We are hosting a rare one day event with Margaret Wheatley on 9th November 2017 in London. Some of you have been asking about outcomes for the day. You will be leaving the seminar with so many thoughts and feelings and aspirations I am sure, but here is what Meg has said recently about what to expect.
This is a time of profound disruption, when the best laid plans of leaders can be swept away by both manmade and natural disasters. Added to this uncertainty are the increasing levels of distraction, time compression, anxiety and stress that have distorted people’s lives and attitudes. Good leaders find it increasingly difficult to use the processes and practices that worked well in the past to evoke people’s inherent motivation, commitment, and creativity. Yet if we notice who we’ve become, we can recommit to who we choose to be as a leader for this time. Contemplation, learning from experience, and thinking are the keys to assist us in reclaiming leadership that reengages people and creates possibility even amidst disruption.
Outcomes from this day:
1. To develop increased awareness of who you’ve become as a leader, given the pressures and stresses of this time
2. To commit to leadership that best serves people at this time, i.e. trustworthy, ethical, discerning
2. To experience the power of contemplation and time to think
3. To commit to instituting time to think, both personally and for your team or organization
