Leadership Beyond Polarities

Karin Jironet

Aired: Thursday, 30 April 2020 | 13:00 - 14:00 EDT

View On-Demand (Log in Required)

The global developments to which we are currently bearing witness and enduring require new thinking about leading and leadership. No longer can we simply adjust a position to the particular requirements of a specific organization at any given time. The challenge for leaders today is, in a sense what it has always been, to see the bigger picture and act in the interests of the whole rather than out of selfish or individual motives. We must have the courage to look away from our screens to understand wholeness, interconnectedness, and the relationships between personal development and collective evolution. But how?

As we all isolate together to have a collective impact, this webinar will offer hope though through a multidisciplinary exploration that brings together psychology, theology, mysticism, business, leadership, and the humanities. Focusing on The Divine Comedy and Dante's seven sins and virtues in Purgatory, Karin Jironet will offer a process of personal transformation grounded in Jungian psychology, spirituality, and interviews with successful leaders. Further explored in her recent book, Feminine Leadership: Personal Development Beyond Polarities (Routledge 2020), this webinar will present a pioneering and refreshed vision of balanced leadership and a simple process to help us become the people and leaders that our hearts and souls require.
