I just returned from a mind-altering three-day thought leadership summit in Connecticut, hosted by Judith Glaser, author of Creating We and The DNA of Leadership (both of which are landmark books for leading change and ensuring alignment in your organization or team).
At the summit, which we collectively titled The First International Creating We Summit, we engaged in deep conversation and shared the most groundbreaking tools for facilitating real change. Present were the leading thinkers from a variety of disciplines, including organizational development, neuroscience, psychology, and more. The mutual benefits and shared learnings were so great that we realized we need to keep working together on an ongoing basis.
Rest assured, more will come from this, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, we got to preview a new video from Judith Glaser, called The Leadership Secrets of Gregory Goose. Don't let the title, or the simplicity, fool you. This animated short packs a wallop in its short 6 1/2 minutes, and is bound to generate discussion among leadership teams who watch it. The purpose of the video is to help leaders understand how sharing power releases the leadership instincts in others.
Here's a brief snippet, along with information for ordering it (the package comes with a facilitators guide and power point presentation, so you can conduct your own workshop with the video). If you order it, tell them PMThink sent you.
