Life-affirming leadership: Developing the skills of insight and compassion - Warriors for the Human Spirit Training Programme

We need leaders who put service over self,
who can be steadfast in crises and failures, who want to stay present and
make a difference to the people, situations and causes they care about.
Margaret (Meg) Wheatley “Who do we choose to be”
Scotland’s ambition for its future, as outlined in the National Outcomes, is inspiring. We know that doing more of the same but quicker is not necessarily going to achieve the results we want to see, but how do we change our deep-rooted patterns of behaviour? When the scale and complexity of the challenges can feel overwhelming, how do we stand our ground in a way that allows us to take positive and perceptive actions?
 
Leaders are confronted with complex change in the internal and external environment. In response to these increasing pressures, the majority of which are beyond any individual's control, good leaders face both personal and organisational challenges. As a result, they can feel exhausted, overwhelmed and, at times, faced with a sense of meaninglessness. In order to be effective in today’s increasingly complex and uncertain world, there is a clear recognition that leaders need a new set of skills.
 
Workforce Scotland has been exploring and building capacity for collective leadership in Scotland for many years now. The new skill set that this leadership environment requires includes a level of personal mastery, sometimes missing from leadership development efforts. It is this area of personal mastery which Meg Wheatley focuses on in her work.
 
In March 2020, we welcome Margaret Wheatley back to Scotland after her two-day event on Perseverance (blog forthcoming so keep an eye on your inbox!): this time to train a cohort of 35 system leaders in her approach to developing the skills to lead with insight and compassion on a 5 day residential programme. Margaret is a world-renowned leadership expert. She writes, speaks, and teaches globally about how we can accomplish our work, sustain our relationships, and willingly step forward to serve in these turbulent times to do good work maintaining the best of humanity – treating people with compassion and dignity. Meg refers to these leaders as “Warriors for the Human Spirit”: people "dedicated to serving people without adding to the aggression and fear of this time". 
 
If you are interested, take a look at the website for more information and link to the application form. Please note that the deadline for application is 17 Nov 2019. We expect this programme to be very popular and so would encourage early application.
 
Best wishes,
The Collective Leadership team
