August 18-21, 2015, Stowe, VT
The Executive Champions' Workshop (ECW) is a special setting for nurturing new thinking and relationships among executive leaders in today's rapidly changing economic and social landscape.
The ECW has thrived over the years because of a growing desire amongst senior leaders from diverse organizations around the world to engage in deeper dialogue with peers who share their aspirations and face similar challenges. With its distinguished participants, this program has consistently created a distinctive space for deep reflection and conversation around questions that matter.
SoL North America's Foundations for Leadership Program
September 29-October 1, 2015, The Warren Center, Ashland, 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.
