What potential lies in our crises? What can we learn from the past? What is it like to be a human being in times of change? How can we co-­create a future that works for all?


Let's not waste a crisis

 


“To dare is to risk one’s footing momentarily – not to dare is to lose oneself” [Soren Kierkegaard- Danish philosopher]. He was born on May 5, 1813 in the year when the state of Denmark went bankrupt.  Today we are also facing challenges – this time on a global scale.

Participatory leadership in practice

How do we bring out the best in groups, bring more meaning into our life and work and foster innovation?

AOH is based on bringing stakeholders together in conversation in order to find solutions for the common good.


When human beings are invited to work together on what truly matters to them, when self organizing space is opened, people will take ownership and responsibility for moving their issues and ideas into wiser actions and innovative solutions that last.


 


The AOH is more than a training program. It is response to a world that is becoming increasingly complex and fragmented, where solutions and innovations lie not in one leader or one viewpoint, but in the bigger picture of collective intelligence.


 


A 3-daytraining in participatory leadership in practice


We will work with, demonstrate, practice and explore how participatory methodologies can be used as a foundation for leadership and learning ingroups, teams, communities and organisations.


 


Who should come?


Leaders, managers, facilitators, trainers, teachers, consultants, social innovators, entrepreneurs, community and youth workers - people who are interested in arranging their work, their teams and their organisations in more participatory and meaningful ways. 


 


The training includes:


• Hosting conversations as a core leadership and learning practice


• Participatory processes, methods and tools (such as Circle, WorldCafe, Appreciative Inquiry, Theory U, Storytelling and Open Space) 


• Working with questions relevant to your specific context


• An invitation to a network supporting you in your practice

The Art Of Hosting Conversations That Matter

Wie gelingt es unsere Region zu einem attraktiven Lebensraum zu machen?

Wir laden Sie ein, mit einander neue Wege der Zusammenarbeit zu erforschen, die uns helfen, kreative und innovative Losungen fur die drangenden Fragen unserer Zeit zu finden.


The Art Of Hosting Conversations That Matter
Art of Hosting’ könnte man inetwa mit Die Kunst, GastgeberIn für gute Gespräche zu sein’ übersetzen. Konkret geht es darum, bunt zusammen gewürfelte Gruppen handlungsfähig zumachen, indem qualitätsvolle Räume geschaffen werden, in denen man miteinander über wirklich wesentliche Dinge sprechen kann. Auf dieser Basis können dann gute Lösungen entwickelt werden, die nicht nur innovativ sind, sondern auch breite Zustimmung, Identifikation und Akzeptanz finden.


Die Erkenntnisse und Modelle basieren auf den gemeinsamen Erfahrungen einer internationalen Community of Practice, die als „The Art of Hosting and Harvesting Conversations that Matter(AoH)“ zusammengefasst werden. AoH ist ein Netzwerk von Lernenden und ein Trainingsprogramm dafür, wie Sie von guten Gesprächen zu weisen Handlungen zuschwungvollen Veränderungsprozessen kommen.


Das lernen Sie beim Art ofHosting Training
- Design und Begleitung von Kommunikationsprozessen, die Gruppen dabei unterstützen, sich wirklich wesentlichen Fragen zu stellen und kreative Lösungen zu entwickeln.
- Ihre Fähigkeit wird gestärkt, Selbstorganisationsprozesse zu planen und zubegleiten, sowie die Früchte der gemeinsamen Arbeit zu ernten.
- Sie bekommen Einblick in eine breite Palette von Methoden und Werkzeugen, die Sie dann – je nach Bedarf – einsetzen können: Open Space, World Café, Appreciative Inquiry, Art of Harvesting, Theory U, Storytelling, Journaling, Dialog, Pro Action Café…

17 May - 19 May 2013, Sofia, Bulgaria

The Art of Hosting Conversations that Matter

How to focus our personal energies to move forward in a common direction?

We believe that none of the questions of today can be solved using the methods of the past. We believe that a hall of people cannot be lectured by one person and taught what they should do. We believe that “facipulating” a group of people towards a pre-taken decision will not lead to sustainable results. We believe that today the best decisions are taken in group conversations, with the participation of all parties concerned. 


 


This is a 3-day training in which together we will learn how to:


- build communities by simple, yet powerful processes
- activate collective intelligence

- foster individual and collaborative leadership practices


Over 3 days we will have the opportunity to participate and practice the hosting of conversations that address some of the complex challenges of our community.


 


Why?



Decisions and solutions, we need them every day:

How to drive our businesses, what to do for dinner, how to change Bulgaria’s school system.

We believe this is best done through meaningful group conversations so we want to find the best possible way for creating them together

 

The Art of Participatory Leadership could provide you with the opportunity to find solutions:




  • in business setting

  • in social activities and communities

  • in everyday life and family

  • in policy and strategy development

Learning Village at Historical Vallekilde Folk Highschool (June 2-6th, 2013)


 


A Learning Village is a unique opportunity to get clear on your purpose in the crisis, to start acting more wise together and to build network and connections. You will be part of connecting the dots between the change-makers (Trojan mice) in different countries who often seem lonely in their pioneering work. Participants can bring their ideas and projects and will have ‘open space’ to explore them with others and collective support to bring them alive.

This invitation-video is about the founding story of Denmark, starting with the bankruptcy exactly 200 year ago.


 


It was a time after which a golden age of innovation and creativity was born and the present institutions, democracy, systemic structures and mindset was formed. Some of the beautiful ideas from that time we might have forgotten and need to revitalize, some of them does not work anymore and has to be changed completely.


 


So what is ours to do today? What are the seeds for change and possibility that lie in the present crises? How do we evolve people power and learn to be strong together in the local and global community in times of fundamental change? How do we connect the dots between different possibilities and initiatives ?


 


We will help each other get more clear on these structural and mental issues.


 


Who will you meet?


You will meet qualified facilitators, storytellers and artists and a welcoming atmosphere - the best conditions for learning the dance of the individual and the collective and experiencing and practicing collective co-creation.

Learning Village


The Learning Village as a non-competitive learning lab is rooted in the Danish Folk Highschool movement and it’s concept of life-long learning, and has been practiced at Vallekilde Folk Highschool from the foundation in 1865. Stories have been told here ever since and people became inspired to go out and do good community work afterwards. At the heart of this ‘Learning Village’ are also stories as transformational tools.


 


Stories of transformation


We will weave stories about our ancestors and about our time, our neighborhood initiatives, community building around wind-energy and organic farming. Small stories will intermingle with systemic stories, and we will weave on the story and the actions of our time, as we would like it to be told by future generations. The kick-off story is about the crisis Denmark went through 200 years ago.


 


Keeping the conversations alive


We think of this year’s Constitution Day at Vallekilde as a public conversation lab. We would like you to explore with us how we best frame a truly participatory, cross-generational and co-creating dialogue on the society and community we want. We believe, many of us long for conversations that matter and involve citizens across age, ethnicity, tradition and gender. Contribute with your gifts in a common learning on how we create such collective conversations. On Constitution Day Wednesday May the 5th Vallekilde Folk High School will open the doors for the public. Participants of the Learning Village will step in as storytellers, hosts, harvesters and participants in the public dialogues at the Constitution Day Meeting.


 


SIGN UP HERE before Friday MAY 24th

Art of Hosting through Play

The Art of Hosting through Play : How to ignite 'here and now' leadership?

We welcome you to join us in an exploration of the leading edge of playful, co-creative leadership.


 Why play?

 Freedom and spontaneity are accepted as our natural state. In this state we can allow our imagination and creativity to flourish.


 Our interest is in the potential of play to spark those moments of inspired co-creation that lead to wise and sustained action.


 


 How can play add to all those wonderful tools and resources we already have?


Within the container of ‘The Art of Hosting’ :


 -   We want to show up as our whole selves and set ourselves free to experiment and innovate together


 We want to explore how play can help us to access the deep wisdom and collective intelligence that we might otherwise miss


 -   We want to discover what might become possible if we weren’t afraid to play more


 -  We want to let ourselves be the co-creative, mutually transforming and empowering leaders that we have been waiting for


 You are invited to join the diverse talents of other leaders, trainers, teachers, consultants, politicians, entrepreneurs, social innovators and artists coming together to explore new ways of participatory leadership.

Hosted by:Marian Masoliver, Magda Barcelo, Floris Koot, Chris Chapman

The Art Of Hosting Conversations That Matter

Wie gestalten wir den Wandel unserer Arbeitswelt?

 

Wenn Sie sich auch manchmal diese oder ähnliche Fragen stellen, dann laden wir Sie herzlich ein, gemeinsam mit anderen Menschen aus den vielfältigsten Bereichen neue Formen des Führens und Gestaltens zu lernen.


Im Rahmen des AOH Trainings tauchen wir in diese Fragen ein und erforschen neue Wege der Zusammenarbeit, die uns helfen, kreative und innovative Lösungen für die drängenden Fragen unserer Zeit zu finden.


Der thematische Fokus "Wie gestalten wir den Wandel unserer Arbeitswelt" dient als inhaltlicher "roter Faden" für die Ausbildung in der Methode "Art of Hosting". Eingeladen sind alle an "Art of Hosting" Interessierten, auch wenn Sie keinen direkten fachlichen Bezug zum Thema "Arbeit" haben.


Das lernen sie bei Art of Hosting




  • Sie erfahren, wie bereits zu Beginn der Sinn und Zweck (Purpose) des jeweiligen Vorhabens so konkretisiert werden kann, dass er für alle Beteiligten zum einigenden und treibenden Motor eines Prozesses wird.

