Collaborative Leadership: Modeling Collaborative Values in Business, Life and Community

Friday, April 27, 2018, Four Points Sheraton, Norwood, Massachusetts

This one-day interdisciplinary networking and educational event will provide an opportunity for

MCLC members and other collaborative professionals to deepen and expand their collaborative practice skills.

Plenary Session: Enhancing Collaboration through the Power of Authenticity with Jack Beauregard

The comprehensive integrative approach of the plenary presentation addresses the intellectual, emotional and psychological processes that work against the establishment of collaboration, and ways that these tendencies can be counterbalanced. The cogitative approach of the session unleashes the Power of Authenticity that helps professionals be true to themselves during the collaboration process, and recognizes the foundational premise that professional development is based on personal development. Attendees will learn of a System of Self-Discovery which presents a systematic methodology for them to personally connect to their authentic selves and helps them become authenticity-based collaborators and leaders.

Jack Beauregard is the founder and CEO of the Successful Transition Planning Institute, an educational and training organization that helps people discover their true selves, connect to the transcendent level from which they can actualize their potential, and live authentically.

Jack has trained over fifty professionals on four continents in his personal transition coaching methodology, and is the author of three books and seven handbooks. His 7 Principles For Living With Authenticity shows people how to create new lives filled with new meaning and purpose while going through a major life transition such as experiencing divorce or empty nest syndrome.
