Program Description

In this seasonal program of four retreats, leaders from the serving professions – education, health care, nonprofits, clergy and others – will be equipped to listen, live and lead with integrity so they can serve their organizations with courage.

In these retreats we will move from the “what” and “how” questions of leadership to the “who” – who is the person who shows up to embrace leadership roles and responsibilities more fully and wholly. In the process participants will discover again the deep connection between who they are and what they do.
