Leadership under Fire – English Version
15. February 2023, 19:00 – 22:00 CET
Tools for Leaders, Politicians and everybody, interested in the issue of leadership
All leaders are faced with the challenge to use their own power with awareness and intent in order to interact with their teams, organizations, and larger constituencies in a way that can inspire and empower others. This class will give practical tips to anyone serving in a leadership role to meet those moments of attack, criticism, and polarization. Leadership is always under fire because ultimately the public wants good leadership. In addition, public dissatisfaction is a signal for each of us to engage in the development of our own leadership potential. Leaders need connection to their own authentic power in order to have the fluidity and confidence to hold a diversity of viewpoints, frame tension, division and discord, and respond accordingly.
The tools presented in this class are useful for all leaders in diverse industries and everybody interested in leadership. We will engage in exercises where we can explore interventions and practice possible speeches in order to address polarities, deepen dialogue, and respond to criticism.
More Material for this online class can be found in Dawn’s award-winning book: Facilitating A More Perfect Union: A Guide for Politicians and Leaders (2022).
