​Leadership for Change

​ Leadership for Change is a three-day group relations conference held each January and July at USD.

July 13-15, 2018

Aims of the Conference

To engage in a process of inquiry designed to provide opportunities for learning how to:

  • Work in the vividness of the moment
  • Probe experiences, interactions and behaviors as they emerge in order to uncover possible meanings, patterns and connections that might otherwise remain hidden or be mislabeled and discounted
  • Shift embedded “habits of mind” that de-sensitize us to realities not named or recognized within our existing framework(s) that foster powerlessness or alienation
  • Recognize, interpret and use the wisdom and insights that emerge in collective settings – even when facts are unclear and circumstances are changing
  • Take risks of power and love by learning to "let go" of attachments to particular outcomes

In order to cultivate the conditions for change — personal, community, organizational and planetary changes — that promote healing and affirm life.
