Leaders accelerate change when they consciously model lean-agile culture through their words, stance and actions every day. By practicing facilitative leadership skills, leaders at all levels tap the brilliance of the people around them and help everyone collaborate better. The facilitative leader looks around and thinks, “How might I help these amazing humans work together most effectively, and enable us to be wildly successful?” Facilitative leaders practice skills like active listening, using empowering language, using the power of silence, asking powerful questions, and welcoming elephants. They make it safe for others to also practice, fail, and learn, accelerating learning throughout the organization.
In this talk, Ronica shares what facilitative leadership looks like in action, and the impact it can have on others. She’ll invite leaders at all levels to examine how they are showing up, and to make a conscious decision to adopt an identity: “I am the kind of leader who _______.” We’ll then explore how you can use the power of intention, daily practice and habit formation--building on very small wins--to make that identity a reality. Attendees will commit to very specific small steps to begin to show up differently. “Be the change you want to see in the organization.”
