Leading Across Boundaries for Systems Change
Facilitated by Peter Senge & Darcy Winslow May 1 - 3, 2018 Ashland, Massachusetts, USA
This intensive, interactive, three-day program builds on decades of hands-on experience by Peter Senge and Darcy Winslow in shifting cultures of organizations for the wellbeing of employees, communities, and the planet. Whether within an organization, a value chain, or a community, deep change often involves building networks of trust and collaboration across boundaries, within and among organizations. This workshop will build skills that you can use right away to make change and move from polarization and inertia to collectively envisioning, initiating, and creating new futures. Special attention will be given to how to help shift the collective focus from just reacting to problems to releasing collective creativity.
Who Should Attend?
Business and functional leaders, managers, directors and influencers
People who want to build their leadership capacity to lead change efforts, from wherever they sit within their organization.
Leaders who feel a personal commitment to building more sustainable organizations, value chains, industries and communities.
Teams from all sectors who are working on sustainability initiatives in their organizations.
We hope you will join us.
Lead complex system change in recognition of the larger system that the change is occurring in; and in service of long-term social, ecological, and economic well being.
