Welcome to the garden

FORGING CHANGE AGENTS FOR THE POST DIGITAL ERA

There has never been an era so promising for growth opportunities and challenging old leadership and organisational assumptions, change management and innovation like the present one. Today, companies are slowly but steadily moving away from traditional ways of working, perceptions of success and the industrial-age set of values that have been in place to date.

The Garden offers a transformational learning approach in which collective intelligence, collaboration, co-creation and coopetition take precedence over the values of scientific management and “fixed” organisations. All training sessions are conducted according to a methodology that sits on three fundamental axes: Surprise, Emotion and Movement (SEM).

Programmes are actively sourced from the bFast Labs live experiences to ensure each session is fully aligned with the ecosystem’s need and expectations.

CRITICAL AND FLEXIBLE THINKING

It is very clear that the old way of doing things is no longer applicable. As a genius once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”. In the era of uncertainty, having the ability to see opportunities where most see obstacles, and know how to materialise them, is the most powerful advantage.

The Garden Retreats

life changing Self-development and transformational experiences

You are going to spend several days deep diving deep into transformation space. Our purpose is to "show you another world" and deeply explore the nature of the principles behind your everyday´s experience. While you can expect this to have a profound impact on your grounding, this will not be explicit coaching or skill-building. We will be aiming to help you "get everything you come for and more" by creating a space where you can experience a deeper consciousness..

This will not be about intellectual understanding; it will be about transformation. We're going to be spending several days in a deep feeling, looking in the direction of the formless. Feel free to bring a "laundry list" of changes you want to make, goals you want to achieve and problems you want to solve, but be aware - you will get what you came for, but maybe not in a way you expect it!

This is one of our favourite events to run. We get to spend time together with a small group of people as we facilitate profound and lasting change. In years to come, you'll look back at this as a transformational turning-point in your life.
