KEYNOTE LECTURE:

Cultural Acumen: leading a team of leaders.

In our work with leaders, we find many whose impact is poignantly out of alignment with their deeperleadership intent. In part, this is a reflection of the complexity of the leadership task in shifting times, particularly when the challenges are tackled with outmoded mental models of leadership itself.

Yet some leaders still seem to find a poise that allows them to work to a different rhythm and, critical to this address, to promote the cultural conditions that balancesupportand growth for others with enhanced organizational focus.These people work as 'leaders among leaders.'

This cultural acumen, including the narrative capacity to transact it well, has always been an integral part of the art of leadership and seems particularly valuable in times demanding increased connection to purpose.

Using a synthesis of current leadership literature and the compressed power of personal story and metaphor, this presentation will explore some key questions

'Are there better ways to work together?'
'What conditions can leaders influence that encourage these better ways?'
'What is the leader's role in 'a team of leaders'?'
'What are the best questions we can ask about our organization?'
'How do we ensure that these questions are asked aloud?'

 

Goals of the Presentation:

Overarching intent - Conference participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their organization's 'leadership conditions' with suggestions for how to optimize them further. They will;

• Explore the concept of "cultural acumen" and its importance in the practice of leadership

• Become more aware of their impact on their current leadership context and of how they are transacting their intent

• Consider the leverage that creating 'a team of leaders' can bring to the challenges of contemporary leadership

• Understand the significance of Purpose, Praise and Playfulness as levers that support growth, balance and, ultimately, innovation

• Have time to make personal meaning and to share their understanding with colleagues in the room

Workshop

Speaking with Impact

In this Workshop, we will consider how effective communicators manage to be heard above the clamour of our 'information-noisy' times.

Workshop participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own communication practices and likely impact and to examine what works for successful communicators. We will use a variety of sources to examine this.

Each participant should leave with clarity on what works and doesn't work as well as with a basis for action in improving their own communication when speaking to others.

The workshop will focus mainly on spoken communication to both small and larger groups.
