LEADERSHIP AT THE EDGE: ADVANCED LEADERSHIP PRACTICES FOR COLLABORATION AND INNOVATION
Leadership is a practice that requires the courage to ask others to imagine a different future with you. Sometimes the future is easy, a matter of making steady progress toward reliable results through practiced execution. At other times, the future does not lie at the end of a smooth path with a tidy solution. Rather, leadership is risky, an invitation for others to join with you in creativity and innovation, where curiosity and being “OK not knowing” are important steps along the way to new knowing. Leadership at the Edge is a course for those who want to understand this road less travelled, what leaders do (and teams need) to perform in the face of difficult challenges that are volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA).
This course teaches the DO-BE MODEL FOR LEADERSHIP AND TEAMWORK:
- How to expand your reach as a leader
- What enables teams to persist in the hard work of collaboration
- A practice of leadership that holds space for vulnerability, trust, and risk taking
- How to project influence without authority
