The Organizational Leadership Practice at CCL has been working with DriveTime for a decade on developing leaders and transforming their leadership culture. DT is one of our case studies on interdependent leadership cultures (full report here, with a blog post summary and update here.) Jon is the EVP and General Counsel at DriveTime and has been there from the beginning. Jon will share their latest insights on becoming more interdependent in their culture: What works?
2. The DAC Framework and Relational Leadership. Our special guests are Robert Burnside and Cindy McCauley. We will discuss “best practices” and “best beliefs” for making DAC sing in a relational way. We will get an update about the Nomadic Learning edition of DAC featured on its online learning platform.
3. Barry Oshry (creator of the Organization Workshop). The theme: The structures we fall into shape our consciousness; we don’t know that, and that’s when the trouble begins. In this session I’ll be working with a wild and readily contestable assumption: that all the people I’ll be describing are intelligent, generous, well-intentioned, and emotionally stable. So what we’ll be exploring is what happens when this healthy cast of characters falls blindly into structures that shape their consciousness resulting in behaviors that are considerably less intelligent, generous, well-intentioned, or emotionally stable.
4. Leadership Beyond Boundaries and SOGI. Our special guest is Steadman Harrison III.. Steadman shares stories about how the big idea of relational leadership helps people develop leadership by freeing them from the demands of heroic leadership.

Steadman is the founder of our CCL office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and is a pioneer of Leadership Essentials.
