A Conversation on Creative Leadership

Where: 200 Liberty Street, 16th Floor, New York, NY 10281

When:6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Workshop Organizer: NYCMER

Creativity - the use of the imagination or original ideas - is not typically embraced as a crucial leadership skill. In this era of constant innovation, successful leadership is increasingly associated with creativity, in addition to traditional qualities such as decisiveness, accountability, and vision. Within the museum field, how do creativity and leadership intersect to inform the next generation of guidance and management for our institutions?

 

This panel discussion, led by creative professionals who have served the museum community, will provide a fresh perspective on the qualities of a leader. Foundational to the conversation will be the characteristics of a creative leader and how they can be identified and cultivated over time. After the exchange, panelists will host 10-minute “speed-mentoring” sessions with small groups of participants to discuss specific areas of professional development.

 

Please bring any questions you might have related to leadership skills across the disciplines of education, exhibitions, management, or finance.