  • Sie lernen, wie Design und Begleitung von Kommunikationsprozessen Gruppen dabei unterstützen, ihre wesentlichen Fragen herauszuarbeiten und kreative Lösungen zu entwickeln.

  • Ihre Fähigkeit Selbstorganisationsprozesse zu planen und zu begleiten wird gestärkt.

  • Sie erfahren, wie Sie die kollektive Intelligenz einer Gruppe effizient für neue Lösungen einsetzen können.

  • Die „Atemzüge“ der Prozessarchitektur eröffnen Ihnen ein tieferes Verständnis der verschiedenen Phasen und Rollen in einem Prozess und zeigen Ihnen, wie Struktur und Chaos in eine produktive und kreative Balance kommen können.

  • Sie lernen eine breite Palette von partizipativen Methoden der Gruppenmoderation kennen und wie Sie diese im jeweiligen Kontext effizient und zielgerichtet einsetzen können: Open Space, World Café, Appreciative Inquiry, Storytelling, Journaling, Dialog / Circle, Pro Action Café, Dynamic Facilitation etc.

  • Sie üben sich in der „Art of Harvesting“— der Kunst des „Erntens“ und Verdichtens von Ergebnissen und lernen, wie Gruppenprozesse zu konkreten, umsetzbaren Handlungen führen.

  • Im intensiven Austausch mit andern Teilnehmenden erforschen wir die Arbeitswelt im Wandel. Sie haben die Möglichkeit Sichtweisen, Hoffnungen, Ideen und Lösungsansätze zu teilen und zu vernetzen.

  • So erhalten Sie inspirierende Impulse für die die Gestaltung Ihrer persönlichen Arbeitswelt.

Art of Hosting Meetings that Matter

Are you looking for innovative ways to run meetings and conferences? How can we lead conversations that create change that lasts?

The greatest challenge of our times is not economic uncertainty, environmental collapse, or even the scale of social fragmentation. It is how we can meet and work together across our diversity to overcome these challenges. No matter what sector we work in, what community we live in, or what family we were born into, we are all faced with situations that demand people working together across their differences


The Art of Hosting is a participatory approach used worldwide to create the depth of meeting that transforms our relationships and gets the necessary work done. Please join us for a one day experience to train in this approach or to refresh your practice. A full 3 day training will be in the fall.

Hosted by:Tim Merry, Tuesday Ryan-Heart, Caitlin Frost, Chris Corrigan and Marguerite Drescher

Designing Strategic Change from the Inside Out

How can we build the necessary depth at the centre of ourselves and work to have the breadth of change we aspire to?

This is for leaders and change-makers who want to deepen and expand their understanding of strategic, systemic change. It is a hands-on opportunity to design your own change project, informed by principles and practices from the Art of Hosting, Coming Into Your Own, and the experience of seasoned practitioners working in diverse fields.


Good design uses existing structures, hierarchies, constraints, and resources while creating a generative space for emerging opportunities. Effective leadership begins “inside,” with stillness, clear-seeing, and attunement to unfolding dynamics, and moves outwards to strategies and actions that lead us towards our goals. This track will help you move beyond either/or thinking so that you can access both sides of the power equation: the power of the visible and the power of the invisible.



You will leave with a deeper understanding and practical tools for

• convening stakeholders

• designing interventions

• incorporating diverse voices and lenses

• working with stuck power dynamics and resistance to change

• combining collaborative and hierarchical leadership styles

Circle Training

Finding Strength from the Past to Build our Future - Leading Through Circle & Story

FULLY BOOKED!!!

with Christina Baldwin, Ann Linnea, Marjeta Novak and Natalija Vrhunc

Before there were rows of people there were circles of people who sat around a fire and spoke so that every voice contributed to decisions and actions.
Before there was data and huge quantities of information, people learned what they needed through story and listened for the common thread that could unite them.
When groups of people in the modern world sit down together in a circle and share stories relevant to why they are together, they discover the strength in their past to map a sustainable future.

Circle is a common lineage found in some form in most societies. For 20 years, Christina Baldwin and Ann Linnea have adapted circle to be used in organizations and communities. They have created an infrastructure for circle that has been used across North America, Europe, Africa, and Australia.
Within the circle they integrate the power of stories to create identity and belonging. And they are delighted to join with Slovenian leaders Marjeta
Novak and Natalija Vrhunc to create this training.

This three-day training will be in English and is limited to 30 people at the Hotel Utrip, beautifully nestled in the mountains, 50 km east of Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Art of Hosting Training - Das Führen und Gestalten strategischer Konversationen

Was sind die Grundlagen sinnstiftender Konversation? Wie schaffen wir einen Raum im Raum, in dem man sich authentisch einbringen kann? Wie können wir in der Qualität, wie wir uns das wünschen, leben und arbeiten?

Die Kunst des Führens, Gestaltens und strategischen "Erntens" guter Gespräche. Ein Art of Hosting Training des Bregenzer Salons zur Festspielzeit, Lernen in und mit Natur& Kultur, und wir vergessen auch nicht auf's Innehalten und auf's Feiern!

Die Bedeutung der Konversation wird (wieder-)entdeckt, als Kunst, als Haltung, die die Weltsicht lebender Systeme, genauso wie die Wertschätzung verschiedener Stand- und Ausgangspunkte einschließt.

Was sind die Grundlagen sinnstiftender Konversation? Wie schaffen wir einen Raum im Raum, in dem man sich authentisch einbringen kann? Wie können wir in der Qualität, wie wir uns das wünschen, leben und arbeiten?

Wir laden ein, mit Art of Hosting & Harvesting in die Welt des Gestaltens von strategischen Konversationen einzutauchen. Die heute zunehmend komplexen Probleme machen es erforderlich, innovative Lösungen zu finden. Innovation entsteht in erster Linie im Grenzbereich zwischen Ordnung und Chaos, nicht aber unter starker Kontrolle. Wie aber navigiert man kleine und große Gruppen in einem so hochkreativen Bereich?

Werden diese Lösungen von den betroffenen Gruppen in Gesprächen gemeinsam gefunden, dann werden sie umfassender sein und breite Unterstützung finden.

Otto Scharmers Theorie U ist ebenso ein Ingredienz des Methodensets wie World Café, Open Space und Kreis. In der Mitte steht das „Hosting Self“, sich selbst ein guter Gastgeber sein, anwesend sein. “Die Qualität unserer Aufmerksamkeit beeinflusst die Qualität unserer Ergebnisse”, sagt Otto Scharmer. In diesem Training lernt man, wie man authentisch auf andere zugeht und sie wie selbstverständlich in diesen besonderen Raum im Raum einlädt, wo Präsenz nicht nur möglich, sondern notwendig ist.

Die Kunst, gute und auch strategische Gespräche zu führen, wurde vor ca. zehn Jahren als “Art of Hosting conversations that matter” auf organische Weise ins Leben gebracht und wird weltweit von einer wachsenden Anzahl von Menschen in unterschiedlichen beruflichen Umfeldern erfolgreich praktiziert und laufend weiterentwickelt

Art of Hosting ist einsetzbar überall dort, wo sich Menschen authentisch einbringen wollen und sollen. Bürgerinitiativen, Teammeetings, Vereinstreffen, Mehrgenerationendialog, zum konstruktiven Austausch von Teilnehmern aus verschiedenen Bereichen der Gesellschaft oder innerhalb einer Organisation, oder bei anstehenden Veränderungen.

Kommt, und lasst euch anstecken vom lebendigen, lebensbejahenden Ansatz von Art of Hosting. Dies ist kein theoretisches Training, sondern ein praktisches Erlebbarmachen der Erfahrung, die nur dann ebenso lebendig eingesetzt und weitergetragen werden kann.

Der Ort:
Bregenzer Salon, ein Begegnungsort mit besonderem Flair, zählt zu den Pionieren im deutschen Sprachraum zur Verbreitung und Vertiefung von Art of Hosting. Er befindet sich im Herzen von Bregenz, und ist mit Bus und Bahn gut erreichbar.

Gerne könnt ihr uns für weitere Informationen kontaktieren.

Wir legen Wert auf Qualität von Innehalten, Verlangsamung, und Salonkultur. Darum gibt es ein kleines Rahmenprogramm:

Wer in Ruhe „ankommen“ möchte:
22. Juli: 19.00 Uhr Offener Salonabend mit Menschen aus der Region
23. Juli: Tagesfreizeit; für Teilnehmer von früheren Art of Hosting Trainings gibt es die Möglichkeit an einem „Designtag“, dem Vorbereitungstags des Trainings, mitzuwirken. 21.15 Uhr : Spiel auf dem See: „Die Zauberflöte“

Wir haben ein Kontingent von zusammenhängenden Karten für die Vorstellung „die Zauberflöte“ für EUR 49,- reserviert. Wer davon Gebrauch machen möchte, wende sich an uns bis zum 22. Mai!

Learning Village Statenberg

What happens when we inquiry deeply together into learning, community and possibility… while experiencing it

You are invited to be part of a gathering to inquire together into the depths of our experiences – weather on personal, work, community or societal level – profound shifts we may be in, the synergy of individual and community,  and to harvest the insights we find together.
We will share stories, insights and practice and be in a collective inquiry into the possibilities and simplicity of what happens next. There will be an opportunity to some practical and physical work together as a gift to the place that hosts us.
WILL YOU JOIN US? Please save the date, visit the website and register your interest there so we get an idea of who is coming.

