Training and Development

For 99.99% of our collective history, humans have regularly, daily, stared into fires. It connects with something deep inside of us. Great training is like that, it reaches us; it meets us in a core place inside.  This is where change happens. This magical, exciting, sometimes scary space is where things get real.

 

Sometimes change happens in an instant. Other times it happens slowly over time as we integrate new ways of understanding ourselves, our team, our organizations, and the world in which we live and grow.  An integrated leadership program makes all of these shifts more likely to happen in the first place, and much, much more likely that they take root in the core of these leaders.

“You cannot teach a person anything;
you can only help them find it within themselves.”
Galileo

It features quarterly workshops, 1:1 coaching, and group coaching sessions augemented with selected books, media, and other support materials. The curriculum is modular allowing organizations to select individual topics or the full program. The entire program dovetails and builds upon itself over 12 months to allow new competencies to develop and integrate into each leader’s busy life.  It is organized into phases as shown below:
