Creative Leadership: It’s A Work In Progress

Recently, our Portfolio Manager, Lindsey Padjen, sat down with Peery Foundation Executive Director, Jessamyn Shams-Lau, to discuss what it means to identify as a ‘creative leader.’

They recorded their conversation, providing our very first audio blog! (It’s not really a podcast, but let us know if you like this format and we’ll see what future blogs we can provide in audio format).

In the recording, Lindsey and Jessamyn delve into how creativity is incorporated into Jessamyn’s leadership style, how this comes to life in her work with the PF team and grantees, and some of the benefits and challenges of this style.

If you have stories of how creativity is expressed in your leadership style or team environment, please leave a comment. We’d love to hear of more examples of creative leadership in the social sector!
