Course Testimonials

EmyBrawley Headshot“Leading from Within gave me the vocabulary and framework to think about leadership in a whole new way.  One thing that continues to resonate for me, is the practice of self-awareness as a tool towards effectiveness at work.  This awareness offers options, and more options provide more opportunities to be effective.”

Emy Brawley, Vice President of Conservation, Openlands (IL)

"There is universal value to the skills that are gained through Leading from Within. The program is really an investment in people. It's not just about building skills, but about helping them grow into the fullness of themselves. It helps people find the parts of themselves that have leadership potential and strengthen those parts."

Nathan Lott, Coordinator, Greater New Orleans Water Collaborative (LA)

Our Approach

During this program, you will learn and apply a set of tools and approaches that will help you use yourself strategically, boost your confidence, and support action with intention. You will gain new perspective about yourself as a leader and the skills necessary to use your leadership. LFW is a book-ended program that starts in the fall with a kick-off three-day retreat-like workshop. During that time, you will be introduced to new tools and approaches to help you function more strategically and collaboratively as a leader.

The learning continues after the first session concludes. You will continue to meet regularly with your co-participants and your executive coach to practice your new skills and receive guidance and support for your current projects.

Later the next spring, the program reconvenes for another workshop to build upon your skills and move you to the next level of learning and leadership development.