Hosted by:Mary Alice Arthur, Art of Hosting Steward & Story Activist, sometimes based in New Zealand & mostly intentional nomad Ria Baeck, Art of Hosting Steward, Circle and Collective Presencing practitioner, based in Belgium David Reis, Art of Hosting Steward & Soul Gardener, based in Denmark Simone Tiesinga-Poutnik, Art of Hosting Practitioner, witness and host of social transformation, currently based in Egypt with nomadic tendencies James Ede, Art of Hosting Practitioner & Soil Activist, based in Sweden Nina Nisar, Art of Hosting Practitioner & Evolutionary Doula, based in Germany Marjeta Novak, Art of Hosting Practitioner & your happy Slovenian co-host Anna Hanschmidt, Knowmad, based in The Netherlands

As a hosting team, we are exploring new ways to share collective responsibility for the economy of this learning village. We would like to propose an approach which differs from the standard fee for goods or services model, although we are still determining the exact form that this will take. We invite you to learn with us and discover what the future holds for communities who can discover what it means to work well with economy, currency, value and generosity.

New Ways, New Worlds

What are the New Ways that will build New Worlds in Africa - true to the soul and spirit of all our people?

As Einstein said so many years ago - we cannot expect different outcomes, if we keep doing things the same way. One of the main ways that seem to need to change is the way we engage with each other. From the lone leader it may be time to shift to leaders as ‘hosts,’ that build on the best of everyone, enabling co-creation and shared learning. In this space, everyone’s voice becomes important, and we begin to discover how much more is possible when we learn to work together. Truly work together. It may not be easy - but it is essential - if we wish to move into a future different from our past.

We intend for this to be a regional gathering - A pan-African gathering - where together we can connect from the inside out, in an exploration of the New Ways, that will create our New Worlds in Africa. The training thus also intends to strengthen the teams who are bringing this work to other       countries on the continent.

This is not a training for spectators, but for co-creators, eager to chart the way forward, together.

Art of Hosting Training

Wie kann ich auf andere zugehen und trotzdem bei mir bleiben?

Art of Hosting Training in German language focused on the topic (roughly translated from German) "How can I approach other people / how can we form an open and welcoming society while still staying authentic".

Wie kann ich auf andere zugehen und trotzdem bei mir bleiben?


Von 14.-16. November 2013 findet im Maximilianhaus Attnang-Puchheim, OÖ ein "Art of Hosting" Training zum Thema "Nebeneinender / Miteinander - Wie kann ich auf andere zugehen und trotzdem bei mir bleiben?" statt. Das Art of Hosting - "Die Kunst, GastgeberIn für gute Gespräche zu sein" – dient als Werkzeugset für das tägliche Mit-und Nebeneinander von Menschen mit unterschiedlichem Hintergrund und als Schlüssel zu echten Begegnungen.


Art of Hosting könnte man mit "Die Kunst, Räume für gute Gespräche zu schaffen" übersetzen. Konkret geht es darum, bunt zusammengewürfelte Gruppen handlungsfähig zu machen, in dem qualitätsvolle Räume geschaffen werden, in denen diese Gruppe miteinander über die wirklich wesentlichen Dinge spricht. Auf dieser Basis können dann gute Lösungen entwickelt werden, die nicht nur innovativ sind, sondern auch breite Zustimmung, Identifikation und Akzeptanz finden.


Art of Hosting ist dabei mehr als eine Methodensammlung, es ist eine Haltung. Art of Hosting steht für Co-Intelligenz, Zusammenarbeit und Selbstorganisation. Und - weil als Open Source Technologie organisiert - ist es gewissermaßen "das Linux für Veränderungsprozesse". Hunderte von Personen in der ganzen Welt entwickeln den Ansatz laufend weiter, er ist mittlerweile in Nord- und Südamerika, Europa, Afrika und Asien verbreitet. Haben Sie Lust bekommen "Art of Hosting" näher kennenzulernen?

Training Art of Hosting Conversations that Matter

How do we bring out what really matters to us in meetings, organizations and communities and nurture more meaning into our life and work?

The training.


This three-day training explores Participatory Leadership through practising the Art of Hosting and Harvesting conversations that matter. We will work with, demonstrate, practice and explore how participatory methodologies can be used as a foundation for leadership and learning in groups, teams, communities and organizations.


The Art of Hosting is more than a training program. It is a response to a world that is becoming increasingly complex and fragmented, where solutions and innovations lie not in one leader or one viewpoint, but in the bigger picture of collective intelligence.



The training offers:



  • Hosting and harvesting conversations as a core leadership and learning practice.

  • Participatory and systemic approaches, methods and tools as Circle, World Cafe, Appreciative Inquiry and Open Space.

  • Working with questions relevant to your specific context.

  • An invitation to a network supporting you in your practice.


Who should come?


Leaders, managers, facilitators, trainers, teachers, consultants, social innovators, entrepreneurs, community and youth workers – people who are interested in arranging their work, their teams and their organizations in more participatory and meaningful ways.


The Art of Hosting is based on bringing stakeholders together in conversation in order to find solutions for the common good. When human beings are invited to work together on what truly matters to them, when self-organizing space is opened, people will take ownership and responsibility for moving their issues and ideas into wiser actions and innovative solutions that last.

Hosted by:Miljenka Plazonic Bogdan, Yurie Makihara, Helle Solvang, James Ede, Erik Lemcke, David Reis and Jan Hein Nielsen

El Arte del Liderazgo Participativo: México

¿Cómo facilitamos transformaciones en nuestras organizaciones, empresas, grupos, comunidades y sociedad en general, en donde se potencian nuestras capacidades individuales y, al mismo tiempo, la riqueza de la comunidad?


El Arte del Liderazgo Participativo (Art of Hosting) es una respuesta a un mundo que resulta cada vez más complejo e impredecible, en donde las soluciones e innovaciones no residen en un líder único o en un solo punto de vista, sino en la capacidad de ver y entender el sistema completo en el que interactuamos. Esto es posible al acceder a la inteligencia colectiva de un grupo o una comunidad, lo que nos permite actuar efectivamente.


 

 

Hoy en día, tenemos la oportunidad de repensar nuestro concepto del líder y crear las condiciones necesarias en nuestras comunidades, empresas organizaciones y sistemas sociales, para que cada persona pueda ofrecer sus habilidades únicas al servicio de la comunidad y contribuir a su prosperidad y bienestar.


 

Hosted by:Aerin Dunford Juan Carlos Kaiten Megan Martin Paola de la Concha Sergio Beltrán

Growing Hosting Artistry

The world is calling us into more powerful and challenging work. How do we, as practitioners, grow our hosting artistry to rise to these challenges?

 

Thousands of people around the world have been to an Art of Hosting training or learning experience and the numbers are growing. These encounters are often a first taste of what AoH is or could be.  Many begin to practice and then questions arise, particularly around the skill needed to host ever more challenging conversations in communities, organizations and systems. Many - maybe you - want to deepen their practice and aren’t sure what’s next.  This call has arisen out of the desire to offer and be in a continual learning journey, with other practitioners, of what next levels of artistry are needed, individually and collectively, in hosting and how do we grow as practitioners?



If you are wanting to grow your hosting artistry, deepen your own practice, meet yourself in reflection and be in collective inquiry about the themes we have identified, to grow your experience with and knowledge of the four fold practice and/or you have identified the challenging places you are called to be, then please join us.



You are invited into a personal  and shared exploration of this hosting offering, where we are drawing on what we’ve been learning in deep practice in Australia, Brazil, Canada and the United States in settings as diverse as health care, inclusive communities, bridging cross-cultural tensions in communities, working with early childhood trauma, power and privilege, environmental causes, in business, non-profit, government, communities, urban and rural settings and the global AoH Stewards gathering. We are ready to be in inquiry with you around deepening our practice and growing our individual and collective hosting artistry - because it is, after all, an art.

Hosted by:Roshanda Cummings Dave Ellis Stephen Duns Kathy Jourdain Jerry Nagel

Registration details

We will begin on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 with lunch at noon and complete our time together on Friday, January 31, 2014 with lunch at 1:00 pm. Please make your travel and accommodation arrangements to be with us for the full time. We are able to offer a one-time only registration fee (thanks to support from the Bush Foundation) of 350.00 (future non-supported offerings will be approximately $1,000.00 depending on location).

Art of Manifesting Emergent Leadership

What is the leadership call that just won't let you go?

March 17 is a 1-day experiential leadership program that draws upon worldviews and tools of The Art of Hosting, Adaptive Leadership and Community Engagement. This unique approach includes theories on emergence; participatory practices and tools; adaptive leadership strategies; provocative and paradigm shifting questions from Peter Block’s Community Engagement work. Our capacity as leaders requires expansion and courage. Through a combination of self and collective reflection we can Manifest Emergent Leadership. Being adaptive and responsive enhances our capacity and impacts our leadership results. When we show up as genuine leaders with our fears and idealism, we experience the vulnerability required for growth and change.
Advancing Your Leadership Practice on March 18 is a ½-day (8:30-1:00, day 2) experiential program focusing on action planning to advance leadership projects and initiatives. Utilizing the “Pro-Action Café” - an innovative yet simple methodology for hosting conversations – we explore questions and projects that matter to the people who participate. These conversations link and build on each other as people move across boundaries, cross-pollinate ideas, and discover new insights into the questions or issues that are most important in their life, work, or community.

Art of Hosting Conversations That Matter: Fostering the Conditions for Community Engagement

What are the leadership skills needed to foster the conditions for community engagement and co-create the new narratives wanting to emerge?

