Speaker: Alex Mosely, Head of Curriculum Enhancement, University of Leicester, UK

Leadership, management and strategy are often seen as the least playful of roles in organisations – whether in business or in higher education. They are formal, cold, often delivered from on high to those down below. Set in stone as The Way It Is. Freire suggested an alternative to this: that communities, through scaffolded processes, can be more effective in leading and strategizing themselves than the traditional imposed model.

In this talk, Dr Alex Mosely will examine the way that play – as a social activity – can support a Freire-ian approach to leadership: and how leadership through playful facilitation might offer a more effective future model for organisations.
