The New Regenerative & Ecosystemic Leadership Paradigm
19th & 20th September, 2019
with Giles Hutchins and Katherine Long
In a world of complexity and chaos, we need future fit leadership and organisational paradigms.
Our collective new normal is revealing itself through multi-dimensional change-upon- change blended with systemic ‘wicked problems’. It requires the cultivation of ecosystemic and holistic sense-making amid diverse views, rich interdependent partner ecosystems, unfolding emergence and fast- paced turbulence. This invites an expansion of awareness within us; a shift that enlivens a latent ecosystemic capacity within us.
To recognise this places us at the edge of the current discourse; the edge of leadership and organisational development; most of all – the edge of ourselves and our social systems. It invites us to cross thresholds, within ourselves, our systems and our civilisation.
Thought leaders and practitioners Giles Hutchins and Katherine Long pool their decades of leadership and organisational development experience to offer radical insights and practical tools in a two-day deep-dive leadership immersion for leaders and change practitioners to deepen their understanding and practice of next-stage life- affirming leadership approaches now demanded by our present predicament.
This is a personal invitation to join an intimate yet diverse group of leaders exploring the edges of the new. It includes an over-night solo in the woods, and takes place in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the ancient High Weald area of West Sussex, with good connections to London and beyond, 8mins cab ride from Balcombe station. All camping equipment and sleeping bags are provided. 9.30am start Thursday 19th to 4.15pm Friday 20th September – £645, includes all refreshments, camping equipment, and meals.
We will learn about Regenerative Leadership while in the woods together, we shall cultivate ecosystemic awareness and living-systems logic while in deep connection with nature, and we shall apply advanced adult developmental psychology and human emergence techniques while eating round the fire together, sleeping solo outdoors with spacious peace, tranquillity, safety and humility.
