About this Workshop

Over three days, participants will be part of a cohort of colleagues that will move through three stages of leadership development.

  • Leading Self: Learn how to identify your own leadership strengths and purpose, to balance confidence and humility, to shift the role you play at different tables within your collaborative, and to maintain accountability in recognizing and furthering racial equity within your initiative.
  • Leading Others: Learn methods for building trust, understanding different leadership styles, giving and receiving feedback, and facilitating the difficult conversations that are often necessary to achieve greater inclusion, innovation, and alignment.
  • Leading Systems: Learn to embrace an emergent approach to leadership, by adopting mental model shifts that truly acknowledge the complexity of systems change.
