WHY THIS PROGRAM NOW:
the complex times we live in call us to step up and out, to bring about changes with greater skill and greater heart, to expand our presence and purpose - for ourselves, with others, in and on behalf of the systems we are a part of.
leading change takes specialized knowledge and support:
often we try to bring about a change and when it gets difficult or we don't see the results we had hoped for, we abandon our intention or find someone or something to blame.
Leading change takes specialized knowledge that isn't taught in most leadership programs. It also takes focus, practice, patience, and personal resilience, along with a supportive peer network that holds you accountable, ENCOURAGES YOU AND CHALLENGES YOU with care.
The Agents of Change program is designed and led by systemic change and women's leadership expert, Dorian-Patrizia Baroni (www.dorianbaroni.com), with input by over 40 women change agents from around the world, and relies on the latest academic and practitioner knowledge on leading change.

Some examples: new change learning programs of their own design, made changes to the way they lead in large organizations, gained greater confidence in their own purpose and presence, started up new social impact ventures, published articles and opinion blogs, started on a healthier lifestyle path, finally made long dreamed-of career transitions, weathered health crises with resilience thanks to a network of support.
