At Experience Integral's Embody Integral Sustainability Conference convenor Anouk Brack very wisely used a Theory U design for the five day discovery process.
Priorities: With Barrett Brown’s new research on Sustainability Leaders, we were able to self-assess and create a group assessment of key leadership capacities and where we needed to focus our learning.
