Nora Bateson – Liminal Leadership – 13 & 14 June 2018


Liminal Leadership

Price: £395+VAT= £474 including lunches and refreshments

Venue: Hilton Hotel, Bath

Join the wonderful Nora Bateson for this special two day exploration into the further reaches of a new leadership.

“Whatever leadership used to be — it used to be. Now, it has to be something different. Now, we all have to be more than we were. The kind of leadership that I want to explore may not be identifiable as leadership at all.  I am interested in a kind of mutually alert care and attention to the well-being of all people and ecological systems. This kind of leadership cannot be found in individuals, but rather between them. It cannot be found in organizations, nations, religions or institutions, but rather between them. I have called it Liminal Leadership to highlight the relational characteristics.”
Nora Bateson.


Please read this beautifully written, bold and provocative article on Liminal Leadership by Nora,

it will describe to you the territory of this workshop and the importance of  this liminal approach moving forward



Nora Bateson describes herself as an “interdisciplinary interloper” she travels between conversations in different fields and with different audiences bringing multiple perspectives into view to reveal larger patterns.

She teaches internationally, leading conversations and seminars. Currently she is developing her next film and has recently published a book about the practical application of systems thinking and complexity theory in everyday life entitled, “Small Arcs of Larger Circles”.

Nora is also a filmmaker, lecturer, writer, as well as director & producer of the award-winning documentary film, An Ecology of Mind, a portrait of her father Gregory Bateson’s way of thinking, follow link here.

She is the president of the International Bateson Institute,(IBI), in Stockholm Sweden. The IBI brings together the sciences, arts and vocational wisdoms, to projects from around the world, that require interdisciplinary research reaching into and beyond the academic frame.

You can view Nora’s Blog postings here, these include, Practicality in Complexity and one introducing Symmathesy.

Here previous workshops for us have focused on  Symmathesy: Learning & Change. We are working with her to create a new event working with Warm Data to address ‘Wicked Problems’.
