The Omega Women's Leadership Intensive

Become the Kind of Leader the World Needs Now

Oct 20 - Oct 25 2019 Rhinebeck, NY

We are no longer taking applications for this program.

Learn how you can use your leadership to create a caring, just, and sustainable future for everybody.

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.

This highly experiential workshop is for women who want to use their leadership to create a caring, just, and sustainable future for everybody. Through reflection, dialogue, writing, movement, meditation, and contact with nature, we delve deep into our leadership stories and engage in transformative exercises that awaken us to do power differently. We examine current and historic systems of power, privilege, and domination, how they intersect, and learn what we can do to advance change and shape a new narrative.

Guided by expert teachers, we explore four leadership essentials—values, voice, vision, and voyage—in an intimate setting.

Together we:

  • Articulate our core values to create a culture of care
  • Strengthen our capacity to communicate with impact
  • Create a compelling and actionable vision
  • Engage in a deep exploration of self to become a more authentic leader
  • Incorporate self-care practices, intersectionality, and empathy into our work
  • Sketch a year’s leadership plan to advance our vision for change when we return home

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

Applications: We are no longer accepting applications at this time.
