The Authentic Leadership in Action (ALIA) Institute supports thought leadership for sustainability through a variety of programs.
Something is on the move. In our organizations, our communities, in our minds and hearts, we know that it is time to find a different way. The future is calling for it. And we see glimpses of it all around us — even in the midst of turmoil, retrenchment, and uncertainty. Collectively we are at a crossroads, and much is at stake. As leaders, how do we rise to this challenge? What simple but powerful approaches and practices will not only sustain us, but move our leadership to the next level? How do we release the capacity for innovation and resilience within and across our organizations and communities? Welcome to ALIA Europe, a six-day immersion in the fresh ideas, paradigm-shifting tools, and strategic conversations you need to guide your team, organization, or community through complex change. Spend 15 hours in a skill-building track facilitated by such thought-and-action leaders as Margaret Wheatley, David Rooke, and Lasse Wrennmark.
The ALIA Institute began as the week-long Shambhala Summer Institute, which has convened annually in Halifax, Nova Scotia, since 2001. Early thinking partners and faculty included Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline and The Next Revolution; Margaret Wheatley, author of Leadership and the New Science; Juanita Brown, co-founder of The World Café movement; and Art Kleiner, editor-in-chief of strategy + business magazine.
