The Change Leader Program is a professional development course with an active network of course graduates. Participants attend a three-day institute with instruction on assessing environments and the communication and facilitation skills necessary to implement change. Following the institute, Change Leaders practice these skills by completing a certification project. These certified Change Leaders form a network of leaders that share a common language, mentor each other, and convene through leadership circles and conferences.
