Journeys & Workshops

Join us on a Journey of insight, reflection and deliberate action.

About our Journeys
& Workshops

Our workshops are highly interactive and grounded in experiential learning, peer exchange and reflection, as well as sharing and implementing practical methods and tools. 

Our Journeys are multi-week online programs for small groups, facilitated by our Journey Guides. They combine weekly 2 hour online workshops, peer coaching sessions, and individual exercises. We offer a number of public Journeys each year for individuals, as well as Journeys for organisations. 

We can support you to build the leadership capacity in your team, organisation or network with our Leadership Journey, to grow as an empowered and collaborative team through our team workshops, or to offer personal and project development to your beneficiaries or alumni through our Changemaker and Purpose Journeys. Check out our past project to learn about our work with organisations and networks.

All our standardised Journeys have been certified by the Institute for Education and Social Innovation (Ibugi). We also offer customised Journeys and workshop series. Our workshops are mainly offered online, yet we also offer in-person facilitation. We work in English and German.

This 12 week Journey has been a very intensive experience that has helped me to get to know myself and my team better. The sessions were a great mix of thematic inputs, exchange with the other participants and work on ourselves as leaders and as humans in general. Thanks to that, for myself I now perceive leadership as the gift and sign of confidence that it is and am happy to assume this role in my organization. We as a team could already implement new structures and tools that help us to grow together and to create a work environment in which we feel safe enough to be ourselves and to bring in all our resources and ideas.
