POWERS OF LEADERSHIP: A DISTINCTIVE YEAR-LONG SEASONAL RETREAT CYCLE
This four part program of the Whidbey Institute allows you to gain perspective, develop new insight, and strengthen your skills and commitment to work on behalf of a more just, sustainable, and prosperous world.

In traditional societies, a village was often built around a “commons,” a public space in which the shared life of the community took place. In today’s interdependent and complex world, the new commons includes diverse cultures and a wide variety of distinct institutions, as well as the oceans, the air, seeds, forests, water, and cyberspace. It is global in scope, yet personal in impact.

Leadership today requires the ability to see patterns in complex systems, the interdependence of diverse communities, and morally ambiguous challenges. We can no longer survive by functioning as separate individuals or independent organizations. The art of leadership requires a connective imagination, an informed conscience, and practiced competence.

The Powers of Leadership retreat series convenes a diverse cohort of people across strategic fields to gain perspective on the currents of change moving in these times.
