Join Rockwood's Network of over 4,000 social change leaders across the country by participating in the Art of Leadership!

Art of Leadership is:

  • A five-day intensive residential retreat that teaches powerful visioning, listening, speaking, presentation, team-building and feedback skills to emerging and established social change leaders.
  • Taught in an intimate learning community limited to 24-30 emerging and longtime leaders who are working across a wide range of issues (e.g. climate change, human and civil rights, arts and cultural work).
  • Led by nationally recognized thinkers, educators and activists who are experts at sharing in-depth insights and innovative leadership practices.
  • All retreats are held in beautiful retreat settings in California and on the East Coast.

After the Art of Leadership Training, you can expect to:

  • Articulate an inspiring and clear vision for your work
  • Deal more effectively with organizational and leadership challenges
  • Skillfully manage relationships to increase personal and organizational effectiveness
  • Build strong partnerships inside and outside your organization and community

The Training Curriculum includes:

  • Inner Reflection - Many social change leaders are so focused on their organizations that they do not have space to reflect on their own needs as a leader. Art of Leadership offers leaders time and reflective space to examine their strengths and challenges.
  • Practical Tools - Over the course of five days, leaders engage in hands-on practice in planning, public speaking, stress-management practices and courageous conversations. Leaders receive a personalized 360 degree leadership assessment to help set leadership performance goals.
  • Powerful Community - Each training convenes 24-30 leaders working in different organizations and issue areas. Art of Leadership fosters learning partnerships through pair and small group work, and post-retreat peer support.
