Uplifting Leadership: How Organizations, Teams and Communities Raise Performance
By Andy Hargreaves, Alan Boyle and Alma Harris
“Uplifting actions and words are infectious; their efforts spread out and influence others. We uplift others when we uplift ourselves, and vice versa. We lift each other’s spirits, raise each other up to higher moral ground, and surpass ourselves.” (Hargreaves, Boyle & Harris, 2014, p. 3)
Facilitated by Dr. Beate Planche, with guest involvement of Alan Boyle- Co-Author of “Uplifting Leadership”, this book study will engage participants in compelling discussions throughout the three online sessions.
