Upskill Workshop for Leaders and Teams

'We don’t become conservationists to be leaders. That’s why it’s worthwhile to question ourselves and to improve our skills in areas where we are not traditionally trained. The Tune into Your Truth workshop helped me to think in fast and dynamic ways. I was surprised by the results! There is real value in Design Pathways’ approach. Their work is going to help a lot of conservation leaders.'

Join us for Tune into Your Truth, an Upskill leadership workshop!

As we embark on a new year, it is an important time to prioritize ourselves, reflect on our leadership journeys, and start the next chapter of our stories.

We tell stories about our threatened species and ecosystems. But there’s so much more we leave out about who we are, how we lead, and the unique experiences that shaped us to do this challenging and important work.  

People evolve. Our leadership evolves. And so should our stories.  

That’s why we created a new Upskill leadership workshop called Tune into Your Truth. This workshop is for you if you lead teams as a manager, director, or executive. You can take this workshop with other leaders like yourself or you can join with your team. Below are all the details, so you can decide which option works best for you and your team’s unique needs.

'As conservation leaders, we don’t like to share our personal stories because we’re private and we put our mission first, but it’s important to have balance. The Tune into Your Truth reflective exercises pushed me to think about and structure my leadership story in new and meaningful ways. I highly recommend it!'

'The Tune into Your Truth workshop was amazing and I encourage fellow conservation leaders to take it! In a couple of hours, I gained deep insights into myself beyond my expectations and crafted my leadership story. I loved the guided step-by-step process and the workbook exercises. I will use these tools for the rest of my career.'

'I knew this workshop would be good, but wow! It exceeded all of my expectations. I've never participated in a leadership workshop that allowed me to dig so deep into my own personal journey. The learning experience is so thoughtfully crafted and everything magically came together. The workbook exercises were simple and the fast pace of the workshop helped me to not overthink. It was a lot of fun and the two hours flew by way too fast! The experience was hugely rewarding and I got so much out of it.'

'The Tune into Your Truth workshop helped me rethink how to find my voice. I found it very useful to take the abstract thoughts in my head and operationalize them as statements, especially at a pivotal time while I am writing a book and considering a successor for my life’s work with OURF. If you are on a pathway to greater leadership and want to have fun learning with other leaders, this workshop is for you!'

'You find a lot of tools on the Internet, but you don’t know how to use them. In the Tune into Your Truth workshop, the process was perfect and applying the tools was easy. I discovered new things about myself that I wasn’t thinking about before. I didn’t realize how much I needed this. I was able to design new behaviors to stop wearing masks and now I feel like I have more control over the next chapter of my leadership story.'
