Change Leader


About

The Change Leader Program is a professional development course with an active network of course graduates. Participants attend a three-day immersive institute with instruction on assessing environments and the communication and facilitation skills necessary to implement change. Following the institute, Change Leaders practice these skills by completing a certification project. These certified Change Leaders form a network of leaders that share a common language, mentor each other, and convene through leadership circles and conferences.

“The Change Leader program taught me incredible skills that i could use to impact my community in so many ways.”



Certification Projects

To complete their training, Change Leaders design a project, applying the concepts they learned in the Institute. After examining their environment to identify a need, they plan a response, engage others, identify resources, negotiate, honor resistance, adjust plans as necessary and implement change.  Each certification project is unique.
