What Is Generating the Shift Toward Authoritarian Leadership? Riane Eisler: Leading at the Edge Conference

September 22, 2020

Riane Eisler invites you to attend the International Leadership Association’s (ILA) global leadership conference, November 5-9, 2020:

“As someone deeply immersed in finding solutions to global violence, environmental destruction, economic inequality, and other systemic challenges, I wanted to invite you to attend Leading at the Edge, the forthcoming International Leadership Association (ILA) live and online, virtual conference that will take place between 5th and 9th of November this year. The ILA believes that leadership and followership can make a difference toward making progress on the intractable issues of our time.

I’ll be presenting a featured session there on What Is Generating the Shift Toward Authoritarian Leadership — and What Can We Do About It? In addition to myself, the panel brings together three other leaders in higher education: Alfonso Montuori (California Institute of Integral Studies); David Peter Stroh (Bridgeway Partners); and Kerubo A Abuya (Empower Change Leadership Circle, LLC).

In addition to my session, you also might be particularly interested in a special session by the Nature Conservancy as well as the sessions pertaining to women & leadership, mindfulness, democracy, and peacebuilding. And for the first time this year, the conference will be offering up to three continuing education credits to those who need them”.

ILA is offering a special “friend of the conference” registration rate:

“The conference will have plenary sessions with thought-leaders like Ron Riggio and Ron Heifetz, as well as leaders in the field like WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesusm, Subhanu Saxena of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and MIT’s Otto Scharmer.

“Conversations With” sessions will feature recipients of ILA’s Lifetime Achievement Award, including Keith Grint, Barbara Kellerman, Henry Mintzberg, Gill Robinson Hickman, and Edgar Schein – all top names in the fields of leadership.

ILA’s global leadership conference brings together leadership research and education with real world experience in a way that sparks new insights and innovative practice. With 400+ live, virtual presentations and workshops the conference offers a rich learning environment.

Furthermore, this isn’t a bunch of “webinars.” You’ll be able to see and converse with other attendees inside and outside of the sessions via ILA’s conference platform, which includes the ability to create spur-of-the-moment, face-to-face virtual networking meetings with other attendees.

As a thank you to the Center for Partnership Studies for their participation, ILA is offering a special “friend of the conference” registration rate, which includes unlimited access to all of the conference session recordings through the end of December 2020″.
