TRAINING - Creative Mentoring

An intensive workshop with author and mythologist Michael Meade. This Creative Mentoring workshop offers orientation and training in the core ideas and purposes of mentoring.

While mentoring naturally involves youth, it also helps to re-imagine meaningful roles for elders. The role of the mentor can be seen as a bridge which helps youth find their way into life, while also preparing the older generations to act as elders in the community. Mentoring also involves rites of passage and other traditional practices that help people survive crises and enter new stages of life.

TRAINING - How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

Why is it so hard to make lasting changes in our organizations, in our communities, and in our own lives? The primary obstacle is a conflict that's built into our brains, says Dan Heath, the co-author of the new book, Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard.
