Workshops and Training

Authentic Leadership Center’s flagship training is a two-session, 8-day supportive and transformative journey to nudge you back to the center of yourself – where true leadership begins. A leader is often charismatic or inspiring because they’ve mined the wealth of their own potential, and have learned to lead their life from the greatness within. ALC’s team of facilitators and coaches can help you do that.

This advanced experiential workshop is for graduates of Leading from the Center or similar training. While similar to the Leading from the Center 5-Day session, this training provides an intensive opportunity for experienced participants to actively define the work they wish to do and how they will do it. The workshop takes place in a relaxed, community-style atmosphere.

The Authentic Leadership Center is dedicated to helping individuals, teams, and organizations realize all of their potentials. The ALC Team has many years of experience in producing outstanding results for leaders and their teams.
