Leadership Course


This yearlong course teaches the universal principles of leadership that have practical application in every leadership situation. The course addresses the key factors to successful coaching, counseling and teaching. It brings a deeper understanding of executive leadership and the day-to-day management of people in a business or nonprofit context. And it empowers a person to be of service to others in less formal relationships with families and among friends.

If you are currently offering leadership—either at an individual or an organizational level—the course will assist you to find new strategies for guiding people to move past their own limitations. And it will assist you to become aware of your own blind spots as a leader and to gain new insights and perspective.

If you are moving into leadership, and you aspire to be the most enlightened leader you can be, this course will help you move toward your goal.

The essential premise of the course is that within all people, and within all groups of people, there is a spiritual reality that is seeking to manifest. There is a self whose fundamental nature is divine, and that self deeply desires to express fully through the human capacity. When this perspective is held by a leader, they are uniquely empowered to help people face their challenges and meet their goals. They bring uncommon wisdom and understanding to the issues that people face, and new insight into the deepest issues of the heart. They become enlightened teachers of emotional intelligence. A leader with this perspective is in position to guide a person, or a group of people, to their ultimate fulfillment.

This Leadership Course is an in-depth exploration of seven stages of the creative process that people and groups undergo on the path to success and fulfillment. Participants learn to identify those stages and learn powerful tools to move people successfully through them.

The course develops practical leadership skills in the following areas:

  • Coaching
  • Speaking
  • Facilitation
  • Teaching
  • Writing
  • Organizational leadership

Course Format

  • Three face-to-face sessions of 4½ days each at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado USA
  • Bi-weekly webinars
  • Bi-weekly small-group sessions
  • Faculty and peer coaching
  • Assignments that give participants the opportunity to practice what they are learning
  • A program of personal practice, developed by the participant

The first face-to-face session will be at the beginning of the course, the second halfway through, and the final face-to-face session at the end of the course.

From Participants

I was using a hit-or-miss form of service…. I was frustrated…and was actually turning down opportunities to serve. This program offered me a way to be of greatest use to my field of service in a conscious and deliberate fashion. I am gaining confidence and seeing real results in my application of principles that I learned in this program.

I came into this program knowing a strong sense of my leadership responsibility and destiny. However, I was still plagued with a tendency towards reluctant leadership. The material offered through this course insured I could and would successfully address my limitations. People in my life have noticed that there is a leader in their midst as a direct result of this enlightened and effective program.

The Leadership Program has been jet fuel for my rocket ship to successful leadership. I received many tools for understanding others and myself. I have a new sense of maturity and can help others discover mastery for themselves. I have new confidence in public speaking, coaching and leading groups of people.

I provide leadership in a number of ways but have often felt unable to lead effectively. This leadership training program has given me tools and confidence to lead with more power, understanding and compassion.
