The Science of Happiness
Classroom
Instructors: Paul Mohapel

What makes you truly happy? While this may seem easy to determine, research suggests most people are actually poor at judging what is deeply fulfilling. Happiness is in fact a complex emotion. Examine a wealth of recent scientific research that challenges many of our strongly held assumptions about what makes us "happy". See how parts of your brain often “deceive you” into falsely believing something should bring happiness when in fact it does not. Learn “happiness practices” to take home.

Leveraging Your Leadership Strengths

This course offers ways for leaders to identify and leverage the strengths of their people to increase work engagement and innovation. You will learn to identify and advocate for your personal strengths using pragmatic strategies.

Your Genius is Calling: The Courage to Be Who You...
Classroom
Instructors: Hilary Leighton

It takes conscious courage to listen for what whispers to the soul, especially within a culture that tends to denigrate the impulses of the deeper self-intuition, feeling, sensing, instinct, imagination and dreams. It is a great loss to let these calls fall away, or worse yet, deny them entirely. Clear a space to bring your original blessings to bear, awaken to what initiates you toward life’s deeper purpose and your own true nature. Step onto your genuine (genius) path and then live to give it away.

Leading Complex Systems
Classroom
Instructors: Dave Whittington, Phil Cady

Leading Complex Systems is an exciting, highly relevant and real-world driven program designed to fully engage leaders in furthering their capacity to lead the systems they work in and with. When we see issues and challenges in our systems as being caused by our unique circumstances, driven by the various individual personalities involved, then so, too, are our strategies: fix, fire or rotate the person. The Leading Complex Systems program changes this pattern and focuses on helping participants learn to provide leadership that addresses issues systemically rather than personally. Through the application of experiential learning designs, participants quickly learn and apply essential systems leadership strategies to projects and challenges they bring with them to the program.

Meaningful Conversations
Classroom
Instructors: Patricia Galaczy

So much of what we accomplish together, or fail to accomplish together, depends upon how we talk and how we listen. Conversations create our cultures and our relationships.