We live and work in increasingly complex times.  A new set of leadership skills is being cultivated to address these times.  Skills that tune into and are responsive to ambiguity and emergent circumstances, that foster generative conversations where perspectives can collide to spark new ways of thinking.  Skills that invite engagement in whole new ways - in our communities, systems, organizations and teams. tapping into collective wisdom, knowledge and intelligence inherent in any group, any system, any community.


Skills that invite us to show up in the fullness of who we are by growing self awareness and sense of personal power, becoming present to ourselves and each other, listening with new depth, stepping into co-hosting and co-creation. We are in the space between narratives.  What is the new narrative you want to be part of co-creating?

The Art of Participatory Leadership

How could we further strengthen core teams and learning networks amongst Transition and Resilience efforts?

Come explore how to unleash collective genius and build adaptive and leader-full communities.


We invite those engaged and committed to the many aspects of resilience to come together from Transition Towns, sustainability initiatives, local economy, permaculture communities, sustainable business, local food, healthy families, and more.


Our hope is to create powerful ways to learn together, build effective teams and partnerships that help us work better in our own communities, as well as invite others to build resilient communities. There’s an incredible amount of work going on in many different networks. We are thrilled to bring these powerful networks together, to add to what Transition’s Rob Hopkins has been speaking about scaling up through building learning networks and core teams.


Our intention is to work together to build capacity for the next evolution of work in New England. We also invite passionate friends from other areas who want to learn with us and create transformative change.


Rooted in the Four Fold practice of the Art of Hosting, this event teaches a participative approach for leading, convening, and engaging groups. The practice begins with being present and hosting one’s self, from there we participate in learning conversations, hosting and convening conversations, and co-creating (initiatives, change, teams, etc.).


Why?Why The Art of Participatory Leadership?


Build Learning Networks - connect with other leaders and innovators.  Explore how we can work and learn more powerfully together.


Build Strong Core Teams and Partnerships.  Broaden the skillset within your group, work more effectively and enjoyably together, engage teams, organizations, and community stakeholders in meaningful conversations that promote resilience, belonging, innovation, and contribution.


Enhance our skills and abilities to work with complexity, uncertainty & change.  Develop chaordic confidence, face challenges that don’t have solutions, use wise process planning architectures for small and large scale initiatives, and host strategic conversations.


Apply what we are learning to change projects that you bring. From policy and national initiatives to grassroots organizing, business change, local initiatives, social ventures and movement building. Grow your hosting practice and try something new!


We hope you will join us!

Art of Social Innovation

LEARNING IN COMPLEXITY THRIVING IN CHANGING SYSTEMS WORKING WITH DIVERSITY & DIFFERENCE

participatory leadership in times of change

 

The complexity we are facing in the world right now is pushing us to ask some new questions about how we act, what our organizations do and how to respond:


- How can we increase our capacity to learn?


- How can we thrive in complexity and shifting systems?


- How can we create initiatives and innovate within complexity?


- How to work with relationships, difference, diversity?


In Toronto and beyond, social innovators and pioneers of new ways of doing things are popping up all around us. We can’t predict the results. This by nature is complex. The complexity can be overwhelming - halting our learning, making us feel stuck, tense, and even perpetuating fragmentation and conflict - with and among those who are also trying to make a better world a practical reality.


This training will explore:


How we can use methods and practices of collaborative and participatory leadership to connect social innovation efforts, learn from one another and address the complexity of the challenges facing communities and organizations today?


This is for people who:


- are ready to step into making a better world a practical reality


- see that making a better world cannot happen in isolation


- want to increase their capacity to learn


- need to work with diverse voices and invite diversity into their work


- are ready to develop their own capacity, and the capacity of those doing good work around us

Art of Hosting Bulgaria - The Power of Communities

“We all dream about strong communities. How do we engage people around a shared purpose?”

Strong and resilient communities are the foundation for a sustainable and prosperous future. Communities could help us overcome economic, cultural, business and environmental crisis in a fast changing world.

It seems, though, we have forgotten how to be in a community - what should we do, where should we start from? We live focused on the individual and not giving time to what matters - the people we share dreams with. In low-trust communities, such as Bulgaria, we hear that group efforts fail. That people cannot work together and success can only be achieved on an individual level. We would like to try to break these deep-rooted patterns, together with anyone who feels the need for sustainable communities.

We invite you to explore the individual and collective practices of a community and the techniques that could support us in building a community with a true purpose.

This training is applicable to many contexts- non-governmental organizations, academia, youth, and government - as they all in some form work in or with communities.

Whether your role is to work with groups and teams, or you’re just interested in the topic you are invited to participate in the conversation.

The event is being organized according to the principles of Shared Economy - all costs (hotel, food, compensation for hosting team, etc.) will be transparent to the participants and everybody will be invited to contribute to covering them. There will be a suggested price, however we will follow the principle "Give what you can and a little bit more".

More information on the hosting team, registration and budget will follow very soon.

The Warrior of the Heart dojo trains in practices that develop and build abilities for skilful actions and wise decisions. Our goal is a reliable ability to work effectively in difficult situations and the building of personal and team capacity, through dynamic learning experiences. There are many different forms of warriorship present in our world today.

18 June - 20 June 2014, Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Art of Hosting Amsterdam

How can we create empathic spaces in business, education and community, to contribute to a society in which we live up to our individual and collective potential?

Empathic spaces - what are they?

We believe that empathic spaces are environments and working or social atmospheres where diversity is welcome and individuals are encouraged to be fully present with their unique strengths, talents, perspectives, and challenges. Empathic spaces invite people to be, work and live with their whole selves, leading to strong team bonding experiences, smoother decision making processes, and fulfilled individuals within groups or organisations.

Creating empathic spaces means creating safety for the people within them, be it the bullied teacher or student, the misunderstood employee or the immigrant in a community. When safety is a given, expressing ourselves becomes easier to do, perhaps without the unconscious fear of being left alone or loosing our job. With the underlying understanding that "you are good enough as you are", we think the full potential of ourselves as individuals, and as members of businesses, schools, or communities, becomes a tangible and beautiful goal to move towards.

With this knowledge we can move towards a society where each person values and is valued for their individuality. Maybe it is possible, then, to live and work in a way that fulfills our dreams and our potential, contributing to a compassionate society that is successful in every sense of the word.

Is this something for me?

We invite individuals, businesses, students and educators, and people generally curious about bringing positive change to the way we think and act in society. We invite people with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and a willingness to learn, to come together for this training.

Coinvolgere in Trasformazione

Come coinvolgiamo noi stessi e gli altri nella trasformazione a cui aspiriamo e per la quale siamo pronti per impegnarci a fondo?

COINVOLGERE NELLA TRASFORMAZIONE” sarà il nel primo modulo di serie di incontri disegnati per apprendere semplici e potenti processi e modelli teorici che accendono la leadership interiore di ognuno (concetto ben diverso dall’essere o meno manager), e di imparare come esercitare questa leadership attraverso pratiche innovative di collaborazione partecipativa, che saranno applicate a casi concreti durante il seminario.


ROMA, ci incontreremo il 30 Giugno e il 1 Luglio 2014. Abbiamo pensato a una formula residenziale (ovvero un luogo dove soggiornare una notte), nel verde nei pressi della città, per approfittare delle ore più fresche della giornata per lavorare.


Cosa succederà nell’incontro “Coinvolgere nella Trasformazione”?


In questi due giorni di incontro, coinvolgeremo noi stessi e ci coinvolgeremo con gli altri presenti, praticando modelli partecipativi che sono risultati efficaci nei vari paesi dove già si praticano, per promuovere una reale trasformazione.


Ci proponiamo di rispondere a domande come:





  • Come coinvolgo il mio cliente / i gruppi di stake-holders nell’esplorazione dei propri bisogni?




  • Come stabilisco un accordo di mutuo apprendimento e scoperta? Una relazione in cui tutte la parti coinvolte traggano beneficio, in cui tutti possiamo imparare insieme nel processo di collaborazione?




  • Come introduco il mio “non sapere” come la risorsa più grande per il progetto?




  • Come ottengo che il mio contributo sia valorizzato nei progetti in cui lavoro?




Cosa ti porterai via dal workshop?





  • Indicazioni su come tener conto, nei tuoi progetti, di aspetti sistemici che magari prima ti sfuggivano




  • Una valida guida su come coinvolgere altri in conversazioni significative in cui il contributo di ognuno sia davvero valorizzato




  • Una conoscenza non solo teorica ma sperimentale di alcuni processi partecipativi ( alcuni tra World Cafè, Open Space, Circle, Appreciative Inquiry, Storytelling, Action Learning)basati su principi di auto-organizzazione




  • L’ingresso in una comunità di persone che condividono simili passioni e valori




Questo incontro non è per osservatori: il team dimostrerà e insegnerà mentre tu praticheraiformati di indagine da applicare direttamente ai tuoi contesti: porta i tuoi progetti, idee e temi!


Un avviso! Se entri in questo spazio, potresti non uscirne uguale a prima: sarai invitato nella tua stessa trasformazione. In questo percorso, preparati a confrontare i tuoi assunti di base sul tuo lavoro, il mondo o qualsiasi altra cosa.


Poichè ospitare significative conversazioni per il cambiamento è, nella sua essenza, un complesso lavoro sistemico, i primi due incontri titolati Coinvolgere nella Trasformazione è sono i primi di una serie di moduli durante i quali approfondiremo le diverse dimensioni della trasformazione, applicandoli direttamente ai temi critici delle organizzazioni e delle comunità.


Potrai partecipare a qualsiasi modulo: ognuno ha validità a sè stante ed in ognuno apprenderai e approfondirai metodologie e modelli: c’è molto più da imparare di ciò che può rientrare in due giorni di formazione!


