Authentic Leadership Group classroom

Authentic Leadership Center

The newly created Authentic Leadership Center combines the network of practitioners and teachers from the acclaimed Authentic Leadership in Action (ALIA) Institute, formerly based in Nova Scotia, Canada, with Naropa's successful Authentic Leadership program. The vision of the Center is to provide transformational learning that draws upon the disciplines of contemplative practice, organizational learning, expressive arts, neuroscience, and complexity science for improved performance at work and in life. Susan Skjei, PhD, who has served in leadership roles in both organizations for the last fifteen years, is the director of the new Center.


As innovative leadership programs, including mindfulness training, become more widely offered, the Authentic Leadership Center will play a critical role in ensuring that leaders in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors can benefit from cutting-edge research and practice.
