Participatory leadership and the Art of Hosting: a personal and collective journey. Last week I took a 3-day training in participatory leadership, which is how the European institutions have repackaged the ‘Art of Hosting‘ approach.
I had wanted to join this training for a couple of years now but never had the chance to do so due to conflicting priorities. Now that I moved to the European Commission, it was an opportunity too good to miss. And right I was! I had a fantastic time, connecting with like-minded colleagues, learning about them, about the organisation I work for and about myself. Patterns for Agile Organizations - The Sociocracy 3.0 Remix Kit. Facilitation Resources – Chris Corrigan. Here is a collection of resources I use in my facilitation practice.
By and large these resources support facilitation of participatory and self-organizing process at scales ranging from very small groups to large conferences. I use some of these tools directly and others as inspirations to design and create my own processes. The first section provides links to participatory group process that are inclusive and self-organizing to varying degrees. The section on process architecture and maps contains links to sites whose worldviews can inform process design from single meetings to large scale change. The next three sections cover more specific tools useful for particular purposes, and finally the last section contains links to sources of ongoing inspiration.

Designing a business for emergence and complexity. Here at NM HQ, we’re using a new approach to redesigning our business that I think is completely unique and possibly revolutionary.
It’s based initiative and emergence, and perfectly suited to creating decentralised and purpose-driven businesses. It’s born out of the Source principles work of Peter Koenig, and has been created by NM associate and Very Clear Ideas founder Charles Davies. Two people who are proving very influential in our ongoing transformation. I want to share how this is working in case it’s of value to others. First a bit of back-filling. Where does the purpose of a company come from? Where does the purpose of a company come from?
To be purposeful, you have to have a purpose. Obvious really. But where does the purpose come from?
