Headless Leadership: Unconferences and Other Spontaneous Disruptions in Your Workplace

Tuesday, March 12 | 5:30PM–6:20PM | Room 551
Session Type: NC13
What happens when a small group of progressive thinkers picks a broad theme (mobile, the cloud) and decides to assemble an unknown group of fellow employees to talk about an ill-defined number of unknown subjects? An unconference is born. Come learn how employees at Yale are using unconference principles to discuss, collaborate, and cross departmental boundaries to address issues of common concern. We'll discuss specific examples, including day-long, campus-wide unconferences as well as peer teams transforming their culture by incorporating unconference principles into their communication and collaboration.
