The Art of Participatory Leadership is an intensive 3-day event where you will experience and practice a set of simple yet powerful processes for building community, facilitating powerful conversations, building strong partnerships and leading change. Come explore how to unleash our collective genius and build adaptive and leader-full communities.
We invite those engaged and committed to the many aspects of resilience to come together from Transition Towns, sustainability initiatives, local economy, permaculture communities, sustainable business, local food, healthy families, and more.
Our hope is to create powerful ways to learn together, build effective teams and partnerships that help us work better in our own communities, as well as invite others to build resilient communities. There’s an incredible amount of work going on in many different networks. We are thrilled to bring these powerful networks together..
Our intention is to work together to build capacity for the next evolution of work in the North Bay, San Francisco Bay Area, and Northern California. We also invite passionate friends from other areas who want to learn with us and create transformative change.
Rooted in the Four Fold practice of the Art of Hosting, this event teaches a participative approach for leading, convening, and engaging groups. The practice begins with being present and hosting one’s self, from there we participate in learning conversations, hosting and convening conversations, and co-creating (initiatives, change, teams, etc).
Why Art of Hosting?
Connect with other leaders of the sustainability and resilience movements and explore how we can work more powerfully together.
Broaden the skillset within your group, work more effectively and enjoyably together, engage teams, organizations, and community stakeholders in meaningful conversations that promote resilience, belonging, innovation, and contribution.
Enhance our skills and abilities to work with complexity, develop chaordic confidence, face challenges that don’t have solutions, use wise process planning architectures for small and large scale initiatives, and host strategic conversations over time.
Imagine and plan for how we can use these practices in our individual and collective work in the months and years ahead. Grow your hosting practice and try something new!
We hope you will join us.
