Courage to Lead Program

is a unique twelve week Leadership program based on a book entitled ‘The Courage to Lead …Transform Self, Transform Society’. The book and study program is the outcome of a team effort by The Canadian Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA). It is based on the concept that ‘in order to transform society, we first need to transform ourselves’.

This non-traditional leadership program has an emphasis on personal growth and reflection and will be of interest to anyone seeking to develop themselves as leaders in all walks of life. It is about the foundational context for leadership. The study is not about leadership skills development. This course will be useful to professionals: coaches, nurses, doctors, researchers, business people, activists, union leaders, cleaners, employed and unemployed, people in transition, people who thought they had life all sewed up and still open to learning, youth, elders, executive directors, health workers, teachers, mothers, fathers, politicians, artists, social entrepreneurs, community development practitioners and social change agents.

This program explores twelve leadership stances, any one of which, if adopted, has the potential to change your life and community. The message is simple: if you relate authentically to life, to yourself, to society, and to the world, you can start the process of social change from where you are right now and be a leader as well.
