Geometry of a Leader Series
For-profit, Nonprofit, Education and Community Leaders

 

This series digs into the essentials of successful leadership and helps strengthen the core of a great leader. The workshops highlight three timeless virtues – presence, humility and courage. Leaders learn practical ways to be present to the people they serve, humble enough to solicit the wisdom of others and courageous enough to follow their vision despite the cost.

PRESENCE

Humanizing the Workplace

Exceptional leaders give people their full attention. They listen to understand. They prioritize human connection over their to-do lists and devices. As we venture further into the digital age, the pressure for leaders to multi-task and get things done often overshadows their choice to be present to people. After this workshop, leaders will return to work with concrete ways to prioritize and build rapport with those they serve.

HUMILITY

Creating “We” Solutions

Humble leaders know they don’t know it all. They seek input and advice from people with complementary strengths.
They are open to new ideas. They are aware of their weaknesses. Leaders will learn the key features of humility and learn to synthesize rather than silence the varied voices in their workplaces and communities. Leaders will leave this workshop with a renewed commitment to creating “we” not “me” solutions.

COURAGE

Following Your Vision

There are times leaders need to follow their vision and make an unpopular decision despite opposition. This takes courage. In this final workshop, leaders will learn the attributes of a courageous leader and discuss the challenges of leading with courage – especially when resistance emerges and the cost is great. They will leave this workshop with the tools they need to be successful in their next difficult
conversation or decision.
