Leading with Humanity:
A Need for Critical Change
Register: By Wednesday, October 27, midnight
Are you a leader? Perhaps you don’t see yourself as one, but in fact, we are all leaders in some aspect of our lives—parent, teacher, coach, artist, business owner, corporate officer, or any other role where people depend on us or look to us for guidance. Our speaker this month, Atul Khosla, is knowledgeable and passionate about leadership, having hired, developed, and worked with top business leaders and partnered with academics around the world. But even more, he has observed leaders and found that those who lead with humanity can remain resourceful in a changing environment and inspire the people they lead with unflagging strength and energy.
Atul will share with us his view of “being fully human,” which is built on a foundation of compassion, dignity, courage, truthfulness, values, radiant energy, and resilience. He refers to the building blocks of this foundation as “personal core” and “capacity.” During the session, we will discuss how those who lead with humanity build trust and generate confidence. Atul will also offer ways that we can consciously build and nurture our personal core and broaden our capacity in order to close the gap between our “being” and our “doing.”
Atul Khosla is the founder of Leadership et' Humanite' (LEH) located in Chicago, US. He is an influential global leader with experience in human resources (HR) that spans thirty years and three continents.
