“We are a closer knit and more collaborative group than before the program and the quality of our relationships have deepened. Lori did a great job of guiding us through the process and we all learned a great deal about ourselves through reflection and challenging each-others preconceived notions and ideas.” Simon Carter CIPP, Claims Supervisor, The Co-operators

  1. Build an effective, cohesive, and supportive team

“Not only do I have a greater understanding of the scope and the complexities of a true community, I am equipped with practical tools to go out into the world and build meaningful and authentic communities with those around me. I am so grateful to have had this experience and would highly recommend this program to everyone!“  Teri McMackin 

The Kalliergo Community Leadership Certification Program trains participants in the cutting-edge leadership style required to lead an organization today.

In this program, participants not only come to understand what a community can be, and how to guide a group in its evolution into community, they have an experience of the community-building process as they are learning about it.

The Program has Two Parts:

In part one, participants come to fully understand what a community is, how its members act and feel, and what it takes for a group to evolve into community.

In part two, participants learn how to build, guide, and maintain a community. This includes developing the skill of problem-solving and leading a group in consensus.

Forums and Formats

The program is offered online (via Zoom) and in person.

There are two formats available:

  • 6-ninety-minute sessions spread out over days or weeks
  • 2-day Retreat-style format held over a weekend, or on two days a week apart

Both comprise roughly nine hours of training.


Participations with full attendance and participation will receive a Community Leadership Certificate.
