Leadership Academy

Sound Options Group, LLC presents,

Developing the Heart and Mind of a Leader

Become a stronger, more effective leader through the engagement of both your Heart and your Mind.

We invite to join a community of leaders committed to:

  • Diving deeply into the role and function of leadership,
  • Answering the three essential questions of a leader,
  • Exploring the role and function of leadership in a range of situations,
  • Practicing the function of leadership in the context of diverse relationships
  • Strengthening your capacity for engaging others in shared vision
  • Applying the framework of knowing-doing-being to personal and professional development
  • Building communities and organizations characterized by strong trust and social capital, and
  • Developing your capacity for courage and vulnerability in order to effectively lead through challenging situations

Developing the Heart and Mind of a Leader is committed to creating a community of leaders/learners who will:

  • Support each other in the work of leadership, and
  • Create and maintain a safe space to practice being a leader, follower, and learner.

Each academy experience includes time spent in face-to-face shared learning retreats, and in monthly small group coaching calls designed for participants to discuss their personal action related to new learning and challenges of practice.
