Program

One of the hallmarks of ALE is being an “unconference”, meaning its program is designed by the participants themselves, using the format of Open Space Technology (OST).
The beauty of this approach is that those who propose a session topic are passionate about it, either to talk about it, or to learn about it from others, and the session attendees self-select to contribute to that topic’s discussion.

In addition to the ALE Draft Agenda (below), please also check out the Extra Programs that some participants have prepared:

  • High-performance Teams: Culture & Core Protocol – Friday Aug 25
  • Integral Coaching in Service of your Service to this World – Saturday Aug 26
  • Facilitation Workshop – Sunday Aug 27
  • Graphic Facilitation Workshop – Sunday Aug 27
  • Deepening Team Connections With Clean Language – Thursday Aug 31
