6/16 – Flow-Based Leadership

Leadership Coaching Tips / April - June 2015

Judith L. Glick-Smith, Ph.D.

Have you ever worked in an environment where everyone is happy and productive, where everyone is actually having fun doing what they do. No one complains about [the boss / a co-worker / the project / upper management / etc.]. The organization is innovative, creative, and profitable. The workplace fosters a sense of belonging, collaboration, and a “do whatever it takes” attitude. There are organizations, both geographically contained and virtual, where this is actually the culture. …

6/16 – Inspiring Space, Place, and U.Lab: A personal reflection on The Presencing Institute’s Foundations Program in Cape Town, South Africa

Notes from the Field / April - June 2015

Allison Stern

Travel offers many opportunities, among them the chance to broaden one’s mind. As a lived experience, travel also offers access to insight through other, more holistic ways of knowing. My recent excursion to Cape Town, South Africa was just that: an integrated foray into other ways of knowing via The Presencing Institute’s in person U.Lab and the majestic and complex place that is Cape Town, South Africa.

4/7 – The Perils of Pernicious Polarities: Contemplating Creativity, Collaboration, and Complexity.

Column / April - June 2015

Alfonso Montuori

Back in the late 80s and 90s I ranted and raved in print and off about the fact that our understanding of creativity in the US was focused exclusively on individuals—inevitably the lone male genius–and there was no recognition of creative interactions, of musical groups, theater productions, movie making, and the performing arts in general, let alone women (Montuori, 1989; Montuori & Purser, 1995, 1999).  A few decades later, the trend has shifted. Collaboration is in, lone geniuses …

4/7 – Leading the life you want: Bridging work, family, community, and self!

Leadership Coaching Tips / April - June 2015

Natasha Mantler

Work/life balance has run its course…

Over the past two decades, there have been a plethora of work/life policies and programs designed to ensure men and women lead more productive lives (Greenhaus, 2000). The result? People are feeling even more stressed about not achieving, never mind maintaining, balance in their lives. When the goal is work/life balance, people are being forced to play a zero sum game (Friedman, 2014).

There is an underlying assumption that work/life balance is …

4/7 – Scholarly Leadership Considered – A Call for Papers

Peer Reviewed Articles / April - June 2015

Mark McCaslin

“Faculty are losing out, too. Research and publications have become the primary means by which most professors achieve academic status, and yet many academics are, in fact, drawn to the profession precisely because of their love for teaching or service—even for making the world a better place.” (Boyer, 1990, p. xii)  Twenty-five years have passed since The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching issued Ernest Boyer’s Scholarship Reconsidered. Having been a professor and scholar during that …

4/7 – Stewart D. Friedman

Leadership Quote / April - June 2015

Stakeholder dialogues will propel you to the next step, designing experiments that will benefit not just you but all the important people in your life.
