Listen to Lore Baur discuss this ground-breaking course with Miki:

Whether you are an "official" leader or not, this ongoing program will support you in freeing yourself to fully step into leadership in all aspects of your life and work. and play your part in making life work for everyone.

Know first that leadership is not necessarily about your position in the world. Regardless of how many people are in your sphere of influence, your leadership is about taking responsibility for the whole, whatever that whole is: your family, your own life, a company you're running, or the world.

Miki says:

"Leaders are people who align themselves and their lives with what matters most to them. And who choose actions that support everyone in the systems in which they live."

That means homemakers, CEOs, spiritual leaders, board members, mothers, fathers, managers, volunteers, and YOU are ALL in positions of leadership.

Whoever you are, whatever your challenges are, this program is designed to support you in responding to the call of our times through ongoing coaching and support in the following areas:

If this sounds like a lot, know this…

  1. Because this program lasts a full ten months, you will have a unique opportunity to receive acceptance, tenderness, and support from Miki as she accompanies you on your path towards full empowerment; and

  2. When you focus in this way, you're likely to discover your own healing accelerates in many areas – even though you're not directly focused on healing – because you will be moving towards purpose and vision.

This program gives you the opportunity to approach life from the driver's seat… connected with others… able to ask for what you need… and able to respond to what life presents with heart-felt care for all – and for life itself.

And… you'll be receiving support and companionship along the way…

How the Program is Structured…

After the groundbreaking success of this program over two years in moving people forward in their leadership and establishing support networks that may last for years to come, we have decided to repeat the program without any change except to add two more weeks per Miki's request, given how much people find this program to become an oasis, a place of refuge and a lab of exploration of how to be in this time in human history. Miki's 2019 program includes:

We believe that the blend of Miki Kashtan's laser-sharp focus and passion for building a world of leaders who can make a decided impact on our world, and the skills and expertise of her hand-selected colleagues, is a unique and dynamic combination.

Register and you will also receive a comprehensive packet from Miki that includes dozens of different reference documents supporting leadership, ranging from inner freedom to organizational systems. It also includes a comprehensive self-reflection tool that you can use week after week throughout the program and beyond. 

What People Are Saying About Miki's Courses

"I watched myself change over the course of Miki's class. As a woman of African Descent, I was initially very timid about speaking especially to a large number of people that I did not know. As time went on, I learned the power of my voice and I learned that my words had impact even on those I did not know personally. I am so grateful that I chose to take the course and I look forward to another year of change and deeper learning." Anita F.

"The biggest joy for me was seeing and experiencing how NVC principles change the lives of participants including myself: it makes them more free, alive, open, creative, active, vulnerable and so on." D.V, Lithuania

"Having this consciousness stream to dive into every week for 8 months, was just the kind of steady current of support I have longed to discover in a world where I have grown accustomed to feeling like an outlier." M.G.

"Miki helped me understand that engaging with people can be very healing. So, since then I have been talking to people like I have never done before." Ralph N.
