    • Reinventing Yourselffor Mission PossibleA six-week journey of transformation Presented by: Annette Brackin, Journey to Results, LLC
    • "Leadership exists when people are no longer victims of circumstances but participate increating new circumstances. Leadership is about creating a domain in which human beingscontinually deepen their understanding of reality and become more capable of participatingin the unfolding of the world. Ultimately, leadership is about creating new realities." —Peter Senge An Invitation to Enter New Learning: Reinvention This transformative learning program offers innovative practices for assuming expanded leadership. The state of today’s world means radical change in human living and working are the norm, and the result is an ongoing sense of disruption, turbulence, and reduction of certainty.Yesterday’s success is insufficient to accomplish your mission possible today. Reinventionbegins with who you are “being,” not what you are “doing.” Your way of being is alsoknown as your observer. You will work with the observer model – the source of yourreality and your actions. Reinvention is not improving, fixing or changing yourself; it’sabout reinventing a whole new you to accomplish whatever your mission possible is,whether your mission possible is business or personal. This learning program is a WorldCafé and Collaborative Inquiry learning prototype that is suited to revolutionarychange, and to healthier and more sustainable living practices and results. − From the Newfield Network, www.newfieldnetwork.comThe Observer Model The Soul Knowledge Action Results Double-Loop Learning Single-Loop LearningYour “way of being” in the world is the alignment between your physical bodydispositions, your moods and emotions and your language patterns (speech acts,always-already-automatic listening and your interpretations). Your way of being is alsoknown as your observer. Language is not separate from your moods or your physicalbody and movements. They are linked and this coherence becomes a predisposition foraction, and what is and is not possible for you to accomplish. 2

    • The Learning Process This unique Collaborative Inquiry strategy bridges state-of-the- art learning theory with practical application in the work place over time. Rather than a one-day workshop where practical application is limited and workplace experience is non-existent, this program consists of 3 evenings, followed by 3 full days, spread over 6 weeks to facilitate the integration of theory and application to workplace challenges. Through the experience you will learn a fresh social technology to develop collaborativelearning environments and address highly complex business needs. In addition, you willincorporate personal transformative change practices.You will create and implement new practices both individually, and in groups. In groups,you will take new actions together, reflect on those actions and potentially shift yourperspective of reinvention in the workplace. Through individual and group work, you willhave the opportunity to engage in more meaningful and effective coordinated action. Theprogram incorporates the following processes:− Cycles of action and reflection− Learning, as a whole person, through expanded ways of knowing (epistemologies)− Using the imagination as the gateway to other learning capacities− Transformative learning, with the goal of perspective shift− Integral practices to design new language habits, moods and emotions, and body dispositionsThe core learning strategy fosters breakthrough thinking and action and draws out thehighest potential of individuals and theorganizations of which they are a part. It is anaction-learning approach that asks you toobserve your current reality, reflect on yourinterpretations, and act in more meaningful waysto create a new reality and future. 4

You will be making and sharing “new meaning” together.− Please wear casual, comfortable clothing as physical movement will be involved in the program.Program ValueThe program is currently offered upon request with pricing based on participants.Participants will receive:− Three days and three evenings of program attendance content− Two group coaching sessions− A learning journal with handouts to record reflective notes− Beverages and snacks− A template for conducting future Collaborative Inquiry groups and a resource bibliography− A 30-minute, end-of-program personal coaching session to discuss each participants’ one-page reflection paper and action plan 5
