The Art of Leading Collectively: Enlivening Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the Berkshires” (Part 1) | May 25
The Art of Leading Collectively: Enlivening Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the Berkshires” (Part 1): - Dominic Stucker from the Collective Leadership Institute was invited to facilitate an interactive session on “The Art of Leading Collectively: Enlivening DEI in the Berkshires". In this session, Dominic explained shared language and the importance in developing a shared language within the Cohort on leading change collectively. He introduced his tool, The 6 Dimensions of the Collective Leadership Compass to guide to Cohort through opportunities for improvement and self reflection. He also focused on personal development. He used the Collective Leadershp Compass assessment as a baseline to engage the Cohort in a peer coaching session with their accountability buddy. The goal was for the team to set intentions for development as a collective leader to advance their DEI mission of business imperative. Together with their Project Team, the Cohort developed ideas for an emotionally compelling goal and/or narrative for their DEI arts initiative.
