This workshop aims to explore the role of the follower in enabling leadership, the leader’s twofold obligation to the present and the future, issues around power and ‘powerful-ness’, as well as the relevance of this in a work context. We will use both the metaphor and the reality of ballroom dancing to explore and challenge our behaviour and assumptions in our roles as leaders and followers in a mix of practical dance exercises and reflection. Since this is ‘work in progress’, participants’ contributions are essential to the outcome. There is no need to bring a partner, but be prepared to partner up and dance! Some prior dance experience (of any style) may be helpful, but is not necessary.
