Learning Unlimited: Poetry for the Leader Inside You
Tue, January 30, 2018 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Who says leadership starts at the top? Wonder if it actually starts at the bottom- at the very bottom of our own hearts and soul. Perhaps what we need are tools to plumb, polish and project the unique qualities and wisdom we already have deep inside us. Tools that help us genuinely connect with our selves, others and other, then our ability to skillfully influence and lead in any situation will naturally follow. Come hear Dale Biron discuss how poetry helps us accomplish all these things and more in his new book: Poetry For The Leader Inside You – A Search and Rescue Mission For the Heart and Soul. Whether you lead a whole team or a team of just you, an entire organization or a pack of children or grandchildren, you’ll find tips, tricks and some beautiful and stunning language to take with you.
Dale Biron believes the powerful language of poetry has the capacity to enrich and support our lives in unique and practical ways. For over 25 years Dale has coached and presented to a large number of extraordinary leaders, individuals and audiences fulfilling his mission to support others in both their work and personal lives. Dale is changing how timeless narratives and poems are applied and experienced. Bucking tradition, he presents poetry in story-rich, entertaining and engaging ways seeking to ignite the mind unleash the imagination and touch the heart and soul.
