Laddership Pods are a global peer-learning lab for values-driven changemakers. Over three weeks, participants immerse in an online “head-hands-heart” journey in the nuances of leading with transformation, gift ecology design thinking, and incubating an offering of service.
Together, we hold uncommon questions: How do we design for a more compassionate world? Can we innovate regenerative solutions that aren't fueled by the forces of money, power and fame? How does inner transformation affect our external impact, and when do individual acts harmonize with a collective “law of love”? Where traditional project incubators support their entrepreneurs in becoming sustainable through material capital, here, we collectively engage nonmaterial, intrinsically motivated and vastly untapped dimensions of value creation, along a living journey of “generosity entrepreneurship”.
Among the podmates converging for this round are a young qigong teacher who works in the frontlines of conflict; a changemaker who walked 1700 miles across South Africa, an Irish mystic who spent 4 years in deep meditation at Tiruvannamalai without experiencing a single thought; General Counsel to Obama in his first term; an open-hearted poet from New Zealand; business leaders and nonprofit founders; community builders and creatives; mystics and medics; educators and entrepreneurs; and so many others. All holding genuine intentions from podmates across a few hundred applications and 37 countries!
Here's an overview of how this particular "living lab" will unfold, and the general three-week journey, along with examples of pioneering guests and mentors from past Laddership Pods:
HOW IT WORKS: Every day, you’ll receive a uniquely curated prompt with 'head' content, 'hands' practice, and 'heart' reflection questions to engage. Each week explores a unique meta-theme: “me” (aligning with your values), “we” (designing for synergy), and “us” (igniting a collective flow). Everyone submits reflections daily, and then reads and comments on each other's submissions to build a dialogue. Each week, starting with an orientation on Feb 11th, join live zoom calls to synthesize our learnings and hear from inspiring guest speakers! For more of a flavor, read about our original pilot experiment with podmates from 25 countries: Alchemy of Uncertainty.
If this resonates, and you can commit 10 hours a week or more, we invite you to join our learning journey. Simply submit the application below and the Pod Volunteer Crew will get back to you with more details.
