World-Changing Women's Summit 2020

What to Expect at the Summit

“This is more than a gathering of women. This is reconnecting with your tribe, or finding it for the first time. The energy, the inspiration and the connection available to us with this space is beyond what you could ever hope for from a traditional conference.”

We’re curating a powerhouse group of female leaders to share wisdom, find inspiration, and connect around best practices for leading and thriving in the conscious business world.

The best and brightest will gather for three days to dive deep and have raw conversations about critical topics such as:

  • Developing yourself as an authentic, conscious leader in the workplace
  • Bringing more purpose into the workplace
  • Working more effectively across generations
  • Developing a more inclusive workplace culture
  • Best practices for raising capital
  • Managing the stress of work-life integration
  • Scaling your company while staying true to your values
  • Creating greater impact in the world

Rockwood Leadership Institute Training

TAKE A BREATH

Let go of whatever you’re holding on to… for the next few minutes, at least. Give yourself a moment to slow down, breathe, and take a break while you explore what joyous and effective leadership can do for you.

Each section of the training focuses on one of Rockwood’s 6 core practices. Through guided meditation, small group exercises, games, and deep reflection, you’ll be introduced to each, and learn ways to bring them into to your daily life:

  • Purpose
  • Vision
  • Partnership
  • Resilience
  • Performance
  • Personal Ecology

The word leader is traditionally associated with executives and manager, but at Rockwood, everyone is a leader. The ability to inspire and align others is essential in every role, and at every level.

That’s why our trainings are open to anyone who’s interested in deepening and strengthening their leadership skills. The only pre-requisites are a willingness to step out of your comfort zone, to give and receive feedback on their strengths and blind spots, and to learn with and from others.

The Art of Leadership is more like a retreat than a training. It unfolds over 5 days in a beautiful, natural setting, with all meals and snacks taken care of so you can focus completely on yourself and your leadership.

Since 2000, Rockwood Leadership Institute has provided thousands of social change leaders across the globe with tools and skills to help change themselves, their communities, and the world.
