4Sight: Advanced Conscious Change Leadership Development

Loading Events

4Sight provides a development path to becoming a world-class Conscious Change Leader or consultant, able to strategically guide even the most complex organization transformation to deliver breakthrough results.

4Sight focuses and integrates two key areas:

  • Organization Transformation: Learn to plan, design, and implement transformational change that delivers breakthrough business and cultural results with maximum adoption and sustainment.
  • Personal Transformation: Achieve personal breakthroughs in your own mindset, behavior and performance that will solidify your Personal Presence and ability to see solutions to complexity that most others miss.

The program is conducted over five months in four, one-week in-person sessions. The material is applied to participants’ live transformational projects and real-life challenges so learning is completely relevant.

Industry experts, multinational corporations, large NGOs, all types of organizations, government agencies, and intergovernmental military alliances send their best and brightest leaders and consultants to 4Sight to learn how to apply the Being First System of Transformation and The Change Leader’s Roadmap Methodology to deliver breakthrough results from change. We also deliver this advanced program in-house.

The 4 “Sights”

4Sight, as the title of this program, is based on the four essential ways of “seeing and perceiving” that enable Conscious Change Leaders to consistently succeed at leading transformation:

  • Seeing Systems: Seeing inter-dependencies and how parts interact to impact each other and the whole organization
  • Seeing Process: Seeing how actions and events unfold over time to impact each other and results
  • Seeing both Internal and External Dynamics: Seeing how the inner human dynamics of mindset, emotion, and culture impact external results, and vice-versa
  • Seeing Consciously: Being consciously aware of one’s mindset in action, and seeing beyond one’s own perspective to include other worldviews

4Sight is an advanced development program, designed with the intensiveness and focus of a graduate school program.

  • The process begins as soon as you register. There are two questionnaires to fill out—a personal questionnaire about you, your strengths and your learning objectives, and the Human Synergistics Leadership Styles Inventory (LSI). You will receive the results of the LSI in the first session. There are also pre-work questions to provide us about your experience with leading or consulting to organizational and two books to read, both written by the facilitators, Drs. Dean Anderson and Linda Ackerman Anderson.
  • You will be scheduled for a 90-minute one-on-one coaching call within a month of the program with one of the lead facilitators to explore the 4Sight experience, your learning objectives and, of particular importance, the personal Breakthrough you will bring to the program and work to master throughout the process.
  • Over the next five months, there are four in-person training sessions. The first three sessions are hosted in Durango, Colorado, USA, and the fourth is in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. Each session lasts 4 ½ days, and all sessions are required for graduation.
  • Participants pair up with a peer coach – another participant – to support one another and add momentum to the personal and project learning that occurs during and between sessions. There is between-session work as well, which is thorough but not burdensome.
  • Graduation takes place at the successful completion of the fourth session.
  • Graduates of 4Sight automatically become a part of the Being First Network, a worldwide community of practitioners and change leaders who connect and meet to further their development and seek support on their ongoing projects. All graduates can attend 4Sight Retreats that are held periodically.
