"Conscious Leadership"

Conference in Oslo October 20th – 21st 2017

Optional: Nature Retreat at the One World Institute at Hornsjø - October 22nd – 25th 2017

How can we elevate people and organizations through conscious leadership?

An extraordinary two day gathering that combines conference, workshops and wisdom practices in and around SALT Arena in Bjørvika.

Explore vital topics

The world and it’s people are transforming rapidly. ‘Business as usual’ must transform too.

We know that organizations have the power to elevate people through good leadership. But what does it take to be a good leader?

We know that the spirit of people is at the center of great innovations. But how do we ignite that spirit and allow it to shine?

We know that learning is a catalyst for mental and behavioral shifts. But how do we stimulate sharing and learning?

We know that the world expects business to think beyond profit and make an impact with a higher purpose. But how do we meet those expectations in a credible way?

It’s all about embracing a more conscious leadership style.

About the event

The gathering is designed for visionary CEOs and their leadership teams, executives and entrepreneurs, the consultants and coaches who serve and support them, business investors and owners, discerning university students, aspiring leaders and anyone else interested in learning more about Conscious Leadership.
