We are excited to announce a new award sponsored by Arbinger: the Turn the World Outward Award. This award celebrates individuals, organizations, and communities that are helping in some way to make the world a more outward-mindset place. They are not necessarily connected with Arbinger—they might never have even heard of outward mindset—but they are living out, in ways large or small, values that deserve celebration.

The Outward Mindset Skills for Leaders workshop has been revised and renamed Outward Leadership. As in 2018, we are offering this workshop immediately after the Annual Training. The one-day course will be held on Thursday, June 27, with a train-the-trainer on Friday, June 28.

The Outward Leadership workshop equips leaders with a suite of 38 practical tools to ensure that they and their employees are working with an outward mindset. So that leaders can quickly reference and apply the tools, they are grouped into four categories and listed in a Workplace Situations Index containing 30 common situations faced by leaders and their teams.

Anyone who has completed the two-day Developing and Implementing an Outward Mindset workshop is welcome to attend the Outward Leadership course on June 27. While the standard price for Outward Leadership is $495, the price for those who attend the Annual Training is $95. Licensed Arbinger facilitators who attend the Annual Training and an Outward Leadership course can attend the Friday train-the-trainer at no additional cost.


This year, we are pairing best-in-class speakers, training, and content with world-class luxury accommodations. Arbinger has secured premier rooms at the Little America Hotel, one of Salt Lake City's four-diamond hotels, for a discounted rate of $209/night or government rate, while rooms are available. Call 800-281-7899 and mention Arbinger to receive this rate in the Little America’s top-tier rooms. Space is limited—reserve now!

Located ten minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport, the Little America is within walking distance of historic Temple Square, high-end shopping and entertainment, and gourmet restaurants.


We understand you may need to convince your leaders see that attending the Arbinger Summit and Annual Training is a worthwhile investment. Here’s why you should attend!

This event is a unique opportunity to dive deep into outward mindset implementation, learning not only from world-class speakers and Arbinger master teachers but also from one another—from leaders and facilitators in organizations like yours who have recently and successfully achieved incredible results by implementing outward mindset programs. Specifically, you will be able to:

Attend keynotes by senior executives who have led large-scale transformation processes
Participate in multiple breakout sessions that hone facilitation and outward mindset implementation skills
Share best practices from others in your military and government communities
Learn new content from Arbinger master facilitators

The packet includes:

  1. Pre-filled SF-182
  2. Draft 2019 Annual Training Agenda
