Mainstreams and margins present myriad adaptive challenges and opportunities for everyone who lives, works, and aspires to leadership in the 21st century. Mainstreams represent what is predominant in the group. Margins are what is easily ignored or undervalued. Both exist in every group; and organizations and communities live and die, in part, by the relationships that prevail between the mainstreams and margins. 

The ability to skillfully navigate this powerful dynamic plays a big part in successful outcomes and healthy process, in both our personal and professional lives. Nowhere can we sidestep this phenomenon and still succeed over the long term. 

In this experiential workshop participants will begin to recognize both marginal and mainstream roles that they play in society; boost awareness of the characteristics of each role; explore past experience to see how our understanding of mainstreams and margins effects leadership decisions; and uncover best practices for greater impact today and tomorrow.
