Leading From the Inside Out: Transforming Leadership

Leadership involves creating the vision, setting the direction and inspiring others to make extraordinary things happen. Before a leader can effectively inspire others, they must cultivate their understanding of who they are as a leader. 

It is no secret that how we understand leadership has evolved and continues to expand as we learn and adapt in our ever-changing world. Authenticity, vulnerability and courage are often used to describe the greatest examples of leadership and yet, we tend to not dedicate enough time to grow these qualities within ourselves. The Leading From the Inside Out program starts there.

This series is composed of 5 parts and uses the following tactics for learning:

  • Comprehensive assessments and experiential learning
  • Interactive exercises and practical tools 
  • Large group, small group and personal reflection
  • Culturally diverse understandings of Leadership

As a participant, you will explore who you are as a Leader - your characteristics, your blind spots and what sets you apart. You will be part of a cohort with a shared interest in learning and growing. This series is designed for new and seasoned leaders who want to improve themselves, empower people, grow their organization, and succeed in the complex environments in which they operate, while enhancing social good. It will challenge participants to move beyond popular definitions of leadership to become more aware, strategic, innovative, and to be a valued contributor to the bigger picture. 

Participants come away from this series not only with notes and practical tools, but with something far more valuable – an approach that allows leaders to:

  • Tackle problems more creatively
  • Elevate listening and communicate more effectively
  • Work more productively, equitably and collaboratively
  • Foster inclusive and healthy relationships
  • Build resilience and deepen character

TARGET AUDIENCE: Individuals who want to learn, grow, and elevate their own quality of leadership; new, potential and seasoned leaders, managers, supervisors, directors, executive directors, etc.
