Leadership conference: call for presentations


The School of Leadership Studies welcomes the RRU community to respond to their Call for Presentations for the Leadership Conference 2015: leadership.complex.world. Faculty, alumni, and students from all schools are invited to submit proposals for consideration. Present a half or full day pre-conference workshop, or a conference breakout session. The School will offer a conference agenda that encourages a lively, interdisciplinary leadership conversation throughout the event, and looks forward to contributions from within the university community and beyond.

 Conference Streams will include:

  • Personal Leadership (examples might include: emotional intelligence, mindfulness, neuroleadership)
  • Values-Based Leadership (examples might include: values-based business and new economy, ecological leadership, appreciative practices, Indigenous leadership) 
  • Health Leadership (examples might come from the organizational, regional, national, or global level, as well as experiences with the LEADS capabilities framework, clinical leadership, among others)
  • Community Leadership (examples might come from private or public sector community-based groups, civic leadership organizations including municipalities, First Nations, or not-for-profit groups, on a regional, national, or global level)
  • Organizational Leadership (examples might come from the private or public sector and represent organizations on a regional, national, or global level, as well as collaborative, multi-sectoral, and/or inter-organizational networks)
  • Emerging Leaders (examples might include youth leadership, the use of social media, alternative ways of organizing work and lifestyle, and inter-generational leadership experiences). 

Your presentation might be drawn from:

  • Experience from the field that highlights professional learning moments from initiatives such as program implementation, project execution, knowledge mobilization, and the like.
  • Case studies in the context of your professional practice or research.
  • Works-in-progress, including examples of professional practice or research that have not worked as well as expected, that generate learning moments, discussion, and potentially feed forward for future practice.
  • Projects related to innovative facilitation, learning, or teaching techniques.
  • Completed research that has practical application.
  • Other proposals related to the conference streams will also be considered.
