    Join the conversation as we discuss Dr. Robert Kegan and Dr. Lisa Lahey's, "An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization." This book club will be led by ODN of New York member, Kate Gerasimova.

    About the book

    “A Radical New Model for Unleashing Your Company's Potential. In most organizations nearly everyone is doing a second job no one is paying them for--namely, covering their weaknesses, trying to look their best, and managing other people's impressions of them. There may be no greater waste of a company's resources. The ultimate cost: neither the organization nor its people are able to realize their full potential. What if a company did everything in its power to create a culture in which everyone--not just select "high potentials"--could overcome their own internal barriers to change and use errors and vulnerabilities as prime opportunities for personal and company growth?”

    Join the conversation as we discuss Liz Wiseman's, "Multipliers: How the best leaders make everyone smarter." This book club will be led by Elise Foster.

    About the book

    “The fundamental role of leaders is no longer knowing and directing, but rather asking and listening—unleashing the capability of everyone around you. There are Diminishersand Multipliers, and it is important to understand the significant effect these types of leaders have on their employees and organizations. Diminishersmake people question their own intelligence and capability. Problems don’t get solved and projects don’t move forward, which becomes costly for an organization in more ways than one. Multipliers make people feel smarter and more capable. Employees feel inspired to come up with creative solutions to problems and move business forward. Multipliers create growth. So what are Multipliers doing to inspire all this creative mojo, and what are Diminishersdoing to kill it?”


    Our Facilitator - Elise Foster

    Elise Foster is the co-author of the Multiplier Effect and executive coach who studied at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and has enabled hundreds of leaders to become even more effective. As a former engineer, she brings her systems engineering mindset to bear as she invites leaders to bring out the best in everyone around them. She is actively involved with her local school district, the Harvard Club of Cincinnati, and the Growth Edge Network (a New Zealand non-profit). She finds that many of her best leadership lessons come from her school-age daughter.

    It’s clear that our world is becoming more complex every day. Clients come to us, specifically because they seek resources and guidance for how to navigate territory for which they feel unprepared. Cultivating the Self for Complexity, which Carolyn developed together with her friend and colleague, Doug Silsbee, addresses the question of how we can cultivate the whole self that can not only survive, but thrive in complexity. This approach to cultivating leaders for complexity weaves together three well-known bodies of work—constructive developmental theory, complexity theory, and Presence-Based Coaching(c) to offer ourselves and our clients a set of powerful practices for sensing, being, and acting in ways that are well-adapted to the complexity we face; the complexity in our context as well as the endless complexity of ourselves (cognition, emotion, and sensation).

    In this webinar, Carolyn will introduce you to some ways in which complexity challenges us and the leaders we support, as well as a model and approach for working skillfully with the complexity, both in ourselves and in our clients.

    You'll learn:

    • What complexity is and how it's different from the world most of us are wired and trained to work with 

    • How learning to see and work with complexity for what it is might enable huge shifts for you and your clients

    • A framework to help you both see and work with complexity through multiple channels



    Our speaker - Carolyn Coughlin

    Carolyn Coughlin is a founding partner at Cultivating Leadership, Growth Edge Coaching and the Growth Edge Network. She works with leaders to help them become their biggest, most complexity-adapted selves and trains coaches in the theory and practice of adult development. Carolyn’s coaching and leadership development work is informed in part by the 10 years she spent as a management consultant, and in even greater part by the journey of her life. She writes, talks and teaches about developing whole leaders (body, mind, heart) to thrive in complexity and to create organizations where others can do the same, with a particular commitment to supporting women to step into and thrive in leadership positions. She is the author of a chapter called “Developmental Coaching to Support the Transition to Self-Authorship” in the forthcoming Jossy Bass Sourcebook, Transforming Adults through Coaching.

      Join the conversation as we discuss Adam Grant's, "Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World." This book club will be led by Kate Gerasimova.

      About the book

      Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent. Learn from an entrepreneur who pitches his start-ups by highlighting the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who overturned the rule of secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees for failing to criticize him, and a TV executive who didn’t even work in comedy but saved Seinfeld from the cutting-room floor. The payoff is a set of groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and improving the status quo.
