Global Leadership Profile – Aprendizaje Vertical

For the second time in Spain a 3 day workshop for business leaders, consultants, coaches, researchers, and sustainability practitioners who wish to further their personal development and learn about the power and practice of Collaborative Developmental Action Inquiry – the only approach statistically confirmed as reliably generating both personal and organizational transformation.

All workshop participants take the Global Leadership Profile (GLP) and receive feedback on their center-of-gravity, emergent, and fallback leadership action-logics. Those who wish can become authorized to use and debrief the GLP with their clients.

Offered by Elaine Herdman-Barker and Verónica Menduiña, Action Inquiry is the only program that comprehensively blends the what, why and how of transformational leadership development, including:

  1. the theory of Collaborative Developmental Action Inquiry (CDAI)
  2.  the assessment of leaders’ predominant action-logics (either using the GLP or in-action diagnoses), and
  3. the ongoing practice of Action Inquiry at the personal, team, and organizational scales

The workshop experience

At our workshops you will never be passively hearing somebody telling you how to do it right. Rather, you will be exercising active listening and leadership, moving among peers in a community of inquiry, receiving direct feedback about your leadership impact, thereby learning together practical ways to help yourself and others:

  • Assess current leadership actions-logics – the center-of-gravity, emergent and fallback perspective that guide action and influence results
  • Become conscious of and shift action/ mental/ emotional habits that are limiting effectiveness
  • Exercise personal power with greater flexibility and mutuality to generate personal and organizational transformation
  • Develop collaborative practices that increase mindful, relational, and cultural intelligence in the wider organization
  • Build capacity to lead from the inside out, confidently responding to the deepest calls of our human nature and other natural world that hold us
