In this 1-day online workshop, participants will be introduced to an innovative framework that challenges the understanding of leadership. Central to this framework is the premise that leadership is not a position, rather a practice that may be conducted by anyone within an organization.

Through a case simulation and peer case consultation process, participants will apply concepts to real-time leadership challenges. They will also learn how to view complex organizational challenges in a different lens, while exploring corrective measures and options that may produce innovative and lasting outcomes.

Target Audience

All Engineers and Geoscientists BC registrants. Session is also applicable for non-registrants.

  • Describe how one can use these concepts to address their own leadership challenges;
