Next Stage CollaborationTM develops capacity for more creative & thriving collaborations.
This three day retreat teaches the essential integrative skills, frameworks and perspectives that ND leaders will rely on to shape a culture of collaboration.
What is the world calling for, and how do we get there?
Phew! That question feels daunting.
Frankly, we wouldn’t blame you if you clicked through to another page and looked for something else to read….
But inspiration comes quick and deep when you rest – for a moment or two – in the hefty challenge and invitation of that question.
We cannot promise you a simple answer.
(And it’s likely that you are already ‘living’ that that question.)
One thing we can promise is that engaging with others with an open mind, being full hearted, curious, and willing to stretch ‘beyond my expertise’ is a great way to learn what the world is calling for, and how to best respond. Learning new models, and new ways of seeing and listening and inquiring is a great way to respond with more confidence and skill.
Becoming a more conscious, influential, relational leader who can bridge differences and create change is an amazing intention.
Now, imagine being part of a tight knit cadre of leaders with the same desire for impact and the same familiarity with tools and approaches that can better support collaborative work.
Imagine being part of a group of ND leaders who can weave cultures of trust and collaboration, and create a legacy-change for the profession in the years to come.
The next step on this journey is the “Next Stage Collaboration”, a hand-crafted three day retreat and learning experience at the Whidbey Institute, May 22-24, 2020.
