2011 Institute


The first session of the 2011 Institute was held at the BMO Institute for Learning in Toronto. 102 participants from several provinces were actively involved together from Tuesday morning to Friday afternoon. Several highlights included a Wednesday session with award-winning author and leadership researcher Barry Posner who generously provided a signed copy of the 4th Edition The Leadership Challenge to each participant. On Thursday morning, individual groups inspired us with their visions of a culture of excellence. Thursday evening Jacoba Lillius encouraged us with her work in the Compassion Lab at Queen’s University then everyone participated in a rousing karaoke and dance party that was one of the best. Friday morning Rick Lash joined us again for his wonderful session on Emotional Intelligence and the Leader’s Journey. We meet again in November.
