The Relational
Leadership Academy

Open to new dimensions inside of you

There is a leader within you.

With a comprehensive education and a cohort of skilled peers, that leader will emerge.

At The Connection Institute, we know facilitation. We optimize learning potential for groups. We want you to have transformational leadership training so you can share this gift with the world.

You want to make the greatest difference that you can, and the Relational Leadership Academy is designed to help you reach that potential. The coursework spans the depth of psychology, communication training, coaching and the relational arts, with a synthesis that is dynamic and catalytic of HUGE growth in clients’ lives.

The engine of this growth is the Relational Inquiry Approach (RIA), and by engaging with this work you will learn to harness the power of connection within a group to enable you to gracefully and skillfully guide others on their journey of transformation.

If you are a transformational leader, online educator, or healing arts practitioner– this is the place for you.

Leadership Training. Evolved.

Through my work with TCI I've expanded my capacity to receive attention and support and discovered how to relate without trying to fix or change others.

Dalphne Lorian
Relationship Coach

Through this work I’ve learned to connect with others in some pretty unimaginable ways, and have moved through some deeply internalized limiting beliefs. I now have more feelings of self love, playfulness and confident extroversion.

The Curriculum

Relational Inquiry Approach

Dynamic Learning Environment

The Relational Leadership Academy has been such a source of community, learning and professional growth for me. As a psychotherapist for several decades, the platform has supported me in showing up with more skill, authenticity and presence with clients. I’ve also had profound experiences of connection and personal healing during RLA events. This practice develops vital skills leading to greater intimacy and connection, the perfect antidote for these times. I truly believe that having these skills and this depth of community with others is essential to our success as leaders and facilitators; that this work can help us resolve a lot of global issues and create a much more harmonious world.
