As a gift from our mate Phil Cass (click on: The Art of Calling) and the Columbus Medical Association / Foundation here is the first evaluation report made on the effect of the 6 Art of Hosting trainings that has happened in Columbus since March 2005 with almost 200 leaders. If you are interested in the whole process from 2005 till now, all harvest reports are available online!
You can find the report for uploading now in our Community Library (see link in the left orange sidebar). read more »

In the hosting team it felt high time to open the space.
In silence we invited people to contemplate on the question: What do I need to take my next level of pioneering?
I guess some 20 sessions were posted and the marketplace was immediately filled with life and negotations about timing etc. I can't mention all the sessions, but I offer here the harvest of the day.
Maria and Filiz had offered a Harvest Poster, with on

We had intended this day to be with some silence, as we are entering the bottom of the U.
