Healthy leadership creates the conditions for great work. Unfortunately, there’s a persistent, old story that leadership means having all the answers. This is a lie. It cuts off leaders off from their authentic gifts, magnifies their blindspots and silences their team. I help leaders:
Recognize their blindspots and use practical, immediately applicable tools to stop old patterns in their tracks.
Look at their leadership through the lens of power and privilege
Honor their own voice and support the voice of others.
Hold themselves and their teams accountable
Teams that have vision, belonging and passion are unstoppable. But too often, one of these elements is missing and teams:
Run from crisis to crisis
Keep having the same meeting/conflict over and over
Don’t take action
I perform a qualitative and quantitative assessment of your team. What’s missing? I’ll create a custom intervention that helps your team shine.
I design meetings and staff retreats that enlist the imagination and intelligence of the whole room:
“Wow. The feedback from the retreat has been absolutely astounding. I have never seen the like. It appears to have been a genuinely moving experience for our folks.
“The mandate of forging deeper/new connections to each other, to the institution, and to the cause appears to have been fulfilled, in spades. Astoundingly good work! “
