Society for Organizational Learning: Foundations for Leadership Program
March 25-27, 2015, DoubleTree Hotel, Bedford, MA
Deepen your capacity to lead effectively in this intensive three-day program, based on the leadership development process described in The Fifth Discipline, by Peter Senge, identified as a seminal management book by Harvard Business Review. Participants in Foundations for Leadership will explore what it takes to create an environment where leadership is a shared responsibility, naturally embedded in the fabric of an organization and community.
Participants will leave with a new set of skills, tools and understanding of how they can facilitate meaningful change, both within their organizations and in their personal lives. The special contribution of this leadership course emerges as participants make the profound connections between personal mastery and systems thinking, seeing that deep change in systems and in oneself are inseparable from each other.
This course is intended for everyone committed to deepening their capacity for effective leadership; teams are encouraged to attend to further develop their collective leadership.

With its distinguished participants, this program has consistently created a distinctive space for deep reflection and conversation around questions that matter.
Deep Conversation around Questions That Matter
The ECW is not a training session. Nor is it a typical conference. It is both personal and substantive in the way that only deep conversation among peers can be.
