Topic: Not Your Parents’ Leadership Model
If you could step back from the everyday demands of the job, and question the assumptions on which we base work, what could you see? We stumble over what’s leadership and what’s management. When we step back, we can ask perspective questions:

  • Why do we try to separate management and leadership?
  • How much utility does that separation have in a connected world?
  • What impact does that separation have on engagement?
  • Is there a better way? Has there always been a better way? If so, why don’t we know it.By looking at where work, management and leadership have been, the vision of where to go becomes clearer. Our historic models have been homogeneous, exclusive and largely unchallenged because they form the assumptions on which current learning is built. While more diversity is being added, historic models still influence what business students are taught about how to lead. What if those unexamined assumptions are based on faulty data?

More inclusive data informs a different leadership model that re-integrates the human character with building engaging workplaces. This presentation will provide previously overlooked leadership models that take a path more in line with the current workforces’ need for balance and meaning.

This highly interactive session will give participants the information to reassess leadership models and move beyond linearity to leadership suited to where businesses are growing and not where they’ve been.
