Lead with Intention for Nonprofit Employees and Creative Individuals

Audience: Charlotte-Mecklenburg cultural nonprofit employees and creative individuals.
Application Deadline: Monday, November 16, 2020 at noon.
Cost: No cost to participants.

As we journey through our professional lives, we travel many roads, taking many twists and turns. And yet, even as we take on new projects or work with new clients and co-workers, we often face the same challenges and experience the same frustrations again and again. These experiences are an invitation for us to be present, observe ourselves, make conscious choices and lead with intention. One of the best tools we have to lead with intention is to be present to ourselves and the world around us.

Lead with Intention© is a unique leadership development program focused on the best and brightest mid-career leaders in the cultural sector. This highly experiential program, designed and facilitated by Angelina Corbet, Founder of The Mobius Company, provides opportunities for participants to enhance their leadership style by increasing self-awareness and understanding of their leadership style through the use of the Enneagram, a tool for personal transformation with practical everyday application. Participants will become more effective in their decision-making and problem-solving processes, communication styles and approach to collaboration. This is the only program in the region specializing in the use of the Enneagram as a tool for self-awareness to enhance leadership style.

To learn more about the Enneagram and Lead with Intention©, register for the virtual Introduction to the Enneagram session taking place October 15, 2020. Details below under “ASC Workshops and Trainings.”

Presenter: Angelina Corbet, The Mobius Company.

What Past Participants Say About the Program

“Lead with Intention emphasized celebration of our positive personality traits as well as honest reflection of our more negative habits and how to overcome them to be the best we can for our teams, families and communities. We dove into “what makes us tick” to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves as well as the varied backgrounds, hardwirings and aspirations of our colleagues in the workplace. Angelina is a brilliant guide and mentor in the history and application of the Enneagram. I consider this series to have been invaluable to the development of my professional leadership skills.”

SELF to SYSTEMS Race Equity Workshop

Dates: Friday, January 22, Friday, February 5 and Friday, February 19, 2021, 9 a.m. – noon.
Location: Online.
Registration Deadline: Monday, January 11, 2021.
Cost: $45.
Audience: Cultural nonprofits and creative individuals.

Facilitated by Jasmine Hines of The Inspower Agency and Patrice Funderburg of Educate 2 Engage.

The purpose of this series is to build capacity for learning about race equity within the context of arts and culture. Bringing awareness to structural racism, our patterns, ways of being, and language, we will inquire how our biases affect how we listen and how we communicate with others. When we are self-aware and have tools to communicate through difficult conversations, we can teach and lead more effectively. The awareness of one’s pattern and way of being along with a brave space for learning promotes positive paradigm and behavioral shifts. This series will only serve to scratch the surface of awareness and to provide participants with a framework to dialogue with increased confidence about race, racism and white supremacy.

This workshop is a three-part series. In order to register, participants must commit to attending all three workshop dates.
