We live in a time of turmoil, beset by pressing issues and calamities both large and small. While courage has always been an essential element of effective leadership, what is different now is our heightened awareness of what’s at stake and our increased recognition of the potential costs of courageousness to leaders and followers. The future requires nothing less than leaders and followers, at all levels and in all locations, acting courageously in their lives, in their communities, and in their organizations.
Of course, the specifics of what courage means and what it means to be courageous, are different for each of us. Our understanding of courageousness depends on our background and experience; on our gender and age; on our race, ethnicity, and culture; and on our relationship to power. However we understand or define courage, how do we answer its call? How do we move beyond and embrace the inherent difficulties and fear that accompany change? How do we nurture the spirit of adventure and the moral compass residing inside each of us? How do we support and encourage courageousness in all of us?
We are delighted to invite you to Ottawa for this important exploration. The Call for Proposals is open through 1 February 2019. We invite you to propose sessions that are interdisciplinary, that are multi-sector, that transcend national and cultural barriers, that explore new theories and innovative practices, and that take advantage of knowledge and traditions from other disciplines and groups.
24-27 October 2019
