Share the Learning
Conversations of Fierce Love and Activism
In this unprecedented time of division and the dismantling of rights, benefits and international relationships, Leadership that Works is initiating a series of calls for coaches, intended to broaden the application of skills that promote communication with self, like-minded others, and others with whom we disagree.
Share The Learning is a six-month series of 90-minute calls held on the last Wednesday of the month that offer time for small group reflection, skill demonstrations with faculty and participants, coaching practice, and practical discussion of applicability in a range of scenarios.
All calls will be held via Zoom video conferencing. Pre-registration is required for the FREE calls. Calls will be recorded and made available for reviewing after the live call.
Topics covered over the six months:
Conversations with Self
March 29, 2017 at 11 AM Eastern
As 2017 unfolds, we are pulled harder and in new directions as we are asked to respond from a level of activism that we may not already have built into our daily lives. This begs a conversation with ourselves around, what are we passionate about? How far are we willing to go to advocate for what we believe in and still maintain work and private lives? What new values are we honoring? What are we dishonoring? What parts of us speak up as we do, and what is our relationship to them? How do we continue to fill our reservoir of fierce self-love that helps balance us? Who are we becoming in this time, in service of fulfilling what vision?
Conversations with Like-Minded Others
April 26, 2017 at 11 AM Eastern
We have families and friends who are our lives, who we love down to our marrow, who sustain us and who we would fight for, as fiercely as we love them, to protect them. What conversations are being asked to happen now? Maybe they’re around time and shared responsibility, whether that’s around maintaining a household, raising children or caring for an elderly parent. Maybe they’re about revisiting shared purpose and vision, to create a foundation to sustain us. What new agreements need to be made? What is important to communicate and listen to from children?
Conversations with Others We Disagree With (2 Teleclasses)
PART 1: May 31, 2017 at 11 AM Eastern
PART 2: June 28, 2017 at 11 AM Eastern
Whether we are taking on conversations with people of different political beliefs, or have a dispute with a colleague, negotiating conflict from our reservoir of love and respect may be even more critical and even more challenging. Which “I am a..” do we bring to the conversation? What is our Coach’s Stand? What does it take for us to wear someone else’s shoes for even one minute? How do we talk to a partner that is on the “other side”? What are we willing to risk to have these conversations, to talk to someone we might not like or trust? Where might there be commonality that surprises us, or frighten us? How do we un-hook ourselves from our outrage and connect with fierce love so we can have a conversation?
Conversations with Silence
July 26, 2017 at 11 AM Eastern
In the midst of everything, we have to find the space to stop and just be, to connect with something greater than us, whether it’s a greater sense of purpose or a greater sense of soul and spirit. What is that purpose, and what do we sense spirit wants for us? How do we consciously connect with spirit and purpose daily, hourly? How do we weave it into our broader conversations to support our activism, our selves?
Conversations Moving Forward
August 30, 2017 at 11 AM Eastern
What is available to you now? What are some successes to report, and where to you still get stuck? There will be small group time for people to share scenarios of success as well as ones they want suggestions for engagement. What’s next, from here?
