Building Futures: Boards and Citizenship
Professor Judith McLean – Chair Arts Education (QUT/ QPAC), Queensland University of Technology
Citizenship is a way of being in the world rooted in the knowledge that I am a member of a vast community of human and nonhuman beings that I depend on for essentials I could never provide for myself.
― Parker J. Palmer, Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of The Human Spirit.
Professor McLean explores the meaning of adaptiveness, relationships, citizenry, collaboration, risk and resilience, essential concepts for boards governing in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world. McLean investigates the need for ‘caring and daring’ in high functioning board leadership and management using both case studies and contemporary theory.
Working with boards and executive teams, McLean identifies people’s intrinsic motivations and how these, combined with collaborative thinking and action, transform organisations.
