Strategies of Innovation and Renewal


Tapping the Power of Networks will introduce the network approach, an approach that brings new insight to addressing complex challenges - the kind of challenges where you need to work together. The network approach is one where everyone is potentially a leader. Connections and relationships are key to unleashing innovation and amplifying your work to reach more people, more deeply. Whether you are a non-profit, a for-profit, a network or an individual the workshop will help you build the skills and values you need to work in new ways.

  • Learn methods for catalyzing, supporting and “weaving” networks - existing or brand new.  
  • Practice ways to renew and re-energize the movements and networks you are part of. 
  • Learn to recognize and nurture the patterns of self-organizing. 
  • Uncover ways to get resources, skills and knowledge flowing equitably through the networks you belong to or are building.
