Leading Transformative and Collaborative Meetings
In today's world we live with the paradox that meetings are the most important tool for working together and yet they can be the most unproductive and expensive strategy we use. Instead of "death by meeting", we can create a structure that encourages candor, courage and straightforward discussions that are inspiring, motivational and stirring. Imagine meetings that welcome diverse opinions, promote mutual understanding, discover inclusive solutions and shared responsibility. Using circle process encourages genuine contribution, creativity, inclusion and co-creation of a future in which there is more possibility than limitation, resulting in better outcomes in our work. We develop the capacity to work with complexity, conflict, hurt and trauma.
You Are Invited
We welcome Art of Hosting practitioners as well as those who are curious about participatory leadership. This workshop is for leaders, managers, supervisors, project leaders, community groups, youth workers, educators, church leader, board members, consultants, and those working in fields such as health care, government, education, the social sector, organizations, healing and trauma work, parent groups, restorative justice and social innovation.
