THE 2ND ANNUAL ICPAK CHAPTER SEMINAR – UNITED KINGDOM
Date: 13TH – 16TH JUNE 2017
VENUE: Holiday Inn London Regent’s Park – Carburton Street, London, W1W 5EE, United Kingdom
Theme: Visionary Leadership for Organizational Success
Visionary leaders are the builders of a new dawn, working with imagination, insight, and boldness. They present a challenge that calls forth the best in people and brings them together around a shared sense of purpose. They work with the power of intentionality and alignment with a higher purpose. Their eyes are on the horizon, not just on the near at hand. They are social innovators and change agents, seeing the big picture and thinking strategically. There is a profound interconnectedness between the leader and the whole, and true visionary leaders serve the good of the whole. They recognize that there is some truth on both sides of most polarized issues in our society today. They search for solutions that transcend the usual adversarial approaches and address the causal level of problems.