Gli incontri di Art of Hosting Trasformazione fanno parte di una una famiglia di eventi di formazione del network internazionale Art of Hosting e ne seguono gli stessi principi generali.


Lingua dell'incontro: Inglese e italiano, con traduzione consecutiva in Italiano.

Hosted by:Rainer von Leoprechting, Valentina Catena

The Art of Hosting Conversations That Matter

What do you dream is possible when you create good conversations to improve social and economic conditions?

The Art of Hosting, and this training, is a response to a world that is becoming increasingly complex and fragmented, where true solutions and innovations lie not in one leader or one viewpoint, but in the bigger picture of our collective wisdom.


·       It is an experience for all who aspire to learn and find better ways to work with groups; ways that nurture collective wisdom, shared learning, good decision-making and effective actions.


·       It creates opportunities for ownership and responsibility where ideas are explored and solutions can be put into action.


·       It is a practice ground for all who aspire to bring out the best in others. It is built on the assumption and experience that we need to find new solutions for the common good, whether in corporations, government, education, non-profits, social movements, communities, or families.


·       It will enhance your skills to: understand the implications of your organization as a living system to deal with increasing complexity, tap into the collective intelligence of your team, organization and/or community engage effectively with diverse stakeholders.



·       It provides the basic theory and practices of the specific skills required to live and work in the tension between chaos and order – The Chaordic Field – where learning and innovation take place and where wise and sustainable change can be discovered.

11 September - 13 September 2014, Tel-Aviv Jaffa, Israel

AoPL Traning in Israel

How can effective change in reality emerge from conversations that include our feelings and intentional listening?

 

Its been in the making for almost a year, and in this time of war, our call is clearer than ever.
The violence between us and within is a constant threat, but also pushes us to act and co-create the change.


take a short tour of our Journey to the First AOPL in Israel, so far, in this Prezi presentation, or check out our Website & facebook event






WHY THIS TRAINING? WHY NOW? 


We believe that true and deep human conversation can help us connect, motivate us, & allow us to share our passion for change. 
Organizations, communities & even families will be able to adapt to future challenges when they learn to host meaningful conversation within them. 


we have learnt through our experience in social and environmental change , especially in the Israeli 2011 Social Protests, that although we have the right intentions, we often lack the tools to create sustainable partnerships for our common good.


The Art of Hosting is a response to a time when institutions and democracy itself are failing to address the increasing chaos in our world, and is and fertile ground for new, effective, healthy & sustainable Patterns of organizing, innovating and interacting.


The complex movement from conversation to effective action requires courage, skill, and the ability to grow beyond our comfort zones, to co-create something new.


Discussing this call a few months ago, we felt that Israeli society was ready to take a leap in conversation and communication.
Since than war has come our land, and the need for meaningful conversation has become much greater.
Now is the time to make spaces that allow us to share our fear and hope, and grow the light.


One of the saddest things that has happened in the last few months in Israel is that moderate or compassionate voices are not only drowned out, but bullied and silenced on the net on in the streets. We need to teach ourselves how to hold different point of view, even opposing ones, in the same conversation.
Diversity, Democracy & Freedom of speech hang in the balance.


Now is the time to build relationships that will drive the change forward. Time to experience methods and tools to engage people at a deep level.
Time to create the necessary framework for systemic transformational change, and the questions burning within.


As change agents here in Israel we feel a new story emerging, challenging us to harvest, listen and grow all the we have learnt & have become.
We invite you to witness and hold this calling with us, in the AOPL training in Tel-Aviv Jaffa.


Love and Peace to all, may we all know better days.

Art of Participatory Leadership

How do we move from taking the initiative to truly building resilient coalitions for change?

Join us for a 3-day intensive training into the Art of Participatory Leadership, experiencing and putting into practice simple yet very powerful methods for hosting meaningful conversations and building resilient organisations and communities for profound change.


We bring together business leaders, change agents, community workers, social entrepeneurs, policy makers: people who are passionate about their work, their business and their community and who like to change things for the better.


Participants are interested in building for change from the bottum up, cocreating new solutions and coalitions. Yet, how do we move from the promising beginnings to truly sustainable change? How do we keep the energy flowing and people involved? How do we work with all those different interests at the table? We know it is tough, tedious and at times it just seems impossible to find ways to move forward. But there are ways.....


From the practice of the Art of Hosting (in combination with insights from Theory U) we will teach you a participatory approach to bring together and involve groups to bring about change. A leadership practice combining the personal with the larger system, working with personal insights, dialogue, facilitation and cocreating new solutions for complex social questions. A combination of theory, safe practice within the group and working on a case from your own daily practice.


The training will be in Dutch. The location is not yet known, but it will be central for both Dutch ad Belgian participants.

The Heart of Hosting the Subtle Energies

How would our world change if we acknowledged and included the subtle energies into our life? What would our life and work look like leading from our collective heart?

The Invitation
We are excited to invite you to a deep and fascinating exploration into the realms of the subtle energies and how they are so essential in creating a field that supports and sustains heart centered relationships. We will learn how to be a bridge, a channel between these two worlds and to connect into the collective consciousness where all answers lie.


How will we do this?


  • We will explore and share experiences on how to acknowledge subtle energies in our life and learn to read and work with it



  • We will deepen our understanding about the field and how to tune into it



  • We will practice creating and holding space for emergence to happen



  • Above all, we will work on ourselves, as we are the channel for our own work in the world


If you want to explore and experience how to sense and work with the subtle energies, and how to create and hold a heart centered space - come join us!

The Art of Participatory Leadership: A 3 Day Exploration into Hosting Conversations that Lead to Wise Action

What does it take to transform cultures of fear, scarcity and competition into cultures of trust, resourcefulness and collaboration?

"We can't solve problems using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." ~Albert Einstein

The way we have always done things is no longer working. The issues and challenges we face as local communities and a global community, are more complex than ever. Participatory leadership recognizes where and why traditional leadership falls short. It challenges the beliefs and assumptions that form the base of those ideals.

In exploring the possibilities of participatory leadership, we will step into an experiential learning process that is designed with the belief that we have the resources we need - even thought we may not yet have the answers. Together, we can discover what is possible and what opportunities for change we can co-create. We will learn to foster leadership within ourselves and within the people with whom we live and work.

This gathering is not for spectators. It is for those who believe there is a better way; those who are tired of boring meetings, those who are tired of spinning wheels around the same issues; those who are ready to embrace ways to move forward with wise action and meaningful results.

Human Potential and Collaborative Leadership

What is the wisdom and courage you need to increase your capacity to solve complex problems in the environments you work and live in?

We live in a meeting culture. We have schedules packed solid with  meetings, and somehow, very little gets done. Instead, the real work often occurs in the hallway between meetings. People are starving for more effective meetings to drive change and progress. That’s what the Art of Hosting is all about. We teach collaborative leadership to help organizations increase their capacity to solve complex problems. 

Art of Hosting is a suite of facilitation tools, sometimes explained as a philosophy or a set of beliefs and values that draw out collective wisdom from communities or groups. This three day intensive is designed for you to experience and learn simple yet powerful processes that build community, collective intelligence, foster individual and collaborative leadership practices, tap into the inspiration and brainpower of your teams, stakeholders, community members, and harvesting the collective wisdom. When human beings are invited to work together on what truly matters to them, they will take ownership and responsibility for moving their issues and ideas into wiser actions that last.

Hosted by:Jerry Nagel Kathy Jourdain Michael Kline Howard Stanten Sal Martignetti Erin Wright

The Art of Learning Together

How do you build learning communities and core teams that enable large scale participation?

The Art of Learning Together


How do you build learning communities and core teams
that enable large scale participation?


November 11-13, 2014 Asheville, NC


As facilitators, educators, managers, and community organizers, now is the time for us to come together, to stand boldly and compassionately at the intersection of learning, education, practice and transformation for the sake of the greater good. Now is the time for us to be learning together.


You already know the power of learning. You’ve experienced the magic of people coming alive when they let in new information and allow themselves to be changed -- taking on new perspectives, new worldviews, new practices, or new insights. You are clear that safe, engaging and fun learning experiences can help people live their life’s purpose, fulfill their company’s mission, and foster healing and resilience in communities. You’re hungry to take your own knowledge and experience to the next level.


Come explore with us different methodologies, practices and patterns that surface diverse perspectives for wise action. Contribute your knowledge and deepen your capacities to work with core teams and build environments that nurture continued learning.


At The Art of Learning in Community you will:

 


  • Explore at your learning edge, stretching to get the most of out our time together




  • “Learn on the job” and gain hands on, practical skills for facilitating learning with opportunities to immediately apply what you learn




  • Learn how to tap into group wisdom and facilitate in situations with diverse and differing perspectives




  • Expand individual and collective understanding of learning, learning in community and the impact and organization of core teams




  • Move beyond limiting beliefs that get in the way of facilitating active learning environments




  • Focus attention on learning together what could never be learned on our own, surfacing solutions, ideas and deeper inquiries




Our aim is that we leave feeling more equipped to facilitate conversations and assemble core teams in our learning communities.


 


Imagine yourself immersed in a field of learning with other people like you – people who are dedicated, crazy passionate, experienced and determined to do what it takes to create learning communities where people support each other, learn together.


 





  • What if cultivating engaged learning communities was essential to creating the change needed in our times?






  • How can we increase our capacities to create learning environments that surface diverse perspectives, gifts and skills for the betterment of humanity?




  • How do we hold the tension of leading a group or project to keep moving forward and also creating an inclusive environment where people are invested to take action?




