Lively – Living Leadership and Stakeholder Participation

• Is your organisation lively?
• Are you inspiring your staff to excellence?
• Do your customers sense that and love to collaborate with you?

I can facilitate organisations in coming to life, help living leadership and stakeholder participation flourish, develop the full potential of an organisation, and demonstrate how it can self-organise to practice constant change and even love it.

Since 2001 organic farming was publicly promoted all over Germany under Renate Künast, and yet the markets did not grow in 2002 and 2003. I asked myself, how change really happens and discovered for myself group methods for shaping the future and engaging whole systems like Open Space Technology, Future Search, World Café and others. I immediately sensed that they enable real change. Then I learned more methods and practical ways. In the US I became a Genuine ContactTM Trainer and learned how to use the full potential of all participants by living leadership and participation of stakeholders.

Living leadership and stakeholder participation promotes and uses the diversity and self-organising forces of living systems. These are exactly the same principles that govern organic farming. In organic farming, the first and main concern is also to create a life-nurturing environment for plants and animals instead of controlling pests afterwards using chemical pesticides.

Living leadership and stakeholder participation or "Genuine Contact™ – a holistic approach to organisational success" can be taught and learned. I provide interactive workshops as open courses or as closed in-house seminars.
