Featured Speakers

Plenary: Reflecting on Leadership Experiences: Rejuvenating Your Leadership

The conference opening plenary panel will explore the speakers’ own lived experiences of leadership during times of great uncertainty. In particular, the discussion will consider ways to navigate difficult leadership situations that require evolving tactics. One thing most people will agree is that leadership is tiring. With this in mind the plenary speakers will consider how they have maintained their own well being and what tactics they engage with to support their rejuvenation to continue their leadership journey.

Activities

Rejuvenation Activities

Integrated Alchemy: Awakening To Your Day Through Purposeful Presence

Start your day through an integration of movement and meditative reflection. Gather with LauraLynn Jansen, a doctoral student in Antioch University’s Ph.D. in Leadership & Change program, for a morning practice to align your inner state of awareness and presence. These sessions will involve engagement along the body-mind spectrum, to set a balanced tone for your day.

This reflective space will be opened-up through gentle movements followed by various reflective practices aimed to refine presence with self and authentic connection with others. You will be offered practical tools in somatic awareness-raising and mental presencing that you can take forward into your daily life as a leader. A few examples of these techniques are breath exploration, sensory perception, stretching of body parts associated with prolonged sitting, and bringing the mind into conscious awareness of the moment.

Creating deep sustainable change begins with self-understanding and mindfulness according to ancient texts and modern leadership theory (Sinclair, 2016; Wheatley, 2017). This offering invites you to heighten your connection with your innate wisdom as part of your path to being a mindfully authentic leader. The word yuj is a Sanskrit term often translated to mean to yoke or to unite. It refers to the interweaving of multiple aspects of self into a place of centeredness. This interweaving is what we will explore together each morning.

Awareness of our patterns and presence are part of the first steps to being a true agent of change intrinsically and extrinsically. It is demonstrated that leaders who are able to generate an understanding of self may then use this knowledge as a means for connecting more profoundly with others (Kernis, 2003; Sinclair, 2016). A portion of the session will also be dedicated to cultivating conscious connection with each other.

No special clothing or props needed, just you.

Global Interconnectedness through Nature-based Mindfulness

This morning rejuvenation practice will invigorate participants to a more holistic connection to self, sentient beings, and the earth. Globally, there is an increased awareness of the importance of natural environments on overall human health and wellbeing (Capaldi et al., 2015; Gray & Colucci-Gray, 2018; Nisbet et al., 2019).

This morning rejuvenation practice will invigorate participants to a more holistic connection to self, sentient beings, and the earth. Globally, there is an increased awareness of the importance of natural environments on overall human health and wellbeing (Capaldi et al., 2015; Gray & Colucci-Gray, 2018; Nisbet et al., 2019). There are many benefits of nature-based mindfulness for humans, most notably enhanced mood, feeling more connected to nature, and reduced stress (Capaldi et al., 2015; Nisbet et al., 2019; Timko Olson et al., 2020). Individuals can experience a connection to nature when they see themselves as part of nature rather than separate (Chaudhury & Banerjee, 2020; Nisbet, 2019). The relationship with nature increases ecological attitudes and behaviors, which can be advantageous to humanity and environmental health. Connecting to nature can also raise an individual’s concern and care for the natural world (Barbaro & Pickett, 2016; Nisbet et al., 2019). Research shows the healing benefits of mindfulness and time in nature, there is increasing interest in combining both activities (Djernis et al., 2019). Nature-based mindfulness practices promote leadership well-being and ecological identity. Thus, sharing a morning practice of nature-based mindfulness can enable attendees to increase awareness of themselves, their well-being, and their connection to the environment.

Optional Pre-Conference Workshop

Gender, Media, and Leadership: A Multimodal Data Analysis

When: Tuesday 14 June 13:30 to 16:30  |  Price: £15
Registration: Limited to 21 registrants.  Register for this workshop and other optional events here. 
Where: Boardroom at Richmond Building, University of Portsmouth Campus
Workshop Hosts: Carole Elliott, Sheffield University Management School & Valerie Stead, Lancaster University Management School

Carole Elliott is Professor of Organisation Studies at Sheffield University Management School, University of Sheffield. She is an associate editor of Gender, Work and Organization, and has previously served as editor-in-chief of Human Resource Development International. She sits on a number of editorial boards, and has published in a variety of journals, including Academy of Management Learning and Education, Organization Studies, Gender, Work and Organization, Management Learning, International Small Business Journal, and Leadership. Her research interests include gender and leadership, Critical HRD, and the development of multimodal analysis techniques for management and organization studies. In 2021 Carole was elected to the British Academy of Management (BAM) College of Fellows, and was the recipient of the Laura Bierema Excellence in Critical HRD by the Academy of HRD (AHRD).

Valerie Stead is Professor of Leadership, Learning and Organization, and Director of the LUMS Academy for Gender, Work and Leadership at Lancaster University Management School, U.K.  Her research examines the relationship between leadership, learning and gender. Recent projects include the development of critical approaches including multi-modal analytical techniques to explore leader and leadership constructions in popular culture. Valerie has published widely, including in Organization Studies, Gender, Work and Organization, Management Learning, Leadership, International Small Business Journal, and has co-edited the Edward Elgar ‘Handbook of Research Methods on Gender and Management’ with Carole Elliott and Sharon Mavin. Valerie is a Fellow of the British Academy of Management, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, and Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Increased attention to media representations of gender and leadership research is revealing the significant role the media plays in shaping how we think about leadership. This includes influencing perceptions as to what constitutes ‘good’ leadership, and who is a legitimate leader (Stead, Elliott, and Gardiner, 2021). To understand media’s role in sustaining masculinist understandings of leadership we require research methods that can interrogate textual and visual forms of communication.

The workshop aims to introduce participants to the use of an advanced qualitative multimodal analytical framework in conducting media research. The workshop will:

  • Introduce participants to a novel analytical framework (Elliott & Stead, 2018) designed to interrogate how text and imagery combine to construct media representations of gender and leadership.
  • Apply the framework using examples of media text and imagery (illustration will be focused on representation of women leaders from the media.),
  • Consider the value of adopting multimodal analytical techniques to their area of research.

Portsmouth and Southsea Station (the main station for Portsmouth) and Portsmouth Harbour Station are both within 10 minutes walking distance of the Faculty of Business and Law where the Conference will be located.  However, we would recommend travelling to Portsmouth and Southsea Station.

Heathrow Airport is 1 hour 30 minutes away by road and offers flights from many airlines and a multitude of international and national destinations. Getting to Portsmouth by rail from Heathrow involves getting the London Underground to London Waterloo and then getting a direct South Western train to Portsmouth & Southsea train station.  Train times are available, and tickets can be purchased, from the National Rail webpage here.

There is a direct National Express coach from Heathrow Airport to the Hard Interchange in Portsmouth which is half a mile from the Faculty of Business and Law buildings.  Coach timetables are available, together with tickets to purchase, from the National Express website here.

There is a direct South Western train service from Southampton Airport Parkway (next to the airport) to Portsmouth & Southsea train station.  Train times are available, and tickets can be purchased, from the National Rail webpage here.

Alternatively, airport pick-ups and returns via local taxi companies are available and, at prices ranging from around £40 (Southampton airport) to £150-75 return (London airports), can often be the cheaper form of travel if two or more persons are travelling.  We would recommend booking and Portsmouth has several taxi firms which can be used:

South Western Railway run a service from London Waterloo to Portsmouth & Southsea train station that leaves every 15 minutes during peak-times and takes just over 1 hour 30 minutes to reach Portsmouth & Southsea train station.
