The practice of leadership is not for the faint of heart. The risks are plenty: loss of credibility, the potential to alienate those in opposition, plain old failure. You risk losing your job, being blamed for things you may or may not have control over, and even risk your own safety when the stakes are particularly high. Think of some of the most revered leaders in history; more than a few literally gave their lives for the causes they believed in and fought for. Knowing all of that, it’s both surprising that people choose to exercise leadership and not at all surprising that more people don’t. Being out front can be precarious, be it can also facilitate progress and change in powerful ways. That’s why practitioners of leadership need peers to process with and confidantes to. . .well. . .confide in.
Over the course of two-and-a-half days, we’ll explore the opportunities and risks presented in the practice of leadership, rumble with our own hang ups and resistance, and work on a definition of leadership that resonates for ourselves. We’ll bring case studies to the table and consult with our peers to dig into our own real-life leadership challenges, and spend time confronting the risks and dangers of practicing leadership. You’ll emerge with powerful new insights, skills, and readiness to manage change, tackle wicked problems, and exercise thoughtful and effective leadership with courage and caring.
