GH Book

Develop and expand horizontal ways of working across 7 domains of practice. Rooted in real organizational experiences – tried, tested and compiled at Percolab and other organizations around the world – you will live the experience of truly working with shared leadership and acquire practices and tools that can immediately be put to use in your context. Based on the book Going Horizontal, recently published by Samantha Slade, details practical shifts in practice that can transform the ways you engage at work.

We are living in times that invite us to straddle both vertical and new horizontal leadership paradigms. Major shifts in mindset out of a vertical culture are happening, and there are organizations globally which are beginning to evolve into more collaborative, agile and horizontal workplaces. Organizations need teams who are more empowered, engaged and autonomous while staying connected to the purpose and strategy of the organization.

Perhaps you have already started working horizontally in some ways. This training will strengthen, accelerate and deepen what you have begun. You will learn practices to help you where you are stuck.

Shifting mindsets is your biggest lever of system change, and the community of people propelling this change is quickly spreading across the globe. Come meet and join them.
