This transformative experience is crafted to enable participants to think big and radically different about the way they see the world and how they want to participate in its Transformation.
It is a way to become an I Opener, an Eye Opener, an Eye Hopener and a High Opener.
Each workshop is a "Rehearsal of the Future". It offers opportunities for each person to safely transform what they think and how they think, shift their Perspectives, as well as deliberately reframe their "mental maps" so they can change the way they shape the world.
Thanks to a series of metaphors and maps for Transformational Gift Conversations, each workshop invites participants to individually and collectively make visible the taken for granted ideas as well as alternative stories of the Future they want in line with their Dreams, Hopes, Aspirations versus "fixing the problem".
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".
The flow of the programme starts with an introductory workshop designed to acquire the Mindsets and Thinking abilities to become creative actors in the new Society. It focuses on the Art of THINKING all of us need, individually and collectively, to design innovative concepts and ideas that will make the "Pertinent Difference".
Then, each of the remaining 4 Modules is built to deep dive into specific aspects of Shapership and to build the Shapership "Altitude Attitude". An attitude of Radical Authenticity, Creative Imagination and Unconventional Wisdom which allows to escape from the prison of our "representations", to see things with fresh eyes, to challenge the status quo, to unlock Imagination to generate Life-affirming transformative approaches, attitudes and behaviors that give us Hope that a viable Future is possible.
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 flow of the program starts with a 2-day introductory workshop designed to acquire new Mindsets and Thinking skills to become creative actors in the new Society.
It develops awareness of the critical shifts in perspectives, ways of reading and making sense of the "Theater of our Mind" and shifts in Thinking needed to move from MAD Land to NO MAD Land.
It focuses on the Art of THINKING all of us need, individually and collectively, to design innovative concepts and ideas that will make the "Pertinent Difference".
(note that these outcomes are not generated by a 2 day session but through the practice of the approaches and tools during the rest of the Shapership Academi Process)
Instead of being under the pressure to conform, looking for the one right "formula" or the "tested Truth", mainly busy "rearranging" the furniture in the same room, everyone becomes more thoughtful and mindful, with the Courage, Flexibility and Imagination needed
The second module builds on the first and also runs over 2 days. It allows participants to work with their own stories, discovering new perspectives, weaving new threads towards a Future that includes their Hopes and Aspirations.
Designed as a "Rehearsal of the Future", this workshop allows to practice the 4 movements indispensable to the Art of Reperception - See, Sense, Seize, Shape - with a particular emphasis on The Art of SEEING.
Day 1 Living Self as a Multistory
Day 2 Living out of the Boxes
In this 2-day workshop, participants will work in groups and/or communities to sense and tackle important issues of our time and create Transformative Innovation - demonstrating competence in practice.
This is Shapership as a Group practice to change the stories that shape our lives so we can change the way we shape the world.
Each day is a rehearsal of the Future which happen through
This is a fun way to experiment a series of aspects, mainly Strategy and deep Innovation, in a completely new way, avoiding the narrowness of conventional approaches
The workshop emphasizes The Art of SENSING.
In workshop 4, participants will take a closer look at how to think BIG, Radical and in transformative ways to make alternative Futures Visible.
The focus of this workshop is Possibility Thinking and "Butterfly Thinking" with the goal
This is an invitation to
The Metaphor of Mad land and NO MAD Land will be used as a support for the "Hero's Journey", allowing to rehearse the Future by consciously trying new perspectives to shape the Future everyday.
The "programme" is structured around the first 2 leverages of Shapership for transformative impact: Creative Resistance and Transformative Vision
While making this "Rehearsal of the Future", we will add tools and lenses to de-envelop "Butterfly" and Possibility Thinking,
The content is especially designed to develop the Art of SEIZING
This is the Altitude Attitude in practice.
This module builds on the 4 previous ones to master the "Art" of shaping the Future.
It expands anyone's capacities to make alternative Futures visible, shared , desirable AND actionable to create the Transformational Journeys.
There is a particular emphasis on The Art of SHAPING the Future, turning transformative Visions and dreams into strategies.
This is the third leverage of Shapership: The Creative How.
A Transformative Vision calls for Transformative Actions.
To make the shifts towards a new paradigm, Shapers often need the courage to completely reinvent the ways things operate. But not alone. They know key issues require System Solutions, new forms of Collaboration rather than "Competition". They rally a dynamic Ecosystem of actors and partners to shape Reality in new ways, so that Anticipative Experimentation becomes a space for co-creation and collective improvisation on Desire. This jamming together. Whether it is through a Movement, a Company, a Community, Shapers unite people around shared Purposes and make the Transition Path visible.
This module proposes a rehearsal of the Journey thanks to a series of Metaphors and Maps for Transformational Conversations - at each step - and shifts in the way participants think, feel, speak, and act. The main metaphor being our exclusive approach of "Jazz as a new Art and ethic of Collaboration".
i.e. able to understand reflect and apply the "Jamming Together" concepts and principles in a transformative strategy and projects in NO MAD LAND, working on 4 Arts
