Dear Corridor Leader,
In recent conversations with many of you, we’ve heard it said that a healthy, strong, and growing community is built on authentic relationships and meaningful social networks that can help accelerate the creation of sustainable communities. You’ve also noted that building a community like this requires some serious interior work to discern our authentic selves and then to align ourselves with others in order to face the adaptive challenges and opportunities ahead of us as a region. As one Corridor Leader quipped, “Unfortunately…there’s no app for that! We actually need to do some face-to-face work with each other.” That opportunity now awaits you!
In every community, organization and profession, there are leaders like you whose contributions are absolutely essential in our collective work for a better world. You – and all the others — are pioneering social innovations and inspiring us to reshape the moral purposes of the institutions through which we all live so we are ready for the emerging future.
Imagine what it would be like to enable more leaders at every level to discover and unleash their own deepest desires and power to make our world a better place. Imagine a leadership experience in which the self-discovery and actualization of individual leaders — and the organizations and communities they serve — would be nurtured through reflective learning experiences intended to radically expand their sense of what is possible.
That’s what awaits you in this yearlong Regenerative Leadership program for 24-30 mid-career and next generation leaders like you! Our year is framed in a series of four seasonal 2-day residential retreats that carefully weave together:
- “Theory U” methods linking profound change and big results to the quality of awareness and attention we cultivate
- Adaptive, collaborative and conversational leadership principles and practices
- Personal coaching and networking between sessions for leaders who want to maximize their impact.
Participation in a yearlong Regenerative Leadership program allows each individual to:
- Increase our practical effectiveness as innovators and social change leaders who are transforming our organizations, communities, and sectors
- Listen and respond to what is emerging within us and also in the world around us, and
- Cultivate our inner life and capacity to live and lead from within
This unique leadership renewal program offers both emerging and mid-career leaders strong support for developing organizational leadership skills, community building capacity, and personal growth in a seamless flow of reinforcing activities. The program blends:
- Methods and tools to acquire skills in facilitative leadership within immediate teams and/or broader companies/coalitions
- Insights and ideas for sparking innovation with and for the community
- Guided personal assessments and deep personal reflection
As your Regenerative Leadership retreat facilitators, we are committed to providing leaders with a high quality program, and a leadership formation and renewal experience that creates a powerful learning community and a long wave of benefits, not only personal and professional but also community benefits. We are passionate about this work, and to it we bring decades of experience in revitalizing both communities and leaders from the inside out, and in coaching leaders for social innovation and transformation.

An Iowa native, Ben spent the first dozen years of his working life addressing sustainable development, social change, and alternative futures through journalism, public policy, economic development, and community organizing. After digging a little deeper in himself through a mid-career round of graduate studies, Ben has since devoted the last twenty years of his life to building and revitalizing communities and communities of practice from within, preparing mid-career and next generation leaders to better cope with adaptive challenges, and cultivating inner life as the greatest source of identity, creativity, and courage. Ben really enjoys mentoring others at the growing edges and stages of their life and leadership. In founding the Center for Regenerative Society (his fourth nonprofit startup venture) and shaping its programs, Ben consulted nationally with colleagues and peers on both coasts who direct centers and institutes that share some affinity for our work in an effort to incorporate best practices into our leadership renewal programs.
