Workshop: It Takes Two

Today’s business world is ruled by uncertainty and complexity. Whether we ascribe this to the effects of an increased inter-connectedness of the world, unpredictable market, ecological or legislative conditions: Leadership has become increasingly challenging. Neither strategic and visionary thinking nor inspirational and motivational guidance may prove to be sufficiently effective leadership skills in a world that deals with paradoxes and rapidly changing future scenarios. These altered external conditions require a new set of leadership skills and a way of acquiring these skills that goes beyond a cognitive and linear understanding of leadership.

Workshop: It Takes Two – Leadership During Complex Times

A unique learning experience to strengthen dynamic, yet balanced leadership

 

Leadership during complex times requires the capacity to step into the unknown and to collectively shape the future as it emerges. This workshop offers a unique learning opportunity to practice this skillse. We leverage the metaphor of Argentine Tango leadership style, which is a continuous process of leading, following and putting the lead into shared action despite many unknown factors,  to combine our cognitive approaches with embodiment practices.

Module 2: It Takes Two – embodied leadership exercises

  • Which impact do I want to have as a leader?
  • How can I find my center and axis?
  • How can I connect to myself, the environment and to others from that center?
  • How can I lead clear, predictable steps that foster creativity and healthy collaboration?
  • How can I dynamically adjust the course of my leadership in response to unexpected circumstances?

THE ANALOGY OF THE TANGO REALLY WORKS! I THINK EVERY WORKPLACE SHOULD HAVE A WORKSHOP LIKE THIS.

THIS PROGRAM TAKES SOME OF THE MYSTERY OUT OF LEADERSHIP SKILLS. IT MAKES LEADING SEEM MORE NATURAL. I ESPECIALLY LIKED THE WAY TANGO PRINCIPLES LIKE AXIS, BALANCE, CONNECTION AND THE SUBTLETIES OF COMMUNICATION WERE TRANSLATED INTO BUSINESS AND CORPORATE SETTINGS. I SEE WAYS OF USING THIS RIGHT AWAY,

THIS IS A FRESH APPROACH AND MOST BENEFICIAL EXPERIENCE. AND IT WAS FUN! THE DANCE ACTIVITIES AND OTHER PHYSICAL EXERCISES TO DEMONSTRATE LEADERSHIP WERE EXCELLENT. I HAD NEW INSIGHTS ABOUT MYSELF AND ABOUT THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF LEADERSHIP.
