Towards a Transformative Leadership Praxis

What Does it Mean to be a Transformative Leader?

In today's society, polarization is the most prevalent word. The people in the middle refuse to engage because they are sick of getting shouted down, yet they make up the. It is time for cooler heads to prevail and for the reclamation of self-respect, which is key to making progress and being an agent for positive change. Let's gather a collective of people who want to harness their power by having discussions that are free of extremism and hyperbole. We welcome your participation.

You are cordially invited to join our Transformative Leaders Cohort.

In this community of practice, you will join a group of leaders, change agents, and activists in bi-weekly workshops on the latest best practices and tools to manifest your intentions at work, at home, and in the community at large.  You will also get three 1-hour of coaching sessions from one of America's most talented professional development coaches and transformation experts, Dr. Marcus Robinson, and the Social Innovation Group team.

Social Innovation Group Chicago knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 1989, our founder
Dr. Marcus Robinson set out to create a body of work that can help us transform our individual lives, redefine the meaning of work,  create more inclusive and equitable spaces to live our best lives, do our best work, and contribute our signature gifts to the world. We believe that by working together we can overcome our challenges of today.

An erroneous and dangerous assumption is the view of man that dispels his capacity to take a stand toward any condition whatsoever.  Man is not fully conditioned and determined; he determines himself whether to give into conditions or stand up to them.  In other words, man is ultimately self-determining.  Man does not simply exist, but always decides what his existence will be; what he will become in the next moment.

By the same token, every human being has the freedom to change in an instant . . . One of the main features of human existence is the capacity to rise above such conditions and transcend them.  A human being is a self-transcending being.