  • What does it take to cultivate learning communities that inspire courage and confidence in learners so that they may fearlessly address the challenges of our times?  




 


In a 3 day action learning intensive, we will explore methodologies, frameworks, practices and patterns for facilitating and hosting learning communities and organizations. We will inquire into what is essential when learners gather together around a shared purpose to address the complex challenges of our times.


 


There are a myriad of complex challenges and opportunities facing humanity today. From the global decline of our natural resources to the growing gap between the rich and the poor, and from systemic barriers in our education, healthcare and financial systems to mass incarceration and the school to prison pipeline. There is an ever increasing need for learningcommunities and human to human connection, peopleworking together to address these challenges and move towards a future that serves the greatest good.


 


What if we transcend our current learning paradigm of downloading information and increase our skills of unearthing diverse perspectives, recognizing and utilizing gifts and capabilities, and collaboratively creating socially impactful learning spaces?


 


Our times are calling for a new approach.


 


“Cooperative learning is one step beyond just learning next to another to learning with, by, and for each other” MW Metzler


 


This event is based on the methodology of the Art of Hosting Conversations that Matter - a powerful suite of facilitative practices and practical frameworks to help groups more effectively work across traditional boundaries. Practices used include Appreciative Inquiry, World Café, Proaction Café, Open Space Technology, and Circle Practice. These practices used together become an effective way to help people lead and help groups move into connection and deep conversation and action. They allow groups of any size to harness collective wisdom and activate self-organizing capacities. To learn more www.artofhosting.org.



It is a participatory and interactive action-learning approach, where you learn by engaging and doing. The intensive is not for spectators. You will be given opportunity to step up your facilitation skills and host others and be in active inquiry around real issues that face our communities. Our intent is that you leave ready to implement what you learn.

The Art of Participatory Leadership Portland / Vancouver

What makes it better? Beyond traps of adversarial agendas to processes of co-learning and participative leadership.

We recognize that leaders are hungry for more effective meetings and practices for working better together amidst times of rapid change and high complexity. Many people are awakening to different ways of being in leadership together, moving beyond the typical traps of adversarial agendas and into processes of co-learning and participatory leadership that lead to wise action and change.

The Pacific NW is rich with social innovators and pioneers of new ways. The complexity can be overwhelming - halting our learning, making us feel stuck, tense, and even perpetuating fragmentation and conflict - with and among those who are also trying to make a better world a practical reality.

Broaden the skill set within your group; Enhance your skills and abilities to see and address difficult questions; Connect with other leaders addressing crucially needed changes and explore how you can work more powerfully together.

Art of Hosting in Education

How do we create a better learning and collaboration culture in our schools, communities and organizations?





Art of Hosting in Education is an international 5 day training program for all education stakeholders who are passionate about the future of education and who want to together explore how to create a better learning and collaboration culture in our schools, communities and organizations.

The purpose of this event is to build and strengthen relationships between all education stakeholders (government, schools, universities, NGOs, businesses, students) and empower their networks to act together using participatory practices.










“Art of Hosting” techniques and practices create space for conversations in which participants exchange knowledge and experience, learn leadership techniques and practices, graphically capture the essential insights and together explore possible next steps to get to the desired outcome.

Through the tools of participatory practice and participatory learning — working in the full group, small-group dialogue and personal reflection — we build the capacity to positively challenge our current thinking and actions.

Participatory Leadership Facilitation and Evaluation

How can we bridge facilitation and evaluation to help us document the value of our work?

On one end of the spectrum there are lively, fun, conversations that leave everyone feeling marvelous but are not documented. On the other end are task-oriented evaluation meetings and data collections that can be cold and distant and not seem to adequately represent the nature of the work that we do. 
In an experiential setting we will focus on facilitation skills, adaptations for evaluation, and indigenous roots and synchronicity with Art of Hosting practices by highlighting the Maori practices of hosting self and others Oruarua Tinana (Maori Tai Chi) - Manaaki (looking after people), Waananga (In-depth learning), and Whanaungatanga (Building and maintaining relationships).

Participatory Leadership Facilitation and Evaluation

How can we bridge facilitation and evaluation to help us document the value of our work?

On one end of the spectrum there are lively, fun, conversations that leave everyone feeling marvelous but are not documented. On the other end are task-oriented evaluation meetings and data collections that can be cold and distant and not seem to adequately represent the nature of the work that we do. 
In an experiential setting we will focus on facilitation skills, adaptations for evaluation, and indigenous roots and synchronicity with Art of Hosting practices by highlighting the Maori practices of hosting self and others Oruarua Tinana (Maori Tai Chi) - Manaaki (looking after people), Waananga (In-depth learning), and Whanaungatanga (Building and maintaining relationships).

The Art of Hosting Societal Innovation

How can we enable social innovators to unleash the power of collaboration towards stronger, more meaningful outcomes? How do we build an impact ecosystem?

We invite social entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, professionals, decision-makers and teams, managers within municipalities, NGO and development workers, community leaders and program managers, corporate innovators and consultants, convenors of cross-sector dialogues to join us to share in a decade of Art of Hosting practice as well as Impact Hub’s experience facilitating an impact ecosystem of entrepreneurs over the past 7 years. We know the impact that comes from combining a strong drive for change in society with skilled process design and hosting skills. We believe positive  change comes from engaged citizens and collaborative action. We have witnessed how systemic change needs cross-sector perspectives, and how many more of us need to be able to host social and systemic change to transform our systems and structures.  By learning to be a ‘host‘ of groups and spaces from a level of consciousness where one enables people to be as authentic as possible, one is hosting innovation.

Deepening Your Hosting Practice Through Worldview Intelligence

What if there was a new way into, and through, our most challenging conversations? What if there was a simple guide to learning how?

 

Each of us has a worldview. It impacts how we see and interact with the world, events, situations and other people and thus our hosting practice.  Our Worldviews influence our communication, decision-making and workplace cultures.  Most of this happens unconsciously.  Worldview awareness helps us explore individual and collective assumptions, beliefs and value systems with curiosity and non-judgment. This opens the potential for more comprehensive approaches and solutions to emerge on a range of issues and opportunities, including those that might be mildly oppositional to completely divisive to seemingly unsolvable. This rapidly evolving body of work generates a deeper understanding of worldview, how worldviews are developed and why understanding them and growing the skill to work with them creates a fundamentally different environment for some of today's most challenging conversations. 


As a hosting practice, Worldview Intelligence equips individuals, organizations and communities with the skills and ability to work with and hold different and multiple worldviews simultaneously.  This includes: 






  • Awareness of your own worldview and learning about, acknowledging and appreciating other perspectives or worldviews in conversations that matter

  • Navigation of encounters with differing perspectives to find new ways forward on matters of shared interest or concern or to resolve conflict 

  • Cultural agility in a range of hosting settings that allows the advancement many interests at the same time

  • Practices that raise awareness of beliefs and assumptions we each hold

  • A framework or guide for ongoing individual and collective worldview exploration, more creative problem solving


 

Experiencing and understanding the transformative power of worldview awareness often leads to more creative solutions to the human dynamics challenges we routinely encounter in all kinds of places.It offers a structure approach to deepening your hosting skills.


These two days will focus on worldview as a personal hosting practice and the patterns and practices of organizational worldview that allow us to work differently in our organizations.

Learning Village Sveaborg 27.3 - 2.4.2015

Living our Future – Exploring the ways in which we want to work and live together


Living our Future


Welcome to the first Learning Village in Finland. The purpose of the Learning Village is to come together, share and reflect on your questions, inspire each other, bridge people and projects, work together, and strengthen our relationships through our conversations and stories.

Since this is also a meeting of practitioners using participatory tools,  we can exchange experiences and learn from our practices. Methods will not be taught; but there will be opportunities to practice and methods will be introduced when used (e.g. Open Space).

We will live and work on the historical fortress island of Sveaborg in Helsinki. Sveaborg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in maritime environment and surrounded by nature and layers of history. We will here explore questions, ideas and concepts we wish to be part of our future world: what do we want to leave behind, what are the key aspects we want to take care of on a deeper level? You are welcome to invite friends and colleagues who may be interested..



Three stages of the Learning Village week


2014-10-17 13.42.40-1Design and Settle (Friday 27 – Saturday 28 March) – Settling down in Sveaborg and living it’s historical and natural beauty in the Helsinki archipelago. You are welcome to prepare the premises and spirit of the learning village, hang around with others or be helpful in any other way. If you wish to take part in the designing and hosting, please contact anyone in the calling team. The info can be found at the section Hosting.

DSCN7403LEARNING VILLAGE (Saturday 28 – Tuesday 31 March) – Exploring the ways in which we want to work and live together. We are living our future by exploring and listening to where we are and where we want to go. We are finding wise ways forward and witnessing each other into our individual and collective potential. We will use circle and Open Space and other participatory methods that the villagers are inspired to use together.

sveaborg_wallsPost learning village reflection time (Tuesday 31 March – Thursday 2 April) – The premises and accommodation are available for slow check-outs. There is time to create self-organized activities, spontaneous post-workshops, space for reflection and time to explore Sveaborg and Helsinki in good company or just to hang around and do nothing.

AoH Participant Experiences on Worldview



“Participants in AoH trainings have stated that the Worldview teach has generated such a reflective space that they are invited into deeper sharing and understanding about worldview(s), where it comes from, what their own worldview is and curiosity about others’ worldviews. It has created an understanding of how to give voice and visibility to multiple worldviews in any hosted gathering. It creates openings for successfully leading different, more inclusive conversations on issues and challenges that routinely show up in organizations, communities and social systems.”

