The Leadership Calgary deadline for application is June 29th. Are you curious about the program? Check out highlights from Natalie Muyres, speaker at our 2011 Recruitment Breakfast.
“We all start out the same. We all have the same origin. Leadership Calgary introduces you to our humanity by thinking about our human journey at a species level. Culture as a product of our collective development, we, our ancestors, our story were responsible for the greatest achievements of humankind, but also for our greatest failures.
We refer to the tools Leadership Calgary introduces us to as a meta-framework – a way to evaluate your own thinking and the thinking of others. It is a meta-framework because all other frameworks can be evaluated using it. Like our legal structures, economic systems and religion. These are frameworks. On their own, these frameworks cannot tell you how life systems are integrated. A meta-framework takes you beyond your current culture or circumstance. The meta-framework gives us the tools to understand humanity and the course of our actions. In doing so we are able to better construct our own thinking and actions, or adaptively position ourselves and be aligned to the largest frame, to that of life.
Leadership Calgary introduces you to an adaptive way of thinking about leaders and leadership. In this, we meet leaders from the past and the present, some you know, others you don’t, that tell an important story. We take so much for granted about leadership. Our leaders rarely ask ‘why’ or ‘how’ and sadly this is what most people aspire to and what we are passing onto generations to come.
We hope that Leadership Calgary will encourage you to reconstruct your own thinking in an adaptive way and influence generations to come.
Leadership Calgary isn’t about Leadership so much as it is about a personal evaluation of how you choose to engage with life and the choices and tools you have to change the course of your own learning.”
Does this stir you? Challenge yourself to the Leadership Calgary Class of 2012. Apply before June 29, 2011.
