still moving landing & launch part 2 september 6th, 13.00 - 17.00 CET

AT Natlab, kastanjelaan 500, eindhoven, the netherlands

The leading question of the event will be: How come some leaders of change are significantly more successful than others?

Deborah Rowland has been inquiring into this question for almost a decade – both, as a consultant for organizational development and as a senior business leader. Following her anthropologist origins, she launched an in depth investigation and has just now published her findings in “Still Moving – How to Lead Mindful Change” (Wiley 2017). A book Liz Mellon describes as “… fun to read, beautifully written and packed full of business stories. “ (Dialogue, Issue May 2017, for full review see ).

Her insights from this research detail a different way of leading change  - a way that is at the same time more effortless and yet more sustainable by integrating a key set of capacities and skill. Around these concepts, a community of change practitioners has gathered who are all passionate about helping individuals, teams,  organizations and wider society to embrace a different way of leading change. This community made its first public appearance at a similar event in London in March 2017 – as the Still Moving community of purpose. More than 80 participants  - distinguished senior business leaders  from across all industries, different nationalities and different functions  as well as people who support change as internal or external consultant and OD experts joined. 


The event will consist of two parts

A)      An introduction and illustration of the key dimensions of leading emergent change by Deborah – how to set up the right approach to change, which inner capacities a leader needs in order to successfully lead change, how that shows up in their leadership practice and how a truly systemic lens can help to create sustainable, fundamental change

B)      A very experiential and collaborative exploration of what “Still Moving” can look like in reality – exchanging with fellow senior managers, connecting with subject matter experts and co-creating an approach to pending questions you may want to bring to the event


What is the benefit?

You will get primary access to hot of the press insights on systemic change leadership with an opportunity to explore to your liking what that could mean for you and your organization. What’s more, this is an opportunity to connect to like-minded people – colleagues and change practicioners who have a deep desire to understand how better change leadership can move the urgent questions we face as individuals and collectively today and are passionate about working towards their purpose in this world. Participation is free of charge, you will only need to fund your travel costs.


Some logistics: 

The event will take place in the NatLab, which used to be the Philips research facility (here things like the CD and LED lamp were invented). Before the event some finger food will be available (from 12:00) and afterwards some drinks will be served.

If you come by car there is sufficient parking space in the area.  If you come by train it is a few minutes walk from the train station Strijp S or 15 minutes from Eindhoven Central Station.  If you would like to stay overnight we can recommend the Blue Collar Hotel in the vicinity.
