“Habits of the Leader’s Heart”: Community of Practice for Leaders in Service Organizations
At a time, when many of us can feel dis-courage-d by the challenges facing our organizations and our communities, we can find new ways to connect with other leaders in “service organizations.” In this bi-weekly six session facilitated community of practice for a cross-generational group of nonprofit and clergy leaders we will:
- Explore what ignites the “heart” of our own leadership and gives us the courage to act
- Create a “space apart” to hone six “habits of the heart” for renewing our leadership
- Draw insights from Parker Palmer’s book Healing the Heart of Democracy
- Find ways to be agents of renewal, courage and resiliency in our organizations and communities
If interested contact Larry Peers at lxpeers_at_gmail_dot_com.
“The heart is where we integrate what we know in our minds with what we know in our bones, the place where our knowledge can become more fully human…When all that we understand of self and world comes together in the center place called the heart, we are more likely to find the courage to act humanely on what we know.” –Parker Palmer
OTHER AVAILABLE PROGRAMS:
“Crafting The Culminating Chapter of Your Career” You owe it to yourself, to your organization and your loved ones to approach retirement in a deliberately thoughtful and meaningful way. Take advantage of this opportunity to envision the “third age” of your personal and professional growth as you approach retirement.
“The Resilient Power of Story to Transform Your Leadership”
Howard Gardiner states that “the ultimate impact of the leader depends most significantly on the particular story that he or she relates or embodies, and the receptions to that story.” In this seminar, we will refine our practices of relating and embodying a leadership story.
“Working On Purpose”-a group coaching program
In this group coaching program, we will invite this question, “What is my purpose?” in as a guest, as an essential question, not just a lofty excursion. Using some guided exercises and assignments, some presentations and group coaching we will create an environment for reviewing our work and lives, considering some purpose-full possibilities, and composing some next steps for “working on purpose.” More information will be available on the Working On Purpose website and blog.
