We are all in this together, yet we are also leading individual lives. Take time to come together with others across generations to explore personal and professional edges of leadership. The beautiful setting of the Green Mountain Monastery provides inspiration to weave together the threads of our journeys. Breathe fresh air into your vision while building new connections for the journey ahead.
"Everyone who draws a breath "takes the lead" many times a day...Our lives as leaders both demand and deserve reflection. They demand reflection because we must know what is in our hearts, lest our leadership do more harm than good. They deserve reflection because it is often challenging to sustain the heart to lead." Parker J. Palmer
Using a workshop model initiated by the Berrett-Koehler Foundation, Intergenerational Leadership Exchanges bring together leaders from a variety of fields and backgrounds for a day-long think-tank in which to exchange ideas, inspiration, and practical means for addressing today's most critical concerns. The 2019 Spring Exchange will foster skills of mindful leadership, generous listening, and holding tension in life-giving ways.
The workshop will include:
Spaciousness for reflection
Small group discussion & collaboration
Opportunity to challenge generational myths
Lessons from the natural world
Collective inspiration to lead with conviction & grace
Lunch is included. We invite you to bring a friend, an acquaintance, or someone whose leadership you would like to encourage.
