Global Leadership Academy
Meeting the needs of our times through
Learning Community Facilitation
The programme weaves together a range of curricula to develop our awareness, proficiency and confidence in the following areas:
The programme is designed as a journey of development that responds to the ambitions, goals and longings of participants. In this way it becomes a co-designed and co-created journey for participants to develop their expertise as Learning Community Facilitators.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

The Three Learning Avenues
Learn Through Modelling and Experimenting
From the decades of experience and hard-earned wisdom of all participants, we will get the rare chance to observe in real time how decisions are made, which interventions will keep the group moving forward, and how to metabolise tension with frankness, tact and also humour. By stepping up to experiment in a safe space, we will develop the ability to balance our masculine, decisive, assertive qualities with our feminine, caring, receptive qualities.
Learn Through Communal and Private Reflection
For four hours of training sessions each month, members will gather to explore and practise the various aspects of leadership. In between sessions, there will be in-depth Reflective Journals, Learning Buddy assignments and supporting channels to integrate the new skills and perspectives.
The depth of connection to our soul and others’ on this year-long journey can be astounding. We develop keen awareness of our unconscious tendencies as we observe how others respond to the same stimulus. In a community that values the whole of who we are, we embrace our limitations and reclaim our confidence. Instead of reacting to each other’s blind spots, we use them to bring the group to ever deeper levels of trust. We bear witness to each other’s evolution, both in our roles as facilitators and in our lives.
Learn Through Collaborative Ventures
Throughout the year, the programme will support members in practising their facilitation skills both within and outside the Academy’s setting. Members are in charge of designing their ventures and calling for support from the group. The programme culminates in a Practical Project, where members will host a Learning Community of invited guests.
Through the Practical Project and any other collaborative ventures that emerge throughout the year, we learn to mobilise multiple forms of capitals to achieve common tasks. We practise hosting ourselves and co-hosting with others. We give and receive courageous feedback to move us forward on our journey.
