Join us for a 3-day experiential gathering focused on our Leadership for Collective Wisdom™ and Wisdom Dialogue™ frameworks. This intimate learning experience will create a respectful and enlivening atmosphere for all participants.
Participants will learn:
- Commitments and practices that can strengthen our capacity to be more fully present, joyful, and generous.
- Why organizational and community change efforts often stall, falling far short of their long-term outcomes and aspirations.
- How to help communities and organizations access collective wisdom in service of improving results and solving complex problems.
- How to recognize and help organizations and communities avoid the traps of collective folly.
- A process for helping organizations and communities address adaptive dilemmas and improve results through systematic learning conversations.
John Ott and Rose Pinard co-founded the Center for Collective Wisdom (C4CW), and developed the frameworks that guide C4CW's work. John has designed and facilitated successful large-scale change efforts for over 30 years, consulting with foundations; state, county, and local governments; small businesses and a multi-national corporation; local schools and schools districts; and myriad non-profit and community-based organizations. Rose has more than 25 years of experience as a corporate manager, organizational researcher, organizational development consultant, and coach.
John is co-author of The Power of Collective Wisdom and the Trap of Collective Folly, published by Berrett-Koehler in 2009, and Centered on the Edge, published by the Fetzer Institute in 2001. Rose has conducted original research on dialogue, a foundational process for the Leadership for Collective Wisdom and Wisdom Dialogue frameworks. They have worked together for over a decade, designing and facilitating organizational and community transformation efforts to resolve major budget shortfalls, plan for major systems transformation, and improve outcomes of community well-being.
