PEER COMMUNITY

Contemplative conversations

You’re invited to join in free conversations and reflections on leadership and coaching. To flourish in a changing world, we must be able to lead through complexity with full awareness of our own impact. These discussions consider ways to expand our influence on the wider world.

What’s on the agenda?

Although no two Conversations are the same, they all share a common theme – amplifying the power of relationship to lead change for a world of change. Whether you’re developing leadership within yourself and others, supporting collaborative teams, or reflecting on the evolution of a coaching practice, you’ll find a topic to interest you.

Have you noticed that you – and your team and organization – are more successful at leading some change initiatives than others? How does the way we make sense of the world influence our capacity to lead change?

We’re calling transformation and innovation leaders, HR and OD leaders, and humanitarians and change leaders to consider their own road maps to transformation. Each month over the course of four months, we’ll explore these questions and more. Join us for one session or all of them!

The Moments

These moments are our gift to you – brief, simple forays into reflective practice. Over five days, receive five prompts designed to stir your usual patterns and nudge you out of your comfort zone.

Reflective Moments in Courageous Authenticity 

Cultivate courage and compassion.

As change leaders, we see potential and are frequently called to challenge the status quo. To hold this role effectively, we must nurture both skill and tenderness in ourselves. We cultivate the courage to reveal what is actually happening, along with the compassion to meet people where they are.

We invite you to dive into this five-day reflection on courageous authenticity – a conversation with your inner change leader.

Reflective Moments in Courageous Authenticity

Anytime • No cost

Courageous authenticity can be a strength and a hindrance, depending on how you hold it. For instance, while we may see what change needs to happen (and are willing to rip off the bandaid), others may take it personally and become defensive. These reflective moments encourage you to examine your relationship with courageous authenticity.

About the Series

  • Each day for five days, you will receive an email with a quote and a set of questions.
  • Expect to spend seven minutes a day (or more, if you wish) considering these simple. contemplative questions.
