Joanne Schroeder: Compassionate Leadership Systems

Tuesday, March 12th from 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM.

It is not a secret that many folks are feeling overwhelmed in this sector. FRP-BC is pleased to offer Compassionate Systems Leadership workshop, as a membership benefit for you and your staff.

Compassionate Systems Leadership (CSL) is a way of leading that helps individuals and groups work together to make positive changes. It’s about learning and growing in three important areas: understanding yourself better (personal mastery), communicating with others in a thoughtful way (reflective or generative interactions), and thinking about how everything is connected in a system (systems thinking).

Compassionate Systems Leadership uses practices that have been proven to be helpful for personal well-being and expands them to include building strong relationships and understanding how the whole system affects the results we want to achieve.

Joanne Schroeder is the Director of Strategy and Innovation at UBC’s Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP). Her role includes leading the newly established Network for Compassionate Systems Leadership in BC Education.

Previously, she served as the Executive Director at the Comox Valley Development Association.

She began her work at HELP in 2000 and previously served as Deputy Director. In her initial role at HELP, she developed and led their knowledge translation activities.

She was also the Provincial Advisor to “Children First”, a community development project that worked in 45 BC communities and was the National Lead Fellow for the Canadian Council for Early Child Development.

Joanne is passionate about building better systems and policies for children and youth, through leveraging innovative practice, community leadership and research.
