17-22 March, 2005; Crestone, Colorado
The Crestone Institute invites you to join us for our 2005 seminar exploring the interface between leadership, creativity, and culture.
The seminar engages those ready to closely examine the directions and commitments they are making in their own development as they live and work across cultures. It positions leadership as a personal practice of heart and mind, one that cultivates an experience of internal spaciousness and that allows the full measure of our living wisdom to be offered to each unique situation. Our focus overall is on bringing forth the creative synergy inherent when we engage the new and unfamiliar--whether that be represented in a person or a project or a place. The seminar serves those who are themselves living and working across cultures, as well as those whose responsibilities include guiding others towards maximal effectiveness in a multicultural context.
Past seminar participants have brought a rich variation in experience. Their nationalities have included British, Canadian, German, Icelandic, Japanese, Pakistani, Swiss, and U.S. American of diverse ethnicities. Their areas of professional focus have ranged from multinational and global corporations to social service provision and administration, from higher education to home maintenance, from international development to building global leadership capacity.
The March 2005 seminar is inspired by the belief that each of us has the capacity to remain open and inspired in the face of cultural difference. It will afford you the opportunity to consider current and innovative thinking about leadership, ‘The Leadership Spiral,’ and the full spectrum of choices one can draw upon when living and leading among cultures. You will become familiar with the two principles and six practices that comprise the Personal Leadership framework, and closely examine them as doorways into the creative synergy our commitments require. Finally, you will have multiple occasions to rigorously apply Personal Leadership to your own specific situations through the powerful methodology of ‘The Critical Moment Dialogue.’ Cultivating such a Dialogue with our highest truth can clearly guide us in transforming cultural differences from walls that separate into bridges that connect.
The seminar will be designed to focus on our individual interests and engage our collective creativity. Our days will include content-focused discussions and integrative conversations as well as opportunities for quiet reflection.
