Conscious Leadership for Online Leaders -- Reprise
Concurrent Session 1 & 2 (combined)
As the onset of COVID-19 rapidly shifts us to remote and online instruction, leaders need a variety of strategies to successfully navigate rapid change. The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership: A New Paradigm For Sustainable Success offers a helpful framework for collaboration, awareness, and influence for individuals in both formal and informal leadership.
With the current societal and economic unrest, the dramatic shift to online modalities, and uncertain futures, online leaders are collaborating with institutional stakeholders across many levels in the organization each day. With so much emphasis on remote and online instruction prompted by the onset of COVID-19, online leaders more than ever need to be equipped with effective leadership strategies to navigate complex waters. Historical leadership theories often assume more traditional lines of authority than the emerging nature of online organizations demand, causing newer frameworks to emerge that speak to the importance and need for leading from where you are and the need to take direction from the needs of the institutional community they serve.
This workshop will provide a platform for participants to discover their conscious leadership abilities, as well as plan for and practice new ways of communicating and working within their organizations that can lead to better outcomes. Participants will be engaged in self-assessment, goal-setting, and tactical planning to incorporate the proven methodology of Conscious Leadership into their everyday practice--walking away with a roadmap to collegial, meaningful, and effective relationships with co-workers, team-members, supervisors, and other institutional stakeholders in their institutions. Designed to model an active learning environment, the workshop will be comprised of a mixture of creative activities meant to encourage peer-to-peer interaction, deep reflection, and multimodal engagement.
Aligning to the Leadership and Institutional Strategies track of the conference, this workshop will equip workshop attendees to:
1) Explore the core concepts and models of Conscious Leadership and how they connect to online learning organizations and teaching leadership.
2) Explore the 15 commitments of Conscious Leadership Model
3) Discover their current conscious leadership potential.
4) Explore a relationship or workplace challenge and how to permanently shift the patterns.
Commit to ongoing improvement and practice of the tenets of Conscious Leadership.
