Foundations of Authentic Leadership

This experiential 2-day workshop provides practical methods for cultivating self-awareness, inspiring and engaging others, and taking wise action with confidence and compassion. Drawing on principles and practices from contemplative traditions as well as contemporary approaches to leadership and organizational learning, we will create a powerful, collaborative learning lab.

How can we respond with authenticity, courage and skill to the leadership challenges we face in our families, communities and workplaces? Authentic leadership is a process – a journey – anchored in self-awareness and the courage to genuinely show up for the moments that matter, and effectively lead the changes you want to see in your organization, your community, and your world.
