Rockwood Art of Leadership March 17-21, 2013 Cohort

At the end of every Rockwood training, we send out post-training evaluations to our participants to learn about their experience and collect their feedback. We are consistently inspired by what people share. Below are two testimonials taken from the post-training evaluations from folks who attended the recent Art of Leadership March 17-21, 2013. We are offering this post as a reminder to take a breath, reflect, and remember the impact each of us can make.

The Rockwood Art of Leadership has provided me with an evolved state of mind, more grounded in my vision and purpose, more clarity in the power and purpose of power in leadership, and useable tools to improve the effectiveness of my leadership. I also left with a renewed appreciation for cross-sector social justice and labor movements, and a stronger belief in interconnected movements in creating a more compassionate world where violence, injustice, and inequity no longer exist.

Kelly Miller, Executive Director, Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence

As a social justice educator, I have always preached, “each one teach one,” and strongly believed in the power of each student’s voice and story.  The Rockwood training gave me a chance to step out of a facilitator role and find the power in my own voice and story.

    What a beautiful group of people! And the beauty begins with the commitments of their heart! Participants of the Rockwood AoL (Art of Leadership) March 2013 Council, I have a question for you. How have you sought to apply the practice of co-powerment at work or home? What are you learning??? If you need a reconnection to the co-powerment principle check out the Rockwood Blog. Hope to hear from you. best wishes!
