This month collaboration came to our door in the form of an exemplary collaboration, which confirms that ALG is doing the work we seek to do in this region. Since the beginning of the Certificate program we have dreamed of a Central America free of inequality, corruption and poverty. When we formed ALG, we did it based on the conviction that if we could change the leadership of the region we could see a different Central America. But transformational leadership is not only having the tools, skills or wisdom, but also working in solidarity with other leaders and all humans around you. That is why we focus on both collaboration and leadership skills in our programs.
We work this way with the hope that we will receive calls like the one we received this month from Matilde Torres, graduate of the Certificate in Leadership and Collaboration from 2018, who exercises her leadership at the Melanie Gissell Foundation. This foundation accompanies grieving processes for people and families that are in great pain. In addition they facilitate certifications in Coaching, with a focus on Coaching for grief. Through her organization, Matilde will offer two places for members of the ALG community at no cost. That means that leaders already graduated from our Certificate, who may not be able to participate in this type of training otherwise, will have access to more opportunities to personally and professionally increase their impact on Central America. This is the power of collaboration, whether small or large, to multiply the waves of positive change in the world.
Collaborations of this size and others frequently pass through our growing network of leaders and with each collaboration we are closer to the world in which we want to live. A world of solidarity, peace, justice, abundance, and support.
This month in our blog Tools for Collaboration we celebrate collaboration, we celebrate Matilde Torres and countless other collaborations that are born here in our network of leaders and throughout the world. These are the people who are committed to actualizing the new world we are building together and who work every day to bring it closer to the present.
