NCDD Discount on Leadership in a Self-Organizing World Conference

Here is a special message for NCDD members from Peggy Holman about the extraordinary upcoming conference, Leadership in a Self-Organizing World

With so much upheaval happening today, there are many exciting experiments underway that shed light on new forms of organizing.  On May 14-17, we are bringing together people from a variety of sectors including corporations, nonprofits, education, government, communities, and the arts.  We have much to learn from each other.  And as practitioners with conversational forms, NCDD members are at the heart of this type of this work.

Harrison Owen, creator of Open Space Technology, will offer us a starting place based on his most recent book, Wave Riders: Leadership for High Performance in a Self-Organizing World.  Because the gathering is primarily in Open Space, it is a co-creative learning laboratory for sharing stories and learning from each other about leadership and self-organization.  We welcome NCDD members who have not already registered for the conference with a $150 discount off the corporate, non-profit and government rates or $100 off the individual rate.

Some details are below.  For more information, visit www.selforganizingworld.net.

Dear friends and co-conspirators,

Many of us have been experimenting with new forms of organizing and leading for years and decades. Others are seeking new ways as the old practices are insufficient to the challenges they are facing.  It’s time for us to gather to bring together our experiments, efforts, stories, wisdom, and questions.

Please join us for Leadership in a Self-organizing World – www.selforganizingworld.net.

We are convening at the beautiful Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort, nestled in the Cascade foothills outside Leavenworth, Washington, about 2 hours from Seattle.

Harrison Owen, creator of Open Space Technology, will be joining us and launching his book Wave Rider: Leadership for High Performance in a Self Organizing World.

Harrison uses the term “wave rider” to describe the kind of leadership and organizational/community capacity needed to survive and thrive.  We’ll spend out time together pooling our collective learning about what “wave riding” is really looking like, what are our pioneering efforts are showing us and what’s next.

To see who is coming, visit www.openspaceworld.org/cgi/netwiki.cgi?WhoIsComing

We hope YOU will be part of this too!

Register now, mark your calendar, and invite all your friends!  For more information, visit www.selforganizingworld.net.
