The Fellowship Program

Shakti Leadership

Egypt

Something is out of sync with leadership today.

Feminine energy in leadership is largely absent from our professional lives; and incorporating it can help companies become more balanced and integrated.

When women lead differently, something BIG happens.

If you are concerned that too many leaders, men and women alike, are buying into a notion of leadership that exclusively emphasizes traditionally ‘masculine’ qualities, win-at-all-costs and yearn for leadership that is balanced; this course is for you.

The Shakti Fellowship evolved from the internationally acclaimed book ‘Shakti Leadership’ authored by Nilima Bhat and Raj Sisodia.

Like no other, this fellowship program reveals an archetype that is generative, cooperative, creative, inclusive, and empathic. While traditionally regarded as feminine qualities, we all have them! In the Indian yogic tradition, they are symbolic of Shakti, the energy source that powers all life.

Handpicked Shakti Fellows journey over a period of nine months and learn how to access this infinite energy and lead from their whole self.

What we hope for you:

Discovery – How do you keep up with the latest research? Techniques? Innovation? You will be inspired by work being done in your backyard and across the globe. You’ll hear updates from the leaders in the field and untold stories about ordinary people having an extraordinary impact. You’ll encounter new ways to approach situations that you’ve been stuck in and tools that help implement Mindfulness into your workplace easier. You’ll learn from the best of the best and engage with peers that are in the trenches facing the same issues you face daily.

Growth  – How do you have a greater impact? Work with competing priorities? Not enough time? Not enough money? You’ve got to get creative and hone your craft. You will discover new ways to approach old problems, learn to deliver more effective results with slight modifications to your technique and how to have greater success while avoiding burn out. You will leave with a deeper sense of self, knowing how to apply Mindfulness to your profession with more skills and how to bring Mindfulness into your workplace with greater effectiveness.

Connect –  How do you ensure that when you leave the Summit that you have a support system to fall back on? You’ll be part of a unique gathering of people, all of whom are interested in exploring this emerging path of leadership excellence. We know how important it’s going to be for you to connect with others at this event, so we’re creating an environment that encourages peer-to-peer learning and community-building. In addition to keynote talks, main stage presentations, workshops and mindfulness practice, there will be opportunities for making personal connections through small round tables, organic group discussions and social events.

Basic Facilitator Training – Boulder, CO – 9 Days

Shadow Work

PROVIDENCE, RI

The Basic Facilitator Training might be exactly what you are looking for. It provides substantial structure for facilitating Shadow Work® processes together with lots of experiential practice time.  We train very small groups of facilitators so you can receive plenty of mentoring and guidance from us as you practice the processes.

You will discover how to use the power of the Shadow Work® processes to liberate those parts of yourself and others that have been repressed and denied.  The training also provides you with the opportunity for some personal growth as you work with the shadows that might block your ability to facilitate – ­­or just live the life you want – by unlocking your true power and experience your gifts and strengths in a setting designed for group safety and individual choice.

Besides learning to facilitate Shadow Work ® processes, you will also be shown the four basic “Shifts in Perception” we use to illuminate the four most difficult shadows you will encounter.  Learning to understand what’s really beneath the most difficult shadows gives you leverage for dealing with all people.  You will learn how each of the four biggest shadows grew out of a particular set of wounds, and how it can be unraveled and mended by the ShadowWork® processes.

Presence-Based Leadership: A Retreat for Coaches and Leaders

Presence Based Coaching

3717 Bend of Ivy Rd Marshall, NC

We all know, from our own visceral experience, that the world is complex and unpredictable. Many of us, and our clients, are in the midst of tremendous challenges; we seek resources and guidance for how to navigate territory for which we feel unprepared.

This new context demands new and resourceful ways for sensing the world and constructing meaning. It demands that we not only understand complexity as an external phenomenon, but also work skillfully and holistically with the complexity internal to us as leaders and humans.

This emerging Presence-Based® Leadership body of work gives us radical new perspectives and integrative practices for navigating this terrain. This work is a synthesis with deep roots in complexity work, leadership development, somatics, interpersonal neurobiology, and developmental psychology and coaching.

