Movement Alchemy workshop at Traditional Dream Factory during ReFi DAO week — Portugal October 2023

TAO Workshop

To go deeper in the exploration of the 4 leadership polarities (vision, order, action, care) through archetypes, the TAO workshop (2h online or offline) brings participants through a series of practical & embodied exercises.

Working individually, in pairs & in groups, the objective is to conduct an individual situational assessment (your strong/weak leadership archetype) and develop your emotional agility & “androgynous” leadership capacities (leadership/yang energy AND followership/yin energy).

Tools for organisational transformation : culture scan, collective inner compass, TAO x OCAI

By measuring your cultural health and tracking your values / practices alignment with the collective inner compass, you can identify major blindspots upfront, before they become a serious threat to your organisation. Designed to avoid the usual traps of decentralisation processes and bring teams on the androgynous path : combining the best of centralised/directive and decentralised/participative models.

Ouishare Case

Develop the androgynous capacities of your organisation in function of your eco-system & culture by measuring your level of androgynous maturity with the TAO x OCAI framework.

Inspired by OCAI framework.
