Difference can stimulate creativity and the kind of breakthrough innovation organizations need to address today's challenges. The best decisions happen when differences are included, valued and worked with effectively.
However, differences can also activate exclusion, defensiveness, and aggression in ourselves and others. These reactions block clear thinking and skillful action. Over time this pattern hardens us from the inside out and can create serious dysfunction in a team, organization or community.
Whether we work in corporations, governments, nonprofits or schools, we inevitably encounter strong differences.
If you are looking for a better way, and are daring enough to explore new practices, please join us. Together, at this 3 day leadership intensive, we can learn how to engage with difference and, in doing so, better engage the wisdom in our groups or organizations.
At the conference, you’ll find a safe yet challenging place to stretch your way of thinking and open to possibilities for leading with more success in your organization. The curriculum is leading edge, deeply personal and highly engaging. This unique leadership development experience not only expands your thinking and skills, but also connects you to a talented network of professionals.
The conference brings together expertise in the practices of conflict engagement, authentic leadership, and mindfulness. Drawing from proven methodologies, the seasoned faculty team brings a multi-faceted approach to engaging with differences. Far from just adding another “tool in your toolbox,” this event is intentionally designed to work at a deeper level of thinking and acting in the world.
Current research concludes what many of us intuitively know—that traditional leadership programs fall short because they place “too much focus on delivering information and content and not enough on the hard work of developing the leaders themselves” (Nick Petrie, Center for Creative Leadership, 2013). For 17 years, ALIA has been ahead of the curve, integrating mindfulness, creative process, and systems thinking into an integrative model of authentic leadership development. ALIA is part of the Authentic Leadership Center at Naropa University www.naropa.edu.
