You as a Global Leader (YAGL) is a workshop where people engage in lively conversations and exercises. It is designed to create a journey into BECOMING a generative leader and creating a future for yourself and your community beyond the expected. The course is based on the well-researched Appreciative Inquiry model.
In three to four, days participants discover, dream, and design new paths to personal transformation and the fulfillment of an impactful project.
This course explores shifting perspectives and, therefore, influence to becoming more global. Being global is about shifting a myopic focus on an issue as strictly local to a community and viewing it as part of a world issue. Participants are challenged to take on global thought leadership.
Being global encourages participants to play a bigger game. By articulating life’s values and purpose and designing a future path to higher levels of leadership impact, YAGL deepens the sense of who one is becoming as a leader.
Ten coaching sessions, extending over several months, guide the participants to embody new behaviors and achieve results beyond expectations.
