Join Judith Ann (Judi) Neal for an Intellectual Shamans Webinar
January 26, 2024 12:00 noon EDT
We hope you will join host Sandra Waddock and the International Association for Humanistic Management for an Intellectual Shamans Webinar on Friday, January 26, 2024, at noon EST with Judith Ann (Judi) Neal. Judi pioneered and will discuss the skills and qualities of Edgewalkers, organizational boundary-spanners and risk takers—or the intellectual shamans of the corporate world. Judi will lead a conversation focused on:
Edgewalkers: Leading in Turbulent Times
Edgewalkers are those who walk between worlds and who build bridges between those worlds. They are the shamans, the innovators, the visionaries and the manifesters who get things done that other people thought was impossible. Judi Neal has been studying highly effective leaders who have a strong spiritual life, and has found five qualities and five skills that help them integrate their work and their spirituality. This webinar will talk about why Edgewalkers are needed in these turbulent times and the important role of inner work and spiritual practices for being a leader who has positive impact.
