About The Open Leadership Symposium

This is a 2-day, deeply immersive, learn-by-experience Leadership Symposium on Open methods. At this event you’ll engage deeply with peers, across two full days, and make real connections as you learn to identify and use Open methods.

The methods that actually work, at scale!

This is the world’s first and only leadership symposium on how to apply Open methods to achieve agile and digital transformation. Open methods are those methods that engage the attention and energy of your workforce. Employee engagement is absolutely essential to any success you may have in achieving transformational change.

This conference is all about that. Open methods of leadership leverage the power of invitation, to engage employees in service to creating strongly positive business outcomes. This is the leadership symposium where you’ll find out exactly how to do this, safely and pragmatically. You’ll hear case studies. You’ll find your peers here, the new kind of leaders…who have done it. Your peers, who are actually doing it. Your peers, who are now teaching others how.
