Practical Learning Opportunities for Transformative Change
About Our training
Online | In-Person
Trusted relationships, and collaborative and interlocking networks and webs are an essential foundation if we are to grow our capacity to do the meshwork that will be essential for building on our strengths and addressing neighbourhood and community challenges.
The transformation we're all seeking needs to originate from within and that means strong and prepared leaders able to think within a futures context.
Additionally, it is essential that local citizens are seen as the experts able to build on their community's assets and aspirations. Since ultimately it's about the leaders in each community being strong, we've learned that training for a local cohort of leaders is the first and most important investment.And, when we talk about leaders, we don't mean just those holding senior positions. We believe everyone leads -- with or without a title.
A Steady Pace
Learning online is efficient and effective. Review materials in advance, meet for live, interactive weekly sessions, and apply the learnings in meaningful ways. Part of the learning journey is also about interacting and sharing with others at a time that's convenient for you!
Personal & Easy
If you'd rather have us come to you, we can do that too! Keynotes, workshops, conference sessions, and retreats are all possibilities.
We provide unique and practical training and coaching that results in leaders in your community who can work together to:
- accelerate community potential for innovation, change and growth
- ensure meaningful and responsive policies, programs, services, and events
- encourage system-thinking and shared leadership, responsibility, and accountability
What People Say About Our Training
For me this course demystified the concept of community development, pulled it from the clouds, and put it on the ground. It's a process, and you get these concepts grounded and the skills you need to be a leader.
We adopted community development strategies drawn directly from this webinar program -- built trusting relationships, applied holistic systems thinking, engaged many sectors of the community and invested them with a true sense of ownership.
I loved the webinars and especially the fact that we could view them later if we missed them. I found myself totally focused - not sure if it was the delivery, material or both but it sure worked for me.
