Emergent Leadership Training

Have you completed the ALT and now want to take your leadership to a whole new level?

Are you already a graduate of the Authentic Leadership Training?*

Do you want to bring your guidance a step deeper, with personalized attention, iterative feedback, tons of room to try new things and learn from others?

This course is co-led by Sara Ness, founder and head instigator at Authentic Revolution, and Josh Levin, lead circling trainer at the Integral Center. It’s held only twice a year and does tend to fill fast, so if you’re interested, apply below!



Time: The course runs from Wednesday evening until Sunday evening.

Logistics: The ELT is held at a beautiful Airbnb in central Austin. Breakfast and lunch is provided each day. If you’re coming in from out of town, we will house you for the duration of the course at the venue or with a community member nearby.

Cost: A $1200 investment, or payment plan of $315/month for 4 months (including credit fees). Some partial scholarships are available for those doing active facilitation or outreach work within their local communities. If you need a scholarship, please mention that in your application form.

Who should attend? We’ve had community leaders, company managers, psychotherapists, teachers, group facilitators, and more. The training is customizable to the area in which you want to practice, as long as your focus includes work with groups either in teaching or general leadership. You must be:

  • Coachable: willing to take in and apply feedback without defensiveness
  • Agentic: willing to speak up for your own needs without blaming your experience on others. If you have a hard time speaking up in a group, that’s fine – we’ll invite the feedback safely and often – but if you tend to wait until the end of a workshop to complain about how it wasn’t what you wanted, this is not a good fit for you.
  • Experimental: willing to try new things

We hope to see you at the ELT!

* Note: We do occasionally accept facilitators who have not graduated the ALT, if you have comparable experience or training. Feel free to apply!
