In moving toward a trust-based workplace culture, it is essential to paint a clear, energizing picture of what you are moving toward. At the most core level, it is answering these two questions: “Who are we as an organization?” and “Why do we exist?”
Within the answers to these questions you will likely create clarity around Core Values and Shared Purpose. We often call this the “heart implant” of a Power-with Organization. Alignment around these qualities is what initiates the transformation from extrinsically motivating staff to intrinsically motivating them.
In this session, we look at the core structures needed to begin or to deepen the evolution towards a Power-with Organization.
—Antoine De Saint-Exupéry, The Wisdom of the Sands
We will explore the “source needs” of an organization that provide the energetic connection to the organization around which we are drawn and aligned. We will discuss the core elements needed for a “self-organizing” and “self-directing” work team. We’ll see an example of an organizational structure in harmony with a Power-with Organization that values inclusion and autonomy. And finally, we’ll begin the discussion about how Power-with Leaders show up with both gentleness (e.g. empathy) and fierceness (e.g. mutual accountability) to become the dynamic drivers of making all of this work together.
through FEAR or through TRUST.
One makes people grow smaller.
The other invites people to be authentic and empowering.
The mindset and the skills are radically different.
In this 5-part series, participants are introduced to the foundations of Collaborative Leadership — leading through trust rather than fear, leading through power-with the people you are leading rather than power-over them.
Each of these sessions highlights a core facet of Power-with Leadership, and collectively they provide a prerequisite foundation that prepares you to delve more deeply in learning specific skill sets when you are ready.
