No problem, happens to the best of us. Welcome!
Heather Watt-Kapitain

Appreciate the breadth of the definition
Amy Weaver
41:42
"create a world where everyone flourishes" - excellent!
Tara Hunt
42:04
@Amy Weaver Love that distinction!
LizDennis
46:28
As a privileged white woman who grew up in the 70’s, this stance around reimagining a future where everyone flourishes feels like a very accessible way of being part of feminist values. Something I never felt a part of before.

will we be able to get a copy of the presentation slides?
Delbert Williams

@Laura I will double check with CV. We will send out a recording of the presentation after the forum closes.
LauraHanley

excellent, thanks!

Terms like "Playing Hard Ball"... are a part of that.
Melanie Hill

love the focus and view - shifting from symptoms and strategies to whole system/ecosystem.
LizDennis
53:32
Experimentation informed by values - sounds a lot like human centred design!

I think this is changing (albeit, slowly!) skills like empathy and emotional intelligence are being brought to the forefront as essential workplace skills :) https://www2.deloitte.com/us/en/insights/focus/technology-and-the-future-of-work/future-of-work-human-capabilities.html

Great question Tara
Delbert Williams

Thank you Krista for that link
Tara Hunt
59:41
Thanks Krista!

I agree that the convention may see it this way, however in organizations that look at leadership from a different perspective, these attributes and skills are seen as effective and valuable and essential.
LauraHanley
01:00:30
Our current leadership training is based on emotional intelligence which has been an amazing learning experience for our group

I always encounter the “that sounds nice, Tara, but you have to be practical” - so this is helpful!

01:03:29
I agree @Tara Not seen as the way to get shit done.
Amy Weaver
01:07:00
Motivation is an important distinction. The "why" of servant leadership - choosing it as a way of being. Those who have been doing it their whole life - this is your time!
John B
01:07:29
There's an expression - "I lead from behind"... could you unpack the positional/stance of a servant leader?
LauraHanley
01:07:29
Amy Weaver - agreed!!
Tara Hunt
01:07:32
Interesting enough - as we listen to this, Elon Musk is having a very public meltdown (he’s the epitome of the OPPOSITE of servant leadership - egotistical, privileged, bows at the altar of workaholism, takes risks that put others at risk constantly, totally toxic). But it isn’t just his toxicity that is on stage, it’s the way that the toxic leadership system that is in place also hurts the men within it (I see Musk as a victim as much as a villain).

I see servant leadership as a conscious choice. Moving away from the traditional power structures.
Heather Watt-Kapitain
01:08:06
There is something about getting out of the way…
Amy Weaver
01:08:32
I lead from beside

Power with vs power over.
Shakiba
01:08:55
@Mike - love that.
LizDennis
01:09:00
…and to use the well-worn but I think still important idea that the wisdom is in the room.
Amy Weaver
01:12:26
Nice!
Laura Tamblyn Watts
01:13:38
(Is it wrong that my first thought was “who is making the food and who is washing the dishes?” #COVID19cleaninghumour)
LizDennis
01:13:54
LOL!
LauraHanley
01:14:25
Love it!
Delbert Williams
01:14:45
Everyone washes their dish?
Laura Tamblyn Watts

Cy Wakeman - No Ego - comes to mind on this....and difference between addressing your needs as a human and (for leading) vs. the needs of your ego ("leader"). And the more clear you are on difference the easier it is to find balance in what you offer and expect.
Amy Weaver
01:15:39
There are many different leadership approaches. My default is servant leadership, however recently in this time of COVID, there was a need to become far more directive. How does that fit?
Mike Anderson
01:16:21
in education, we call that leadership as a co-learner
Delbert Williams
01:17:05
@Mike are there books articles on that?
Delbert Williams
01:17:22
That you recommend?
Mike Anderson
01:18:07

I'm with a teen who is asking how can we implement this mindset to/for the youth
