Leadership 
for Change

Leadership for Change is my core/signature leadership development program for leaders and aspiring leaders.

The program combines go-at-your-own-pace asynchronous study with collaborative learning. Each week’s lesson includes mindfulness practice, video lectures, readings, and hands-on exercises

For entire organizations, the program is adapted to meet the organizations needs. Supplemental coaching may be offered for
