These slides reflect a full-day experiential leadership lab at OD Network, 2013.

The dance of privilege is present when individuals in a “power down” position are marginalized, while individuals in a “power up” position experience disconnection. This dynamic has costly impacts.

In the lab, learners learned about 1) global leadership competencies which enable skillful performance when encountering the unknown and threats to self identity. 2) concepts of implicit bias, stereotype threat, and privilege as power dynamics related to structural inequality of many kinds. 3) strategies for global leadership development, and micro-interventions

In the lab, learners were guided through improvisational exercises to engage emotional, rational, somatic, and intuitive selves. We practiced compassionate presence, honoring needs for belonging and feeling valued, and appreciating risk-taking.

This lab is dedicated to the extraordinary change agents, Edie and Charlie Seashore, who both passed in 2013. We engaged in “Seashorian” learning: Edie's humor and reframing of stories of passivity to stories of agency; Charlie's playful explorations of the self.
