Elevating Your Leadership: A Call to Learn from Your Team's Wisdom (Part 2 of 2)


Want to elevate your leadership skills in 2024? Before you start, forget the conventional wisdom of learning only from those who lead—sometimes, the most valuable insights come from those who are led.

Join us for a dynamic two-part webinar series where we will explore original research of leaders who shifted the culture of their organization, by elevating the leadership wisdom found in the often-unheard voices of those they were leading.

Part 1: Unveiling the Unsung Wisdom

In our first session, we’ll explore why those being led are an often-overlooked source of invaluable leadership wisdom. Discover practical, low-maintenance methods for leaders to glean meaningful insights without resorting to burdensome practices (large 360 reviews, burdensome surveys, etc.). We’ll uncover the untapped potential of learning from your team and preview key lessons for a more impactful leadership journey.

Part 2: Lessons in a Case Study of Learning

Dive into leadership practices through original research focused on one organization that harnessed the wisdom of those they lead to elevate their culture and practice. This session serves as both a guide and a case study, offering tangible takeaways and illustrating the profound wisdom leaders can extract from those they lead every day.

By the end of this series, you’ll not only possess the tools to integrate lessons from your team but also gain an understanding of the transformative impact such an approach can have in your specific leadership context. Don’t just lead—lead with wisdom from all corners.


  • Explore eight characteristics of effective leadership distilled from an example with education professionals.
  • Identify the transferable elements within this wisdom, that can enhance leadership effectiveness across diverse contexts.
