January 8, 2018 Be the Change: Emotional Intelligence In today’s complex, ever-changing environment, organizations and communities need leadership from more people than ever before. Navigating the challenges and opportunities requires increasingly higher levels of adaptability, sensitivity, and awareness. Emotionally intelligent leadership (EIL) offers each one of us a powerful way to consider how to maximize one's own potential, as well as develop the capacity and potential of others. This engaging session will provide participants with opportunities to reflect on what EIL offers them, how to tap into their own strengths and how to bring out the best in others. January 22, 2018 Safe Software: The Power of Teamwork Since its foundation in 1993, Safe Software has grown from a team of two to a team of 150 passionate employees. Led by co-founders Dale Lutz and Don Murray, this team of teams continuously innovates and develops their software which powers the flow of information at the sites of thousands of customers across the world. In this lecture, Dale will discuss the leader’s role in creating, guarding, and serving their teams. The ingredients of high performing cohesive groups will be explored, along with lessons learned in building and shaping teams over 20 years. February 5, 2018 The Weaponization of Free Speech When does free speech become a weapon for oppression? In the digital age, speech has never been freer for the average citizen, but when it instigates hate crimes, terrorism, and bald-faced lies, may we be getting too much of a good thing? As a journalist and writer, Omar Mouallem owes his career to the liberty to report the truth without government interference. Yet, he argues that we've lost touch with real free speech values, that we're dangerously confusing censuring for censorship, and that free speech has become a red herring coopted by the powerful to promote proto-fascist ideas. February 26, 2018 Ethics Sally Armstrong is an award-winning author, journalist, and human rights activist, and she is a member of the Order of Canada. She’ll share her experiences in social justice, with a focus on women’s rights, and show the increasing importance of ethical leadership.