17 April - 20 April 2015, Athens, Greece

Art of Participatory Leadership Athens

As citizens, leaders, and professionals, what are the ways of working that will allow us to collaboratively address the challenges in our cities, communities, organisations and society?

Greece’s Democracy is in the hot seat, as are many of our local and global systems, governments, communities and institutions.
Since 2010, Greece has been the center of attention worldwide for several reasons: economic crisis, austerity, citizen movements, social innovators, corruption, the future of Eurozone and more. With the results of the recent elections, Greece once again draws attention to whether the new government will bring hope and change or if the economic situation will get worse. It is a question that reflects not only the future of Greece but also the future of Europe.
Underneath this is a question about what we mean by “democratia” - the power of citizens to collectively define and create their lives and steward the commons with the interest of future generations in mind. We believe that the main differentiator that will make this new “era” successful is how citizens are engaged in new forms of governance, forms that are based on participation, dialogue, self-organizing, diversity and true consultation.
We invite you to this 4-day training to explore together

Building Collaborative Capacity Through Appreciative Inquiry

How can we as hosts, leaders, or change agents support communities to reclaim the joy of collaborating with other groups and individuals? How to build enough trust to make collaboration across differences possible? How can we connect together around w

This three-day collaborative event is designed as a method/skills training (Appreciative Inquiry) applied to the strategic issue of building confidence and capacity for collaboration in communities with diverse interests and goals.


The initiative for this training arose within the Slovenian Art of Hosting community, who perceive the growing need, and longing, for collaboration with others to address complex challenges – but also hesitancy, fear, and the longing for more capacity to boldly start and sustain collaborations that really nourish us all. The issue is especially relevant in many contexts in Central, Southern and Eastern Europe; though definitely not limited to this area, so we invite anyone who feels called to join in the exploration 🙂:


What will I get out of this training?



§  Experience an appreciative approach to complex strategic issues, and explore its potential compared to traditional problem-solving methodologies


§  Learn about the Appreciative Inquiry methodology and approach


§  Insights and ideas how to foster collaborations and partnerships in a sustainable way


§  Inspiration, connection and fun



How


The working language of the training will be English. Within small groups, participants may choose another language that they all share.
The training will be highly dynamic, experiential and interactive. It is not an event for spectators: everyone is invited to contribute their own issues, challenges, existing and emerging projects, provocative questions, ideas and wisdom.


When and where



17 – 19 April 2015 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), Hotel Lev, Vosnjakova 1, Ljubljana, Slovenia, each day from 9.00 to 18.00.


The Lev Hotel**** is centrally located in Ljubljana, offering special rates to the training participants (50 EUR per person for double occupancy, 65 EUR for a single room; breakfast included). Participants are asked to book their accommodation directly through the hotel (discount code to be stated: Taisa).
In the spirit of fostering collaborations, some Slovenian participants are happy to accommodate colleagues from abroad in their homes; please share requests and offer at this home-sharing link.


How much


§  350 EUR individuals and not-for-profit organizations (NGOs, public sector)


§  450 EUR corporate fee


The participation fee covers the participation at the training, course materials, lunches during the three days, and refreshments during the breaks.

Coming soon! The theme is what education and learning is needed now for multi stakeholders to take actions in society.

Hi, all those who find this entry.

My name is Yuri from Japan.  I'm excited to announce the first Art of Hosting training in Japanese in Japan!

Since the Art of Hosting Fukushima 2014, having Toke and Monica as stewards, Art of Hosting Japan community have worked together in several conferences to build up our capacity and contribute to society. Now is the time we will meet up a new challenge to work to holding the training in Japanese so that more people would be able to learn together to dance in chaordic path.

All the program is going to run in Japanese.
It would be super great if you'd spread this call to your friends who speak Japanese  and hold the peaceful space for us.  Recently we met Marietta from Slovakia in Japan and we were very inspired enough to hold the big hosting team. Any inspiration and input would be warmly welcomed!

By the way, Mami is going to be an apprentice in Art of Hosting Karlskrona 2015 as well. Find her and give her your knowledge and wisdom if you meet her in Europe, so that we'll all learn  from the global context as well!

Very much enjoying with friends in AoH Japan community now and looking forward to practicing together with them and new members at Dojo.

Warmly,

Yurie Makihara, 20, Jan, 2015.

Art of Hosting: Hosting Conversations/Embodying Change

How do we host conversations and embody change?

You’re Invited…


to a three-day intensive to explore participatory practices and hosting essential conversations that lead to shifts at all levels - from the grassroots to senior leadership.


Hosting Conversations


In this training, you will learn about specific methodologies for engaging yourself and others in strategic conversations; conversations aimed at helping us take smart action together.  Along with core methodologies, you will  learn mental models and strategies for leading change work and dive deep into your  leadership practices. Each Art of Hosting is a reflection of new understanding and learning about how to make change in ourselves and the systems we care about. After 10 years of working to change our own civic dialogue here in Columbus, Ohio, we have seen the systems in our community shift toward participation at all levels. Our nonprofit sector, academic institutions, private organizations, and all levels of government are engaged in a new way of leading change - together.


Emphasizing the need for skills in working collectively balanced with the deep personal work needed to lead transformative change, we’ll spend our time in conversation about what we know and what we still have to learn about making meaningful change in ourselves, our organizations, and our communities.


Embodying Change


This particular Art of Hosting will offer all the richness of a typical Art of Hosting as well as involve an embodiment component.  With local  Social Presencing Theatre practitioner, Heidi Madsen, we will integrate different ways of knowing and listening into our conversational work.


 

This is an AoH plus!  We’ll learn about hosting conversation and we’ll use embodiment practices to have fun and learn the

Leading strategic conversations - The Art of Participatory Leadership for corporate business and public administration

Learn how to use your conversation effectively - to ignite engagement and lead to action for sustainable results!

This is the 2nd time we are organizing AOPL training in Croatia focused on needs of corporate business and public administration - last one in November 2014 was a big success as corporate & public sector participants have connected to each other fast in this open training through common business issues and felt totally safe to learn and explore their situations, projects, issues of concern and support each other in designing for wiser actions! It was amazing to see people from big, successful companies (some even competitors) to learn and practice together - and grow in leadership competences which they have brought back to their working context for more meaningfulness, engagement and more happier work for their colleagues and partners (this is what they shared at recent follow up hosted  for local group in Zagreb).

Interest in corporate world and public sector is rising again and our commitment to continue to meet this need is stronger than ever!

Join us in beautiful Poreč at the coast of Croatia and get your self inspired by new ideas, people, methods, places and moods!

l'Art d'accueillir des conversations et des actions qui transforment

Comment éveiller le pouvoir d’agir ensemble, dans mon propre écosystème, pour aller vers le futur que nous voulons ?

Nous sommes dirigeant, leader, élu, consultant, facilitateur, artiste, gestionnaire d'association, acteur social ou territorial… et nous nous posons ces questions :
1. Quelle est la posture de leadership qui peut inviter le meilleur de nous-mêmes, des autres, des organisations ?
2. Comment créer un espace d’échange sensible qui accueille notre authenticité et tire parti de nos différences pour trouver les vraies solutions innovantes ?
3. Selon quel mode de fonctionnement collectif les groupes et organisations dans lesquels j’interviens peuvent devenir des lieux où chacun apprend de tous et libère son énergie créative ?
La communauté internationale de l’Art of Hosting cultive et partage en permanence un riche savoir-faire pour « irriguer les conversations » avec le flot de l’intelligence collective et déboucher sur l’action pertinente. Ses pratiques de facilitation, que vous pourrez découvrir activement durant ces trois journées, commencent à se diffuser : Forum Ouvert, World Café, Pro-action Café, Cercles de dialogue, Démarche Appréciative, et bien d’autres…

Art of Participatory Leadership

How will we together practice more learning and even better collaboration for our communities, businesses and organisations?


  • How can we exercise leadership in a way that brings our the best in ourselves, other people and organisations in service of us all?

  • How can we grow the capacity to meet, respect and work with each other to gain the gifts diversity offers us?

  • How can organisations become places of learning, individual and collective development and societal purpose?


Participatory Leadership brings forward knowledge and drive that may be hidden in your teams and community, and galvanizes alignment.  


Participatory Leadership is a structured process including tools, methods, design-thinking and a systems approach to galvanizing group and organisational dynamics. While focussed on groups, it scales from the individual to teams, to whole organizations and communities. Built on the core values of respect, partnership, collaboration and accountability, the approach has been used to facilitate deep conversations with small groups, to groups of hundreds of people at a time, and address complex situations in a way that delivers alignment and actionable outcomes.


When you work in a group in which people participate deeply, you feel the energy grow and possibilities build. Harnessing the knowledge, intelligence and energy of a group helps everyone create and share understanding, and take decisions you can trust. Being able to work in a way that ensures people contribute their diverse knowledge and skills to meeting a common purpose is the crowning skill you need to prosper, for your teams to be more agile, creative and purposeful. This workshop offers you tools, methods and approaches to break through stress and resistance, and improve people’s well-being and engagement.

25 June - 27 June 2015, Nottingham , United Kingdom

Art of Hosting Nottingham UK

What are the seeds of social change in Nottingham and how might our collective energies come together in a common direction ?

The purpose of this training is to learn and explore ways of hosting participative conversations and meeting spaces so we can understand what is needed and how to move forward in action. Meetings that truly bring people together and build relationships across the city mean that our work will have more impact. We would like to explore how to break down the barriers between different sectors and find new perspectives to the current ideology of 'contracting and commissioning’ and being more 'business-like' about community development and social change.

