Workshop: Women’s Leadership Lessons from Nature

Women’s Leadership Lessons From the Living Earth

Women leading change in these dynamic times are tuning into new sources of inspiration—personally, socially, and globally. They are seeking guidance in how to be more adaptive, resilient, networked, and systemic—all things we can learn from the natural world around us.

During the weekend, participants will learn to integrate biomimicry methods with leadership practices. What might we learn about cooperation from a forest ecosystem? How can nature’s feedback loops inspire us in cultivating our networks? How can bee colonies mentor us for self-organizing within a community? 

WHAT: Women’s Leadership Lessons From the Living Earth

WHEN: October 10, 2014 – October 12, 2014

WHERE: The Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, New York
