Get Unstuck from the Muck: leading self, leading others

It’s easy to get stuck in the muck of transformation and change. As a leader you must get unstuck because your role is to help people see where the organization is going and enable them to bring their best - and help them get unstuck sometimes too. Our organizations are collections of human beings and in order to transform an organization we must transform ourselves by working through the journey of getting stuck/unstuck repeatedly.


This talk is an experience, a story of partnership between client and consultant where you will be able to see your own path through the eyes of another leader. With Jasmine, a performance coach, using unique techniques and experiments to take a whole human approach, Julie was able to transform herself and create tectonic shifts in her teams and organization. She learned to “see” to get unstuck, enable her own leadership performance, and shift the organization and continues the journey today.
