Leadership for the 21st Century: Chaos, Conflict and Courage
Leadership for the 21st Century: Chaos, Conflict and Courage is a provocative program that introduces a set of conceptual frameworks and a unique teaching method designed to challenge your fundamental assumptions about how you can courageously and effectively exercise leadership and authority during difficult times. The five-day program requires participants to be actively engaged on several levels - in the classroom, in small groups, and in individual reflection.

We will explore a wide range of leadership strategies and practice new ways of exercising leadership, whether in a position of authority or just one member of a group.

Great Leadership: Developing Practical Leadership Skills
This program is based on the premise that leadership is not a genetic inheritance. It’s a skill to acquire and master. A journey to commence and complete. This program will provide you a framework for that skill and a template for that journey. For more information, click here. Dates:March 17-18, 2014
Leadership is about change: being able to make things happen with, and through, other people. Yet the world within which leaders operate is complex, dynamic, and unpredictable. To be effective as a leader, one needs to understand that world (i.e., how things work within one’s organization and one’s industry) but also willing and able to challenge the status quo. One needs to be able to articulate a compelling vision, but also to get that vision implemented. One needs to be highly competent as an individual contributor, yet also highly effective in motivating and inspiring others. In addition, leaders need to find the right balance between traditional top-down approaches to leading and collaborative/distributed approaches, and to work within a context that is less and less about control and formal authority and more and more about trust and informal influence.
