Background At the start of the Twenty-first Century, themes such as
interconnectedness, fluidity, dynamism, paradigm shifts and the importance of
process have appeared in the work of cutting-edge thinkers and practitioners
from physics, psychology, business, et al. Some of these are a rekindling of
perennial ideas and others are radical departures requiring a whole new
worldview. More and more, these concepts are being applied to remake our
perspective about leadership - where it comes from, what it is and isn’t, and
how to be effective in practicing it.
The challenge before us as the Third Millennium unfolds is whether we’ll be
able to ride the wave of expanding complexity and ever-evolving change with
the wisdom, skills and courage required. Among many necessary shifts (in
thinking, awareness and behavior), perhaps the most critical one is moving
toward seeing leadership as social artistry, as opposed to the traditional views
of a leader as a person with position, rank and privilege, an individual who
holds certain personal qualities or one who accumulates business or political
Process This program combines presentations of some of the current
seminal thinkers in leadership (taken from management, public policy, new
science, process-oriented psychology and human potential group work) with
experiential sessions for direct learning of concepts and personal exploration
and integration. Included are self-reflective exercises and interpersonal and
group interaction providing opportunities to personally engage a variety of
leadership considerations and to give and receive feedback related to
dimensions of leadership effectiveness. Material presented is relevant to
individuals working within organizations as well as those interested in learning
about leadership in other settings.
Outcomes In this program, participants will:
