Roads Taken is less a map than a meandering, less a history than a reflection, less a presentation than a prism, less a how-to guide than a journey.
Fred Mandell will review his work journey as an outgrowth of a series of animating questions. He will share what motivated him to launch The Global Institute for the Arts and Leadership as a response to the world in which we live. He will reflect on his current arts-based leadership consulting as a way to enliven organizational culture and unlock innovation. Through these reflections, he will provide the opportunity to hold up a mirror to each of our own personal journeys. Fred will share his mistakes, vulnerabilities, insights, surprises in a search for wholeness.
In the spirit of Max Beckmann, the great 20th-century German artist, Fred sees art as a paradigm through which we pursue “the quest of our self that drives us along the eternal and never-ending journey we must all make.”
In this program, participants will understand and appreciate:
- The connection between work/life choices and what matters in our lives and in those of our clients
- Work in the second half as a Creative Choice
- The role of animating questions in making work/life decisions
- The creative power of choice
