Retreats overall theme


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.


We will:

  • 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 2, Making Room for Innovation: Reassembling our World of Work


So, now what? At the second of these retreats, you can expect: 


  • Take stock of the key activities in our work and then sift, prioritize, and plan actions that invite agility and sustainability

  • Uncover and work with the present paradoxes and tensions

  • Articulate ways to foster resilience in new innovations and encourage the deep change we are seeing
