- What does leadership mean to you?
- Is leadership a dirty word?
- What kind of leadership do we need to create a more sustainable future for all?
These are all questions posed by the newly formed CIC, Create Seven. Founded by Terry Sexton, Jill Chapman and Gary King, it seeks to develop and enable leaders to co-create a more environmentally, economically and psychologically sustainable society.
After joining a meeting of Create Seven members it became clear that in order to create new leaders we need a new narrative of leadership, and an opportunity to share meaning on how we already are or can become leaders in our own lives.
I collaborated with Create Seven to co-host a dialogue on new narratives of leadership. For those new to dialogue we explored some of the principles; listening, non-judgement, creativity and values, after which we were in dialogue together in the afternoon.
