Executive Champions’ Workshop (August, 2019)

Facilitated by Peter Senge, Otto Scharmer & Arawana Hayashi
August 13-16, 2019
Stowe, VT

The Executive Champions’ Workshop (ECW) has thrived over the years because of a growing desire amongst senior leaders from diverse organizations around the world to engage in deeper dialogue with peers who share their aspirations and face similar challenges. With its distinguished participants, this program has consistently created a distinctive space for deep reflection and conversation around questions that matter. The ECW is not a training session. Nor is it a typical conference. It is both personal and substantive in the way that only deep conversation among peers can be. Offered in collaboration with the Presencing Institute, the Executive Champions’ Workshop (ECW) is a special setting for nurturing new thinking and relationships among executive leaders in today’s rapidly changing economic and social landscape. Offered by invitation for executives who are champions of change, the ECW is a unique opportunity to reflect, refocus, and recharge.
