About this experience:
To help people navigate the profound challenges posed by a global pandemic, a fragile economy, and social unrest, leaders at all levels of organizations in the public and private sectors must be more sensitive than ever to others’ situations and needs and to the impact of their own words and actions. Most breakdowns in workplace interactions are caused not by bad intentions but by a lack of leaders’ awareness of the impact of their behaviors on people in their organization, whether it’s a project team, a business unit, or a large corporation. Given these uncertain times where breakdowns are plentiful, leadership self-awareness is especially important.
In this experience, participants will:
- Learn how increasing their self-awareness can impact the organization
- Recognize their leadership blind spots and how to address them
- Understand a systemic way for organizations to consider increasing self-awareness of their leaders
