Transformative Practices for Education Professionals

Creating transformative outcomes — from the classroom to the boardroom — begins with self-transformation. We can only lead others authentically where we are courageous enough to travel ourselves. As a SPIRITWORKS participant, expect to develop your innate capacity for inspiration, empowerment and mastery, thereby becoming more fulfilled in your work…and in your life.
