By working with nature, regenerative agricultural and land management practices result in outcomes that are far more beneficial than other production systems: higher yields, greater biodiversity, improved water efficiency, and healthier crops and animals. At the same time, these practices promise to address many of the systemically interconnected problems we are facing today…from rapid loss of topsoil and declining yields, to dwindling water resources and catastrophic wildfires. Regenerative principles work!
Now, those same principles are being applied to human ecosystems – organizations – with equally impressive outcomes. Imagine building a system of underlying health within organizations that allows for positive outcomes across multiple impact areas such as communications, decision-making, innovation and team members' well-being. Simply put, when people and organizations are allowed to operate as they are intended, potential is unleashed and the entire system thrives.
nRhythm and implementation partner Being Imaginal, leaders in the emerging regenerative field, invite you to attend this transformational three-day workshop and discover how you can apply regenerative principles to your organization.
Being Imaginal is an Implementation Partner for the nRhythm Regenerative Framework and a founding member of the nRhythm Community of Practice.
About the Workshop
This three-day intensive workshop will introduce you to the nRhythm Regenerative Framework, which takes a holistic, systems-based approach to improving organizational outcomes while increasing the efficiency, effectiveness and well-being of the team. The Framework was first used by the Savory Institute to design and manage a multi-stakeholder and multicultural network of partner organizations in over 20 countries. nRhythm has trained scores of organizations in the US and around the world, empowering them to apply regenerative principles at the organizational level in enterprises as diverse as manufacturing, technology, business networks, food services, health and wellness, non-profit, agriculture and finance. Now, in partnership with Being Imaginal, these principles are being introduced to startups and early stage organizations who seek to create the conditions for long-term success.
The Regenerative Framework will guide you in building the human systems in your business or nonprofit in a way that generates abundant and resilient outcomes. You will become skilled in making decisions that are informed by the underlying health of the organization and in building an ecosystem in which your organization and people can thrive.
Who Should Attend?
This workshop is designed for entrepreneurs, startup and early stage teams, and small business owners seeking solutions to organizational challenges such as managing finite resources, building and developing a well-rounded and balanced team, communicating, delegating, working through bottlenecks, and iterating quickly and intelligently.
