Listen to Lead: A Key to Navigating in Times of Disruption
How can we effectively lead in times of disruption and create desirable outcomes that shape the future we seek?
High uncertainty about our future and economic disruption challenges our professional plans and activities. As a wide array of different possible ways forward appear in front of us, how do we know which avenue is best for ourselves, our team and society at large? As leaders and intrapreneurs we need to find ways to connect with the emerging potential to create desirable outcomes.
Listening is probably the most underrated leadership capacity today, even though listening is at the source of all great leadership. Many of today’s leadership failures originate from a lack of listening. A lack of connecting to what is really going on in reality right now. – Otto Scharmer, MIT
In times of disruption we cannot simply rely on past patterns. Strengthening our ability to deeply listen and create inclusive spaces where everyone’s voice can be heard, is more challenging online but even more essential for our ability to create a sustainable new normal. Generative dialogue enables creative outcomes to emerge and a group to tap into new possibilities.
When has listening, or the lack of it, made a difference in a specific outcome in your personal or professional life?
This interactive workshop focuses on deep listening and generative dialogue practices that help you to build trust and harness meaningful collaboration opportunities when working remotely. On a foundation of trust work can continue to be effective, motivating and generate transformative results. The practices are based on Theory U, a change management and leadership methodology from the MIT.
