There is no shortage of leadership manuals, experts, and articles for aspiring leaders to consider. The real practice of leadership, however, requires that we ground ourselves in a deep and unwavering understanding of who we are, what we care about, what tools we have available, and how we interact with others.
In this two-part workshop you will explore four cornerstones to a powerful leadership practice:
- Inner-work: You will start by distilling a deeper sense of who you are through a process of story-telling and reflection.
- Clarity about Purpose: Drawing upon your sense of self, you will articulate what drives you and adds meaning to your work.
- Identify your Distinct Toolkit: You will be guided through a strengths-based exercise to identify the tools (contexts, experiences, skills, artifacts, and expertise) that shape your professional stories and lessons.
- Examine and Expand your Network: You will examine your connections to understand your network. Your network, the group of people who help you to deepen and expand your impact, will serve as an especially valuable resource during times of challenge and change.
This workshop is appropriate for early leaders who are in the process of establishing themselves in a new role or are interested in taking on the next level of leadership. Participants should be prepared to engage fully in this highly interactive and reflective format. The facilitators will be available to participants for one hour-long consultation during the school year to further hone in on the content of the course.
