FIVE GOOD IDEAS ABOUT REFLEXIVE LEADERSHIP
SEPTEMBER 30, 2019 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (Toronto, ON)
Every leader wants to become the most effective they can be, and leaders of change-making organizations carry a special responsibility to “be the change.” But there’s always a gap between how you see yourself and how others see and experience you. Closing that gap – enabling your “inner leader” to match your “outer leader”- requires a reflexive leadership approach. It helps expand your consciousness of who you are and how you show up in the work you do, as well as how you fit in a broader context of systemic realities that lie outside of you but deeply impact you and your communities every day. In this session, Paulette Senior will provide key insights on reflexive leadership as a lifelong effort to do the hard work of change-making, starting with yourself and moving outward to your organization and the broader society itself.
