Retreats overall theme
EACH SOLUTION IS A:
This retreat series will offer the opportunity to take time away from our regular work and give ourselves and each other the space to nurture innovation and adaptation to face the uncertain future.
Reflect on the journey of the past year and take stock of which ways of working we want to preserve and what we want to leave behind
View our current challenges through the lens of complexity (not all challenges are created equal)
Explore how the challenges we are facing are part of large and embedded systems
Give and get imaginative help from our colleagues
Experience a whole new way to interact together, online
You'll leave each retreat with:
Concrete ways you can begin to innovate, right now
Clearer articulations of the most persistent challenges
Deeper networking connections with Humentum
What to expect at Retreat 3, Making Room for Innovation: Reassembling our World of Work
EACH SOLUTION IS A:
So, now what? At the final retreat, we will ask:
Now what? How have we changed? How, with our new thinking, do we act our way into the future? We will draft robust strategies for an unpredictable future and discover what we can do right away.
In this retreat, you can expect to:
Develop strategies for operating in a range of possible yet unpredictable futures.
Discover and focus on what each of us has the freedom and resources to do now.
Reflect to reveal insights and paths forward.
Agenda coming soon!
All retreats will be led by professional facilitator, Maggie Chumbley. Maggie has gained a reputation for being a master at engaging and meaningful virtual sessions.
