's relationship with larger systems, coupled with his research into the youth leadership program, Camp Anytown, offers valuable insights into how connection, power, and love influence our ability to challenge and transform systems.

Finally, we venture into the realm of social change and the power of myth. Listen in as Max talks about how Joseph Campbell's writings changed his understanding of the world, showing him the underlying story uniting us all, and how this framework now helps him develop Leadership in others. Our conversation leads us to the shadow side of power and its role in our collective work for justice and equity. Max's development of a curriculum that invites people to see their world through the lens of a heroic journey, emphasizing the civic sacred, is sure to inspire listeners.
