Authentic Leadership and Facilitation Training

What if your leadership could be a source of energy, creativity, inspiration, and joy?alft-01

It’s possible to:

  • Learn to lead from your natural gifts
  • Let groups act through you, rather than acting for them
  • Create community that nourishes you, and a life that lights you up.


Over the past 3 years of leading evolutionary communities, I’ve developed a training process that will help you tune into your personal superpowers, read what a group is offering, and lead from authenticity. I’ve taught over 100 leaders and community creators how to work with emergent leadership – agency that comes from within, not without. And I’d love to share this with you.

Our facilitators have taken the social technology of Authentic Relating – empathic, vulnerable communication – into areas from social work to psychotherapy, childrens’ classrooms to the Coast Guard. They have created massive change towards a better world. We teach leaders to bring themselves into their leadership, and students to create from their own motivated joy.

If you want to bring yourself more to your life and your leadership, the Authentic Leadership and Facilitation Training is a great way to discover how. Over the course of the weekend, you’ll:
