Practical Self-Management Intensive

Revolutionize your work

Transform your workplace and yourself in this 5-week immersive online course.

The future of work is here, and it demands that we re-examine our assumptions about power, hierarchy and leadership

To change work cultures, we need to develop new leadership skills — and learn how to develop those capacities in everyone we work with. We need to un-learn those practices that no longer serve, and step up into a whole new level of potential. Self-management is a never-ending process of learning — about the broader functions of an organization, our own capacity and confidence to step into roles and collaboration and trust.

This 5-week immersive online course is based on learning-by-doing in a cohort of peers. With an intentional mix of theory, inspiration, project work, publishing and self-organizing, you will learn from your coaches and peers and share your insights with the world.

5 weeks full of insights, thoughtful, kind people, creativity and playfulness! I loved everything about this learning journey. Lisa and Elena did a great job in creating a safe and dynamic space for all of us to challenge ourselves and explore self-management and its core elements starting with our own patterns and mindset. - Catalina Contoloru

Each week we addressed one topic of self-management - a principle and its tools for practice.The collective lessons after five weeks is an acquired mindset, a worldview of future work possible for the next generation. - May Yong
