What does it take to create a leadership for the 21st Century and in particular in the time we are entering. We are starting out with a conversation about the current media paradigm and it’s internal dilemma talking with Erika Mikaelsson about her book Good News for a Change. We continue with a conversation with Åsa Rydhard and Anneli Mattson about bullying at work and the role of the leader to consciously create a healthy culture of inclusion where people feel they belong and are safe. The final session continues with the understanding of Courageous leadership as a model for the 21st Century in the conversation with Yasemin Arhan Modéer and Stellan Nordahl, followed by Agneta Nyholm who brings in the concept of graceful living and leadership in harmony with our nature.
The aim is to give participants the time and space to take a step back and go deeper into their purpose, and perhaps to even rethink their purpose in life either as individuals or as a company or maybe an entire community. The intention of this session that participants would walk away with: ● A clearly-articulated, written copy of their internal personal purpose in life ● A clearer view of the personal aspirations and beliefs that drive them ● A deep connection with their personal source of energy
Changes may be initiated by external impulses, but if they are to sustain, they need to come from, or be anchored, within, being it in the individual, organisation or society. Is “within” the same as intelectual understanding? Then why do we stick to habits that contradict the intellect? How do emotions drive motivation for change and how can we create the desired emotional state?
