Patricia Makokis presents in the Lougheed College Lectures

March 03, 2022 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM


Serve with Humility: 领导 is Action, Not Position!

Mobilizing change can be as simple as one step at a time, one walk at a time, 和 one person at a time. Dr. Makokis will speak about her leadership journey, going back to the mid 1990’s when she started formally studying leadership. That academic journey gave her the opportunity to include Indigenous ways of leading, which means leading collaboratively, with compassion, 和善良. Fast forward to 2021, when the leadership gurus write about leading with intuition, collaboration, 和 shared leadership. So, is the new really the old?

Studying leadership helped Dr. Makokis validate, affirm 和 make space for Cree ways of leading as taught to her by Elders. 领导 is a lifelong learning journey that we are all called into, together. We are all related as red, yellow, black 和 white family—all my ally relations. In this presentation, Dr. Makokis will give you tools to harness the power of your community to work together 和 mobilize change.
