Yes, at Southwestern College we train psychotherapists, counselors, art therapists. But the longer I am here, and the more alumni we track, the more I am convinced that we are also training Leaders. (“Training” is probably not the right word—maybe “cultivating the Leader within” or something like that. People who come to Southwestern are already independent thinkers, and many have leadership qualities just waiting to be discovered, acknowledged, cultivated and celebrated…)
The purpose of this blog, “Conscious Leadership in the Service of Transformation”, is to offer some observations from my now many years in leadership in the mental health industry, the transformation industry, the personal growth industry. As with all of the Southwestern College blogs, we welcome students, alumni, faculty, staff and interested readers to offer their thoughts as well, as guest bloggers.
