The Empathic Leader: Leading From The Inside Out

  • Victoria BC, Royal Roads University 2005 Sooke Rd Victoria, BC V9B 5Y2 Canada

We are living in a time where having one's feet solidly on the ground of how things 'actually' are requires a stout courage to step well beyond one's comfort zone and speak with grace and integrity about the associated challenges and dissonances.

In this workshop we keep our eye firmly on the horizon of leadership: How do we inhabit the archetype of Leader? How do we lead and set an example in challenging times? How do we attend to the structures both visible and invisible that promote or hinder people’s levels of engagement and cooperation? How do we hold a standard of speech and personal accountability that demonstrates a high level of awareness and consideration with respect to what is going on both within us and between the people around us? How do we initiate and encourage important conversations when doing so creates discomfort?
