Feature Presentation: From Expression to Impact

 Using Arts based experiential learning for leadership and coaching

Presentation Objectives:

  1. The implications of living in a constant state of change
  2. How the arts can serve as a deep and practical learning process
  3. The theory and science behind arts-based experiential learning
  4. How Creating Futures That Work is pioneering arts-based experiential learning to help individuals, leaders, and teams navigate the new state of unending change



The world has changed dramatically over the past year and a half. For Fred Mandell, this is only the beginning of constant, dramatic, and unpredictable changes.

Fred will share his journey from using the creative process of the arts as a model for navigating life transitions (Becoming a Life Change Artist) to his deep exploration of how the arts can prepare us to thrive in our new, rapidly changing world. You will walk away with an understanding of how integrating the arts into leadership development, innovative thinking, and collaborative team dynamics can change both you
and the world.

Continuing Coach Education Credits (CCEs):

0.75 Core 
0.75 Resource Development

REMINDER: You must participate LIVE and submit Open and Close code submission form to receive the ICF CCE credits. Open and Close codes will be provided verbally during the non-recorded portion of the meeting. 

Speaker Bio: Fred Mandell


Fred Mandell is a founder and principal with Creating Futures That Work, a consultancy that draws on the precision and focus of science and the insights and skills of the arts to elevate leader effectiveness in the areas of collaboration, innovation, organizational culture, and professional development.
Prior to establishing CFTW with Harvey Seifter, Fred served as a senior executive with American Express where he built leading marketing and sales businesses and ran a multi-billion dollar investment company. During his tenure, he introduced new business models for the practice of fee-based financial planning into a large financial services institution.

In 2014 Fred launched The Global Institute for the Arts and Leadership, a not-for-profit entity, whose mission is to build a more peaceful, sustainable, and beautiful world by using the arts to catalyze social change. He currently serves as Chairman of the Board.

He has been teaching the number one rated leadership series at MIT Sloan School of Management called The Leader as Artist since 2013. The Leader as Artist series is unique in the way it demonstrates the application of the art-making process to innovative leadership and organizational vitality.

As an artist, Fred has been featured in the national publication Gallery Guide. Most recently his bronze self-portrait has been commissioned for the international conference on “The Self/Le Soi” co-sponsored by the University of Chicago and the Sorbonne.
