– and a link to some of Meg’s writings on leadership.
NB This post is in relation to a workshop with Meg Wheatley
, a writer and consultant who has inspired a generation of leaders to step forward and serve.
I was introduced at about that time to Meg’s writings (all Meg’s articles, recorded talks etc are freely available at http://margaretwheatley.com/library/
) by my consultant/coaching colleague, Penny Kay
, and together we’ve kept in touch with Meg’s new thinking over the years.
So you can imagine our delighted when Meg responded to our out-of-the-blue “20th anniversary e-mail”, inviting her to put on an event on leadership next time she was in the UK.
Leadership in these times is the result.
The day offers a great opportunity for those who work with people in leadership roles, to be more aware of effective contemporary leadership, and to support leaders to reclaim a leadership which re-engages people and creates possibility even amidst disruption and distraction.
“Good leaders find it increasingly difficult to use the processes and practices that worked well in the past to evoke people’s inherent motivation, commitment, and creativity. Yet if we notice who we’ve become, we can recommit to who we choose to be as a leader for this time.” Meg Wheatley
