Courage to Lead Instructor & Executive Coach
Alex Dorsey is an inspiring leadership facilitator and executive coach. Her journey and the journeys of the hundreds of clients she has served inform her calming presence and the adaptive, strategic, and insightful approach Alex uses to affect change. She is also the founder of Platform Impact Leaders Fellowship, a year-long restorative program for mid-career leaders of color in transition.
In 2002, Alex left her first career managing high-profile community revitalization projects for the City of Portland and began consulting. Her experience grew leading nonprofit, social enterprise, and for-profit organizations at various stages of development. In 2011, Alex was led to Parker Palmer’s work and the Courage to Lead (CTL) program, which resulted in her preparation as a facilitator by the Center for Courage & Renewal. In addition to facilitating and coaching, Alex designs leadership programs for clients across the US.
Alex is delighted by the full-circle opportunity to co-facilitate CTL’s Cohort 8 summer and fall retreats. An active CTL alum and chair of Leading From Within’s recently formed Equity & Inclusion Committee, Alex knows firsthand the gift Leading From Within is to many nonprofit leaders and the sector-at-large.
