Bringing the wise and powerful leadership training of Naropa University’s Authentic Leadership Centre together with the wisdom and power of nature at Windhorse Farm. How can we respond with authenticity, courage, and skill to the leadership challenges we face in the world today? What can we learn from the forest about the self-existing qualities of personal and organizational leadership? Authentic Leadership is a process – a journey – anchored in self-awareness and the courage to show up genuinely for the moments that matter. This experiential retreat provides practical methods for cultivating self-awareness, inspiring and engaging others, and taking wise action with confidence and compassion.
Drawing on principles and practices from contemplative traditions aswell as contemporary approaches to leadership and organizational learning, we will create a collaborative learning lab that will foster deep personal insights, enhance interpersonal skills, and increase your overall leadership effectiveness. You are invited to bring yourself fully to this experience, with the questions and issues that matter most in your life and work. You will explore and work with the three competencies of authentic leadership – presence, engagement, and wise action – within the shared context of a diverse group of leaders. Whether you are a “beginner” or a “seasoned professional”, you’ll go deeper into your practice of authentic leadership.
