What's happening...


I am born in Vienna and grew up there. Though I have since lived in many other places (Paraguay, Leeds, London, Karskrona, Bangalore, and Chennai), I have recently decided to return to split my year between Vienna and India. My goal is to offer strategic principled sustainability thinking using Art of Hosting techniques to organisations, particularly in the healthcare and education sector. You are welcome to view my LinkedIn profile for more info.

AoH India

I have spent 5 months in Tamil Nadu and am planning to return there when opportunities present themselves.  

I'm part of the group of practitioners who are preparing the field for AoH in India. Join the AoH India group and see what we are up to. It's exciting and we feel the timing is perfect :)

AoH Health Care

In summer of 2012 I was privileged to co-hosted the visionary Healthcare Leadership Summer School (HLSS) in the Netherlands. It was an incredible experience which inspired me to look deeper into heathcare and the transformations that are possible and indeed necessary. 

My last formal trainings

  • AoHarvesting, Kalundbørg, Denmark (March 2013)
  • AoH training, Karlskrona, Sweden (March 2013)
  • ALIA, Authentic Leadership in Action, Netherlands 2012 (March 2012)
  • AoH training, Karlskrona, Sweden (March 2012)

Welcome to the Art of Hosting community, Mischa! Please post a photo when you can so we can really "see" you here. Then join in with all the conversations. You'll find plenty of resources here, too, to help you deepen your practice. And the more you add to your profile, the more the community can learn from you and share with you.   And I'm looking forward to seeing what unfolds in India!
