About the Workshop:
“The question at the heart of Boundary Spanning Leadership is; how do we lead in a world where boundaries – characterized by wide-ranging differences in values, priorities, and cultures - collide, intersect, and link on a daily basis? As human beings, we all have needs for both unity and separation, autonomy and affiliation, differentiation and integration. Leaders must learn to constantly balance these competing needs. During the People in Aid workshop, we’ll explore a more contemporary approach where you first manage boundaries to forge common ground to ultimately discover new and innovative frontiers.”
What is creative leadership? It's the capacity to think and act beyond the boundaries that limit our effectiveness. Every leader and organization faces obstacles that are difficult to surmount - from corporate executives confronting the complex global marketplace to educators trying to lift student achievement to nonprofit groups and government agencies addressing critical social issues with tight budgets.
