Shared Leadership: the Co-Directorship Model

Oct 3, 2017 11:00 AM Pacific Standard Time (US and Canada)

As the need to recognize leadership as process and collective endeavor expands, we need to question as well how the current, dominant cultural paradigm of heroic leadership has permeated organizational life and leadership. We can learn from communities where leadership is often shared and from organizations that have been experimenting with distributed leadership and flattening hierarchies.  Some organizations have been experimenting with a co-directorship model. The Whitman Institute who implemented this model 3 years ago and we are fortunate that Co-Directors, John Esterle and Pia Infante have offered to share their experience in a conversation about why they chose this model, the benefits of being co-directors, the structure, challenges and how they have dealt with them, and lessons along the way. This will be a video conversation opened up to participants for your questions.
