These two short videos get to the heart of Conversational Leadership.
Leadership is a practice not a position of authority by Ronald Heifetz
What is the work of leadership? by Patricia Shaw
In summary using Ron's and Patricia's words:
What is leadership?: "If we understand leadership as a practice, as an activity, then it becomes available to anybody, high or low, any place or position."
What is the work of leadership?: "Leadership is about convening conversations that might not otherwise happen."
Conversational Leadership: We are all leaders. We lead through the conversations we convene and in which we engage.
