More Information about this Event:
In this session, we focus on how leaders can create and facilitate a “learning container” for transformative learning and collaboration. This is the structure that provides for and encourages learning and deeper connections between people as they work together in teams, organizations, communities, and movements. When there is careful consideration given to the design of how people learn and connect, the result is more generative conversations that engender trust–a foundational element for any transformational experience. Session participants can expect to take away key insights and practical tools from this session that help them to see themselves and their leadership in new ways.
