Agile + DevOps East 2020 Concurrent Session : The Doing and Being of Effective Leadership


Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 1:15pm to 2:15pm

The Doing and Being of Effective Leadership

Add to calendar

Logic, reason, stability, discernment, assertiveness, confidence — all traditionally associated with masculine "achiever” energy — are uniquely celebrated and developed in our organizations. But what about those traditionally associated with feminine “creative” energy — empathy, intuition, creativity, nurturing, vulnerability, etc.? In our impatient quest to achieve progress, efficiency, speed and growth, have we inadvertently suppressed vital elements of our natural human capacities - ones that are needed now more than ever? Could this explain why it sometimes feels like we are off balance - flying in circles, as if one wing was fully tucked away and going unused?

Join me for this interactive session that will explore the importance of integrating our natural feminine and masculine energy to rebalance the ‘doing' and ‘being' to become more effective leaders. You will explore the contours of your natural way of leading, identify and appreciate the value of the feminine “creative” energy, and learn how to reclaim what you need to restore a better balance in your own leadership.
