Meet your facilitators

“This course has completely opened my eyes to the leadership structures around me, and the way I have spent my life responding to them. It has also helped me better understand how we have managed to exploit the earth's resources and people to build those structures. I just wish this was compulsory learning for everyone who sees themselves as a leader”
“Excellent online design/architecture and facilitation.”
"This course has a profound influence on my life and the way I'm looking at myself, my actions, my use of language and the way I'm developing the projects I facilitate."
"The mix of gentle, reflective and meditative practices, joyful play, hard academia and questioning debate and conversation allowed me to engage with each element in a different way, and preventing me from becoming weary mentally or emotionally from too much of one thing."
"A course that challenges existing narratives about what it is to lead and encourages us to unlearn convention wisdom that might be unhelpful (even harmful) in the uncertain times to come"
“It has helped me further develop my skills and emotional awareness of the response I want to make as a contribution to climate action in the future.”
