Courage to Lead Inspires a Shift

Sandra Copley

Sandra Copley was feeling totally disillusioned in her job with the Santa Barbara Public Health Department before Courage & Renewal changed her whole outlook on leadership. “I began to gently hold and nurture my role as a leader…And accept my worth as a unique force in the community. My paradigm shifted.”

The more passionate we are about our work, the more vital it is that we take time to renew our own spirits — to reflect on the wellsprings of our service to others — to reconnect who we are with what we do.

The benefits are both personal and professional as you slow down to renew and reflect on questions of importance to you.

  • Gain greater access to your inner wisdom and a new depth of self-knowledge
  • Discover a process for discernment to reach clarity around life and career transitions
  • Focus, without distraction, on what matters to you, especially your values and vision, challenges and fears
  • Resolve to live closer to your core commitments
  • Learn principles and practices from our Circle of Trust approach that can be applied to your daily life and work
  • Connect with others seeking similar insights — who listen to and encourage each other, who honor each other’s differences.

These programs and retreats are rooted in the Circle of Trust approach, which has a common set of principles & practices. These principles & practices provide a strong foundation and safe container for a process of shared exploration of vocation, life and work.
