reflect and refract

I believe leaders have two responsibilities: (1) Reflect on experience so you can make meaning and share stories; and (2) spot, magnify, and refract strengths.

To serve your growing leadership skill and confidence, I’m hosting a series of virtual roundtables called Reflect & Refract. I believe each of us has something to teach and to learn, so I’ll be holding space for a spirited exchange among interested (and interesting) people.

I’ll be developing specific topics for each of five roundtable categories:

  1. Philanthropy/Fundraising authenticity and impact
  2. Planning for times like these
  3. The many dimensions of leadership
  4. Understanding and navigating organizational behavior
  5. Adaptive strategy development

My interests run deep in each…and they represent areas where I believe I can make my best contribution.

Each month features a different category. Each one hour session will have a topic framework announced in advance. I’ll kickstart the discussion with a few of my own reflections. We’ll use the balance of our time for discussion & interaction. Whoever shows up is meant to be there. Occasionally, I’ll invite a thinking partner as a guest presenter.

Drop in to one or more. Stay for as long as you get benefit.
