Amara Events

We offer a set of yearly open Amara events and events in collaboration with other organisations and partners, upon request. We design each event and choose the facilitators with care, to match the developmental needs and interest of the group at hand. All our events are done in the spirit of inquiry, in a experiential learning environment and participants express their experience as powerful and transformational.

Amara is one of three organisations credited to offer a GLP certification workshop. We arrange one each year in the Nordic region and are open to invitations to offer it in partnership in other corners of the world as well.

March 4-6, 2024 at Henley Business School, Pohjoisesplanadi 21, Helsinki, Finland

Transformational Leadership Through Action Inquiry, Action-Logics and the GLP

A highly experiential 3-day workshop where you will learn to practice Action Inquiry, the only approach statistically reliable generating both personal and organisational transformation. It will deepen your knowledge about vertical development, the leadership action logics and how to support vertical development in yourself and in others. The impact will be felt in your own leadership development and the possibilities for greater impact on others with whom you engage.

Please send us a message if you’re interested in attending an Amara event or organising one in collaboration, for your team or organisation.

A programme tailored to your needs:

Power of Three – Towards Self-Organising

​This online programme is a catalyst for transformation within organisations. The process helps you develop your own and your team’s capacity to self-organise, to be alert, aware and adaptive in facing the challenges of today and those of the future. The programme combines the powerful threads of in-house trios, experienced outside facilitation, and diversity of thought from other organisations.


During the course of our lives, we all grow through different stages of development called action-logics. The action-logics could be described as “operating systems” or “lenses” through which we look at and operate in the world.

Amara Associate Lisa Markwick reflects on her learning from co-facilitating the first of Amara’s Power of Three programme with a deep and deepening inquiry about the challenge of Action Inquiry in action as it opens up our mindsets to create space for change and transformation at many levels.

Bill Torbert tells you how GLP (Global Leadership Profile) can help you in your everyday work life what are the benefits.


The Global Leadership Profile Certification workshop in Helsinki, May 2017, was a life changing experience for me. The atmosphere that Jane and Heidi were able to evoke in the group was very special. It was truly living the transformational leadership in action, where every moment was a place for self-reflection and sensing, when to take action, and when to be in silence. I highly recommend this workshop for anyone interested in deeper development, and I suggest to engage in the evening activities as well. It was great to have Bill and Elaine on the line as well, as they are the theoretical experts of the GLP. The international group and great venue location at the heart of Helsinki really highlighted this amazing experience.
