The Bio-Leadership Project helps people and organisations meet 21st Century challenges by drawing inspiration from, and working in partnership with, Nature.

The Bio-Leadership Project is a response to three big trends:

The search for meaning.

The need to address global challenges and opportunities
in smarter and more connected ways.

The need to restore and rebalance our relationships
with natural systems.

Too many of our everyday systems and organisational models hold us back from doing these things well. However, Nature is a perfect partner in finding new ways to transform and organise our human systems, from businesses to cities to schools.

Our aim is to help to do this, bringing together people from leadership, innovation, design, ecology, research and sustainability to do so.

Our vision is to make profound changes to how we grow as human systems, in order to meet the greatest challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century.

As we launch in 2016, we are working on consultancy,
research and development programmes.

Bio-Leadership Bristol & SW

Bio-Leadership Bristol & SW aims to support new ways of working by drawing inspiration and working in partnership with nature. The programme is designed for social and organisational innovators and change-makers in Bristol and the South West who want to make real shifts towards building new kinds of organisation, fit for the kind of inspiring, long-lasting future we hope for. It will run from May until September 2017 and will be evolved through a series of workshops deepening our understanding of the principles of nature and exploring how we can ground these principles within our own lives and work in more meaningful ways. For more information about the programme, including details of how to register your interest, click here.

Leadership on the edge of Living Systems: Research and Learning Programme

Leadership on the edge of Living Systems is a research programme aiming to help organisations become more adaptive and better connected by working more as living systems. Through the work we will interview leaders who are operating on ‘the edge’ of living systems, we will interview thought leaders and ‘pioneers’ bringing living systems approaches into the world and we host spaces to work learn and work with emerging ideas and issues.  For more information click here.

Leadership Development

We help to thread Nature’s wisdom into Leadership Development programmes. Individually we have been working on a number of initiatives to support organisational capacities for innovation, resilience, adaptability – and personal qualities such as presence, awareness and systemic capability.

Bio-Empathy & Bio-Leadership in Brazil

Over the past 2 years we have been asked to facilitate a ‘Bio-Empathy’ module for Amani Institute’s outstanding Social Innovation management programme. The Bio-Empathy module, which takes place over four days, helps participants deeply reconnect with Nature while asking questions about how to lead a different kind of change in the world. Bio-Empathy then evolved into a wider set of workshops and programmes in Brazil – first two ‘Leadership inspired by Nature’ workshops, and then a deeper ‘train the trainers’ programme which culminated in the co-design of a larger 3 day Bio-Leadership workshop in March 2017. We are delighted to say this work will continue – São Paulo is doing amazing things by working with Bio-Leadership ideas.
