October 14th - 16th, 2022

Leadership isn’t something you can learn only from books.

Effective leadership requires practice: the chance to try, do it "wrong", get feedback, and try again.

But practicing leadership skills can be scary. We’re afraid we might mess up, or freeze. We might lose people's trust. We might miss the moment to say the right thing. 

To learn, we need:

  1. A safe space where we can try new things, and see others model them as well.
  2. A community that is committed to our success, and ready to hold us so we can learn from what we did wrong.
  3. Experiences of leading from our most authentic self where the risk is low, but the rewards are great.

Want to experience that?

Over the past 10 years of leading evolutionary communities, Authentic Revolution has developed a training process that will help you tune into your personal knowledge and intuition, read what a group needs, adjust course quickly, and lead from authenticity.

Our 800+ graduates have taken the social technology of Authentic Relating into areas from therapy sessions to executive teams, children’s classrooms to the Coast Guard. And 98% of them would recommend this training to other leaders.

Whatever you're leading - groups, life, friendships - come play, come try, come learn. Come practice being the leader you've always wanted to be, in a community that wants exactly who you are.

Research Benefits of the Authentic Leadership Training

Training ordinarily gives you information that satisfies the intellect and helps you to understand a thing.

Sometimes, training fills your imagination with creative ideas about what you could do in the world.

Some fills your heart with the energy and inspiration to go forth and actually do the work.

This beautifully-crafted training weekend does all of the above, wrapped in an incredibly supportive, transformative experience.

I felt the weekend course was outstanding! One of the best personal and professional development courses I have ever taken. The facilitators created such a safe space for me to practice being vulnerable. The environment (venue and delicious meals) was very enriching and nourishing. The whole weekend was well organized with clear instructions.
