BARCELONA, SPAIN

BUSINESS, AS USUAL, IS NOT AN OPTION FOR YOU ANYMORE. 

If you are reading this, you know the complexity of the 21st century demands a new approach.

You live it every day. The age of industrial, top-down, command and control systems is over.

It is time to accelerate the transformation.

Business, as usual, is not sustainable anymore. It has taken long enough, but we’re finally entering a new paradigm of how we live and work together. How do we get to live that new paradigm effectively?

The theory is not enough.

We need major shifts in mindset out of a vertical and hierarchical culture. We need organisations and teams of employees and workers who are more empowered, engaged and autonomous.

By joining the Going Horizontal training and community, you will learn and share with a team of skilled practitioners, with years of experience in multiple sectors.

IN THIS TRAINING YOU WILL LEARN AND PRACTICE:

  • How to build a Personal Toolkit of practices for your life and work.
  • How to use Autonomy to boost accountability.
  • How to use Purpose as a compass that unlocks coordinated action and non-hierarchy.
  • How to organise and host Meetings that are effective, engaging, and co-created at their core.
  • How to work with Transparency as a practice of innovation and a basis for trust.
  • How to find the right Decision-Making methodologies appropriate for different scenarios in your personal life, organisation, and teams.
  • How to work with Relationships & Conflict as a tool for growth and learning, and enhance team cohesion.

Meet your allies in this work: the people and organizations who are as committed as you are to work and live non-hierarchically.  

OUR HOST LOCATION

CAN BORDOI CASTLE

On top of a hill, built 100 years ago, in the middle of the Natural Park Montnegre-Corredor, Can Bordoi Castle transports you back in time through its mosaics, towers, and stained glass windows.

Just 45 minutes from the centre of Barcelona, Can Bordoi Castle offers a bubble away from everyday activities, where deep transformation & learning are possible. We go 100 years back to make the jump 100 years forward. With eight shared rooms, four separate working spaces, three comfortable common areas and a meditation tower with a view of the far distant sea, Can Bordoi is an ideal space to retreat, practice and strategize the new paradigm of work in a community.

We will be joined by a local chef, who will prepare three delicious meals, in traditional Catalunya style, for us each day, and you will experience the rhythms of community life each day.
