INTO THE NEW, EXPANDING LEADERSHIP
That the times we live and lead in is fast-changing, volatile, unpredictable and complex is no news. That there are answers to how we need respond to that, as individuals, leaders and organizations, might be?
Research shows that responsive organizations with a co-active and co-creative leadership create trust, resulting in increased engagement, creativity and wellbeing, which naturally leads to profitability. Traditional ways to lead and grow organization do no longer serve us as well as they once did. The time has come for a new leadership paradigm to emerge.
All human beings develop in their unique way, but in certain aspects we all follow the same stages and patterns. Today there is clear scientific evidence that there are strong links between the stages of personal development and leadership effectiveness. As we shift to realize our own individual potential, we develop mental and emotional abilities that happen to be the capacities needed for successful leadership - the same capabilities required in the shape shifting and agile organizations we are creating.
We have seen too many examples of organizations failing in their agile or teal transformations. Most failures happen because only organizational structures and processes are addressed, without putting equal emphasis on individual- and leader development. At the end of the day, organizations don’t transform people – people transform organizations.
In this inspirational talk we will introduce you to the latest research in human developmental psychology linked to how organizations evolve accordingly. The new leadership paradigm grows from reconnecting with our innate human abilities: human connection, how to relate to self and others, respond to change with presence, trust, creativity and authenticity.
Come and raise awareness of how to lead yourself, those around you and your organization to create sustainability for individuals, organizations and the world.
