The Walk Out Walk On module at YIP will be a week-long learning experience (both practical and theoretical) exploring how people all over the world are walking out of unsolvable problems and destructive individualism and walking on to solve problems and discover abundant resources. This workshop will:

  • Deep dive into the “Two Loops” framework and principles related to systems thinking to begin exploring the idea of emergent change in the world. What is possible for our communities and ourselves when we understand the connection between ancient wisdom, modern leadership and trailblazing new work?
  • Support YIPpie’s personal leadership explorations and apply principles of walking out and walking on to their own lives, leadership and community. What do you need to walk out of? What are you willing to walk on to?
  • Connect our work as changemakers with our commitment to build healthy and resilient communities—places where everyone is welcome to learn, grow and contribute across differences to create a better, stronger whole. How can we build healthy and resilient communities?
  • Explore the phenomenon of “walking out and walking on” and how it impacts the health and resilience of organizations and communities. Where in the world are people walking out and walking on? What is the new world they are creating?
