If you had the time and opportunity to connect with yourself and the greater good, what is it that you would want to bring to the world? Our world is at a precipice. We all share responsibility in realizing sustainable change for the future. In the past few years, the climate crisis, biodiversity loss, social inequalities and geopolitical polarisation have taken center stage. For many of us, this ignites feelings of frustration, anxiety, and futility. In the face of urgent and highly complex, interconnected global challenges, it can be hard to imagine how we, as individuals, can make a change. As leaders, citizens and human beings, we can no longer afford to postpone taking action for our collective future. If we are to live within planetary boundaries and enable a prosperous future for ourselves, our families and future generations, we must transform the way we do business. And this begins with ourselves. How might we integrate regenerative and collaborative forms of leadership for long-term sustainable change into our lives and work? How might we cultivate a community of like-minded peers that can empower and center us as we make the tough choices necessary to realise change? How our offer supports you Regenerative Leadership accompanies you in developing and strengthening a mindset of resilience and regeneration, the foundation from which we imagine and enact sustainable transformation in our lives and work. You will spend five day encompassed in nature, away from daily business and supported by experienced facilitators; draw inspiration from like-minded peers in an environment of trust; discover unexpected ways to take action for the greater good. We apply theory-based and practice proven hands-on methods and tools, rooted in transformative learning and nature-based coaching, creativity and system thinking. These include explorations in nature individually and as a group, deep listening, storytelling, and carefully targeted impulses among others. This programme is aimed at you Regenerative Leadership is aimed at team leaders and managers from across sectors who want to reconnect with themselves in preparation for imagining, realizing and implementing sustainable change in their lives and organizations; leaders ready to draw strength from nature in an environment of trust.
