Coffee & Conversation: Community of Practice
April 15, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am
This month’s topic: The Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly
Why do you go to work each day? Do you have a dream that you are working toward?
If you are a positional leader in a company do you know why the people who work with you come to work each day?
In Matthew Kelly’s book, The Dream Manager, each of us, especially those in a positional leadership role is invited to understand the power of dreams to bring out the best version of him or herself. The book is a story of a fictional company that is grappling with real problems of high turnover and low morale, not unlike what is happening in companies across the globe right now. The Dream Manager is about the connection between the dreams we hold and the culture of a workplace that makes achieving those dreams possible.
Based on the ideas in the book, we will:
- Understand how the engagement concepts in the book reflect servant leadership,
- Create an individual ‘Dream List,’
- And, develop ways to create an environment where you can be the best version of yourself, while at the same time moving the company forward to being the best version of itself.
In small group discussions and leadership exercises, you will take away tools, ideas, and resources for implementing the dream manager philosophy, personally and in your workplace. This session will be facilitated by Christa Williams, Executive Director and Learning Facilitator at Sophia.
*You do not need to read the book to attend.
About this Conversation
Coffee & Conversation is a platform for learning about your individual servant leadership strengths and learning new practices through small group discussion, facilitated conversations, and personal reflection. This event happens on the third Friday of each month from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. CST via Zoom.
Registration is required for the Zoom link. Registration is open now here!
Community of Practice sessions are amazing opportunities for any and all area leaders to gather and learn from each other. Through these monthly sessions, attendees build, share, and learn from others as a community of servant leaders. It’s highly interactive and each month a different servant leadership topic is explored. The same topic is covered during both sessions monthly (Coffee & Conversation and Leaders Do Lunch).
