Open Space Technology

Open Space Technology (OST) offers a method to run meetings of groups of any size. (“Technology” in this case means tool — a process; a method.) OST represents a self-organizing process; participants take responsibility for constructing the agenda, leading and attending sessions during the meeting itself. It is one way to enable all kinds of people, in any kind of organization, to create inspired meetings and events. With groups of 5 to 2000+ people — working in half-day, one-day workshops, or three-day conferences, participants create and manage their own agenda of parallel working sessions around a central theme of strategic importance.


Leadership is no longer about your position. It's now more about your passion for excellence and making a difference. You can lead without a title.

Robin Sharma

A sense of humor is part of the art of leadership, of getting along with people, of getting things done.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.

Max Depree

Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything
that can be counted counts.

Albert Einstein

Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

John F. Kennedy

Mountaintops inspire leaders but valleys mature them.

Winston Churchill

We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act, but a habit.
