7-10 December 2018 | Montreal



The Future of Work is Human is proud to present our first Collaborative Practice Intensive - a 3.5 day retreat in one of the most beautiful centres in Quebec for people who are ready to reach their next level of mastery in collaboration.

These retreats will offer :

  • a reflective (and reflexive) space to deepen your collaboration practice, gaining understanding of what your strengths, biases, blindspots and tendencies are.

  • opportunities to learn and experience new tools and processes from some of the most pioneering collaborative orgs in the world (Enspiral, Percolab, Pyxis, Amanitas)

  • a container to have critical conversations about the purpose and ethics of collaboration around the themes of inclusion and relationship-based ways of working

The Space Between Us will be an emergent agenda co-created by the participants. We'll start by diving into a discovery process to understand each other, why we're here and how we might serve the space between us in the most valuable and meaningful way.



Acknowledging that there are different levels of needs for participants, we've come up with two different packages for registration. If you feel like you need something else, we're happy to design that with you and negotiate a price. There are 11 places available for this retreat.


Suited for people who are familiar with co-creation and collective intelligence practices, confident to help hold the container for this event and bring their expertise to share. This price covers accommodation, food and a small overhead for logistics.


Suited for people who are looking for support in structuring their learning journey for the retreat and integration of these learnings back into their work context post-retreat. This price covers accommodation, food and a small overhead for logistics, plus a Zoom call before the retreat to understand learning objectives (and ensue they're woven into the retreat program), and two follow-up coaching sessions to talk through integrating the knowledge and practices post-retreat.

Note : We've kept the prices affordable to encourage participation from a diversity of people. There is no facilitation fee. If you wish to make a gift towards this event and the people running it by paying more (before or after the event) that is of course welcome.
