What We Do

  • The Integrated Work of the Leader©

    The cover of The Integrated Work of the Leader workbook by Katherine Tyler ScottThe point is to become yourself…

    Great leaders hold people, organizations, and communities in trust. However, only with a high level of self-awareness can leaders engage the trust and commitment of others that is necessary to drive – and sustain – organizational excellence. Preparation for this level of leadership involves practice and discipline that enhance your self-awareness and capacity to trust.

    The Integrated Work of the Leader© workbook is focused on expanding your self-awareness and knowledge that are instrumental in improving emotional intelligence. Through a series of contemplative exercises, self assessment tools, and application of theories, this dynamic workbook will help you in discover the the inner journey that leads to being an effective leader.

    This approach reflects the significant shift that is taking place in how leadership and leadership education is understood and taught. It combines the doing and being in leadership so that the whole self of a leader in context becomes vital. Those in positions of leadership will view their responsibilities very differently when they are framed by the lens of  "holding (individuals, organizations, and communities) in trust.®" This framing of leadership evokes a depth of commitment, discipline, and practice that is atypical and challenging to traditional views of leadership.

    Understanding ourselves is a prerequisite for understanding who we are as leaders.

    This workbook is resource to be used in the pursuit of self-knowledge as leaders strive to serve institutions, community, and the larger world.

    We invite you to discover the transformational leader within through the journey of inner work.

  • Conflict Resolution

    Are you concerned that conflict can be destructive?

    Research has demonstrated that teams experiencing no conflict are less efficient, less innovative, less productive, and less committed to the task and to the group.

    A group of individuals in intense situation with finger pointing and shameIt is not the existence of conflict, but the inability to manage it constructively by business, public sector, labor, and government organizations, that has led to an enormous waste of time, money, efficiency, and productivity.
