Kurt Kwan (right) is a powerful Twin Cities community leader, using theater to help advance fairness and opportunity for all.
Unlike most of the leaders we have featured, Kurt Kwan uses theater as a leadership canvas. He has appeared on nearly every important stage in the Twin Cities and touched hundreds of corporate audiences across the country through Breaking Ice. He has a strong, solid command of his own personal leadership. He is a community developer who really knows how to get powerful people (who don’t look like one another) leading together.
Personally, I’ve grown by watching him masterfully break down silliness, ignorance and naïveté. He is especially gifted at answering the “where are you from?” question. Attendees at last year’s Good Leadership Conference were moved to a standing ovation by the Leading Together performance, anchored by Kurt Kwan. Watch a clip here. On Friday morning, we’ll get a sample of that magic and we’ll all get to work on our answers to the “where are you from?” question.
Good leaders today make a habit of discovering opportunity comes in many shapes, sizes, abilities and colors. And we surround ourselves with people who help us understand our own personal bias and harvest the richness of where we are from.
Please share with us: what naïveté have you encountered about where you are from?
Then please join us at the Good Leadership Breakfast this Friday.
