As we’ve done for the last several years, Rockwood is closing our offices from December 23 to Jan 3 so we’ll be able to enter into 2022 with renewed spirit and energy.
Before we take some much-needed time for rest, renewal, and joy, we are very excited to share that we will be offering an in-person Art of Leadership for Philanthropic Leaders training in 2022!
The Art of Leadership for Philanthropic Leaders will support you with space to reflect on where you want to go next. What personal transformation do you want to bring into the field of philanthropy? Into your communities? Where do you want to delve deeper and where do you want to rest?
You’ll explore those questions while you engage with Rockwood’s six core practices—Purpose, Vision, Performance, Resilience, Partnership, and Personal Ecology—all within a community of a community of leaders like you working specifically in the foundation and philanthropic world.
As we continue to navigate the global pandemic, we are monitoring local and federal COVID-19 safety guidance and have developed protocols to ensure everyone’s safety during in-person trainings. If you need more information about our COVID-19 protocols, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of us here at Rockwood wish you a joyful, leaderful, and transformative New Year. See you in 2022!
