This event is free and open to the public.
Leading Well was developed to engage the community we serve through conversations with academics, business executives, executive coaches, community leaders, and leadership experts. These wide-ranging discussions cover topics from personal growth to leading others, and human development to leadership best practices, with a goal of engaging leaders at all levels. Through this series, we provide access to expertise, insight, advice, and best practices on topics related to leadership, leadership development, and leading well.
The first 30 people to arrive will receive a copy of
“Growing the Elephant: Increasing Earned Advantage for All" by Chris Altizer and Gloria Johnson-Cusack.
About the Event
Growing the Elephant – Increasing Earned Advantage for All (Practical Inspiration, 2022) authors Chris Altizer and Gloria Johnson-Cusack lead participants in an experiential approach to leaders’ roles in engaging others in challenging discussions of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Whether leading self or others, or guiding those who lead others, participants each explore in a safe-yet-brave environment “the elephant in the room” of advantage. Participants are introduced to practices that enable being with the discomfort of recognizing and working with unearned advantage to then grow opportunities for earned advantage – for all.Concepts to be discussed include:
- Productively reframing ‘privilege’ in DEI
- The GAM - Growth Advantage Mindset
- Self, Other, and Self-on-Other Awareness
- The GAM of Leadership – Dimensions of Power
- Reflections - meeting people where they are
- STOP - stop, take a breath, observe, proceed
- The Value of Intentions - what and why in DEI
This session does not require reading the book or expertise in leadership development or diversity, equity, or inclusion. It does require an open mind to explore and reflect on challenging questions and learn from others in the room – whoever they are, wherever they are from.
