Have you ever co-led a program or project with another leader, and walked away thinking, never again? Do you dread having to collaborate, with the sub-text, I just wish I could have done this on my own?
The Parachute Project, designed by Joss Rowlands and John Breeze, was born from a co-leading experience during the prestigious Coaches Training Institute’s Leadership program.
In keeping with their own greater purpose of bringing co-leadership into the world, Joss and John work with leadership partners to help them embrace the experience of creating meaningful relationship, collaboration and intimacy. This opens them up to the joy of co-leadership, which expands their own influence as leaders in their own worlds.
John Breeze is a recovering engineer who’s now in his fourth (or so) career and believes he may have finally got it right! John trained with the Coaches Training Institute’s coaching program, then embraced the Leadership program. He’s been involved in various ways with the coaching and leadership community in the last five years and was recently recruited into the Co-Active Leadership Co-Ambassador team. John works with business owners and creative self-directed professionals, helping them harness their unique strengths and talents to build a thriving business and take responsibility for their lives.
Joss Rowlands is a CTI coaching grad, CPCC, and Co-Active Leadership grad. Her focus is self-mastery in the areas of intensity, complexity and drive. She brings the results (and mis-steps) of this to mentoring coaches and leaders in transition. Joss embraces the concept of Leaders holding responsibility for their worlds, while noting that these self-same words promote diversity and individuality and a greater need for the inter-dependence of spirit.
Join us for a conversation that will expand your own leadership through co-leadership.
