Uncertain and turbulent times call for ethical and resilient civic leadership.
In this 10 week interactive program, learn to cultivate the values and leadership skills required to increase personal, social and environmental well-being.
By covering a range of skills from self-regulation, relating to others ethically and with compassion to engaging with complex systems, this training builds towards compassionate integrity: the ability to lead in accordance with one's values with a recognition of our common humanity, fostering trust and social cohesion―the key to resilient workplaces and communities.
Compassionate Integrity Training® is based on cutting-edge developments in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, trauma-informed care, peace and conflict studies, and contemplative science. It builds off of work done by Daniel Goleman (author of the book Emotional Intelligence) and Peter Senge, initiatives in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), and other areas. Its development has been aided by the collaborative work of a team of experts with both academic and applied backgrounds.
Graduates of this online program will receive a certificate from Life University's Center for Compassion, Integrity & Secular Ethics based in Georgia, USA. Participants must attend a minimum of 8 of the 10 online sessions to receive their certificate.
Participants include diverse civic and community leaders, from Mayors, Councillors, Board members and senior municipal staff to culture/well-being organizational representatives, non-profit directors and community builders.
The time commitment for this course is 2 hours via Zoom each week for the 10 weekly sessions (20 hour total). While there is no formal homework, participants are asked to spend time in between sessions reflecting, journaling & engaging in personal practice of the skills learned.
