It’s a difficult time to be a leader. Really difficult. The Geometry of a Leader (GOAL) offers a much-needed retreat for character-driven leaders to step back, connect and gain new tools for leading with their values even — and especially — when it’s hard.
Over three workshops, GOAL participants learn practical ways to be present to the people they serve, humble enough to solicit the wisdom of others and courageous enough to follow their vision despite the cost. They will leave the series inspired and empowered to confidently pursue their call to lead — and to make our community better for all.
Humanizing Your Circles of Influence
Exceptional leaders give people their full attention. They listen to understand. They prioritize human connection. Yet, in our volatile world, leaders often become so preoccupied with all of the problems they feel responsible for fixing that they fail to notice the needs of the people they serve. After this workshop, leaders will return to their homes, workplaces and communities with concrete ways to be present to those around them.
Creating “We” Solutions
Humble leaders know they don’t know it all. They seek input and advice from people with complementary strengths. They are open to new ideas. They are aware of their weaknesses. In this workshop, leaders will explore the key features of humility and learn to synthesize rather than silence the varied voices in their workplaces and communities. Leaders will leave this workshop committed to creating “we” not “me” solutions.
Following Your Vision
There are times leaders need to follow their vision and make an unpopular decision despite opposition. This takes courage. In this final workshop, leaders will learn the attributes of a courageous leader and discuss the challenges of leading with courage – especially when resistance emerges and the cost is great. They will leave this workshop with the tools they need to be successful in their next difficult conversation or decision.
