Revolutionize your work
Build leadership capacity and learn through practice with your cohort of peers
The practical self management intensive is a 5-week immersive online course that will transform your workplace, and yourself.
The future of work is here, and it demands that we re-examine our assumptions about power, hierarchy and leadership.
To change work cultures, we need to develop new leadership skills — and learn how to develop those capacities in everyone we work with. We need to un-learn those practices that no longer serve, and step up into a whole new level of potential. Self-management is a never-ending process of learning — about the broader functions of an organization, our own capacity and confidence to step into roles and collaboration and trust.
This 5-week immersive online course is based on learning by doing in a cohort of peers. With an intentional mix of theory, inspiration, project work, publishing and self-organizing, you will Work Out Loud and learn from your coaches and your peers.
You will learn
- How to create agreements and commitments
- How to organise yourself and your company differently
- How to blend your personal and professional development journey
- An understanding of what it means to be self-managed, Teal, Deliberately Developmental, and to bring your whole self to work
Each week, we’ll dive into different topics that will lay the foundation for your self-management development.
The course also features guest appearances from thought leaders in the field, giving you the opportunity to ask them questions and learn from their experience. Previous special guests have included inspiring practitioners like Doug Kirkpatrick (cofounder of the Morning Star Self-Management Institute), Helen Sanderson (founder of Wellbeing Teams), Joshua Vial (founder of Enspiral) and Samantha Slade (author of Going Horizontal).
You will walk away with
- Learn how to do and be the Future of Work
- Get proficient at delivering prototypes and collaborating
- Practice with supportive coaches and peers
- 5 weeks of learning in a cohort of peers
- Time investment of 6 to 4 hours per week
- Weekly online video meetings, on Mondays (2hrs) and Fridays (1hr)
