An invitation to people in leading positions to pause, reconnect, and build readiness to drive transformation Regenerative Leadership addresses two existential and interrelated crises simultaneously: the crossing of planetary boundaries, and the loss of connectedness to ourselves, others and nature. We need to pause. Reconnect. Rejoice. Reroute. We introduce regenerative leadership as a systemic approach to leadership, nourished by a deep connection to ourselves, to others and nature, thereby holding the potential to serve the wellbeing of the entire ecosystem: self, team, and organisation. To become regenerative leaders, we need deep skills. Skills like listening truly, following curiosity, building trust, showing up fully, questioning ourselves and our mindsets constructively. We need to step out of the wheel of acceleration, growth and ever-increasing expectations and begin to regenerate. Through structured and skillful immersion in nature, we support you in deepening your journey of regenerative leadership in this unique new course.
