Elaine’s new chapter “Waking Up to the Power of Reflection to Unlock Transformation in People, Teams and Organisations” has just been published in “Contemporary Leadership Challenges” which was edited by Aida Alvinius.
As Elaine writes in the Abstract to her Chapter:
“In our busy and frenetic world, leaders face over-whelm. Never before has there been so much change on so many fronts demanding attention squeezing out critical reflective time and thinking space.
This is time and space to develop the personal capacities to lead with greater clarity, humanity and wisdom for transformation. Time and space to learn how to reflect on experience, to sense what is needed and to lean into the futures’ potential instead of problem solving based on habitual thinking and yesterday’s logic.
This chapter will give reflection and reflective learning a new rebranding, propelling it from dusty classrooms to become center stage in a leaders toolkit showing how to apply the findings of the authors’ important new research in the workplace.
The new leadership process “Reflect to Create!” emerged from the author’s important new seven “Reflect to Create!” human capacities for inspiring, creating and leading transformational change in today’s VUCA world; and how these can be developed and sustained by four core conditions and four key practices”