The retreat draws from the foundations of Presence-Based Coaching and the pioneering work of Carolyn Coughlin and her colleagues with complexity and adult development in some of the world’s leading organizations. Doug Silsbee’s new book also provides a major new synthesis of these important streams. This is the third time this retreat will be offered at Bend of Ivy Lodge.

One Moment® Time Mastery

One Moment Company

Prime Meridian, Greenwich, London

Great leaders lead on time.

Not  boxed in by a congested daily schedule, they don’t confuse being ‘busy’ with being real and being present each time, every time. They model healthy time habits for their organizations because they know that their personal time practices profoundly impact those around them. They create the time needed to truly lead. And they seem able to do this with space and with ease.

The day-long seminar, held in Greenwich, London–one of the most important sites in the history of human timekeeping–will be a deep dive into your beliefs and choices about time.

You will learn how to transcend the daily struggle with ‘busy’, find the kinds of time you really need, and discover that by creating more space in your mind, you may even have more time than you think. And you will learn our disruptive approach to  time, enabling you to meet the emerging challenges of 21st century leadership.

The One Moment® Time Mastery program will help you:

  • identify the factors that have forged your relationship with time
  • penetrate the mystery of time
  • develop the skills and power to make time work for you

Immunity to Change Facilitator’s Workshops

Minds at Work

Doubletree Suites Boston/Cambridge 400 Soldiers Field Road Boston, MA 02134

This three-day workshop is the first step in developing knowledge and experience with the ITC methodology. Participants learn how to use the powerful Immunity Map assessment tool in both individual coaching and group workshop settings to uncover the hidden immune system that prevents change.

The Immunity to Change Approach

What happens when your clients want to change but find themselves stuck in old patterns?  The Immunity to Change (ITC) methodology is designed to help individuals, teams and organizations attain deeply sought changes by bringing their internal unconscious resistance to change to light.  This award-winning coaching method is based on years of research in adult development and has supported individuals, teams, and organizations in every sector and geography to succeed in meeting their improvement goals.

Over the three days, participants join other coaches, consultants, organizational development officers, corporate trainers and others from around the world to learn about and practice how to support their clients in diagnosing and overturning the immune system and realizing their critical improvement goals.

We offer this program four times per year: March 27-29, June 12-14, September 18-20, and December 4-6.  It is a prerequisite for all other Minds at Work ITC programs.

Our next workshop is coming up in March!

Participants experience ITC as both coach and “client.” There are two intensive, interactive seminars here in Cambridge, two group video-conferences, and each participant is paired with a personal certified ITC coach and mentor who will guide them through the various aspects of ITC. Our dual approach gives participants a deep, holistic understanding of Immunity to Change and enables them to demonstrate skillful ITC coaching.

Presencing Institue

Multiple Locations

Drawing on the arts and contemplative traditions, Social Presencing Theater brings to the surface a clearer sense of the relationships, hidden dynamics, and emerging possibilities inherent in a team, organization or larger system. It allows co-creators in a given system to gain insight into the current situation, seeing potential opportunities for change. It sets the ground for creative collective action.
“Theater” here denotes an empty stage or a blank canvas where the different aspects and roles of the system can be embodied. In that space, the roles can interact in fresh and creative ways to reveal emerging possibilities hidden in the system. It is “the art of making a true move.”

5 Elements Constellation Workshop

In this work the elements represent five aspects of the Self. Each of the 5 elements, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and Fire have many associations and significance and it is an intra-psychic type of constellation. Additionally, there are two cycles that help and promote health and harmony, similarly to the ‘Order of Love’ from Bert Hellinger. When these two cycles are affected or disrupted these lead to internal dynamics that support ways of being, issues, and patterns that weigh us down or holds us back. These are further explained at the beginning of the workshop.

