Managing a Future Search – A Leadership Workshop

Location: Philadelphia, PA, USA
Dates:  December 7- 9, 2020 

Managing a Future Search – A Leadership Workshop, is for facilitators and leaders who want to learn how applying Future Search principles enables a community or organization to transform its capability for action. We will explore theory, principles, techniques and applications of Future Search. We will also experience the dynamics of Future Search in a simulation. Participants will acquire the tools needed to organize and manage Future Searches with integrity in any sector or culture. Managing a Future Search runs two full days and a morning.

Lead More, Control Less – A Master Class in Leading Meetings That Matter

Location: Philadelphia, PA, USA
Dates:  December 10 – 11, 2020

This is a seminar for those who want to take a deeper plunge into managing meetings and managing yourself. We will explore the realms of practice beyond traditional models, methods and techniques. We will go more deeply into personal and structural issues for leading interactive meetings. Using real issues, we will discover the essentials of controlling what you can and letting go of what you can’t control. Together we will learn more about applying principles for meaningful, energizing meetings. This is another opportunity to change the paradigm that breeds time-wasting meetings to one that promotes holistic, productive meetings.
