Bridging Perspectives

In Bridging Perspectives we work to ground leaders in an understanding of potential differences in perspectives that exist within organizations. Three frameworks are provided to help leaders: understand and manage our reactions to the perspectives of others, listen empathically, and build bridges across perspectives to create new possibilities amongst us.

This session launches leaders and teams to the next level organizationally as it provides concrete activities and practices to help bridge the gaps that exist between us all.

Leading with Courage

In Leading with Courage, we explore and interact around ideas of vulnerability, trust, values, and resilience. Based off of research shared in Brené Brown’s book Dare to Lead, this workshop gives a group time to individually reflect and work together to start important conversations around what they would like to change or adjust around leading authentically. Using breakout groups, assessment tools, and structured reflections, we strive to create space for courageous actions to take shape.
