Hosted by: Harriet Greenwood and Janice Milnerwood, Members of  The Inclusive Leadership Co-operative

What: Experience is the best teacher. The Inclusive Leadership Co-operative is made up of skilled and experienced Inclusive Leaders who are experts at providing experiential inclusive diversity education on line. You will find authentic, vibrant, interactive, mutual mentoring opportunities in whatever course you choose.

Cost: The Inclusive Leadership Co-operative thrives on the spirit of generosity. The Inclusive Leadership Heart to Heart Online Cafe is offered generously and freely to new and experienced Inclusive Leaders from around the world.

Let’s talk about time barriers: Only you can decide if this is the right time for you to choose the challenge of balancing one more ball along with all you are juggling in your full and busy life. If you are at work or in school you may find it helpful to talk to your boss and your teachers about how Inclusive Leadership Online offerings could be part of your professional development and continuing education.

And… if you cannot make this a priority right now – relax. Perhaps the time will be right for you to join the Inclusive Leadership Heart to Heart Online Cafe another month.

What are the outcomes of participating in Inclusive Leadership Online: 

“I have learned that being an Inclusive Leader is about being more rather than always trying to do more and accomplish more. Instead of so much doing, I am slowing down to the speed of wisdom by deepening the quality of my leadership in my circles of influence.” (Harriet Greenwood, England). 

“Everything I learn and practice within Inclusive Leadership Online, I take to my relationships with my family and to the children, youth, mentors, elders and other leaders in my community.” (Lillie Lentz, BC)

“As I become more connected with practicing Inclusive Leadership, I find that when I encounter a situation that challenges me, I have some little reminder thought-bubbles lighting up in my head such as, ‘If you were curious about this what would this look like?’ or ‘If you were accepting about this, what would this look like?’ (Sarah Mathison, Ontario)

 “The more I practice being my whole self by showing up at Inclusive Leadership Online, the more skilled I becoming at travelling from circle to circle, connecting with strangers and becoming visible to my potential allies.” (Janice Milnerwood,Quebec).

“I am amazed at how important these Inclusive Leadership Online events have become for flying through my daily life with optimism and hope. With support from my mutual mentors, I have shifted into calm, caring, creative, courage.” (Linda Hill, BC)

I look forward to our next Online Heart to Heart Cafe. No doubt, this cafe has a very strong impact on ourselves and offers more strength to all of us. (Joshua Amponsem, Ghana)
