Do you want to lead innovation workshops and groups effectively? Do you want to lead professionally through critical innovation phases?
With our training we address trainers and leaders, who want to host, facilitate, moderate, support, inspire, guide and empower others during critical innovation phases or visionary development processes in order to create positive change. You will gain an ample variety of hosting methods for all different phases in the innovation process. You will experience creative tools from the inside and you will practice and reflect to spread an innovation friendly attitude and sharpen your individual innovation hosting style.
This programme makes available the knowledge and experience of decades of transformation and innovation work within the two organisation, Plenum (Austria) and Visionautik Akademie (Germany) as well as two year intensive work within the European Strategic Partnership “Hosting Social Innovation” with two further partners: “Artmonastery Project, Italy” and the “Sendzimir Foundation, Poland”. It will bolster those important hosting competencies:
As a Certified Innovation Host you will have knowledge and the hosting skills to empower people. With you as their host, they can actively shape their social and ecological environment and create positive change.
The target group of this training is primarily people who already work as facilitators or leaders (e.g. teachers, moderators, consultants, trainers, managers…), who want to add competencies regarding hosting (social) innovation to their personal or professional portfolio. This workshop is for people who:
… aim to be quick and effective problem solvers.
… want to implement an innovation attitude in their organization.
… dare to face challenges that cannot be solved by traditional approaches.
… help their learners to think out of the box.
…want to live a wide awake lifestyle of creativity and curiosity.
The training program consists of two parts and will be in English language:
In between the trainings
You will be asked to work on a self-chosen hosting innovation assignment, the design of an innovation session at home, your “masterpiece”. You can choose it big or small, easy or challenging, depending on what you want to learn and take out of it. You will get support and feedback for your planning and prototyping and the possibilility to test parts of it in part two of the training. We also encourage you to connect with your peergroup. Please plan some time to work on this assignment in between the trainings.
We will work with methods rooting in Human Centered Design, Deep Ecology, Theory U, Arts, Body Work, Mindfulness, Action Learning, Personal Mastery, Process Work, Improvisation Theatre, Creativity Techniques, Constellation Work, Systemic Consulting, Appreciative Inquiry and more. We are very unprejudiced and pragmatic about the methods: We use what works best. We introduce you to time-tested methods of the above mentioned areas as well as newly developed methods or approaches we have taken further. In this training we love to show you the jewels from our own facilitation practice combined with an experimental spirit and playful lightness that leaves space for the unforeseen.
Our trainings are hosted in a consequently appreciative way, we strengthen abilities instead of weakening weaknesses. We work process oriented and adapt our curriculum to the needs of your group in the process whilst making sure you will come out with the aim of the training.
Where it is possible we let you dive into the methods yourself with your own endeavours and innovation challenges in the center, so you will know from your own experience how the methods work. Reflecting on and preparing for your real case innovation challenges at home will weave together your learnings and your needs at your own working surrounding.
During and after the training you will have access to our innovation method database that contains step-by-step explanations of the methods of the Hosting innovation training and some more with a search to easily find the method that fits.

"Es war wunderbar zu erleben, wie viel Innovation in einer vertrauensvollen und offenen Umgebung möglich ist. Ich habe selten so viel gelernt, gelacht und gelebt!
Neue Ideen wachsen dort, wo ich mich öffnen kann und so sein darf, wie ich bin. Das Hosting Innovation Training hat mir gezeigt, dass es möglich ist, solche Orte zu gestalten und das inspiriert mich nachhaltig."
