Art of Hosting - New leadership for new times

Participative leadership: how to do that each day?

Our traditional organisational forms and culture are no longer enough – not in businesses, not in civil society, not in government, and certainly not where any kind of innovation is needed! This raises some burning questions:

How do I breathe life into a start-up or new network?
How do I overcome the inertia of old, ingrained structures and habits?
How can I reinvent myself – how can we reinvent ourselves – as we go, on the job?

While there are no easy answers to these questions, principles and daily practices for participatory leadership do exist, that really allow us to have a different kind of conversation and take action in a different way. These are principles and practices that we can learn and that can support us in our evolution.

The Art of Hosting Conversations that Matter – the focus of these 3 days of learning together – is an approach which scales leadership out from the individual to the whole system. You will discover innovative personal practices, dialogue formats, ways of hosting/facilitating teams, groups and networks, and co-creation of innovation for tackling the complex challenges facing us.

The ‘art’ in the Art of Hosting consists in eliciting and harnessing the collective intelligence of any group of people – a community, a network, an organisation or business – with a view to finding better, more sustainable solutions to complex challenges.

Hosted by:Ria Baeck, An Baert, Ivo Bols, Johan Decoster, Nora Ganescu, Samantha Slade, Helen Titchen Beeth, Damien Versele, Katrien Wyns
