Understand our course goals and specify your own. Then, look back at critical episodes in your life history and describe someone you admire to start the next phase of your growth as a leader.

Learn how to explain what matters most to you and how to produce a leadership vision statement that vividly illustrates the future you want to create.

Diagnose the fit between what matters to you in the different parts of your life as a leader and where both your mind and your heart are actually focused.

Explore what it means to be whole as a leader in all the different parts of life by identifying the key stakeholders in each domain, why they matter to you, and what you need from each other.

Prepare for and then conduct dialogues with two or three stakeholders at work, at home, and in the community to both build trust and gain support for your leadership vision.

Design a game plan and scorecard for an experiment intended to produce a four-way win — demonstrable gains for your work, your home, your community, and your private self.

Learn how to create meaningful change that lasts by overcoming resistance and getting people on your side as you strive to make things better for them, and for you.

Reflect on lessons you have learned about what it takes to grow as a leader in all parts of your life, for the rest of your life.
