A leadership salon with Joseph Jaworski, Susan Taylor, and Hugo Skoppek

9th and 10th November 2018

Organizations today face profound change and complexity, increasing at a speed and intensity we’ve never experienced before. Traditional analytical leadership approaches are proving inadequate to deal creatively with business environments characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA). To re-focus and inspire their organizations, leaders are challenged to build the capacity to access the source from which truly profound innovation flows.

Many people have experienced a connection with Source, often when called upon to respond in times of crisis—where moments of extreme spontaneity and intuitive insight abound and actions are spontaneous, seemingly without any sort of conscious intervention. But these experiences are chance occurrences—ordinarily we don’t know how to access Source, and we even have a blind spot as to its very existence.

This salon is an opportunity to get to the heart of what it means to live and work from Source and what we need to do to stay in dynamic dialogue with it.

This leadership salon is designed for people who seek to deepen their understanding of leadership. It is suitable for board members and CEOs, directors and heads of social-profit organizations, owners and executives of small and medium enterprises as well as all individuals who aspire to assume the responsibility of any such position.

Participants will begin to recognize Source at a deeper level, becoming more familiar with its inspiration and strength in order to begin to use it effectively.

In this interactive leadership salon, we will employ elements of structured dialogue to ensure everyone has a chance to participate fully. People will have an opportunity to express freely and honestly and are encouraged to listen attentively. There will be time for personal reflection as well as free exchange with others.
