Leadership for the future
Facilitator: Jenny Andersson
Event time: Wed 15th Sep 2021 at 3:00pm - Wed 17th Nov 2021 at 5:00pm
We are in a time of transformative and turbulent change. A time of breakdowns and breakthroughs. A time that asks us to step courageously into an unknown, unknowable, emerging future.
Are you longing for a different way to develop your personal agency and leadership for change? Are you called to seize this unprecedented opportunity for regeneration of our highest human values and play a part in regenerating our depleted planet? Do you deeply desire fellow pilgrims on the path with whom to share this journey?
The Regenerative Path is a journey to develop the qualities and practices of regenerative leadership to help participants create the change we need for a new, vibrant, life-affirming and regenerative economy to emerge. Together we will journey through a new way of perceiving and working in the world through living systems. We will explore the challenges we face and practice together what we learn as we go, adapting, learning and evolving our change practice and, by doing so, increase our effectiveness in supporting organisations, teams and colleagues through this liminal space of transformative change.

Participants will gain

- Confidence and courage through collective intelligence and community
The Regenerative Path
Our theory of change for a brighter future is deeply rooted in the belief that we must increase and enhance our capacity to lead transformative change in the world. In this journey, we develop your capacity to lead regeneratively and to create change by activating your personal agency, external considering, and internal locus of control.
We explore the inspiration and guidance of nature’s intelligence, learn the practices and develop the qualities that will help us navigate complexity and uncertainty with courage and compassion. Each week we will explore a different aspect of the Regenerative Path in live sessions where we have an opportunity to reflect and apply knowledge and wisdom to our work.
You will receive material in advance of each live session to study.
We will then work together in reflective practice to deepen our insights and learning, together. We will breathe in to work together as a whole cohort during learning sessions and breathe out in small reflective groups as we deepen our learning.
