How to be a voice among many in conversations

By being a voice among many, co-creative leaders are no longer in the situation where they need to be the person who speaks last.

About co-creative leadership

A few years ago, I was delivering a presentation at a local user group meeting. During the question and answer period, I went off on a little rant on leadership challenges I see in at clients. That rant spawned an article you will find on this site called "The Silent Leadership Crisis". For me, it was the first time that I put tangible words around the leadership mindset I coach my clients towards. I call this mindset Co-creative leadership. In the fall of 2016, I joined the Forbes Coaches Council. I decided to use their platform to talk more about co-creative leadership. The first article I wrote for Forbes was "Why leaders need to get more co-creative". You will see that I republished the article here as well. I am very passionate about it and I incorporate this leadership mindset in everything that I do. From when I work with my own team at Pyxis Cultures to when I deliver Management 3.0 courses. It is also my approach when working with clients as well and the direction I coach the leaders to be.

Co-creative leaders are a voice among many

In February 2017, I gave a talk at a leadership conference called: "The five key skills of a co-creative leader". I based the content of the talk on a guest blog I wrote called "5 Skills Co-Creative Leaders Need to Know". The audio from this video comes from the recording of this presentation.
