Evolve: The Art of Transformational Leadership & Facilitation

Are you in the midst of a transition, looking to cultivate your inner leader and build a sustainable community inspired by collaboration?

Many seek a new way of leading, a leadership model that gently dismantles the leader-follower hierarchy while rebuilding a community of empowered people who support and learn from one another while joyfully sharing in responsibility.

Evolve introduces leaders of all kinds to a transformational toolbox, whether they are leaders in their families and communities, coaches, teachers, facilitators, or leading teams in different modalities, and sectors. Facilitation skills and processes within the toolbox will help deepen one’s leadership ability through shared leadership practices. Shared leadership supports the knowing that no one person has all the answers, evolving the leader-follower model into a co-leadership model where all can support and learn from each other.

This program is co-facilitated by members of Edge’s core facilitation team with some special guests. Most importantly, your own gifts, needs, insights, and wisdom will co-create the group program experience as it unfolds.

Experience Transformational Leadership:

It’s all experiential – Together we will actively:

For twenty-five years, the Edge has hosted transformational retreats and programs in nature for a variety of groups and individuals. These experiences led the Edge to co-creating the Way of the Circle, a flexible and universal framework for shared leadership that provides the foundation for their retreats and programs. The Way of the Circle focuses on fundamental principles and elements that are the building blocks of authentic leadership, as inspired by nature.
