Half a Shade Braver: The Foundations of Conversational Leadership
December 7, 2016
10am - 1pm
Join David Whyte for an intensive morning of poetry and imaginative insight, as he shares his latest thoughts on the frontiers of Conversational Leadership.
One of the abiding dynamics of leadership, whether it is leading others in public or leading our personal lives is the necessity for visibility: the willingness to step into the clear air of commitment and articulation.
We commit to others and to a direction we wish to take most effectively through making three invitations: firstly, by identifying the horizon to which we wish to go, secondly, by articulating the ground on which we now stand and lastly, by asking others to join us in the endeavour of getting from here to there.
One of the most important qualities a leader must develop is the art and craft of shaping an identity that invites these real conversations and is ready to negotiate the difficult, rewarding steps along the way.
With his compelling blend of poetry, humour and insight, David will reframe your understanding of leadership and the way good work gets done, as well as the milestones and adventures that occur along the way when we make a real invitation - to ourselves, to others and to the future.
