Postponed from Thursday, November 17th to Thursday, November 24th.
Facilitated by Anton Smith, this series of Business Circles will centre around Leadership Values with reference to the Initiatives of Change’s Core Values identified below.
The question will be how Leaders can incorporate these values into their organisations. Of course, all 6 Values are interrelated – we can’t have Honesty without Trust Building but within each topic there are distinct aspects that matter.
4. PURITY OF MOTIVE
5. TRUST BUILDING / COOPERATION
6. QUIET TIME
Business Circle 3 – LOVE
To some, the concept of Love within a workplace and Leadership environment may seem out of place, or “fluffy”. But we need to recognise what Love really is. I chose to use the definition put forward by M. Scott Peck in his groundbreaking book on relationships “The Road Less Travelled”
“Love is the willingness to extend oneself for the sake of one’s own and others’ spiritual growth”
The premise is that Leadership involves the process of growth in both Leaders and their teams – to encourage the best possible performance from everyone and for the organisation.
We’ve already explored Honesty and Unselfishness which, in themselves, are aspects of Love and the remaining topics in this series of Circles are, likewise, other aspects – Purity of Motive, Trust Building/Cooperation and the need for Quiet Time.
Spaces are LIMITED for this session; first come, first served. Please note that all sessions are held on Zoom – we advise that you ensure your Zoom application, whether on desktop, browser, or mobile device, is the most current version. Please see Zoom Updates for more details.
This event is for anyone who’d like to share their experiences of Leadership, whether as a Leader, a Leadership Trainer or as one who has observations to make of their Leaders.
