Join Stoos Connect in Zurich

...or around the world!!

Join Dan Pink, Steve Denning, Joe Justice, Franz Röösli, Jurgen Appelo and many other speakers as we respond to the Stoos Communique.

It all started one year ago:
Reflecting on leadership in organizations today, we find ourselves in a bit of a mess. We see reliance on linear, mechanistic thinking, companies focusing more on stock price than delighting customers, and knowledge workers whose voices are ignored by the bosses who direct them. All these factors are reflected in the current economic crisis, increased inequity, bankruptcies and widespread disillusionment.

There has to be a better way.

We believe that we uncovered some of the common characteristics of that better way. For example, that organizations can become learning networks of individuals creating value and that the role of leaders should include the stewardship of the living rather than the management of the machine.

-- Stoos Communique, January 8, 2012
This message resonated! The Stoos Gathering was followed an active LinkedIn Group, by the StoosXchange, the Stoos Stampedes in Amsterdam and Phoenix, and numerous Stoos Satellites around the world. The desire to find a better a way is shared by people around the world!

The Communique left one big question unanswered, 'What is that better way?' But we should really say, 'What are those better ways?' Just as there is more than one way to do Agile Software Development, there is surely no single right way to do Stoos.

Stoos Connect! looks for those better ways.

In celebration of World Stoos Day, the Stoos Satellite Netherlands is organising the Stoos Connect in Amsterdam. Dan Pink, Steve Denning, Jurgen Appelo and many others will present their approaches.

In contrast with the previous events, the entire world can participate in this fantastic event! We are setting up live multimedia streaming so anyone, anywhere, can watch the sessions. This is exactly why this event is called Stoos Connect!

The Stoos Network Zürich is organizing two live feeds in Zurich. Liip AG and I am proud to co-host this event in Zurich. Via live video, you can follow all the talks and discuss better ways with other people here in Zurich.
