Next Stage World Gathering Practical Dimensions of your Leadership

September 12-16, 2024

Halki, Greece

Course description

Next Stage World gathers a global community of  practitioners and leaders, entrepreneurs and teams establishing themselves in ‘new work’ habits of working and being. Together with other next-stage practitioners and innovators, you will bend the beam of your observation into the practical dimensions of your leadership: from the interior work of developing Self and embodying self-lead culture, to the exterior work of structure and process within organizations.

At this gathering:

The program is driven by the cases, questions and contexts of the participants. The content is adapted to the needs and questions of the participants day by day. Focus is more on improving the questions than needing to know answers.

You must be yearning to explore next stage organising as well as the next stage of self.

You must be longing to interact and learn from a wider community.


The course builds on proven methods for positive change:

  • Appreciative Inquiry and Action Learning
  • Holocratic and Sociocratic Elements
  • Art of Hosting Collaborative Change Processes
  • Mindfulness and Embodied Self-leadership.
  • Organisational Systemic Constellations (Representations)
  • Living Strategy Framework for leadership teams
  • Warm Data Labs

The participants will receive a toolkit of methods that are easily transferable to their educational settings.


Your Burning Questions + Community Intelligence = Evolutionary Action

In every NSW gathering participants bring their most present challenges and up-to-the-minute questions into the foreground. Using processes that evoke the collective intelligence in the room, we capture and harvest our insights and make our learning visible across the levels of individual, organizational, and ecosystemic scale. From these insights we further refine our questions, discover new insights and resources, and commit to action.

The Next Stage World gathering will help you transform your thinking, your business models and your impact. Our holistic process of facilitation will help you see more of the complexity that your organisation is operating in. It will stretch you as a leader to your own next stage and developmental edge.
