Individuals from all backgrounds are encouraged to participate in our upcoming Whole Leader Roundtable. Hosted by the Reell Office of Seeing Things Whole, these gatherings allow leaders the opportunity to network and provide insight to each other on the leadership challenges of today.
JOIN US AT THE NEXT ROUNDTABLE ON APRIL 12
Our next in-person Whole Leader Roundtable is Wednesday, April 12th (5:30 – 8pm) at Augsburg. You can also check out the Whole Leader Roundtable Schedule online at https://www.augsburg.edu/seeingthingswhole/whole-leaders/roundtables/. The Roundtable is free, but advanced registration is required.
Our next Zoom Roundtable is Friday, April 21⋅12:00 – 1:15pm. This opportunity is open to current Augsburg Graduate Students only.
Contact Keri Clifton at email@example.com to register for either opportunity or to get more information.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
One individual brings a challenge for the group to explore using the Seeing Things Whole Threefold Model to understand a “whole” way forward. Advice is not given, but questions are asked as the group supports the individual to discover the many dimensions of the challenge.
Challenges can be anything the individual is navigating, including how to balance work and life, how to make professional decisions about a new career path, or how sustain oneself in a challenging yet fulfilling environment.
Through the Roundtable, we build trusting relationships that support leaders to reflect openly and gain insight to tackle challenges. This process supports their ability to see things whole.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
Read what past Roundtable participants are saying.
“I find the model to be very thorough in a way that fosters a unique depth of conversation.”
“I am more mindful of others. We all have stories and hearing the others reminds me the people I interact with on a daily basis have stories as well that affect our interactions.”

What are the politics of nature? Who owns it, where is it, and what role does it play in our lives? Does it need to be tamed? Are we ourselves natural? Erin Sharkey and Michael Kleber-Diggs will discuss, A Darker Wilderness: Black Nature Writing from Soil to Stars, a collection of personal and lyric essays in conversation with archival objects of Black history and memory. The collection explores stories spanning hundreds of years and thousands of miles, traveling from roots to space–finding rich Blackness everywhere. Together we will consider the significance of nature in our lives and on the role of nature in the lives of Black folks.
Light refreshments will be served. Parking is available in Lot D. Books can be purchased in person at the event and online. Photos from Augsburg’s Pan-Afrikan Archive will be on display.
When: Monday April 3rd 4:30-6 p.m.
Location: Hagfors Center, Room 150 & Zoom
