Create a more participatory, prosperous and relational world!

Building on the book Going Horizontal, the Horizontal Leadership Workshop aims to develop your skill and ease with daily work habits that build a more horizontal way of working together. We will explore practices in the seven domains of collaboration that are simple and concrete ways to start now, whatever your position in an organization and wherever you are in your horizontal pathway.

Note: cet atelier est aussi offert en français (consultez la liste complète).

What you will walk away with
A starting set of concrete practices and methodologies with a commitment to engage your horizontal leadership (self-efficacy)

Who is it for
You don't know where to start, or are having difficulty landing horizontal tools, processes, and practices in your organization.
You are looking for a holistic framework and supporting set of practices to take concrete steps towards integrating non-hierarchical ways of working.

What you will learn

  • Why Go Horizontal?
  • A three-level approach to upscale horizontal practices (informal, safe and formal)
  • A strategic approach to build capacity
  • The practice practice practice mindset
  • A series of concrete practices from the seven domains: Autonomy, Purpose, Meetings, Transparency, Decision Making, Learning and Development, Relationships and Conflicts

This workshop is part of the Going Horizontal approach based around the seven domains of collaboration and on an incremental approach to build personal leadership and strong collaborative organizations by making them more dynamic, productive, creative, engaging and participatory.
