Offered by Bethlehem Centre

Wed Jun 14, 2017
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Tuition $50

In this experiential, reflective workshop you’ll identify the values that are currently alive in your organization, business, professional life or personal life. Using a process that draws from Integral Theory (Ken Wilber), find out what values are already operating in the areas of self, other, action and systems. Then create a holistic values statement to acknowledge and enliven these values in your leadership and personal life.

Participants will identify the values that they live by currently using a four quadrant (integral theory) approach. This can be applied to the organizational, professional and personal level. The result is a draft values statement to go with a mission and vision statement. Participants will gain insight into their leadership emphasis and style (or that of their organization) drawing on the four quadrants.
