Resonant Leadership: Purpose, Passion, and Power: Creating Resonance in Your Life as a Leader
June 19-23, 2017

The world is changing, building and sustaining positive relationships is more important than ever. In this workshop, renowned scholar, executive coach and CEO of Teleos Leadership Institute, Frances Johnston, PhD will guide you on a journey of discovery of self-awareness, resonant relationships, and leading change in our chaotic and often stressful world. Through exciting and meaningful activities, Fran will support your learning and exploring of personal values and beliefs and delving deeply into what matters most to you–your noble purpose and impact on the people you care about.

Through reflection and dialogues you will come to better understand the meaning of positive relationships and how they exist in all that we do in our personal life and work life. Relationships live and breathe in our existence and through positive relationships we are able to become better leaders for teams, organization and ourselves.

You will also explore the power that each one of us has at our fingertips, if only we explore and learn to really use our strengths, talents and gifts. You will learn how to rely on your emotional intelligence to guide you through the labyrinth that is life today, and how to create resonant relationships even in the midst of pressure and conflict. The workshop will help you to renew yourself, while connecting deeply with like–minded and wonderful people who are inspired to have a positive impact on the future of our world.

Together we will collectively learn to become resonant leaders and create a community to inspire others to do the same. From our experience we can learn and create the knowledge and positive energy that the world needs now. Each one of us, in our own way, can then go make the world a better place.

This workshop is designed for consultants, coaches, therapists and adult learners–talented people who have a wealth of experiences, insights about leadership, and ideas about how to build resonance relationships in their communities, organizations, and families. Sessions will include reflection, assessments, group dialogues, and short discussions on research in leadership, neuroscience, psychology, emotional intelligence, and organizational culture. The entire workshop will be highly interactive and participant–centered. Fran will work with each person and the group as a whole to create a powerful learning community that focuses on everyone's growth and development as a community and individually.
