SoL European Forum

Welcome to Stockholm and The SoL European Forum May to explore
the Transformation of Organisations and Values in a new reality!

The toxic influence of our collapsing economic system is being felt across business, the environment and our society. A more human-centred capitalism is emerging to replace it, driven not from above, but by people from all levels and sectors.

  • How can we contribute to the systemic change going on in organizations, business and society at large (economy, ecology, politics …)?
  • Is there a need for a new generation of leadership?
  • How can we, as a SoL community, engage our collective intelligence to address today’s challenging issues?

SoL Sweden, and The Society for Organizational Learning  invite you to explore the shift taking place in Europe in cultural, ecological and economic fields and its challenge for our corporations and societies.

We strongly believe that you are part of the next generation of leadership and welcome you to co-create the new reality from a perspective of Organizational Learning and Systemic change.

You will experience three days where you together with other inspiring people will explore, co-create and learn from experiences and theories about a new reality!

We will meet for plenary sessions, workshops, learning circles, breaks and activities that will stimulate your learning and exploration. All through there will be dialogue where you can challenge your thoughts with others and engage in collective learning.

Every morning and throughout the three days we will invite you to shorter moments of mindful movements, music, meditations and other activities that will stimulate body, feelings and mind. We will also spend time in nature, being in a beautiful park.

A New Reality

The next generation of Leadership
The new generation of companies are contributing to real change in harmony with the needs of people and society. New business models are rapidly emerging, built on transparency, values and collaboration in cooperation with consumers and competitors. A combined economicalecological and social shift changes the reality for leadership both in organizations and society at large.

The core essence of the new generation of leadership calls for people’s participation. It comes down to you and me and what we can create together. It’s not a question of age, it’s about our ability and courage to take a new leadership in our personal and professional lives. It raises questions such as: How do we want to lead and be led? How do we want to organize and be organized? How can we inspire and be inspired? And how can we bring the new leadership to emerge? Read more…
