Each organization has its own unique organizational culture that starts at inception. It stems from the vision of their own leaders along with all the different experiences that individual members bring into the mix, including stakeholders and partners. This creates a dynamic, living and breathing eco-system.

The objectives of this training are to:

  1. Understand your current eco-system and organizational needs,
  2. Stimulate innovative approaches to move through blocks and grow,
  3. Increase self-awareness to balance drive and value, 
  4. Engage vital components of an ecoCreative culture.

In this workshop, learn what an ecoCreative culture is by reviewing five organizational examples and the conditions it takes to create positive movement. Listen to what your organization needs by understanding these patterns of culture. Apply what you learn to enhance teamwork and support a thriving organization.

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast, lunch and dinner.” Peter Drucker

This workshop will inspire participants to work collaboratively within their organizations and/or across organizations. Participants will connect with one another through a variety of interactive activities and discussion to equip them in creating successful collaborate efforts and movement toward an ecoCreative culture. The activities are based on the Move As One system.

Move As One is an organic, ecoCreative system that empowers leaders and teams.
It combines best practices from strategic organizational processes with eastern wisdom and methods to develop responsive leaders, high-performing teams and thriving organizations.
This system cultivates a wholistic, eco-system perspective and aligns presence, passion, purpose and partnership for remarkably enhanced performance.
