Consulting, Coaching, and Facilitating Community Change Projects
The Center for Ethical Leadership helps you make change that matters.
Coaching collective leadership and change projects. We help individuals, groups, coalitions, and organizations form their collective leadership and implement change initiatives.
Creating Courageous Collaboration with Gracious Space. We help people create Gracious Space in their work so they can take risks, open people up to collective creativity, and foster courageous collaboration in diverse groups
Putting Values into Action. We help people claim their core values and put them into action. For organizations, this typically involves three conversations to make explicit: the values individuals bring to work; the shared values of the group; and the values that define the organizations relationship to the common good.
Designing Convenings and Other Facilitation. We offer unique models and approaches to groups, organizations, coalitions and communities wanting to foster authentic dialogue, form lasting relationships, break down barriers that have kept people from working together, and learn from each other. This includes multi-sector convenings, community dialogues, and organizational discussions and planning.
Serving as an Intermediary. We have a strong track record of partnering with foundations, public agencies, and communities in local, regional and national initiatives.
