Only living by example can create the culture of change – and enables successful leadership in changing times.
Usually off site, e.g. in nature, and most definitely far removed from the usual mode of thinking, away from the comfort zone and into action and new terrains. From extreme sports to joint creative experiences. This living the change shows us our strengths as well as the typical fears and concerns that every change entails.
The latter are not a cause for alarm – we just have to recognize them, in ourselves and in the others.
Once we have consciously experienced all the stages of change, once we know how others react to change, then we can safely navigate through the storms of change with lucidity, awareness and our hearts.

The 'experience space' has, actually opened up spaces for companies, management and employees, who in practice are going to require a much broader space in the future."
