March 5th, 2020 from 1:00pm-2:30pm ET

Join accomplished thought leader Alison Whitmire from Learning In Action for an interactive workshop on the “Top Three Ways We Get in Our Own Way: How Our Hidden Narratives Influence Our Choices.”

What’s up with that title!?  Our choices are filtered through our internal narratives. Our narratives reflect and reveal our identity, perspectives, biases and what we believe is “right.” And sometimes, our narratives influence our work in ways that prevent us from being present to deep desires of those we work with.

During this interactive workshop, you’ll be presented with video vignettes of interpersonal conflicts.  You’ll be invited to share your experience and internal narrative. Through a process of self-reflection and discussion, you’ll discover:

  • The dominant dimensions of your own internal experience
  • How your internal narrative influences your choices
  • How to make more present, less filtered choices

When we are unaware of our narratives, they shape us and our work in ways we don’t know, can’t see and may not support others. By becoming aware of our narratives, we can ensure that our narratives don’t get in our way. 


Alison Whitmire is the President of Learning in Action, a company committed to revealing derailing blind spots and creating awareness resulting in breakthroughs. She is an authority in the Emotional and Relational Intelligence, which focuses on our innate capacity to be in relationship with others, even in times of conflict and how we can develop that capacity through conscious awareness and intention. Alison is a Professional Certified Coach, a Master EQ Practitioner and a Certified Narrative Coach. She has thousands of hours of experience coaching CEOs and business owners. She is certified as a 200 RYT Yoga Teacher and is currently enrolled in a Mindfulness Meditation Teacher training program. Alison is a TEDx speaker and a 3 time TEDx Conference organizer.  Prior to Learning in Action, Alison was a Chair for Vistage International, one of the world’s largest CEO membership organizations, for 8 years, running CEO round-tables. Prior to that, she worked in a series of Fortune 500 companies, running business units inside those companies. In the early years of her career, Alison practiced as a CPA with Ernst and Young. She has an MBA from the University of Chicago and BBAs in Accounting and Finance from Texas Tech University.

Thank you to all who made the first ITL Network Conference a resounding success!

Watch now!  A beautiful tribute to our 2019 ITL Network Conference.



Join Us on Our Journey

Welcome to the Georgetown ITL Network, a formal professional network of graduates and faculty from the various Certificate Programs of the Georgetown Institute for Transformational Leadership!

The mission of the ITL Network is to create connections and foster continued learning and growth among all members of the global ITL graduate community, to support their professional journeys as they extend ITL’s mission of transformational change.   


The ITL Network is the longtime vision of many members of our community -- graduates and faculty.  The idea may have first surfaced more than a decade ago, as we began to see the momentum and eagerness for continuing to learn together as a community of practice.  Over the past year, a small committee of dedicated graduates, faculty and ITL staff has met regularly to conceptualize realizing this dream. Thanks to this group of dedicated colleagues we have established a dynamic and accessible professional network, known as the ITL Network.  


Please join us on this journey of connecting, collaborating, learning, and discovering as we work together to awaken, engage, and support the leadership required to create a more sustainable and compassionate.



The ITL Network is powered by the time and talents of an all-volunteer team.  We want to ensure that we can keep membership costs as low as possible for our entire community (as well as to provide complimentary membership to those who may need it).  If you are interested in volunteering in support of the upcoming Conference, please reach out to Tracy LaPorte at  If you are interested in the possibility of serving on other ITL Network committees (see the full list in the "Resources" dropdown above), contact Dorel Shanon at
