HOST LEADERSHIP – Jason Pascoe – GCI Australia
In a world of uncertainty, dealing with complex or ‘wicked’ problems, can be overwhelming. Often, our views of leadership sit somewhere between the metaphor of Hero or Servant. Introducing the new, yet ancient, metaphor of Host, can support and guide the thinking, strategy and actions of the modern leader.This keynote address introduces the metaphor of Host and begins to explore the 6 roles and 4 positions of this type of leader as described in the acclaimed book by Dr Mark McKergow and Helen Bailey, Host: Six New Roles of Engagement (2014).

Lastly, the importance of compassion to others, and how to enhance this on a daily basis will be discussed.
