“The overall experience of the workshop, interactions with David and Gisela and the other participants, and the opportunity to reflect and readjust was truly transformative for me. I expected a masterfully facilitated workshop and I got it. This has allowed me to ‘let go’ and simultaneously bring greater leadership into my current responsibilities and better focus on working toward new opportunities.”

This is a highly participatory course for organizational leaders, process leaders and facilitators who want to connect with their own leadership vision and deeply rethink what it means to be a leader during times of ambiguity and volatile change. 

Grove Founder, David Sibbet and Gisela Wendling, Ph.D, introduce an archetypal change model and explore how opening to uncertainty and cultivating empathy for yourself and the people you serve can transform your responses to change. The laboratory environment also provides opportunities for you to learn how to creatively frame the change challenges you face, pivot to being a learning leader and hold a visionary direction while being open to co-creation and emergent solutions.
