Training on values-based leadership | March 28-29, 2020 | Vancouver, Canada
The philosophy of values-based leadership compels leaders to drawn upon the values which they and their followers live by to provide motivation-based direction. This connection is natural, as leaders who succeed in sharing their values can more easily spur others on to act and help create a shared vision. To quote Richard Barrett, author of Building a Values-Driven Organization, value-based leadership is “… a way of making authentic decisions that builds the trust and commitment of employees and customers.”
This is an advanced training in management that is designed to stimulate creative and critical thinking about how leaders create value in and for contemporary organizations. The training materials have been selected to prompt thinking about the complexity of leading organizations from a wide variety of perspectives. As a result, participants in the training will improve their understanding of organizations, as well as their ability to relate to, function within, and effectively lead organizations to create value.
This training will use concepts from organizational behavior, human resources management, philosophy, social psychology, sociology, strategic management, and organizational theory. Accordingly, we will look at organizations through many lenses throughout the training program. In fact, we will work hard at developing what is termed “critical multiplism” and attempt to cast aside the biases of “perspectivism” that we all have.
