“The transformative leadership training was a life changing experience that still continues to have a great impact on me and my company.”— John Mackey, Founder, Chairman and CEO, Whole Foods Market
“I cannot thank you enough for bringing your enlightening transformative leadership training to Johns Hopkins Business School. My graduate students collectively and individually thanked me for giving them this opportunity and many had already put in their book orders at Amazon for Social Change 2.0. They could see immediate as well as future application of what they learned from you and were gushing with excitement. It really was just perfect and I am so grateful to you.”— Jaana Myllyluoma, Ph.D., Faculty, Johns Hopkins Carey Business School
“There is so much positive activity that came out of the transformative leadership training, I don’t even know where to begin describing the effect it had on these guys and me. They’re so empowered its crazy. The training has changed many of their lives and the whole way everyone now interacts with one another. They now have a vision rather than a pathology orientation and can identify and transform their limiting beliefs. There are now roundtables set up in the format of the workshop for exchange of best practices and the strengthening of our community. All of this has led to the Rhode Island Fishery becoming a role model for the country. As for me I have been invited and funded by the Sand County Foundation to take the knowledge of how to empower fishery stakeholder groups toward a sustainable fishery to Europe and Africa.”— Kathy Castro, Director, University of Rhode Island Sea Grant Program
“The transformative leadership training has empowered us as leaders to make major transformations in our organizations and the fishery. We have moved from fishermen being forced by government regulations to change, to being pro-active stewards of the fishery. We have shifted from hunting the ocean to cultivating it. We have stepped back from near total failure to unimaginable success. We have gone from almost complete collapse of our industry and livelihoods to making a difference for the Atlantic Ocean. How many people can say they have had a positive impact on the Atlantic Ocean?” — Chris Brown, President of the Commercial Fishermen’s Association
The desire to make the world better is an age-old heroic impulse. Acting on this impulse takes one to profound places of self-knowledge and personal meaning.
Most change agents who begin this journey operate out of pure impulse with only their intuition to guide them. If their will is strong they persevere through the inevitable early discouragement, but often lower their expectation. Some begin resenting the people and culture in which they are trying to bring about change when they encounter resistance. And some give up and act without conviction. This doesn’t have to be the experience of facilitating change. It can be done successfully and elegantly. What is most often missing is the knowledge of how to design and facilitate a transformative change strategy.
In this training you will acquire the strategies of transformative change, the leadership skills to implement them, and fire for the soul to inspire your effort. You will learn the craft of transformative leadership.
