Our courses and programs help you tap into your values and strengths, challenge harmful systems and build collective power to transform the status quo. We do this in an immersive and shared learning environment where you'll learn more than skills, you'll grow your voice and your agency to create the conditions in which you thrive. Together we'll decenter the dominant narratives about leadership and success, and widen our perspective on work beyond the grind so we can affirm the ways in which you bring value.
Are you ready to cultivate alternative ways of being in relationship with yourself, your work, and your community?
It's Personal: Everything you have lived has value. You'll dig deep into your lived experiences and align with your values and strengths to define success and contribution on your own terms.
It's Systemic: Together we'll uncover and confront the systems that are harmful and disconnected from what’s important to you. You'll challenge these narratives and widen your perspective on work.
It's Collective: We're not meant to do this work alone. Supported by your cohort, you'll cultivate collective and relational ways of working that honour our interdependence and humanity.
