Authentic Leadership Training

What if your leadership could be a source of energy, creativity, inspiration, and joy?

It’s possible to:

  • Learn to lead from your natural gifts
  • Let groups act through you, rather than acting for them
  • Create community that nourishes you, and a life that lights you up.
Authentic Leadership

Meet Your Facilitator: Sara Ness

Over the past 5 years of leading evolutionary communities, I’ve developed a training process that will help you tune into your personal superpowers, read what a group is offering, and lead from authenticity. I’ve taught over 200 leaders and community creators how to work with emergent leadership: agency that comes from within, not without. And I’d love to share this with you.

Our facilitators have taken the social technology of Authentic Relating – empathic, vulnerable communication – into areas from social work to psychotherapy, children’s classrooms to the Coast Guard. They have created massive change towards a better world. We teach leaders to bring themselves into their leadership, and students to create from their own motivated joy.

If you want to bring yourself more to your life and your leadership, the Authentic Leadership and Facilitation Training is a great way to discover how.

Over the course of the weekend, you’ll:
  • Get practice recognizing and speaking your truth, in a way that connects you more with yourself and with others
  • Learn to speak from what truly matters to you, in any interaction
  • Discover your own personal Leadership Superpower
  • Get direct, continuous practice and feedback on leading experiences for a group
  • Learn how to create the flow of an event, choosing and ordering activities to lead people through an experiential journey
  • Create deep connections
  • Have FUN!

“[This] workshop brought out the inner badass leader that I’ve kept hidden behind walls of insecurity for years…through fun and challenging exercises and games, we got to know ourselves and each other, and I left feeling empowered to lead my own workshops with the tangible leadership skills that I learned. Thank you to Sara and all of the other participants for such a gift.”
