Do power differently and become a more effective and caring leader in this guided online course hosted by the Omega Women's Leadership Center (OWLC).

Sharon Salzberg says the challenge of our time is to dismantle cultural conditioning to understand that we can lead with kindness as a fuel for effective action in the world.

Whether guiding a family, working in an organization, running a business, or holding public office, leadership involves deciding what matters most. Today, the old "command and control" leadership model is giving way to "connect and collaborate," and women are playing a central role in this important shift.

In this 5-week guided online course, you'll build skills in five leadership essentials—values, voice, vessel, vision, and voyage, including revitalizing self-care practices. Our seasoned team of faculty will guide you in a holistic exploration of leadership and power and lead you through a curriculum designed to help you #DoPowerDifferently at the personal, relational, and global level. Because we value a collective approach, this will take place in an intergenerational, cross-sector, multiracial circle of women.

This leadership immersion is for all who identify as women and want to become more effective and impactful leaders contributing to a caring, just, and sustainable future for everybody. Nine modules (two released per week) will invite you on a discovery of your leadership through dynamic content and activities including reflection, writing, movement, and meditation. Every Friday, you’ll meet with designated course faculty for a 90-minute live session to learn more and explore these complex topics in community through interactive exercises and discussion. There will also be opportunities for peer exchange, support, and wisdom.

This guided course includes two modules per week (generally Saturday-Monday and Tuesday-Friday) and four weekly live sessions with faculty. You will be working on your own and with other participants.

Whether you are a seasoned leader or beginning your leadership journey, this course can help you be the courageous, wise, and nurturing leader the world needs today.

For registered participants, this class will be available on demand through July 12.
