A Leadership Learning Advice Column

Do you remember all those amazingly smart people you spent three days with on Bowen Island? They are amazing resources that continue to be available to you! (And you are an amazing resource available to them!)

To help you share your expertise with each other, we’re launching a community-supported Leadership Advice Column. Each newsletter will share real-life (anonymous) questions, concerns, and quandaries from graduates, and will include a link to a form where other graduates can offer feedback, advice and suggestions.

Tap into the knowledge of others

We’re revamping the Leadership 2020 newsletters and adding an advice column supported by the vast community of practice that is all you Leadership 2020 participants!

If you want to get some advice or ask for an outside opinion, let us know using this form.

We will share one question in each upcoming issue of the Leadership 2020 newsletter along with a call for responses, feedback, and ideas. A group of past participants will read the responses and pick the most applicable and helpful pieces of advice which will be shared in the following newsletter issue (along with a brand new question).

Practical advice for your practice
