On February 10th Wilmette Institute is launching the 5th offering of the popular course Cultivating Transformative Leadership. Students from this course are incredibly enthusiastic and are sharing what they have learned in a variety of ways. Some have formed groups to study the core book of the course: Transformative Leadership: Developing the Hidden Dimension. Others have made presentations or conducted workshops with organizations in which they are involved. One friend has used the material both in a high school class and a community college.
The following testimonial is from Rachel Patterson in New York City, who has worked as a coach for small and medium businesses for more than 10 years in 14 countries. Rachel affirms:
“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. Like a good painting, I see/remember something new (or more deeply) each time I review my notes. With clear principles and a framework for thinking about leadership (in all kinds of organizations and groups), long-term community-building, unity, problem-solving, and teamwork, it’s useful for anyone who wants to take steps to address the issues we face in a world of inter-connected issues and people. I am looking forward to incorporating some of the elements of Transformative Leadership into my work.”
