Level 2 - Self Guided course ​

Discover Your Leadership Moment

A Self-guided. Prepare yourself to lead consequential change. The purpose of this self-guided Discover Your Leadership Moment course is to prepare you for the inner work of leading change. However, with a bit of creativity – and a bit of courage – you can also use the course materials to engage your team in your ‘outer’ work of learning change.

Level 3 - Self Guided Course

Leverage Your Leadership Moment

Is there a tough and seemingly intractable problem you face in your work or civic life? 

Leading any form of change initiative is complex. You need to work across organizational boundaries, build partnerships, deal with conflict and overcome differences in values, visions and desired outcomes.  Plus you need to have a thick skin!

Drawing on years of sharp-end experience in the field, the workshop builds your professional and personal capacity to: lead in complex, political, ambiguous environments; manage the personal risks and pressures of leadership; build vibrant alliances for cross-border collaboration; and design strategies for generating change. You are invited to bring a specific project, initiative or leadership challenge to work on during our time together.
