Abstract: We will inquire into the nature/role of inspiration in leadership and do some demystifying. The connection between inspiration, aspiration and achievement will be explored as will the sources of inspiration. Some of the questions this session will address:
- What would an “inspired workplace” look like; what tools are available for leaders to create this kind of a workplace?
- What can science contribute to our understanding of “inspiration”?
- What is the role of mindfulness in inspiration?
- Can the energy of inspiration be harnessed?
- Are there any physical exercises that support inspiration?
- Are there any best practices to be learned at the individual and collective levels?
This will be an experiential session; come prepared to work.
