About the Training

This three-day training explores Participatory Leadership through practising the Art of Hosting and Harvesting conversations that matter. We will work with, demonstrate, practice and explore how participatory methodologies can be used as a foundation for leadership and learning in groups, teams, communities and organizations.

The Art of Hosting is more than a training program. It is a response to a world that is becoming increasingly complex and fragmented, where solutions and innovations lie not in one leader or one viewpoint, but in the bigger picture of collective intelligence.

The training offers:

  • Hosting and harvesting conversations as a core leadership and learning practice.
  • Participatory and systemic approaches, methods and tools as Circle, World Cafe, Appreciative Inquiry and Open Space.
  • Working with questions relevant to your specific context.
  • An invitation to a network supporting you in your practice.

Who should come?

Leaders, managers, facilitators, trainers, teachers, consultants, social innovators, entrepreneurs, community and youth workers – people who are interested in arranging their work, their teams and their organizations in more participatory and meaningful ways.

The Art of Hosting is based on bringing stakeholders together in conversation in order to find solutions for the common good. When human beings are invited to work together on what truly matters to them, when self-organizing space is opened, people will take ownership and responsibility for moving their issues and ideas into wiser actions and innovative solutions that last.
