Collaborative Leadership Development Program

360 Circle

The Collaborative Leadership Development Program (CLDP) emphasizes becoming transformational leaders, fostered by gospel values as witnessed through the life of Jesus.


As leaders from wherever we stand, we are called to share this divine spark, leading in a way that leans toward non-hierarchal arrangement of relationships and exploring the wisdom of the whole. The goal is to allow the emergent to unfold and impact both individuals and organizational/social systems.


This 14-month online program empowers women religious and charism carriers (e.g., associates, co-members) to strengthen and expand their capacity to become transformational leaders. Each person is supported to be a leader in informal and formal roles, harnessing existing leadership abilities and developing an increased capacity to navigate the uncertainties and change experienced in ministry, community, society, and church.​

Do you desire to: 

  • Join with others to explore how to navigate the rapid changing realities of religious life, church, and society?

  • Use the Leadership Circle Profile (360 assessment tool) to become familiar with your leadership effectiveness and grow in your leadeship capacity?

  • Increase consciousness about how you are a leader wherever you stand – in both informal and formal ways?

  • Grow as a systems thinker to understand organizational change?

  • Be a catalyst for transformation in your community, ministry, church, and the world?
