About CPL Communities

About CPL Communities

CPL Communities is a learning and practice community for Art of Convening Graduates & allies to advance and scale convening as an expression of your purpose as a transformational leader. This private network brings graduates together to share our hearts and minds, best practices, and stretch ourselves as fellow thought and purpose leaders.  

Our Mighty Network brings graduates and other purposeful leaders together to share ideas, ask questions for fellow conveners, post your events, and more.

What is Convening? 

Convening is about relationship and a way of being and expressing your purpose. Purposeful leadership is intentional, a continuous process of becoming who all of you are meant to be as a whole person. 

Convening is about being in service to something greater than yourself and of benefit to the whole. Because you are always in relationship, you are never not convening.
