Lunch + Learn: Are You the Spark for Your Team’s Potential?
“It takes two flints to make a fire.” -Louisa May Alcott
Are you a leader who fuels the ideas and strengths of your team? Or do you unintentionally throw a wet blanket on their participation and creativity? In this interactive mini workshop we’ll play with techniques to facilitate engaged, generative teams and provide a framework for clarifying decision making to ensure creative ideas get actualized. The tools you’ll learn are useful for those in formal leadership roles, leaders of cross-functional project teams, and anyone who contributes to groups.
What you’ll take away:
Practical techniques for facilitating inclusion and engagement
A framework to clarify decision making
Insights on group dynamics that support or constrain team potential
This event is part 3 of a series of Lunch + Learns about Conscious Leadership, designed for leaders at all levels who aspire to lead more effectively in work, in community, in life.
Leadership is a practice. It is a way of being, behaving, and engaging that evokes the best in those around us. Some aspects of leadership come more easily than others, but all great leaders continue to hone their leadership capacity through intentional self-development. Join us for one or all of this three-part series to develop your conscious leadership practice. We will look at how we lead within, how we lead one-on-one, and how we lead groups.
