Event Description


How do we build our capacity to navigate together with ease ​for a thriving future?

In a time when we are living and holding polarities across race, age, culture, religions and beliefs, there is a need to build our capacity for navigating our way together. We can find our way through our ability to hold paradox - it's not an "either or" but a "both and" that will help us find our way.


In this 3-day "Art of Hosting Conversations that Matter" training, sometimes called "participatory leadership", you'll learn, lead and practice models, methodologies, and skills designed to enliven the potential of any engagement, whether in a team or across sectors. You'll have the opportunity to lead and practice “hosting conversations” using dialogue-based methodologies that are designed for working with complex challenges. These methods help to access the collective intelligence of a group so that new solutions can be discovered in truly collaborative ways. This practice  recognizes strategic dialogue as a driver for collaboration, development, and change.


Who can participate? Anyone who wants to develop their capacity to hold the paradox of our times through collaboration and participation skills - public service professionals,  entrepreneurs, social innovators, NGOs, leaders in business, educators - anyone seeking new ways of coming together in service to something larger than ourselves.
