Category: Co-creative leadership

A few years ago, I was delivering a presentation at a local user group meeting. During the question and answer period at the end, I went off on a little rant about various leadership challenges I see in organizations. That rant spawned an article you will find on this site called The Silent Leadership Crisis.

For me the article, it was the first time that I put tangible words around the leadership mindset I coach my clients towards which I call co-creative leadership.

This section contains articles that either directly talk about to co-creative leadership or that talk about some of the key skills of co-creative leaders.

Feel free to reach out to chat about leadership and organizational culture, talk about having me speak at your next event, or any other interesting reason you can think of!
