TIAS Inspiration - Leadership and Language

About this Event

Get inspired with TIAS during our Information event on January 21, 2020 in Utrecht. Meet the Academic Directors, Program Advisers and alumni.

Inspirational lecture: Leadership and Language

This keynote will be held by Roemer Visser.

You may have heard someone being described as “all talk, no action.” Regardless of whether or not this is true, this less-than-flattering assessment is based on a widely shared belief regarding leadership: that there is an essential difference between talk and action.

In this interactive session, we will examine this belief in more detail. By applying John Searle’s concept of speech acts, you will (re)discover that talk is action. The distinction, then, is not between talk and action, but between effective talk and ineffective talk; talk that serves to perpetuate the status quo versus talk that primes people for action. We will close the first half of the session with some examples of how this shows up in our everyday lives.

In the second half of the session, we will deepen our understanding of this phenomenon by applying this to utterances you may hear on a daily basis. We will draw on Robert Kegan’s work to create more effective alternatives to these ineffective utterances. You will leave the session with a deeper understanding of the role that language plays in leadership and with some insights that you can put into practice the very next day.
