5-Week "Personal/Professional Development" Webinar Series

(webinar series has been condensed to allow all the information and materials to be presented prior to the beginning of the holiday season)


All of our stories are being challenged these days—stories about the economy, education, politics, the family, the future, the environment, and on and on. Something new is emerging – a community of people seeking a better future and we all have the opportunity to be part of what emerges.  Practicing AI means expanding positive possibilities and opportunities, listening and learning, and connecting more deeply with others as we work together to create a sustainable future for everyone.  This webinar series provides you with opportunities to deepen and broaden your capacity for reflective practice, collaboration and co-creation.  This means increasing self- and other-awareness, expanding positive interpersonal skills, and practicing the art of open mind, heart and will. These are the exact skills necessary to be successful in a learning organization; they are the exact practices needed to create more joy in your life!

 This is a 5-week personal/professional development series and includes:

  • Initial 2-hour webinar;
  • Followed by 4 weekly 90 minute webinar sessions;
  • One-on-one coaching sessions (excluding the first week) with Dr. Cheri Torres. Over the 5 week series, you will have a total 2 hours of personalized coaching (One-on-one coaching sessions to be scheduled after the webinar series begins). The coaching alone has a retail value of $250.00/hour - that is $500.00 of personalized coaching - all of which is included in the price of this webinar! 
  • Journal assignments, reading to help solidify the learning.

Designed For:

Members of organizations, especially managers and supervisors. Intact teams, departments, and community groups taking this series together will expand their capacity for collaboration, innovation, and excellence.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand and engage in practices that build META capacity (multiple ways of knowing, engagement and accountability, thinking together and acting collaboratively)
  • Increase self-reflection, learning and ability to engage in reflective practice
  • Increase interpersonal skills
  • Expand capacity for an open mind and heart
  • Improve learning and decision-making skills
