Art of Hosting

and Harvesting Conversations That Matter

Art of Hosting Trainings

Here is a listing of upcoming Art of Hosting trainings worldwide – mostly 3-day events where you are immersed in and learn about the basics of Art of Hosting. Some of these trainings have a specific focus on top of the general training, mostly mentioned in the calling question.

There might be other events mentioned in this list, but they will all have entry-level quality (so no previous experience required) and will rely heavily on the Art of Hosting DNA for its design.

The Art of Collaborative Leadership

How do we go beyond "outreach" to engagement while building leadership capacity?

This immersive weekend workshop will allow you to experience and practice a set of simple, yet powerful, processes for building community, facilitating powerful conversations, building strong partnerships, and manifesting change in line with your values. Come explore how to unleash our collective genius and build adaptive and leader-full communities.

It’s more important than ever to pay attention to ~how~ we work together, not just ~what~ we are trying to do together.

Design and convene conversations that matter.  Go beyond “outreach” to engagement and participation.  Shift from “facilitation” to hosting & harvesting results while building skills and leadership capacity.

The Resilience Hub is pleased to be returning to the beautiful Ferry Beach Association to offer the next iteration of participatory design and capacity-building training:  The Art of Collaborative Leadership – A Weekend Workshop in November of 2017.

Why Art of Hosting?

• Connect with other leaders of the sustainability and resilience movements and explore how we can work more powerfully together.

• Broaden the skill-set 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, develop confidence, face challenges that don’t have easy solutions, use wise process planning architectures for small and large scale initiatives, and host strategic conversations over time.

• Imagine and plan for how we can use these practices in our individual and collective work in the months and years ahead.

Grow your facilitation and hosting practice and try something new!
