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.

 

Discover:

·         How to use art to improve the way you observe and interpret emotional states in your business environment

·         How to strengthen personal and professional relationships in a meaningful and authentic way

Target audience:

·         Middle managers responsible for a team of direct reports
