Beyond the Rockstar Paradigm: Practical Tools for Visionary, Collaborative Leadership
Although western culture has canonized the hero archetype of the individual leader, many who study leadership recognize that successful organizations, networks, and movements are characterized by a distributive, collective, complementary form of leadership.
How do we practice a leadership that moves us beyond the Rockstar Paradigm?
- Nurture Our Personal Ecology – because high impact leadership does not have to lead inevitably to burn out.
- Invite “the Other” to the Table – because we must set aside the need for comfort/familiarity at all times, and invite those who bring dramatically different perspectives and experiences to our leadership advisory table.
- Practice Partnership for the Long Haul – because the notion of individual hero can also bring about unnecessary over reliance on self, when there may be many mutually beneficial ways to get support and be in community with others (even those we imagine are our “competitors” in the marketplace.
Join this highly interactive webinar with Pia Infante of Rockwood Leadership Institute to hear about and explore practical tools for everyday leadership.
