Leading from the Inside Out

Session Description

Working for social change requires that we envision and work towards a different kind of future, a world transformed. To realize that vision, we need to work from the inside out, developing our own abilities to lead effectively and powerfully. At the heart of leadership is the courage to be fully human, to deeply care, to take bold risks, to learn and grow, and to stay committed even in the face of never-ending change and uncertainty. In this deep dive, we will join together as change makers to practice bringing our full humanity to our work. 

We will engage in large and small group activities focused on self-reflection, asking relevant questions, and storytelling. We will immerse ourselves in these questions:

  • What drives my commitment to and vision for this work?
  • What does it mean to grow myself to be the leader my community needs?

Learning Objectives

You will leave with:  

  • A deeper understanding of leadership as an embodied, self-reflective practice
  • An inspired and clear vision for your work
  • Practical tools and resources to deal more effectively and adaptively with leadership challenges
  • A community of peers to call on as your journey continues 
Note: This session is an all-day workshop and requires pre-registration. The purpose of the Deep Dives are to give participants an opportunity to spend the entire day thinking and learning about a particular topic or skill.  All Summit attendees will participate in the opening keynote and lunch presentation(s).  Deep Dive workshops are scheduled to take place during the morning and afternoon breakouts.
