At a time when many of us are questioning the values of our leaders in society and in corporations, this interactive session will provide us with the space to reflect and explore collaboratively what matters to us as individuals, organizations and businesses. Guided by several frameworks from human evolution and developmental theory, we will look at how our values link with our own personal growth, and why living our values is important for leadership and decision-making, as well as organizational performance and the common good. With examples and case studies from experience, you will take away:
· A brief overview of human development theory in relation to values
· Further awareness of why values are important for leadership
· A broader sense of which values have meaning for us today.
This discussion will be the first of several evenings where we will discuss leadership in our contemporary world, evolving in the next meetings to discussions on value-based leadership in our German, American and international relationships.
