Terri weaves the best of current research into relatable and practical approaches to growth and development. She leads movement and sound experiences designed to support your learning and well being throughout the workshop.

Suzanne and Terri are known for the lasting change that comes from attending one of their workshops.

They are researchers, educators and pioneers in the field of vertical development—an emerging, evidence-based set of best practices that focuses on growing leadership agility. Their conscious leadership curriculum is grounded in the neuro-science informed SyncUp4 Leadership model and the Internal Family Systems model. Internal Family Systems is recognized as one of the most powerful ways to work with the unconscious.

What Happens at a SyncUp Leadership Event?

The antidote is moving ourselves and our organizations out of autopilot.

This retreat will shine new light on the conscious leader journey and how you might be the source and the solution to your own and your team’s overwhelm, autopilot, burnout and low engagement.

Reconnect to your authentic core, vitality and inner knowing.

Taking time out of your day-to-day activity for self-reflection is critical to uncovering your unique greatness. This brings internal harmony and joy and a greater capacity to respond to increasingly complex challenges. You will leave this retreat with new perspectives and practices and more courage to drive clear-headed action in your daily life.

Our potential to grow our minds to expand our consciousness is infinite.

We have the lake, mountains, trees and huge boulders surrounding us. The shamans of all indigenous cultures are inspired and guided by the wisdom of nature. You will feel the energy and be renewed as you dive deep.

Time in class for new learning with extraordinary professionals

Our potential to grow our minds—to expand our consciousness—is infinite. Imagine your brain and mind are an iceberg where more than 95% of what motivates your behavior is below the waterline of your conscious awareness. Our workshops give you the skills—and a specific process—to dive below the surface and explore past experiences, beliefs and patterns that limit your strategic choices and get in the way of a growth mindset.

The antidote is moving ourselves and our organizations out of autopilot.

SyncUp Events Deliver Results That Change Mindsets And Lives

“This is a unique development experience because the methodology is immediately accessible and impactful. Unlike other development approaches, this process is not outside of you, attempting to tell you who you are. Rather, this process gives you the means to work with what you already know about yourself and how you respond to situations. You inquire into yourself, your patterns of behaviors, reflecting on how some of your behaviors don't serve your intentions. Through self reflection you begin to know and understand yourself better, and see how you can shift your patterns with greater consciousness. You are doing this work yourself; no one is doing it to you or directing your new choices. The instructors provide a superb supportive environment in which to do this work. I highly recommend this program.”

'In their own words...'

We asked attendees of our most recent SyncUp event to tell us how they found the experience:

The Conscious Leadership workshop was incredibly transformative for me. During the four days, I explored my past experiences along with deeply-held beliefs and patterns that have shaped me as a person. I discovered parts that have enabled me to thrive and those that have limited my personal growth. I came away with a renewed clarity of purpose, optimism for the future, and a more integrated sense of Self that will help me in my personal and professional lives.

Susan FleetwoodSenior OD Director, Microsoft

This past year of unrelenting pace and change has caused me to question everything about myself and my capabilities. I needed to pause for deep reflection and am so glad I finally made this investment of time. I feel re-grounded, more in control of all the choices available to me, with a much better sense of my power. I could not have achieved this without the framework, facilitation, and community conversation in SyncUp's Dive into Conscious Leadership Retreat.

Brenda Stone, SPHR, SHRM-SCPDirector, Organization and Talent Development, Pivot Bio

Working with the SyncUp4 model and IFS has enabled me to continue cultivating professional opportunities and to ultimately make sound and balanced decisions. My jungle of activity originating from a young self-doubt part has been tamed. I am only beginning to realize how my various parts fully enhance me even as I work to negotiate with any one of them.

Andrew ButcherDirector of Innovation & Resilience, Greater Portland Council of Governments

The SyncUp program has armed me with tools to become a more conscious leader and increase my comfort with ambiguity, uncertainty and change. By focusing on self-facilitation first, this program helps leaders gain awareness of unconscious behaviors impacting decision-making and team dynamics so that we may create space for authentic collaboration and increase our organizational effectiveness.
