“New leadership is needed for new times, but it will not come from finding more wily ways to manipulate the external world. It will come as we who serve and teach and lead find the courage to take an inner journey toward both our shadows and our light—a journey that, faithfully pursued, will take us beyond ourselves to become healers of a wounded world.”
– Parker J. Palmer, Author, Activist, and Center for Courage & Renewal Founder
Sustainable, courageous leadership hinges on your ability to know your own values and act on them. When you’re true to yourself, and true with others, that authenticity translates into trust. And trustworthy relationships translate into more effective, wholehearted leaders, teams and results.
The Academy for Leaders is a unique professional development program that will transform your leadership, helping you ignite your courage to lead from within.
The Academy for Leaders isn’t just for formal leaders. The Center for Courage & Renewal believes that the world needs a new kind of leadership, the kind that means having the wisdom and courage to see what is needed and do it. It means acting on your core values, engaging others to do the same as you work together to move common goals forward. It means bringing your whole self to the complex tasks of collaboration, education, healing and change.
If you have ever asked yourself, “how can I contribute to something greater than myself?” you are a new leader.
The Courage & Renewal Academy for Leaders is designed for this new leadership. Imagine a trustworthy space where you are free to explore questions like: What do I offer the world? What inspires me, challenges me, and gives my life meaning? What are my strengths and limitations? How can I lead with compassion? How do I stay true in the midst of trials?
Join like-minded peers from across all professions and take a deep dive into the heart of leadership. Through storytelling, reflection and facilitated discussions, you’ll have an opportunity to reflect on your work, renew your energy and passion for your cause, and strengthen your leadership within a community of practice.
Lead authentically. Lead with integrity.
