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 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.
