Professional Programme on Facilitation and Participatory Leadership – Art of Hosting

Why are you interested in learning more about participatory leadership? What are you particularly interested in seeking to learn more about in the art of participatory leadership? Where will you apply what you have learned afterwards in life and work?

The Alpbach Professional Programme on Facilitation and Participatory Leadership is a 3-day training course designed to teach simple yet powerful processes required for building a community, activating collective intelligence and fostering individual and collaborative leadership practices.

At the core of the training lies questions on how we can meet the complex challenges of today’s society and what are the practices and ways of working that can help us unlock potentials inherent in organisations in this age of diversity.

Based on “Art of Hosting” methodology, this training aims to give a dynamic and effective introduction to methods of working in a participatory and collective manner in order to tackle complex systems and challenges on local, regional, national levels and beyond.

The practice of participatory leadership recognises strategic dialogue and conversations as drivers for development and change. It can be used to good effect in areas such as:


  • Strategy-making
