How do you transform the ordinary into the extraordinary? Being a leader in the 21st century requires a new set of skills to cope with rapid change, global competition and complex challenges. Relying solely on logic, analysis and problem-solving skills is insufficient if the goal is to compete globally based on value rather than price. Some of the greatest difficulties leaders face today revolve around the need to instill passion, mobilize teams toward achieving a common vision, and motivating change in employees. An artful leader must know how to lead people creatively. Organizations led by creative leaders have a higher success rate in innovation, employee engagement, change and renewal.
This workshop explores what it means to be an artful leader, using an exciting blend of leading edge thinking and experiential learning using painting, theatre improv, and storytelling.
