For many of us, once past the initial woaw of discovering participatory leadership, there comes a time when we despair to make it work - because we soon find out that the rest of the world hasn't caught up with us yet.
Keeping the flame alive is not an easy task, and yet we need to do it because it is the only way forward.
Soon or later, our efforts will pay - we just need to hang on and make sure we're still around when they do.
Here are some… Continue

At the recent stewards gathering I hosted an open space session with this title: 'What's possible beyond the 3 day training?'. I called this session because so often after AoH trainings participants come up to me and say how inspired they are but that they aren't sure how to continue/integrate what they learned. Some ask what to do if they wanted to start making this their work, where could they learn more.
So I was curious to find out form colleagues how they deal with this and what… Continue

A young electrician called Scott came to remedy a fault in the electrics of my kitchen.
After two solid hours of ‘trouble shooting' – tracking wiring from source to service – re-wiring tired lines, untangling confused energy pathways, exploring roof spaces to reveal invisible circuitry of this particular energy system to find the point of… Continue

When sensing is understood … feelings are tempered … practicalities tended … intention clear … and trust strong … so that we finally are ready to say yes to our YES and step off the cliff… what do we do when unforeseen 'emergent' events create the possibility and even reality that the 'movement' may be stopped in its… Continue

Have you wondered what makes the difference between a ho-hum conference and one that leaves you inspired and energised? It can be tough choosing the right events to attend, and you’re always risking your time and your cash. I’ve been particularly lucky with my experiences at the conferences of The Applied Improvisation Network (AIN) and the SOLWorld events, both of which have been flourishing for more than a decade.
Here are 12 signs that a conference cares about its… Continue

I don’t know if the woman who wrote this article is part of Art of Hosting. But I found this article from Zocalo Public Square hilarious. What a brilliant way of using a current event to spread awareness of good group process! It’s not about AoH per se. But she does suggest the cardinals start by building relationships and ask new, provocative questions. She has them tell stories and think together in world café. My favorite line is how… Continue
