The Shapership Programmes

A Transformative Experience   

Transformative Journeys into the Future(s) thanks to more Imagination, more Courage, more Freedom, more Hope, more Desire

The Shapership Academi is the place to discover and learn Shapership, the Art of Shaping the Future.

It focuses on the need to boost the efficient and Creative Thinking, Imagination and the Courage needed to build viable and transformative Futures on Desire, Hope and wisdom. 

The Shapership Academi offers you, individually and /or collectively, unique opportunities to explore and learn in practice the Mindsets, Attitudes and Skillsets needed to become a Shaper of the Future, which we call Creative Agency.

Creative Agency is the power and freedom to

  • look at the way you look at things, think about the way you think, transform what and how you think
  • create and recreate meaning filled with purposeful Creativity
  • change your lenses, consciously shift your perspectives, escape conventional Wisdom, beliefs and ideas
  • adopt Creative - even "Revolutionary" - Thinking to invent the widest possible range of solutions to the "wicked" problems now facing our lives.
  • explore the Future with Imagination
  • deliberately change the stories (mental maps, worldviews, beliefs and perceptions) that shape your life, so you can change the way you shape the world.

The Academi provides Knowledge and a holistic approach to build the Shapership Attitude

A way to face Reality "as it is" and "as it could be " in creative, visionary and sometimes revolutionary ways.

An attitude of Radical Authenticity, Creative Imagination and Unconventional Wisdom which leads to

  • challenge and escape the prison of "representations"
  • see things with fresh eyes
  • unlock imagination and open up new meaningful path to the Future, transforming Society for the better.

The academi is designed to create the conditions you need to

  • equip yourself with State-of-the-Art Creative Thinking, Forecasting, Conversation practices
  • learn and practice the MINDSETS AND DEEP SKILLS OF THE FUTURE: Creativity, Imagination, Wisdom and Reflection

You will develop your capacities to consciously try new Perspectives, navigate uncertainties, creatively solve dilemmas, think beyond the horizon of the thinkable, "make the Future the cause of the Present" and deliberately instill the sense of Hope and Purpose in everything you do.

It is a way to become an "I Opener", an "Eye Opener", an "Eye Hopener" and a "High Opener". 

The "GO from EGO to ECO" programmes

Our sessions are carefully articulated to "GO from EGO to ECO consciousness 

Each programme is a Transformative Experience, crafted to enable you to think big and radically differently about the way you see the world and how you want to contribute to its Transformation, for yourself, your communities and Society as a whole.

A unique Methodology.

Our workshops are live, interactive, co-creative - limited to 12 participants and we use a radically different approach to Education: "Learning as unusal". 

How can you learn the Art of shaping the Future? By rehearsing it!

That's why Each workshop" is a "Rehearsal of the Future"; offering you opportunities to

  • safely transform what and how you think
  • learn in the Presence of others
  • as well as reframe your mental maps

Each module is a carefully designed with our "Learning as Unusual" Pedagody around fluid sequences alternating between Action (experimentation stream) and Vision (meaning making and teaching stream), enlivened by peer-to-peer learning, fieldwork and other methods.

How is the programme built? 

Around the careful articulation of the "ingredients" needed to make the "Art of Shaping the Future" emerge

We use tools and methods but we intend to help participants develop an "Art".

Like a Mayonnaise is the combination of various elements which generates more Value than the sum of the parts, the Academi generates a specific "Mayonnaise effect".

  • The ingredients of each workshop are the Shapership Academi 16 CORE and OTHER Lenses, Metaphors, Methods, Points of view, Processes and Tools which support the Learning Process
  • Each workshop is a specific Mayonnaise: the association of selected "ingredients" around a specific theme to make specific competences emerge and interact.
  • The Academi's program is the careful articulation of five workshops, which reinforce each other to make the Art of shaping the Future" emerge as a whole "way of being, seeing and acting", a combination of "deep skills"

As individuals and "communities of work", invest in building the Mindsets and Skillsets of the Future, not those of the Past

Teaching Faculty: Aline Frankfort, Jean-Louis Baudoin & Special Guests

Format: our workshops are live, interactive, not based on pre-recorded video lectures. They are limited to small groups of 12 participants to ensure dynamic and profound interactions.

This is not a MOOC (Massive Online Open Course); it is an EECO (Exceptional Eclectic Course delivered Online)

They are different from a usual webinar or course lecture. The interaction includes elements of visual facilitation and requires continuous visual presence for participation in discussions.

2 days in a raw is a profitable investment in time. This format is like a sky ladder: a "vehicle" which allows to reach higher level faster because it creates an exponential effect, as opposed to split days.
