April 3-5, 2018 -- Pacific Lutheran University -- Tacoma, WA
We all want to work better together. Yes, in rapid change. Yes, in high complexity.
This year's Art of Hosting Meaningful and Strategic Conversations is a 3-day learning experience where we will practice a set of simple yet powerful approaches for designing and hosting powerful conversations and meetings that change how we change. Building on a tradition of regional trainings, these approaches are an effective way of harnessing the collective wisdom and self-organizing capacity of groups. These approaches help those of us who are already giving our energy and lending our resources to what matters most to us in both work and life.
How Does The Art of Hosting Meaningful & Strategic Conversations Help You?
Better decision-making, more efficient and effective capacity building, and greater ability to quickly respond to opportunity, challenge and change. We gain confidence and skill in guiding meetings to more desirable and supported outcomes.
Who's In From the Region?
Regionally, in the US Pacific Northwest and Cascadia Bioregion, we are bringing together leaders from community, government, and business, social entrepreneurs, next generation leaders from many dedicated networks and efforts – building capacity in our communities and organizations to address the challenges of these times. See Partners for a list of organizations committed to bringing this training to their networks and region.
What Will I Learn?
Lots. We work with collaborative methods, including The Circle Way, World Café, Open Space Technology, ProAction Café, storytelling and more. You will learn about mental models that underlay methods to more deeply enhance not only what you know, but what you will create as you grow your leadership.
