The idea that leaders are born and not made? Well that’s just hooey. Sure, some folks are more inclined to exercise leadership than others. But the idea that it’s because they were born to be leaders ignores the fact that a.) leadership is a practice - an exercise - not a title, role, or position, and b.) what we often confuse for leadership is actually the exchange of power (for service) better known as authority. Is charisma a useful tool? You bet. Can strong public speaking skills move people? Of course. Are either of those things the exercise or practice of leadership? Not even a little bit.
Over the course of two-and-a-half days, we’ll explore these ideas, rumble with our our 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 we’ll spend time acknowledging and grappling with the risks and dangers associated with practicing real 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.
Typical attendees are Executive Directors, C-Suite executives, senior staff, and individuals interested in a deep dive into a theory of leadership that’s about progress and not personality.
