"THE ART OF HOSTING IS AN APPROACH TO LEADERSHIP THAT SCALES UP FROM THE PERSONAL TO THE SYSTEMIC USING PERSONAL PRACTICE, DIALOGUE, FACILITATION AND THE CO-CREATION OF INNOVATION TO ADDRESS COMPLEX CHALLENGES."

In 2014, I was introduced to the Art of Hosting at an Authentic Leadership In Action Institute. I immediately knew it was an approach to group process that felt at once familiar and absolutely necessary way in order to understand the type of wicked problems facing our world. I have apprenticed with Tenneson Woolf, who was there in the beginning when Art of Hosting coalesced. I have participated as a trainer here in Portland, teaching systems, mental models, and visual thinking since 2015. I utilize the methodologies and principles through out my work.
