GLA and Amara Collaboration

Amara Collaboration and Global Leadership Associates (GLA), with it’s co-founders and authors of the Global Leadership Profile Bill Torbert and Elaine Herdman- Barker join with the Business Coaching Institute (BCI), to regularly offer this unique 3-day workshop for business leaders, consultants, coaches and researchers, who wish to further their personal development and learn about the power and practice of Collaborative Developmental Action Inquiry. This is an approach that is statistically reliable generating both personal and organizational transformation. All participants complete the GLP and receive feedback on their centre-of-gravity, emergent, and fallback leadership action logic.

Joining the workshop enables those who wish to take this further to become authorized to use the GLP within their organization or with their clients. One can do so by supervised practice of using the GLP with Elaine Herdman-Barker or Heidi Gutekunst. Once certified, you will become part of a growing community of practice to support this dimension of the work.

Facilitated by Elaine Herdman-Barker, Heidi Gutekunst and Jane Allen, with a special guest appearance in an online session by Bill Torbert, this event offers a programme that blends
the what, why and how of transformational leadership development, including:
1. The theory and practice of Collaborative Developmental Action Inquiry (CDAI)
2. The assessment and deepest appreciation of leaders’ predominant action-logics – their
implications, qualities and shadows
3. The ongoing practice of Action Inquiry and the richness this brings at the personal, team and
organizational scales
4. A current organizational case from the Nordic context


The workshop will be held in Sannäsin Kartano conference hotel, which is located 45 minutes east of Helsinki by car.
