What does “leadership” mean, once it’s been stripped of the mindset of domination? How do we go about transforming ourselves and the groups, teams, and organizations in which we participate? Since its initial formulation 25 years ago, Transformative Leadership has been applied in education, health, youth programs, community development and in both nonprofit and for-profit organizations in five continents. The course questions existing mental models of human nature, society, and leadership that impede progress toward a just, united world community, proposing an explicit, principle-based framework that can bolster cooperative action in teams, organizations and communities. The course is open to all and is especially useful to those who are involved in social action or participating in the discourse of society.


Course Text: Core text for the course: Chapters 1 – 4 of Transformative Leadership: Developing the Hidden Dimension by Eloy Anello, Joan Hernandez, May Khadem (2014). Please purchase this course textbook, either in paper or as an e-book: Amazon print or ebook.


Testimonial: “This course on Transformative Leadership packs a LOT of valuable concepts into seven weeks. It helps us think through the style and principles of leadership we need in the fast-changing, multiple-global-crises world we now live in, where collaboration and a sense of unity are more necessary than ever." --Rachel Patterson, NYC (read the full testimonial)
