Curing the authority hangover

Many of us spend a large chunk of our mental and emotional energy worrying about the tension and noise in our relationships at work. Yet who wants to feel trapped when they could be experiencing a sense of aliveness and joy in working together?

This provocative and useful session has people look at how hierarchical authority keeps us all—including senior leaders—frustrated and stuck. Participants get to reflect on what blocks us from having effective and efficient conversations. They can move from rumination and speculation to conversations with each other. This keynote is particularly effective for anyone who wants to have greater influence, rather than more control.
