You asked us for more time with the leaders and innovators who spoke at Boot Camp. We listened.

Campfire Conversations are conference calls where you can help shape the agenda, hear more from your favorite presenters, explore topics you may have missed at Boot Camp, and more.

Aimee Allison, former host of KPFA’s morning show and founder of Oakland Seen, was our Boot Camp keynote presenter on June  2. If you attended, you know how inspiring Aimee can be and how transformational her thinking is.

Get Coached!

Posted by | May 5, 2011 | Announcements, Blog, Events | 0 Comments

One of the best – and one of my favorite – parts of Boot Camp has just been announced:

CTI® will once again offer free half-hour coaching sessions to all boot campers.

I’ve been working with a CTI-trained coach for several years now, and I’ve been through their coaching fundamentals course, so I can personally attest to the numerous benefits of experiencing coaching. Use this opportunity to:

  • overcome personal and professional road blocks (my coaching work led me directly to my current job at Craigslist Foundation!)
  • build and manage collaborative relationships and teams
  • strengthen your business or organization
  • get unstuck from cycles of behavior
  • unlock the potential within you to achieve your community-building dreams

Beyond your coaching session, experience how you co-active coaching skills can help you as a community leader by participating in the breakout session “The Transformative Power of the Co-Active Approach” from 2:45-3:45 pm.

This really is a special chance for all boot campers, and I hope you can join us on June 2 to harness the power of coaching for yourself.
