ART AS A TOOLBOX FOR LEADERSHIP INSIGHTS
By Professor Ina Toegel
Research about leadership has made important advances, emphasizing the integral role of interpreting and demonstrating emotion for successful leadership. While effective teaching methods recognize the importance of experiential learning, they rarely incorporate art as a method for improving leadership skills. Yet, art constitutes an important toolbox for improving our understanding of the emotional context that surrounds us.
It is along these lines that Professor Ina Toegel is presenting new approaches to improve the depth of leaders’ understanding of emotions – their own and those of their followers. This Discovery Event will draw on visual arts, literature, music, cinema, performing arts, etc. to present insights about different aspects of emotion: authenticity, intensity, empathy, and the strengthening of relationships. During this event, participants will assess their depth of emotion, while working in an experiential way. No prior knowledge, skill, or experience is required.
