Leadership Circles

Here is how it works, members who are facing a thorny adaptive challenge can apply to become Senior Leadership Fellows and receive coaching and support. Other members volunteer to serve on their Leadership Circles by committing to five 90 minute peer consulting sessions over a six month period. We will work to match Fellows with a small and diverse group of peers. 

Video Library

Visit our video library of short and long videos and webinars. Although it is only in its infancy we already have some great insights from Professor Ron Heifetz, Professor Dean Williams, Professor Hugh O'Doherty, Prime Minister George Papandreou, and Governor Jennifer Granholm, amongst others. 

Peer educator support group

The Peer Educator's Support Group is a group for leadership educators in universities, professional schools, and secondary education. Each cohort includes those who have begun to teach leadership in an academic setting in the last 3 years, and those who will offer a course for the first time. Find out more here.

    A 5-day Residential Group Relations Conference conducted in the Tavistock tradition, sponsored by the Boston Center for the Study of Groups and Social Systems


    Visit www.leadershipcsgss.org for more information and conference details.

    Dear ALN Community & Friends of The Boston Center for the Study of Groups and Social Systems,
    I am pleased to announce this year's annual January 5-day residential group relations conference conducted in the Tavistock Tradition sponsored by CSGSS, Authority, Leadership & Intersectionality: Creativity@Work.
    In this time of rapid change organizations must constantly innovate and experiment, creating new sources of anxiety. To thrive, organizations must recognize complex and intersecting social identities, and endeavor to leverage them to discover new pathways to progress. Yet understanding the impact of social identities on authority and leadership is elusive. 
    This conference explores two primary layers of organizational life – one that we see and know, and another that is hidden, out of awareness yet influencing much of our activity. These dynamics deeply influence how leadership is exercised, how roles are mobilized, how differences interact with work, and how decisions are made.
    Examining under the surface dynamics and learning how they shape organizational life can lead to discovering uncharted possibility and can reveal buried challenges. Yet the opportunity to examine the nature of organizational life, what we import into it and our collective influence on it, is rare or non-existent. This conference is your opportunity to creatively explore that work.
    The Conference Staff and I, look forward to seeing you there.
    Candice A. Crawford-Zakian, Psy.D.
    CSGSS Residential Conference Director


    Authority, Leadership & Intersectionality: Creativity @ Work
    is a 5-day residential group relations conference in the Tavistock tradition, designed to help participants learn first-hand about unconscious activity in social systems and its impact on organizational life.
