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 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
|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.
