This paper admonishes school leadership to respond to today's rapidly changing world as interconnectedness sweeps the globe. While school reform continues amid confusion and diminishing public confidence, often because of weak leadership, organizations are transforming into ' learning organizations' through systems thinking and transformed leadership, all within natural law. This is part of a global metamorphosis as the Western psyche allows itself to respond to its inner, intuitive voice. This paper argues for school leadership and school leadership training institutions to break from tradition and thrust schooling to the fore as it initiates acceleration of school transformation into values-driven learning communities grounded in shared responsibility and framed within nature's ' spiritual templates'.
