The Leading EDGE Series—The Dance of Leadership
Leadership as theory can be learned in a classroom or in books. But true Leadership is a holistic function of head, heart, and body – it must be Lived. Leadership as impact can only be learned by doing: experimenting, taking risks, and staying ahead of the crowd.
Where do you learn? You only learn when you are on your EDGE. The EDGE of what you know and do not know. The edge of your comfort/discomfort zone.
The Leading EDGE will challenge you to notice and shift how you show up in the physical and emotional space. We call it Leadership Presence.
We propose to take you to your Edge, where you will experience new connections, new perspectives, and discomfort – on purpose.
Step to the EDGE and Stretch, Lead, and Learn.
What’s Next: The Dance of Leadership – August 21, 2014
How can we know the dancer from the dance? ~William Butler Yeats
We invite you…
To stretch your capabilities and body beyond what you thought might be possible. Be on the EDGE. Be the best Leader you can be.
What: A refreshingly bold approach to Connection and personal Leadership
- Increase your Self-awareness through visual metaphor and movement.
- Explore physical presence and how you move through your life.
- Discover that how you move, conveys messages about you and your leadership style.
- Play in the five basic rhythms of life.
Who: You and a bunch of equally bold, curious, and interesting people
Why: Because using your brain isn’t enough. You want to show up with heart, soul, and body
Why2: Because Leadership is not about a title. Anyone can be a leader who cares, positively impacts others, continually grows their personal and professional skills – and wants to have an impact.
We invite you…
Step into new spaces that are rarely discussed or visited, yet are critically important to you as a person and as a Leader.
Test your edges, feel into your “discomfort,” and notice new places to expand.
Meet others like you who Lead – and who want to create more impact, build new capabilities, and show up more full
