Connect with your Leadership Superpower
A lovely Saturday morning in Bern. It’s our PMI Switzerland Volunteer Day 2018 where Elena and I surprised thirty-five of PMI Switzerland’s active volunteers with the benefit of diving into a one-day experiential workshop, earning PDUs for their recertification with PMI while at the same time stepping into their leadership authority.
Impressions of our lively day
Highly energized, we excitedly designed our group and leader alliances, explored multi-sensory experiences, took on different perspectives, learned about dynamic leadership, reflected individually as well as in dyads and groups, loved the circled seating, experienced the power of co-leading, dived into lots of experiential exercises and deepened our curiosity using lots of powerful questions.
The Multidimensional Leadership Model
We walked and explored the five different dimensions of the Leadership Model, discussing the five different ways to lead while finding body postures and gestures to deepen the essential findings of the Leader Within, Leader in Front, Leader Behind, Leader Beside, and Leader in the Field.
Every leader can potentially operate from all five dimensions at different times, shifting from one to the otherdepending ontheir leadership style and the needs of the moment. At the center of the model lies Leader Within. Leading from Within allows you living your life with integrity according to your own internal compassandguided by your purpose and values. From here you choose which other dimensions to step into. Invited to an inner journey, the group went on a journey to new awareness, taking aha-moments as inspiration to spark actions in their voluntary work as well as their day-to-day work life.
Thank you for making our day so special…
