International Going Horizontal Training – South of France

October 23, 2019 - October 25, 2019

How do we transform our workplace into a more human and engaging space, beyond being cogs in a machine?

What are some strategic pathways towards participatory leadership that will avoid falling into chaos?

Is shared leadership really possible?

What happens to managers in a less hierarchical organization?

If you find yourself asking any of these questions, then you know the way we run organizations is changing! People want to be part of teams that are empowered, engaged and autonomous – while staying connected to the purpose and strategy of the organisation. This Going Horizontal training is an immersive and experiential leadership training that helps you really understand the growing field of self-organization. It equips you with practical methods, tools and strategies at the core of collaborative ways of working – that you can apply right away.


International guides


It doesn’t matter what field you work in or your role, only that you want to help an organization, big or small, find its way into a shared leadership model and purpose-driven work. This includes organizations that are beginning their journey and want to figure out where and how to move forward, as well as those who have been on the journey for a while and wish to step back and gather a wider perspective.

It is possible to be both professional and empathetic.
Anton Dalsmo, Engineer

I came away energized, excited and with a renewed enthusiasm for what our company is doing. I can honestly say that in my 25+ year career I have not experienced anything like it!
Organization Designer, ET Group

The 7 dimensions in the horizontal framework can help you be grounded and calm and still work in hurricane environments.

After Belgium, Spain, Canada and the Netherlands, Going Horizontal is coming to France, in a magical setting along the Mediterranean Sea at Sète. 

Known as the Venice of Languedoc and the singular island (in Paul Valéry‘s words), it is a port and a seaside resort on the Mediterranean with its own very strong cultural identity, traditions, cuisine and dialect.” (Wikipedia)
