Raven Institute is connecting hearts, minds, and hands - bringing people together in a good way for a rich exchange of learning with this full-day Leadership Challenge workshop .  With the goal of a diverse representation of leaders, participants will develop their leadership skills, and have an opportunity to build bridges between different worldviews, wisdom, and leadership practices.
Immensely practical and hands-on, The Leadership Challenge® Workshop is designed to inspire, engage, and help leaders develop the skills needed to meet whatever leadership challenges lay ahead. Built around The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®, engaging participants in a number of thought-provoking experiences and dialogue.

This tool provides us with some guidance to consider how we “do” leadership in our everyday lives, as leaders of communities, families, organizations, and nations. Along the way, contributors will collaboratively co-create practical strategies for how they can each apply the concepts to one or more of their real-life challenges they currently face as leaders.

Participants will gain an alternative lens to their leadership practice and ability to Model the Way; Inspire a Shared Vision; Challenge the Process; Enable Others to Act: Encourage the Heart. 
Included with your investment:
  • The Leadership Challenge Participant Workbook ($110.00 value)
  • The Leadership Challenge 5 Practices Reminder Card
  • ​Lunch

It is important to us that this learning is available to everyone. If the cost is a barrier to your participation, please contact us for a 'creative tuition' conversation. We do our best to be as accessible as we can.

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 23, 2018                                    
8:30 AM-4:30 PM

Brave-hearted leadership is needed and being called forth; we are at an urgent and disruptive time in human history that calls on our best selves to lead with courage, love and fierce determination.   
Let’s explore: 
What is warriorship?  What does it mean to lead brave-hearted? 
How can we best access this wisdom? And sustain it?  And inspire it in others? 
How do we develop brave-hearted principles as well as practice warriorship with more grace and mastery?   How can we build a community of diverse warriors who can individually and collectively contribute to transformative change?
This engaging workshop will harness the energy and wisdom in the room to co-create a safe and courageous space to explore warriorship.   You will leave with teachings, reflections, and the inspiration to lead brave-hearted.
We will start the day with bannock, fruit, tea & coffee and move into a beautifully prepared traditional lunch from Salishan Catering. 


8:30 AM-4:30 PM

Our time together will begin with an acknowledgment of the traditional territory, learning what it is and why it is important.
We will journey together through an overview of our shared history and explore how this continues to influence the wellness of our families, communities, and nations. We will learn about the residential schools, their legacy, and intergenerational impacts as well as the findings and Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Through dialogue, we’ll make the connection of this shared history to individuals, organizations, communities, and our Nation. With the energy and wisdom in the room, we’ll co-create a safe and brave space to have meaningful conversations that move reconciliation forward.

This engaging workshop rooted in Indigenous ways of knowing and being, remembers the importance of focusing on resiliency and hope. You will leave with teachings, reflections, inspiration to know more and do more, and ideas of how you and your organization can take part in reconciliation.
