Foundations of Purpose
We each carry a singular and precious gift for the world, but too often it is hidden away, even from ourselves. Let that gift re-animate your life and work with provocation and guidance from master educators, artists, and fellow travellers.
Reconciliation and Right Relations
This program will create an understanding of the truth of our shared Canadian history, inspire participants to learn more about Indigenous ways of knowing, and move participants individually and organizationally into the act of reconciliation.
This new program enables leaders to excel as they work to strengthen Canada’s creative and cultural sectors. The program will develop skills, networks, and contextual understanding of leadership in these sectors.
Creativity and the Craft of Leadership
Leadership is about taking initiative, which is—in every sense—a creative act. To excel at any creative act, you must work to master your craft. This program presents practices that support participants to improve their leadership craft through the release of their own creativity. The program enables leaders to anticipate, prepare for, and navigate our complex world.
