Think like a Forest EXPERIENCES 8 and 15 March, Leicestershire (for Leics VCS only)



We associate forests with growth, creativity, diversity, connection, strength and resilience – characteristics that make for healthy, vibrant, productive workplace too.


Over one or two immersive days in a beautiful woodland setting, our programme will guide you through the various elements of a healthy workplace ecosystem, showing how changes, small and big, can transform the way we think about our work, workplace wellbeing, our relationships with colleagues and customers and our place in the wider world.


Drawing on learning from nature via disciplines such as biomimicry, ecopsychology, biology, systems thinking, regenerative leadership, psychological safety, permaculture and holistic design frameworks, you will explore how to take small steps towards having a healthy organisation modelled on ecosystem design, with wide ranging benefits for people, productivity, purpose and planet.


Both thought-provoking and practical, at the end of the day you will have a first grasp of the frameworks needed for a regenerative transformation, practical and achievable ideas to take back to your workplace; and an abundance of resources and further reading to use and to share with colleagues.


No prior experience of regenerative leadership is necessary – all will be explained.  This training will meet you where you are, allowing you to use the frameworks for your own specific issues and circumstances.


We guarantee that you’ll leave the day with renewed hope that there is a way for organisations to pursue their visions without the stress, burnout and team issues that have become so familiar.  Replacing them with outcomes that are more in flow with the rhythms and successes of nature.
