Does this sound familiar?

  • Are your conversations going sideways?
  • Are you constantly running into conflict, opposition or uncomfortable situations?
  • Are the practices that have served you in the past not working?
  • Are you not getting the results or progress you hope for?

Its time to build your leadership skills – to practice courage, compassion and responsibility for impact. When you build your ability to lead others, groups and the world around you, you create the momentum for positive change and the opportunity to move from stuck to possible. Learn new ways of being and showing up in tough situations, and also find some new tangible, practical tools to improve your work in the world.
