Transformative Leadership in this time of uncertainty requires a style of facilitation that transcends and includes the difference of opinion. To facilitate change processes that sustain and endure, leaders need to drop into their raw vulnerability in relation to core diversity issues. To do this leaders need to learn how to come into relationship with the multiple perspectives that move through them, their teams and in the world.
This three-day training will offer you access to innovative techniques and methods and empower you to lean into your uncomfortably in leading. Because you will learn to develop an increased awareness of how the dynamics of rank, power and privilege influence all communication attempts, you will become equipped to respond with curiosity to the emotions and personal experience that are intrinsic to conflict and change.
The course is informed by Dr. Arnold Mindell’s Processwork, a holistic framework, and philosophy of deep democracy. This training engages a trans-disciplinary approach and has embodied learning and increasing awareness at its heart. The approach values an individual or group’s explicit goals and intentions while recognising and making visible the wisdom hidden within their implicit dynamics.
The aims of this leadership training is to provide activists, educators, managers, facilitators, family & community members a learning experience that offers theory and techniques to upskill capacity, to authentically engage with others, manage our responses to the different reactions we come in contact with and to learn to reframe our responsiveness without causing harm.
By joining this personal and professional development training you will explore how challenges, conflicts, failures, and setback can be transformed into renewable energy for creative transformation and growth.
I feel confident I have learnt a lot and more importantly have the direction I need to keep growing as a facilitator. I am looking forward to putting the theory and intense training into my professional practiceSarah Morehouse
My learning experience in the Findhorn Ecovillage exceeded my expectations, we focussed on what is important in life, what really counts! I benefited greatly from my interactions with individuals, with the group and faculty. Together participants learned through experience, were challenged to expand out of our comfort zones and develop professional life skills.Joe , University student
