The Invitation

 Being a transformational leader is not about what you do;
it is about how you do what you do—it is about living your deeply held values.

We are dedicated to your evolution as a transformational leader and exploring how it is critical to your and your organization. Bring your leadership edge, your wisdom to the conversation.
The TLC is an intentional conversation and leadership inquiry of how personal and professional transformation occurs within an intentional Community of Practice. Think TED Talks with a deeper dive.

We explore topics such as Human Relationships, New Organizational Models, The Emerging Economy, Ecological Wisdom, and more.
We explore together an exciting new conversation and content, coupled with best practices, such as convening, wisdom-sharing, replication, application.

Value to Your Organization or Community

  • leading-edge content
  • best practices, new leadership behaviors, shared outcomes
  • learnings from Case Studies, collaborative action
  • support for your leadership within your organization.
The TLC is a participatory and generative conversation among organizational leaders, cultural and paradigm innovators, and thought leaders of the emerging economy. Together, we will have a larger impact by co-creating conversations of consequence to leverage individual actions through collaboration, heart- and knowledge-sharing, and collective impact.

The Community of Practice

As a Community of Practice we collaboratively define the emerging discipline of Transformational Leadership. We share stories and insights from our workplaces and community organizations with the intention of building common wisdom and transformational strategies.

Building on the highly successful structure of the Thought Leader Gatherings (205+ sessions since 1998),the Heartland Transformational Leaders Collaboratory (TLC) has convened over 2600 leaders in corporate, non-profit, and independent organizations.

The TLC conversation is intentionally designed: Each TLC session incorporates the traditional TLG format and a new feature: a deeper dive in an exciting, new collaboratory setting to draw out your own wisdom.

We promise that you will leave each gathering rejuvenated, inspired and more hopeful about the future of our planet, as well as filled with insights for your personal journey. 

As you recall your time at the TLC, you may remember the quality of conversation and exchange you experienced.  As you bring to your work and life, you will likely see benefits showing up in your personal relationships, organizations and communities.
