Nothing Missing Leadership:
at Windhorse Farm with Jim Drescher and Nick Matheson
Within organizations, progress arises from creative insights, aligned choices, and coordinated actions. This retreat invites inquiry into the nature of effective leadership, healthy businesses, and flourishing communities. Leading change in complex environments, requires new ways of thinking, acknowledgement of feeling, and consistently acting from a greater consciousness of whole systems. Hosted primarily on and by the land, the natural environment of Windhorse Farm is a beautiful container for exploring these questions more deeply together.
The inner and outer practices of Nothing Missing Leadership will be woven throughout to deepen your practice and strengthen connection and caring. This foundation is essential to thriving amidst the organizational practicalities and constraints faced in producing results and growing impact.
You might want to preparefor this retreat by:
• reflecting on personal and organizational challenges
• taking slow walks in nature at least a few times each week.
• churning up some good ideas and letting them go.
