About the Author

Robert Jon Peterson, PhD, is president, CEO, and co-founder of TE2: Education and Engineering Consulting, LLC.


With a sharp, informed critique of the "Global North," Jon Peterson tees up its growing inequities and captures his own complexity as a member of both this North and the "Global South" through the Samoan "Talavou" clan. It is with this polyocular gaze that Peterson deftly captures and expresses his own duality in finding himself belonging to more that one set of cultural relatives. Focusing on leadership, a by-product of culture, as an "expression of a lived experience," Peterson takes the reader on a thoughtful, intellectual and purposeful journey fleshing out a leadership for community that emerges from and embraces the communal. Juxtaposed to the exploitive culture of "the North," Peterson crafts a Samoan metaphor for servant leadership, utilizing voices from both cultures and emphasizing collective leadership through the works of Durkheim, Blumer, Bourdieu and Tuhiwai-Smith. -- James Nelson, Ph.D., LMFT, President, Change Inc.
