Renovating Leadership for Flourishing Teams

May 9 @ 4:00 pm May 11 @ 2:00 pm

A practical and embodied experience for leaders and teams

  As leaders, and despite our best endeavours, we recognise that it’s sometimes difficult to pull yourself out of our tried and true patterns to experience something we know is possible, but don’t quite know how to do…yet. Traditional training programmes invite us to develop our capabilities, but often ways that make it unclear how to apply these new capabilities to our work. We believe that the workplace offers us all of the ‘raw material’ we need to develop not only our capacity and skills as leaders but our overall Capacity (with capital C) as leaders. For three days, we invite you (and up to 4 team members) to experience a ‘tasting platter’ of embodied collective leadership experiences designed for you to step in, be open, courageous and learn through doing.

Is this you?

  • Visionary leaders who have a desire and agency to make change happen
  • You recognise this work is best enacted with others through the power of peer learning
  • You have tried various leadership, change and transformation programs but have struggled to apply what you’ve learnt in your work environments
  • You sense there is another way to approach collective leadership, but need help knowing where and how to start.
  • Leaders who have asked and thought deeply, “What would it look like for my organization to thrive?”

In this workshop, you will be invited to…

  • .. for yourself and in community, not just what is working, but the deeper challenges and shadows around what is not working
  • See… raise your awareness of what is going on in your organization, within your team and within yourself
  • Embody… sense into situations and feelings that are largely unaddressed in organizations and how this shows up in our own bodies e.g. failure, grief, joy and celebration
  • See & feel… hold tension around as well as appreciate the complexities of the situations we are facing
  • Learn… how to sense into deeper places of knowing beyond the intellectual reasoning areas that we often rely on
  • Create, envision, practice and play… collaborate with your team members to design, modify and implement practices that give you what you need.

You will leave with…

  • A greater sense and understanding of the water you are swimming in… what is going on for you, your teams as well as your organization
  • A deeper appreciation of the sense of the time, attention and presence this work requires
  • Tools and practices, along with a lived experience of the application of these tools and practices in practical, real-life scenarios
  • A stronger sense of how the principles connect to practices
