Those engaged in the practice of leadership know the challenge of sustaining yourself and your commitment to deeply held values and beliefs. The more passionate you are about your work, the more vital it is that you take time to renew yourself — to reflect on the wellsprings of your service to others — to reconnect who you are with what you do. This is especially the case in healthcare service. The Courage to Lead program is designed to provide just this type of nurturing environment for leaders. Based on the pioneering work of Dr. Parker Palmer, this retreat utilizes the Circle of Trust© approach developed by the Center for Courage & Renewal, a process that is contemplative in nature and emphasizes deep listening and discernment, slowing down, and creating community that is trustworthy and safe for the soul. At the core of the retreat, participants gain opportunities to renew personal identity, professional integrity, and vocational vitality. Meeting in retreat with a group of other leaders provides the opportunity to build a deep and trusted community of peers.
“NEW LEADERSHIP is needed for new times, but it will not come from finding new and more wily ways to manipulate the external world. It will come as we who lead find the courage to take an inward journey toward both our shadow and light.” ~ Parker Palmer
