Webinar: Enhancing Aliveness for Individual and Systems Transformation
May 4, 2023
8:00 am - 9:30 am Pacific US
11:00 am - 12:30 pm Eastern US
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm WET
Fostering patterns of aliveness in ourselves, our teams, our organizations, and our stakeholder systems is essential for bringing about transformative change.
Applying the Collective Leadership Compass can help us become more aware of, navigate, and enhance these patterns for co-creating results-oriented cultures of dialogue and collaboration. Entry points for enhancing aliveness vary from person to person and from stakeholder system to stakeholder system, and evolve throughout a complex change process.
Questions like “What makes me feel alive?” “What makes my team and partners feel alive?” and “What is needed now in our process to continue to enhance aliveness toward our shared vision?” can be answered with reference to Compass dimension patterns of Future Possibilities, Engagement, Innovation, Humanity, Collective Intelligence, and Wholeness.
This interactive webinar will explore patterns of aliveness at the individual and systems levels.
By the end of the webinar participants will:
Explore the concept of “aliveness” within ourselves and our collaborations
Learn about a real-time example of applying a collective leadership approach to helping enliven “Our Blue Future,” an emerging transformation network spanning 10 Western Indian Ocean countries
Discuss ways in which the Collective Leadership Compass can help further enhance patterns of aliveness from the individual to systems levels
