About: Dara Barlin, founder of the Center for Transforming Culture, will read from, discuss, and sign her book, A New Kind of Power

Many government agencies still use a traditional model of management which relies on a strong top-down, factory-based approach to motivate employees. This worked well for a while, but research now shows this leadership can easily lead to a slew of human-related problems such as employee disengagement, turf wars, blame-games, bias, poor decision-making, and status quo thinking. These issues can turn into big headaches for managers, undermine policy efforts, and reduce trust in government. Luckily, Human-Centered Leadership has emerged as a new management method uniquely positioned to counteract these issues by ensuring all employees bring their best selves and their best work to the team. This book tells the stories of several of these Human-Centered Leaders and highlights their most successful strategies for creating thriving team culture, fostering more trust with the community, and producing more meaningful outcomes for all.

Dara Barlin has over two decades of experience facilitating trust-building conversations, conducting research to inform policy, and organizing action-driven campaigns for positive change. Her research has been featured at the United Nations, U.S. Congress, and the UK’s Institute for Public Policy Research. In 2012 she led a campaign that brought thousands of people together from 97 countries to create a blueprint for global change; then initiated a platform of support for citizen-inspired ideas to achieve that change. Her methods have been touted as exceptional by state, national and international policy leaders.
