Personal Discovery & Tools for Organizational Evolution

We live and work in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world.

New business models are shifting duties to teams instead of individuals, which means people are now working more closely together. It also means leaders have to adapt their leadership style to guide the intricacies of human dynamics and channel collective knowledge.

How can leaders create learning environments that navigate the complexity of interpersonal relationships, learn (and improve!) through dialogue and conflict, overcome the human element of barriers to change, and support the growth and engagement of their employees?

The New Role of Leadership

Personal Discovery & Tools for Organizational Evolution is a three-day immersive journey focused on helping today’s leaders shift the focus from generating fixes to generating dialogue. You will develop deep insights into yourself and your leadership style, learn how to break the barriers preventing personal, team, and institutional growth, and will create coaching relationships with others who will support you after our immersion has come to a close.

*“Diving deep” can be intense. While we do not currently have a training scheduled, our last event was at a residence that sits on the shore of Lake Anna. Attendees were free to clear their minds by walking the shore, taking a swim, sitting by the fire pit, or just relaxing throughout the expansive lakeshore property. For indoor fun, there was a pool table and movie theater on premise.
