Description

You are invited to a lunch discussion and viewing of a Tedtalk by Margaret Heffernan: Forget the Pecking Order at Work. https://www.ted.com/talks/margaret_heffernan_why_it_s_time_to_forget_the_pecking_order_at_work

"Organizations are often run according to "the superchicken model," where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn't what drives the most high-achieving teams. Business leader Margaret Heffernan observes that it is social cohesion — built every coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help — that leads over time to great results. It's a radical rethink of what drives us to do our best work, and what it means to be a leader. Because as Heffernan points out: "Companies don't have ideas. Only people do.""

Kim Armstrong has collected various materials over the years about leadership and would welcome an opportunity to discuss these in a conversational context.

There will be one session (Noon-1:00 p.m.) every week or couple of weeks starting in June 2017 and there is room for 10 people at each session. Each event will feature an article or a video that participants will be asked to review in advance which will form the basis for the discussion. We will send out the article via email prior to the meeting.

Please bring your own lunch and we will provide cookies, coffee and tea.