Hosted by:David Jones: Simone Millar: Larna Campbell: Niamh Carey: Sarah Whitely: Linda Mitchell

Registration details

All on the google doc : We would like to make this training as accessible as we can so that everyone can attend and money is not a barrier. However, we do have to cover our costs so we are asking that you pay what you possibly can (and a little bit more if you can).

Art of Participatory Leadership Training

Taking this Troubled Beauty Forward - Building Capacity for Participatory Leadership

an invitation to explore & practice
the art of participatory leadership


 
In invitation we would like to offer a poem from one of our calling team that speaks to the heart of our call to practice in Northern Ireland.


[ t h e ] n o r t h [ e r n ] [ o f ] i r e l a n d
by Pádraig Ó Tuama


It is both a dignity and
a difficulty
to live between these
names,

perceiving politics
in the syntax of
the state.

And at the end of the day,
the reality is
that whether we
change
or whether we stay
the same

these questions will
remain.

Who are we
to be
with one
another?

and

How are we
to be
with one
another?

and

What to do
with all those memories
of all those funerals?

and

What about those present
whose past was blasted
far beyond their
future?

I wake.
You wake.
She wakes.
He wakes.
They wake.

We Wake
and take
this troubled beauty forward.

----

It seems that wherever we look, the old systems are shaking and power structures are tired.  People are looking for spaces to come into meaningful conversation together and to take responsibility to create the future they want.

We are saturated with images of how
societies, home and abroad, are being polarized to the extremes and things are falling apart, but what will help them come together? What are the capacities all of us can practice to help a new future arise?

Perhaps you’ve also been asking yourself these questions:

How can we invite others and ourselves into a civic democracy 2.0, and work in ways that create a sense of hope and engagement?

How can we create spaces for people to come together in meaningful conversation that helps us shape and take wiser action together?

What are the capacities we can practice together that will create a root system for a different future?

While this training does carry an intention to build regional capacity in Participatory Leadership, we invite practitioners from around the world to join us and to connect with other practitioners, leaders and social innovators seeking to build their leadership capacity and serve their community. We look forward to welcoming you, your questions, your projects and your contributions.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us via the website.

The Art of Participatory Leadership

Creating the future we all want to live in - building capacity for real dialogue and collaboration across civil society, private and public sectors

an invitation to explore & practice the art of participatory leadership

Recent events around the world and in our own society are putting the focus ever more strongly on our need to learn how to work well with differences and complexity. We are over-saturated with images of how things are falling apart, but what will help them come together? How can we manage the dance we are in between the individual -- all of us wanting to find our own purpose and unique expression -- and the collective -- the ways we are living and working together that create the society we are part of?

Perhaps you’ve also been asking yourself these questions:


  • How can we create spaces for people to come together in conversation and action that serves

  • How do we work in ways where everyone makes a contribution and everyone is valued?

  • How can we inspire each other to take the next steps in our own journey of purpose?

Art of Participatory Leadership

How do we integrate personal and organisational differences to bridge bounderies and co-create positive change in our world?


How do we move from taking the initiative to truly building resilient coalitions for change?


Join us for a 3-day intensive journey into the Art of Participatory Leadership, to experience and practice simple yet very powerful methods for hosting meaningful conversations and building resilient organisations and communities for profound change.


We bring together business leaders, change agents, community workers, social entrepeneurs, policy makers: people who are passionate about their work, their business and their community and who like to change things for the better.


We invite people who are interested in creating bottom up innovation and co-creating new solutions and coalitions. Our challenge today is how do we move from the promising beginnings of collaboration to truly sustainable change in which all stakeholders contribute and gain? Participants explore this by sharing their own projects and experiences and practicing new ways of participation and collaboration. In this way participants connect their daily practice to the training and explore what they can do to bring their project one step ahead. After the training participants can attend and initiate workshops and gatherings to deepen their learning and practice as part of the community of practitioners, coached and supported by the hosting team.




From the practice of the Art of Hosting we will teach you a participatory approach to bring together and involve groups to bring about change. A leadership practice combining the personal with the larger system, working with personal insights, dialogue, facilitation and co-creating new solutions for complex social issues. A combination of theory, safe group practice and working on a case from your own daily practice.


The training will be in Dutch.

Participative Leadership in Faith Communities

What changes in the world could we create by bringing more participative leadership to faith communities?

Event Website

Many of us see our work as transformation.
Our big dreams compel us to see and act on what others may not see. Many of us are required to transform both "what" we are doing and "how" we are doing it together -- how we meet and join in interfaith action. Transformation requires both deep spiritual practice and effective meeting and community engagement approaches to move forward social change agendas. The Art of Participatory Leadership is all about that.

Many of us wonder how to improve capacity to transform.

Ourselves. Our committees. Our congregations. Amidst rapid change and high complexity. Faith communities of all kinds are developing these practices. Together, we are awakening to different ways of being in leadership together, moving beyond the typical traps of adversarial agendas and into process of co-learning and co-evolution that lead to wise action and change. We're seeking consultative processes and engagement strategies that bring out the best in collaborative communities.

Realising our Wealth - Accessing our Wisdom

What are the new ways of engagement, that - building on the best of the past - could actually give birth to the new? 

To realise is both to become fully aware of something, and also to give physical form to something.

It is our experience that as we begin to understand the untapped potential of our collective wisdom, we can begin to realise - to give form to - many more possibilities than when we seek to do it all on our own.

In this training, we offer the methods, tools, and practices that can enable the capacity for bringing people together to co-create the innovations and solutions needed at this time. We will offer foundational ideas, frameworks, methodologies & stories. We will learn by observation, experience and practice, using interactive processes to build a safe and inspiring learning environment. There will be opportunities to apply relevant tools and emerging insights to your own projects-in-progress, as well as develop and continue a new practice that will last well beyond this training.

Plonger aux sources d’inspiration par la puissance tranquille du «dialogue»

Comment faciliter l’évolution de nos échanges vers des conversations plus puissantes, plus fécondes, qui mobilisent toute la sagesse et la puissance collectives, dans un cadre simple et adaptable à toute situation?

La puissance du cercle
Le cercle de dialogue est, dans presque toutes les cultures, un savoir ancestral hérité des origines, que nous sommes en train de réapprendre.
Souvent limité à l’ouverture et la clôture de réunions, la puissance du cercle de dialogue va bien au delà.
C’est un espace d’émergence qui permet de dépasser les clivages et freins habituels dans les échanges, par une « parole qui traverse » le connu. Dans l’espace de présence et de communication profonde qu’il établit entre participants, un sens collectif peut alors se révéler, produire du neuf et indiquer le chemin juste
Le cercle de dialogue est à ce titre une pratique fondamentale qui s’avère nécessaire pour enrichir et approfondir toute autre approche collaborative.

Cet atelier vous donnera des clefs pour :
• Approfondir la qualité des échanges dans tous les processus d’intelligence collective
• Guider un groupe gracieusement depuis la surface vers des dialogues inspirants
• Favoriser l’émergence du pouvoir d’agir ensemble dans toute situation de groupe

The Art of Participatory Leadership: Hosting Conversations that Matter

What else would be possible if we were to focus on reinventing meetings so they are inclusive, productive and focus on wise outcomes and impact?

This 2-day Art of Hosting practicum introduces a way of working together that invites collective wisdom and innovation and supports groups to move seamlessly from thinking together to implementation and prototyping. Art of Hosting is a proven practice of utilizing participatory processes ~~ i.e., Circle, World Cafe, Open Space, Theory U and Appreciative Inquiry ~~ in a way that engages and activates the passion, wisdom and possibility in groups of people with diverse wisdom, skills and social locations.

The Collaboration Learning Lab is intended as a learning, prototyping and scaling up space where over the course of a period of time we can exchange existing knowledge, yet at the same time experiment and prototype new innovative practices and tools to create greater impact for Egypt.  

 

To begin the journey, we invite you to a 4-day learning and innovation training - the Art of Hosting Collaboration where we will be experiencing the Art of Hosting pattern and practice, a collaboration methodology that can be applied to many different contexts. During this time, we will train and learn participatory leadership methodologies and mental models as a way to work in collaboration, share our knowledge and practices  create new prototypes of collaboration and plan the journey ahead for the Collaboration Learning Lab. We will also focus on already existing examples here in Egypt. We will explore new forms of building purposeful collaborations, while putting the people and their projects, in the center of the conversations.  We will scale up what we learn so we can engage stakeholders in larger-scale and multi year actions for social impact.

Worldview Intelligence for Deepening Hosting Practice

What if there are new ways into, and through, today’s most challenging conversations? What if there was a simple guide to learning how?

As a leadership practice, Worldview Intelligence equips individualsorganizations. communities and social systems with the skills and ability to work with and hold different and multiple worldviews simultaneously.

The willingness to bring compassion, curiosity and non-judgment to understanding worldview and how it impacts our lives and the lives of people we interact with is a personal leadership practice. 

Organizational Worldview Intelligence is essential when there are differences of opinions, beliefs or value systems or if your role requires you to work with distinctly different worldviews in client interactions, internally with staff or in policy development.

When the stakes are high, views on issues that matter often become polarized. Individuals and groups revert to research and data to “prove” their point of view, becoming more entrenched in their position and less open to disconfirming data. Finding points of common interest becomes less likely. When data arguments do not work, what’s next?


Finding points of connection through other means. Worldview Intelligence applied to Social Systems offers more comprehensive approaches to finding ways forward.

Hosted by:Kathy Jourdain Jerry Nagel Stephen Duns Linette Harriott
