The fifth annual Global Gestalt Leadership Conference will explore how today’s business executives can ‘lead with love’.
The virtual conference, produced in Trinidad & Tobago, will bring together delegates from both sides of the Atlantic on April 28, 2022, with a view to creating positive change in management systems and fostering kinder workplaces.
“The 2022 theme ‘Leading with Love’ reflects our collective experience of the global pandemic,” said conference founder Maxine Attong, a Gestalt Executive Coach (PCC) and organizational development and leadership specialist.
“We have all lost, we have suffered and for most of us it was difficult to cope. But we found joy in the simplest of acts and we extended compassion to each other. We began to love. But now as the world has reawakened, we are wondering, ‘How do we move forward?’ Our answer is simple: learn to lead with love,” Attong stated.
Janice Sutherland, founder and CEO of the award-winning leadership and personal development consultancy This Woman Can, will host the event, which offers attendees an in-depth look at leadership styles and the chance to network with one another.
Renowned organizational change advisor Jonno Hanafin will headline the conference, joined by author and life coach Barbara A. Perkins for a panel discussion moderated by Surren Maharaj, president of the Life Coaching Association of Trinidad & Tobago.
Conference attendees will also receive free access from May to October to monthly Love Circles, featuring international speakers, and can take advantage of two-for-one tickets to the 2023 conference.
Tickets for this year’s event are US$120 per person, or US$100 per person for groups of five or more. Partial proceeds from the conference will be used to further youth leadership development programs.
