Spring 2022 Schedule

March 2, 2022 @ 1:00 – 2:00pm (online via zoom)

  • John Cimino will talk about Leadership and the Inner Work of Art.
  • The talk will present the article Leadership and the Inner Work of Art as an exploration and underscoring of the aesthetic dimension of leadership.  In addition, the talk will include a real-world proof of concept by pointing to two innovations that have emerged from mining this aesthetic dimension.  These are the Concerts of Ideas as an aesthetic instrument for catalyzing new thinking, and the Renaissance Center as an institutional catalyst for shifting how we approach complex global challenges and the design and delivery of higher education itself. The Renaissance Center seeks to cultivate and challenge the common interests of educators, leaders from business and government, artists, scientists and entrepreneurs, and to serve as a springboard to collaboration, research and social change. It is an interdisciplinary hub for innovation, whole-systems thinking, whole-enterprise or whole-campus discourse, renewal and transformation.
