However you view the world, there can be no argument that we are living in complex and challenging times, both locally and globally. Our communities have experienced huge impacts in recent years. The impact of drought, bushfires and Covid-19 have left us with a compelling need to connect and strengthen our communities, to find collective and compassionate leadership, and to face the future together, whatever it might bring.
In these times, it is vital that we find effective ways to work well together - to connect to and care for Country, to support each other, and sharpen our tools for collaboration and connection so that we, and those who are yet to come, can navigate these challenges.
The Art of Hosting and Harvesting Conversations that Matter (also known as the Art of Participatory Leadership) offers simple and powerful participatory practices, patterns and processes to host generative conversations that lead to coordinated action and positive change. These approaches have been used effectively in diverse contexts worldwide to harness collective wisdom, encourage compassionate leadership and collaboration, and create better social and environmental outcomes.
You are warmly invited to join us for a 3-day Art of Hosting training in Cobargo, South East NSW, to explore the questions that you are passionate about, and develop new ways of working together to create the future we need.
Who is this for?
This training is for anyone and everyone who wants to explore the power of collective creativity, intelligence and collaboration with each other and within organisations and communities:
Covid safety and postponement
We are committed to keeping us all safe and healthy during this training, and will have a Covid Safe plan in place.
We will be keeping a close eye on NSW Government Public Health orders and will adapt to meet them if they change at any time, including during the training. If this affects your attendance, we will offer you a full refund, or a pro rata refund if during the training. If postponement of the training is necessary, we will offer a full refund to all participants.
We hope this gives you confidence enough to register in the hope that we can meet together safely in person.
For any questions about Covid safety, please contact our Covid Safety host Jane Geltch on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0403 769 863
