Join us for twenty-four hours of fun with your ALF family and learning new tools to improve your skills as you work in the community and in your profession. This year's retreat will be held at the Meritage & Vino Bello Resorts in Napa, November 16 & 17.
All Sr. Fellows, Boardmembers and Class XII Fellows are invited to attend. Spouses/partners may stay with you at the hotel, but all events are for ALF members only to maximize conversation and dialogue among members.
Sunday's keynote speaker Bill Isaacs is Founder and president of Dialogos, and a leading authority on collective leadership, dialogue, and the design and implementation of organizational learning. His book, Dialogue and the Art of Thinking Together (Doubleday), was featured in Fast Company as a guide to "the secret of good informal conversation," and has been acclaimed by a variety of reviewers as the definitive guide to profound change through speaking and listening.
Bill's keynote address is "The Power of Collective Identity and Distributed Leadership." At a time of global transition and crisis it is increasingly imperative that we find and activate new and effective forms of leadership. Doing this however requires that we change our ideas about change. Distributed problems require distributed solutions - leadership at all levels. This session will examine several fault lines in conventional ideas about change that leaders at all levels continue to use, but that no longer work, and propose a path forward that can activate entirely new levels of creative action. We will in particular examine the critical thresholds of identity across which leaders today must come to be in position to provide clear assistance to others, and insure effective action.
Monday keynote, James Mayer, Executive Director of California Forward, will speak about what Californians must do to improve the state's systems of governance. California has long been a land of opportunity. But our state is stressed by tremendous pressures associated with a growing population, evolving social issues and an increasingly global marketplace. The state's public programs - especially those critical to California's long-term success, such as education, health and human services, transportation and environmental protection - have not kept up with these challenges. Check out the Sacramento Bee article for background.
