A Simple Art of Hosting Meaningful Conversations & Participatory Leadership: A 3​-day Workshop for facilitators, leaders, managers, educators & community builders

Are you looking for innovative ways to engage in meaningful, impactful conversations in your workplace, community or family? Are you interested in new forms of leadership that generate fresh thinking and create a shared commitment to solving critical challenges in sustainable and inclusive ways?

What is the Art of Hosting? artofhosting.org

The Art of Hosting is a participatory approach used worldwide for leading, convening and engaging in a depth of conversation and leadership that transforms our relationships and gets the necessary work done. Drawing on centuries of human wisdom as well as some new ways of thinking about how we work well together, the Art of Hosting is accessible and engaging in a wide range of contexts. An Art of Hosting learning event includes some of the following methodologies: World Cafe, Open Space Technology, PeerSpirit Circle, Pro-Action Cafe, Knowledge Camp, and Collective Story Harvest

In addition, participants bring their real questions and challenges and we select from a variety of additional tools and methodologies so you can develop your own hosting practice. We may explore any of the following: Applied Improvisation, Participatory Decision Making, Cynefin Framework, Appreciative Inquiry, Living Systems, Theory U, Chaordic Design, Complex Adaptive Systems, Emergence.

You will have the opportunity to:

Practice what you learn
Transform conflict into creative cooperation
Engage all stakeholders in meaningful conversations
Enhance your ability to see and address difficult questions
Learn to design and implement the Art of Hosting methodologies
Understand how to scale strategic conversations for small and large initiatives
Connect with other leaders and explore how you can work more powerfully together

Many of the problems and issues we face in our organizations and communities can only find creative and wise solutions in collaborations with others. No matter what sector we work in, what community we live in, or what family we were born into, we are all faced with situations that demand people working together across their differences.
