Stepping Stones for Transformational Leadership
The Stepping Stones project seeks to empower leaders to experience healing as an asset and discover the impact it might have within themselves, their communities and greater society. The project introduces resilience skills and processes to enable leaders to mobilise their communities with innovative, appealing and challenge based measures to foster wellbeing and healing both on individual and the collective levels. The project is based on a holistic learning model that combines neuro-linquistic learning progression impact on change with embodiment practices, peer-based and individual coaching, and cohort experiences to elevate collective awareness in all three human dimensions - the intellectual, physical and incorporeal (which some define as spiritual or missional).
We aim to equip leaders with limited healing and wellbeing experience with knowledge, techniques and competences to examine patterns, both immediate and historical, that are impacting the connectedness and wellbeing in their cultures and communities.
The overall aim of Stepping Stones incorporates four key dimensions:
* Individual Healing & Wellbeing: Raising awareness of leaders about healing and wellbeing practices and support the development of their idiosyncratic methodology to address key issues.
* Collective Healing & Wellbeing: Develop competences of leaders with a focus to shift paradigms and practices around healing, belonging, social justice, systemic and cultural oppression and collaboration.
* Activation: Empower leaders to use created tools in their environments and a collective project, serving as a model to others.
* Advocacy: Equip leaders who enable a change of mind set in their community towards the impact of oppression and healing; encourage more fulfilled and just living; influence policies that uphold holistic prevention, identification, resolution and contribution towards more aware and equitable practices within their immediate communities, their spheres of influence and society at large.
