Leadership introduction


We each develop a personal style and continually evolve in the leadership we show, drawing on a personal practice, our context and its demands, and our wider vision.

Pursuing my own journey, I'm finding that metaphors are often helpful: something to muse on as I reflect on what's been happening, or a challenge to be bolder and try something different, or sometimes an anchor and inspiration when I'm feeling lost and don't know what to do next.

These images here are of metaphors that I keep coming back to:

Leadership metaphors

* Mill and river   *Fire and furnace   * Making a map   * Listening to history

* Contemplating the horizon   * Finding my owls   * Dancing with a goose   * Seeing beyond

* Flow of stillness   * Diving deep  * Outside in, inside out   * Letting go

In the next weeks I'll go into them further, open up some of my experience of them in the stories they resonate with, and in the energy they bring....

In a nutshell

So why should you be interested in Learning in and through the Performing Arts?

The collaborative processes of the performing arts open a pandora's box of possibilities for artistic, personal and organizational development. They are subtle and multi-layered, embodied practices that can yield much more than what individuals bring to them, creatively and in terms of human exchange. My work is about continuing to develop these processes for the twenty-first century, so that artists can adapt to their changing contexts and enable their work to take root as creative entrepreneurs, and so that the processes of the arts can be shared and enhanced through exchange with other disciplines and across cultural contexts.
