Invited Paper: Space is the Place
At the heart of adaptive leadership is a leader’s ability, in any given moment, to create the space to think clearly, listen deeply, and hold that space – both for others to feel heard and to make the best decisions. This is an inner leadership capacity which comes from a clear and compassionate understanding of who you are and how you lead.
In this partly interactive, experiential session, Sally-Anne will outline the framework she has developed to help leaders attain this kind of self-mastery, and the deceptively simple, powerful practice at its core.
