Ten Directions creates developmental learning programs for leaders, coaches, facilitators and consultants.
Ten Directions exists to support the emergence of authentic leadership, conscious organizations and collaborative cultures. We train leaders, facilitators, coaches and consultants through a growing range of online and live programs. We create developmental learning environments and practice communities that drive whole-person transformation and empower skilled practitioners to become excellent Integral Facilitators® and facilitative leaders.
Integral theory informs our signature applications to the field of facilitation and leadership. Our programs combine a rigorous developmental approach with the application of Integral theory and Zen influenced practice.
Ten Directions was formed in 2010 with our first 3-day Integral Facilitator® learning experience. Since then we have built a pathway of training around our deep understanding of what it takes to develop as a facilitative leader. We have trained over a thousand leaders, both online and in programs offered in eight different countries. We’ve certified over 170 facilitative leaders from Hong Kong to Halifax, Stockholm to Sao Paulo, and Dublin to Hyderabad through our in-depth intensives.
Our work is focused on the interpersonal — groups, teams, power dynamics, conflict, communication, collaboration. Our rallying cry is “inner evolution for outer revolution.” We practice being and creating together, because we understand the quintessentially human longing to grow, together.
Sincerity, enthusiasm, intimacy, good humor,
integrity, and rascally determination.
