Leadership Drum Circle

CCAL’s Leadership Drum Circle uses mindful coaching and active listening with reflective learning to explore themes of advanced leadership hinging on authenticity and centeredness, relational awareness and healthy group culture. Partnering with Calgary's One World Drum Company, participants receive instruction in basic rhythms and hand technique of West African and Afro-Cuban drumming in a series of weekly Drum Circle workshops over eight weeks. Find your place in the rhythm of life exploring team building and authentic leadership through African drumming in a high performance culture of creativity, communication and trust at Haskayne’s Leadership Drum Circle.
