Co-creative leadership workshop

More and more, leadership is no longer about what people know but rather about how people behave. Leaders need to put more emphasis on their own personal development in order to create workplaces that are more motivating and engaging for the people around them.
Leadership is a term that is currently evolving in organizations. In many companies there is a belief that people with leadership are strong, directive and get things done. Unfortunately this type of leadership tends to create conformity instead of employee engagement.
Co-creative leadership encourages leaders to work in a way that is more engaging and collaborative with their teams. This experiential 90 minute leadership development workshop is designed to help participants learn about co-creative leadership by experiencing the impact for themselves of collaborating with with other co-creative leaders.
Through this workshop, participants will explore the five key skills of a co-creative leader: 

  • Being a voice among many in the conversation
  • Unleashing the leaders around them
  • Building the capacity of their teams
  • Dancing with the system around them
  • Encouraging their teams to learn by doing 

Participants will learn about co-creative leadership through a mix of conversations and experiential workshops. They will find many new ideas and new practices to improve their leadership at work.
