The group is a great platform for exploring leadership, professional & personal goals, and growing a network in a truly engaging, meaningful way. It’s introduced me to six bad ass ladies who I might not otherwise meet, get their feedback on challenges and opportunities that I am facing, sharing set backs and victories as a group. It’s been incredibly powerful and inspiring for me.

Leadership Circles
In Alpinista's Leadership Circles, participants explore the notion of leadership as personal and professional practice. Practice wisdom builds with experience, critical reflection, mutual engagement, and action. Designed to invite self discovery in a group, these small, intimate circles provide space for individuals to deepen their ability to effectively lead using approaches and methods that emphasize collective leadership. Learning is experiential and reflective. As with most Alpinista offerings, Liberating Structures and other participatory methods are integrated as tools.

Circles are developed iteratively, with responsibility shared among group members. Practices include:

  • Peer Consultation
  • Retreat-style Immersion
  • Practice with Distributive Leadership Methods
  • Reflection on Field Experience
  • Readings & Discussion

Individual Leadership Coaching
Alpinista provides individual coaching with leaders that occupy both formal and informal leadership roles within the organizations where they work and communities where they contribute. The approach is reflective in nature, discovery and action-oriented, and based on the strengths and interests of the individual.
