Event description
What makes a good leader? Is it ‘gravitas, seniority, masculinity, ruthlessness, self-confidence, experience, connections and schooling…'?*

About this Event

Why you need to forget what you know and lead...

Join Peridot Partners and Within People for interactive ‘unlearning’ from 9.30am on Thursday 23rd May 2019 at NCVO (Society Building, 8 All Saints Street, London, N1 9RL)

As part of our new Leadership Network and following on from our joint event in November 2018 – How can we lead differently in the 21st Century to accelerate social change? we’re inviting you to join us and to pause and reflect on your leadership journey so far.

If you’re curious and values-led, we’re inviting you to question some of your assumptions about what it means to be a leader, and how you can be yourself in your own leadership story.

We’ll be joined by Julie Nerney, new Chair of the Association of Colleges, who will share how bringing her personal values into the workplace made her a more authentic, empathetic leader and how it felt when she wasn’t being true to herself.

Julie was previously part of the leadership team for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games delivering the transport operations across the capital. An expert in delivering transformational change, she’s been CEO of 14 companies across nine different sectors including third, private and public sectors.

Within the context of the workshops we’ll be talking about these seven very different leadership qualities - vulnerability, empathy, curiosity, creativity, conviction, courage and patience.
