Half A Shade Braver:
Leadership in a Time of Magnified Uncertainty

with David Whyte and Gayle Karen Young

We always work with uncertainty no matter the times in which we live, but in these days, we are living through a time of super-uncertainty, magnified by the feverish political climate and the rise of extreme stances and views taken by colleagues, customers and governments alike.

This will be a brief but intensive morning looking at foundational ways of shaping a deeper more imaginative and more conversational leadership identity, able to live and hold a leadership conversation at the calm center of even the most difficult patterns rather than being subject to their stormy and often distracting peripheries.

A centered, foundational, imaginative, identity does not take sides, it is always creating products, services and forward looking conversations that neither side is offering. Join Poet and Philosopher, David Whyte, and leadership and organizational development consultant and former Chief Talent and Culture Officer of the Wikimedia Foundation, Gayle Karen Young, for a few hours of intensive immersion in this timeless identity, both to face the challenges that confront us in this time and more importantly, to shape an identity that can find a way through them.
