Leadership in the Plural : Its possibilities and challenges - and how to cope with diversity and differences


Date: Aug. 16, 2016 - Aug. 20, 2016

Venue: Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai

A Theme Centered Interaction Workshop in Cooperation with Ruth Cohn Institute for TCI-International, Berlin/Germany

Facilitators: David Keel, Switzerland / RCI International Dr. Nishi Mitra, TISS

Shared leading or plurality in leadership can be creative and powerful besides being envisaged as the future leadership style in complex and knowledge based organisations. However, sharing responsibilities and power is not easy and may sometimes challenge efficiency. Especially under pressure it is a challenge for leaders to cope with diversity in a fair and non-violent manner.

Often this leads to disturbances and conflicts. I have my point of view as you have yours. I lead... you lead ... what then?

This workshop will focus on an experiential understanding of shared leading and its challenges, and how to make fair and democratic handling of disturbances and conflicts.

The workshop is part of a long term training of an existing training group of 18 persons, but open to others who are not part of this group.

Seats available for max. 7 additional persons. We offer the possibility to work at personally valid themes under the overarching topic of shared leading, its possibilities and challenges. Preference will be given to those with experience of TCI workshops, though this is not mandatory.
