Event Information

Becoming A Wise(r) Leader

The Wise Leader draws together thinking from the world of wisdom with insights from the world of leadership psychology. Traditional approaches to leadership value intelligence and empathy. But neither intelligence nor empathy is enough to solve the challenges our world is facing. As a society we apparently become more intelligent with each decade, yet we seem to be falling behind in our ability to navigate complexity. Empathy enables us to understand other’s feelings and to engage, but empathy by itself doesn’t help us disentangle complex, volatile issues and to make the right decisions. We need to look beyond intelligence and empathy, if we’re to become adaptive, humble, agile and curious.  We think its time to look more closely at Wisdom and what this lens can offer ourselves and our clients.

In this session we will look at the five mantras of wise leadership and, most importantly, the practical ways in which we can all engage in to become wiser leaders. The talk will be of specific interest for leadership development and learning/talent & DEI professionals, as well as coaches.  We hope to see you there!
