ARE YOU LOOKING FOR NEW WAYS TO ACCELERATE THE SHIFT TOWARDS A MORE INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE GROWTH PATH? JOIN US!

CO*CREATION & LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT LABS IN URBAN AREAS AND TRANSFORMATION RETREATS IN NATURE


Like a nomad camp, MOVABLE^LAB will travel through Europe and will stop and work with leaders like you in Barcelona, Rotterdam, Berlin, Prague... Join one of our MOVABLE^LAB CATALYZE LABS, LEAD LABS or NATURE LABS, and you will return fueled up with new skills, resources, ideas, actionable plans and many building blocks for new leadership to emerge within you.


CATALYZE LABS

MOVABLE^LAB CATALYZE LAB is a 2 days itinerant CO*CREATION LAB aimed at developing new skills and capabilities to enhance and strengthen the capacity to innovate for the future and simultaneously meet social needs.

This lab is full of positive energy and helps participants to create a great impact today and tomorrow. 

Together we experiment and seed knowledge, develop and accelerate new transformative and conscious ways of thinking, leading, collaborating and managing complex challenges in society. We address the most critical societal and environmental challenges, and together create feasible and action-oriented approaches to solve them. We co-create powerful formats and actionable ways to tackle critical issues, facilitate grassroots processes and initiatives, inside as well as outside organizations. 

The program is built for young social entrepreneurs and young social innovators, who all stand out because of their leadership skills and social engagement. 

This program is free of charge to all eligible participants. This program is made possible by our donors, funding partners and sponsors who acknowledge the need for new leadership as well as the often-lacking possibilities for young leaders to participate and who are determined to contribute to a better society.

 

LEAD LABS

MOVABLE^LAB LEAD LAB is a midweek itinerant LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT LAB aimed at developing new building blocks of leadership for leaders in organizations.

One of the primary goals is to enhance the leaders’ toolkit to realize fundamental changes in their organizations; if a systemic change is not set in there will be considerable problems in contracting the employees representing the new generation of Millenials. Organizations have to be desirable for Millenials to work in. It’s is not just a part of strategic HR, it is investing in the nearby future, in the power to innovate, in the possibility to add value to societal issues and preservation of environment.

These leaders are the necessary link between the existing organization in a phase of radical transformation and the mental legacy brought in by young upcoming high potentials, crucial for realizing the sought after systemic change. 
Often these leaders have several or more years of experience in leadership roles. They have to let go of many old dysfunctional and counterproductive ways of thinking and acting, mostly dictated by the relentless quest for efficiency and effectiveness and urge to control and restrain.

These challenges are underlined by the organizations they represent and therefor for this program participants pay registration fees to actively support and make possible our complementary activities aimed at all the young catalysts.

NATURE LABS

MOVABLE^LAB NATURE LAB is a weeklong TRANSFORMATION RETREAT giving space for connection to nature and continuing leadership training.

 

MOVABLE^LAB NATURE LAB is aimed at creating bonds between people and their surroundings, thus allowing a deeper understanding of our collective and individual actions on Planet Earth. Our team of experienced facilitators, coaches and change catalysts will facilitate an experiential learning about the self as well as alignment with ecosystems. Leading from a holistic perspective, which is bound to create the sought after transformation both internally and externally. Thus we are creating a space of conversation and inquiry about natural systems and balanced living.

We invite you to retreat to Nature to get inspired by the seasons and give yourself some concrete ways to make your life more holistic and healthy. This retreat will feature activities supporting Leadership Development just as other MOVABLE^LAB programs do, but in a natural setting as we want young leaders to connect to their inner beings and reconnect to Nature.

For this program participants pay registration fees to actively support and make possible our  complementary activities aimed at all the young leaders, such as the CATALYZE LABS.

Why


Why


MOVABLE^LAB CATALYZE LAB and LEAD LAB are transdisciplinary and transcultural leadership development and co-creation programs designed around the new generation of leaders, their current and future challenges.

We need conscious and authentic leaders who inspire, initiate and successfully go through complex transformation processes. And we need current deciders that are truly aware of the fact that today's youth are tomorrow's leaders and see that systems have to change to make space for the future these young change makers want to see.  

We must no longer see problems as a starting point but rather the dream or the ideal situation. This way we can organize and channel collective ambition and focus on the people - on what they really want - more than just on the processes or the results. We need a different mindset, other competences and skills, new tools and resources, new forms of communication and collaboration and different angles to look at parties involved and the issues at stake.

We cannot expect all these changes in thinking and behaviour from the ones that have been educated in systematically controlling and commanding. We largely depend on a new generation of leaders to enhance new perspectives and make change happen. Smart organizations know how important it is to invest in them and give them the tools to realize change in their working environment. 

MOVABLE^LAB NATURE LAB is for the trees, the rivers, the fields, and the wildlife in a sense. We now know that human beings shape the planet in an unprecedented way. This same way of operating, can be tilted towards regeneration and allow for a greater tint of green to flourish on planet Earth. Thus young entrepreneurs and social innovators looking for a deeper connection are encouraged to join us on a retreat of calibration. We want you functioning at full capacity with a broad awareness that translates into real change. In short you have to be the change before you can manifest the change. We desire young leaders to join our team of change makers, ecologist, health professionals and social innovators for a mix of facilitation and practicality. 

How


How


MOVABLE^LAB CATALYZE LABS and LEAD LABS are experimental, experiential, highly interactive and collaborative programs. We bring together participants from different fields, countries and industries. We learn, work and develop collaboratively to find solutions to complex challenges in today and tomorrow's world. Taking part in the lab is a real challenge. It may be different from what you know because it’s not about learning from an expert what is already known. It’s endeavouring in the era of systemic change and innovation. You will return to your organization fuelled up with new skills, resources, ideas, actionable plans and many building blocks for new leadership to emerge within you.

MOVABLE^LAB NATURE LAB enhances a holistic leadership perspective as well as tools to improve our daily lives on a physical and energetic level. Our future leaders must be fit in body, mind, and spirit and we hope to impart practical tools and new ways of thinking/being. Your deprivation of nature will be compensated and you will create a new sense of value around your personal health and the global environment. This will help dramatically in our way forward. We depend on our blue planet, and today more than ever, on each other to move forward in a way that respects all beings. Your network will grow, your hands will touch soil, your eyes will light up from colours of green and brown, your minds will be stimulated and ultimately a transformation will be sparked.

LEAD LABS

You are a professional with several years of experience in leading roles and you are aware of the transformation the world goes through. You are an involved leader in your own company, a governmental institution, a not-for-profit organization, a corporation or a network organization. You see that the solutions you used to choose no longer work and you are motivated to develop new leadership and to make a positive impact on the people and stakeholders you work with and on society as a whole. You are fully aware of the fact that today's youth are tomorrow's leaders and you are dedicated to facilitate them to become the leaders the world is longing for. Join us in our LEAD LABS.

NATURE LABS

Are you longing for ways to develop models that are more based on the patterns of nature?  And are you looking to turn problems into solutions? Losing a sense of self in the consumer world? Are you finding yourself falling into the same old thought patterns at work as well as at home? A position of innovative entrepreneurship or leadership is a delicate balance of hard work and forward thinking. It requires creativity and a strong network to achieve the solutions for our current challenges. Nature’s lessons are often on a subconscious level subsequently bringing on a real need for immersion. Guidance in the process of connecting is something people may seek and we offer the space and facilitators to do so. Join us in our NATURE LABS.
