Transforming Leadership: Women, Men, Power and Potential (Tokyo Lab)

29 August 2017 to 31 August 2017

A multi-stakeholder dialogue process, this learning event engaged the participants in creating a safe learning environment to explore one another’s perspectives, to look at their leadership challenges in new ways, to reflect, and to be inspired. The Tokyo Lab is the third and final face-to-face session with participants who began the leadership journey in the Cambodia Lab in November 2016 and the Berlin Lab in March 2017. Thus, the Tokyo Lab was designed with a dual purpose: The first goal was to enable participants to demonstrate a level of mastery in applying the concepts, approaches, and tools in negotiation and message framing learned in the Berlin Lab to a common case, Negotiating Strategic Change. The second goal was to provide participants with Open Space sessions that they will lead and shape so that by the end of the Tokyo Lab, all participants would have had the opportunity to clarify the leadership challenges they wish to pursue post-Tokyo and to work with a subset of the participants, or individually, to further refine their project goals and develop a workplan, timeline, budget.
