Leadership in these times
A rare one day workshop in London with Meg Wheatley
A deep then-and-now inquiry into leadership and what is required for those how we move forward in these troubled times.
Meg Wheatley has inspired a generation of leaders to step forward and serve. She is co-founder and President of a global non-profit, The Berkana Institute (www.berkana.org
), an organizational consultant since 1973, a global citizen since her youth, and a writer.
John writes: The foundations for this event were laid 20 years ago, when Meg wrote a seminal article entitled “Beyond Command and Control”. I was introduced at about that time to Meg’s writings (all Meg’s articles, recorded talks etc are freely available at http://margaretwheatley.com/library/) by a consultant/coaching colleague, Penny Kay, and together we’ve kept in touch with Meg’s new thinking over the years.
So you can imagine our delighted when Meg accepted our invitation to put on a workshop next time she was in the UK. Leadership in these times on 9 November is the result.
The day offers a great opportunity for those who work with people in leadership roles, to be more aware of effective contemporary leadership, and to support leaders to reclaim a leadership which re-engages people and creates possibility even amidst disruption and distraction.
“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.” Meg Wheatley
