Become the Kind of Leader the World Needs Now
Whether guiding a family, working in an organization, running a business, or holding public office, leadership involves deciding what matters most. Today, the old “command and control” leadership model is giving way to “connect and collaborate,” and women are playing a central role in this important shift. This workshop is by application only. Please submit your materials according to the directions on this page.
This highly experiential workshop is for women who want to use their leadership to create a caring, just, and sustainable future for everybody. Through reflection, dialogue, writing, yoga, meditation, and exploring nature, we delve into our leadership stories, learn from each other, and create a shared understanding of what is needed to bring greater consciousness into the world.
Guided by expert teachers, we examine four women’s leadership essentials—values, voice, vision, and voyage—in an intimate setting. Together we:
- Articulate our core values and the values that underlie creating a culture of care
- Strengthen our capacity to communicate in an impactful manner
- Create a compelling and actionable vision for our leadership goals
- Sketch a year’s plan to put our values into action, elevate our leadership voice, and advance our vision for change
Whether you are a seasoned leader or beginning your leadership journey, this intensive can help you be the courageous, wise, and nurturing leader the world needs today.
