Agenda Purpose: We will engage in a lively two days of hands on, interactive training in personal and shared leadership skills to foster inspiration, collaboration, and excellence. Specific areas of focus will include personal leadership development and courageous communication. We will be in applied leadership practice with frames and tools that shift work cultures of stress and toxic attitudes toward work cultures of well being. We will also playfully experience collaborative frames that you will leave the conference with, for working effectively as a part of any team, including employees, partners, and investors. There will be specific opportunities for solving challenges together that will also allow you to connect more deeply with the other tribal leadership participants.

Shared Leadership: The Art of Leading Together
Whole Segment Summary: We will be offering and taking two frames more deeply, with principles, tools and activities for you to practice leading collaboratively within your own organizations and across your communities and tribes. We hope these frames will be useful mindsets and heart sets for how you show up every day, continue to build a vibrant culture, conduct meetings and strengthen teamwork and trust. Get ready to play!
Part 1: Shared Leadership: How We Begin
Beginning with our stories, we will hear from each other about experiences and examples that show us the power of teams leading together in excellence.
Part 2: The Art of Hosting—Frame #2
Any space where people gather is an opportunity to practice radical hospitality. We will explore this first frame and mindset of Shared Leadership in the workplace, what the essentials of a well hosted workplace are, building a collaborative culture and being an excellent host to each other every day.
Part 3: The Ensemble—Frame #3
We will dive into practicing the essential principles and skills that have led so many great sports teams, musical and theater groups to operate at their very best. These are powerful principles to take into the workplace.
Close of Day, Back in Whole Circle
We will spend time in reflection, looking back to see and feel the heart of where we have been opened, strengthened and stirred. Where have we been inspired, challenged and surprised? Share what you are going to put into action – what are you bringing back to your workplace/teams?

Breakfast & Networking Opportunity
The Essential Relationship Tool to Building Trust within a Group – Jim Stroker
The key ingredient that often times is overlooked in leadership strategy is the time and effort to truly get to know the challenges and adversities that each team member is facing. This simple strategy universally heightens bonding and is crucial to having a team function at its highest level. Trust Circles take time and effort but in the end make all the difference. The specific skills and strategies practiced will include deep listening and authentic speaking, cultivating empathy and compassion.
Coaching Practice for Team Success and Workplace Health

- 10:20-10:30 am: Setting the Frame: Healthy Communication for Workplace Health Group culture is created by how teams speak and act together. It is essential that we have the conversations that matter most when they matter most, speaking to each other directly and in empowering ways. We will practice the specific skills for how we coach each other on what we do well, how we can improve our performance and address concerning behaviors or habits.
