Cultivating authentic leadership in times of complexity and ambiguity
Leadership can be a genuine expression of who we are, and our desire to make a positive impact in the world. It can be expressed through our actions, words, thoughts and feelings â€“ a true manifestation of our being.
Through cultivating openness, awareness and courage, we can face the challenges of uncertainty and change, with both vision and practicality. By consciously embodying this authenticity, we can create a powerful and enriching space for real communication and collaborative action to take place.
When we take full responsibility for our own state of mind, heart and body, we face our fears and limitations. We can acknowledge that we are just human beings â€“ full of potential, creativity, sanity and, sometimes, confusion. This gentle bravery can become the ground for moving forward as authentic leaders, for understanding and motivating the people we work with, and accomplishing our shared goals.
You are warmly invited to join us for this two-day journey of mindfulness, reflection, communication and humor. Our goal is to strengthen our capacity for knowing when and how to act, fully appreciating the opportunities and challenges that life presents to us. We will explore three key areas of authentic leadership: 1) cultivating personal sanity; 2) developing a heartfelt connection to family, friends and community; and 3) promoting authenticity and leadership in the workplace.
The workshop will especially focus on:
- Working with uncertainty, complexity and negativity
- Balancing fearlessness and confidence with vulnerability and openness
- Working with inner and outer conflicts
- Cultivating a genuine sense of humor â€“ going beyond cynicism and defensiveness
- The art of listening, reflection and decision-making Integrating mindfulness into the change management process
We recommend this program for those leaders who are ready to go beyond the comfortable limits of a â€˜ready madeâ€™ leadership training, who are willing to immerse themselves in an exploration of their own humanity, capacity and power to fulfill their potential as leaders.
