Overcoming imposter syndrome
You can know all sorts of leadership techniques, and still hold yourself back. Why? Inner critics are the worst kind of self-talk demon. We all have one, and when we listen to it, we can spiral into imposter syndrome and shrink from exercising leadership where it’s needed most. In this workshop we use storytelling and reflective exercises to explore the critic and find new ways of working with it, supporting one another towards self-confidence and leadership. Participants leave with new perspectives and practices for relating to their critic, and additional steps to take to move forward in their leadership.
The POWER OF STORIES: an experiential Keynote
Leaders aiming to move and motivate their people need to engage our emotional selves, as our emotions and values are what lead to motivation and movement. This keynote presentation offers three key tools for crafting motivational narratives and enabling authentic connection to audiences and communities. Participants will learn to share the stories of how they came to their own leadership, bring the community together through narrative, and learn to activate and inspire people to take action on the most urgent challenges of our time.
Adaptive Leadership & systems thinking for change
What do you do when challenges keep arising even after you address them, and nothing seems to stick? Or, Why do coronary heart disease patients keep smoking or failing to exercise? Or, Why doesn’t your organization have more leadership of color? Questions like these plague us, because so often in leadership we are mis-diagnosing the root of these issues, and treating problems with the wrong strategy. In this keynote presentation, Rosi addresses the key distinction between adaptive challenges and technical problems to support participants in making progress on seemingly intractable challenges. Participants apply these distinctions to a collective challenge and gain a few strategies for moving forward, all based on the framework of Adaptive Leadership as taught by Ron Heifetz at Harvard.
