The Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS) prepares leaders, change agents, and organization development practitioners through small group experiential education to pursue and achieve individual, business, and social justice goals.
We focus on:
LIOS is a competency-based program meaning students must demonstrate mastery of skills to pass. LIOS teaches models, skills, and tools in a group setting and grounds the learning in experience. We use the group experience to more easily and reliably transfer learning into practice. Students are learning by doing rather than just thinking.
One of the fundamental methods we use to accomplish this is an industry adapted “T-group” which uses Ron Short’s innovation of a fishbowl that was adapted for industry by Robert P Crosby and used throughout his career to achieve exceptional business results in a variety of settings.