This process is insightful, diagnostic, and expands the person’s view of pertinent life issues. From this new expanded awareness the work progresses towards a resolution, towards a more harmonious, strengthening way of being. By seeing the deeper reality beneath presenting problems is enlightening, hugely relieving and creates real movement. When these movements are supported and happen, we are more integrated, congruent and calm. These help us gather more of ourselves and our resources, easing our way forward in life. This approach supports us experience life with a greater level of harmony with ourselves and with everything and everyone who is important to us.

Developing Better Leaders through Coaching, Emotional Intelligence, Renewal and Resonant Relationships

Cape Cod Institute

Using their own research and that of close colleagues, Professors Richard E. Boyatzis and Scott N. Taylor will lead the class through a series of exercises, reviewing research showing how effective leaders use emotional, social and cognitive intelligence to build better relationships, ones that resonate with the people around them — all of the people around them. To reach and sustain that degree of effectiveness, leaders need to engage in renewal practices for themselves and the people around them — and renewing the potency of their relationships. Topics will be explored as to how and what emotional and social intelligence is and where it fits with cognitive intelligence. Research from 37 behavioral, longitudinal studies, as well as 2 fMRI neuroimaging studies and 2 hormonal studies will show how coaching to vision and resonant relationship is far more effective than coaching to goals or problems. The underlying theory is Intentional Change Theory and how to create moments of the psychophysiological state called the Positive Emotional Attractor versus the Negative Emotional Attractor. Exercises will provide introductions and practice in coaching with compassion versus coaching for compliance. The applicability to other forms of developmental relationships, like leadership, parenting, medical care, clerical counseling and so forth will be examined and explored.

Embodied Self-Experience: Enhancing Awareness in Clinical Practice through Meditation, Movement, and Voice

Cape Cod Institute

In this highly experiential workshop, participants will explore embodiment, self-experience, and how clinicians can use both with clients who have a history of trauma. Licia offers experiential exercises that create a safe way to explore an interpersonal and neurobiological perspective to therapeutic interactions. Participants will learn how such awareness, starting from the first moments a clinician meets a client, can inform the process of the session.

The latest research shows that our ability to be aware of our bodies impacts how we process sensations and memories, and how we heal from traumatic events. When we have intolerable sensations such as gut wrench and heartache, our heart races, our breathing becomes shallow, our abilities to track time, be present and process language become diminished. The nervous system gets overwhelmed, the body gets so aroused and reactive that the calm and relaxed state needed for healing and connection is difficult to imagine, let alone reach.

Verbally-oriented therapists may wonder how this knowledge can be applied to bring an embodied orientation into clinical practice. How does the therapist help a client learn to calm down their nervous system and become able to tolerate what they feel and notice about themselves? There is no way to teach or guide someone else in attuned self-awareness if you are not able to get into that state yourself.

As therapists, our own body awareness is an important barometer to track the states of both our clients and us within each session. In this workshop, Licia guides discovery through meditation, movement, theater exercises and play to show how this awareness affects the therapeutic container–safety and ability to be present with what emerges within the session. Based on the upcoming book, The Body Keeps the Score Workbook, this program offers an array of non-verbal, experiential exercises drawn from theater, guided focusing, dance, meditation, yoga, bodywork, and Embodied Voice.

Conscious Leadership: A Unified Model of Leadership Development

Cape Cod Institute

 

Consciousness and performance—personal, organizational, and systemic—are fundamentally connected. The organization will be structured and perform at the predominant level of consciousness of its leadership. If we want higher-order performance, individually and organizationally, consciousness must be restructured.

This workshop will provide a powerful leadership development experience for both those seeking to improve their own organizations and those serving clients as organizational development consultants, coaches, and therapists. It will introduce you to a unified model of leadership that integrates most of the best theory and research to emerge over the past 50 years in the fields of leadership, psychology, human potential, and even spirituality. At the core of this model are the Stages of Adult Development frameworks that are just now finding their way into our approaches to leadership effectiveness.

The workshop will include a self-assessment using the Leadership Circle Profile, which provides personal insight through the lens of the Unified Model. It will introduce five leadership practices (listed in the outline below) that will reliably boot up higher-level leadership.
