Participatory Leadership: The Wisdom Is in the Room

Tuesday, March 19 | 4:30PM–6:00PM | Zurich E
Session Type: Professional Development
In a rapidly changing environment characterized by increasing emphasis on efficiency, alignment, and strategic action, IT leaders in higher education need new skills that emphasize communication and relationship management. Conversational leadership takes root when we see our institutions as dynamic webs and consider meaningful conversations to be a core process for effecting positive systemic change. Workshop participants will (1) gain an understanding about patterns of conversation, (2) engage in meaningful dialogue about leadership, and (3) experience and learn a group dialogue process known as World Cafe that can be used as a participatory leadership tool.
