Culturally-resonant leadership development: leveraging and empowering leaders through ancestral knowledge
Leadership development programs at their core seek to recognize strengths and opportunities for growth. This community-based partnership with Ericka Carmona-Vega, an international human resources leader with over twenty-five years of coaching, training, advocacy, and leadership development experience and Liza Hita, a clinical associate professor of psychology, will explore how to cultivate a wide array of dynamic leadership skills outside “mainstream” management principles, redefining what it is to be an effective leader. Ancestral and cultural knowledge is often the first, and at times, the only leadership development experience diverse young adults have received. They are often taught about their world, surroundings, and relationship with others through a wide array of stories, folktales, myths, and proverbs passed on from generation to generation. It is through this ancestral knowledge that this workshop provides targeted training. The Flor y Canto leadership development workshop will offer a Latinx perspective on culturally-resonant leadership development through exploring familial and cultural knowledge and personalized, strength-based skill building to become their most authentic leader. This can be applied cross-culturally.
