Humane Leadership - Experiments To Develop Skills

Around the world, more humane models of leadership are emerging.

Humane leaders are experimenting with new ways to keep their teams inspired, collaborating, learning, and growing, undaunted by challenges and fulfilled by their successes.

The Harvard Business Review has powerfully linked employee engagement to profitability, and humane leaders seek to improve both.

In this two-hour workshop we develop skills by experimenting with our own humane self-leadership, because we tend to lead others how we lead ourselves. We’ll start by asking how consciously and creatively we choose our:
- Sources of motivation
- Operating metaphors to shape how we imagine opportunities and solutions
- Focus-shaping questions to drive efforts and results
