Flash Seminar: Human-Centered Leadership

Aspen Leadership seminars meet people where they are in their leadership journey and then guides them to the next level. 

On Wednesday, June 21 from 4:30PM-5:30PM EST, join a free Flash Seminar on Rooting Leadership in Humanity with the Director of Seminars at the Aspen Institute, Kalissa Hendrickson. 

How do we embed our core values in our leadership vision and actions? How do our perspectives on human nature play a role in our professional decisions? During the hour, explore these questions and uncover how your answers influence your personal and professional leadership decisions.

Aspen seminars leverage a unique method of moderated, text-based, dialogue that transforms leaders’ ability to understand their own values and achieve meaningful leadership growth. This Flash Seminar is a chance to get a glimpse into the Seminar experience, including the signature Aspen Executive Seminars on Leadership, Values, and the Good Society

We'll start with a short reading as a jumping off point for dialogue. Expect to be engaged and participate throughout the duration of the hour. Please be prepared with your camera and a microphone on!

  • Steadfast understanding of personal leadership values
  • Improved capacity to listen, communicate, and lead
  • Heightened ability to inspire others and drive change
  • Greater self-awareness and capacity for self-correction
  • Increased sense of purpose and mission
  • Enhanced understanding of what motivates people
