We would be delighted to welcome you to the Host Leadership Gathering 2023 in Vienna, Austria. Together, we will have three days full of inspiration, co-creation, learning, acting, observing and reflecting about the brea(d)th, impact and meaning of Hosting and Host Leadership in your working environments.
“I am very much looking forward to the Host Leadership Gathering where I will no doubt resonate with others attending to grow my knowledge and practice of host leadership, which very much aligns to my own values. I know the Gathering will be hugely beneficial for all that attend.”
Hosting is an ancient yet modern art to build relationships with others. The act of inviting someone, of welcoming them, of responding to their needs whilst taking responsibility for their safety offers a frame through which many dimensions of leadership can be viewed.
Think of yourself as a host, and the others involved as your guests. Imagine, how this idea will change behaviour.
One of the most important aspects of leading as a host is the art of stepping forward – and then stepping back. People expect leaders to step forward – after all, that is how they get attention, get their message across, begin to engage with people. Good hosts know, however, that it is equally important to step back, to allow space for others to engage, for people to connect, for multiple conversations to develop. When good leaders step back, they are not simply vanishing from the scene. They are alert, aware, looking around, talking to different groups, seeing how things are going. That is how they know when to step forward again, and in which role.
In Host Leadership, we talk about roles (instead of rules). A role is something you take on when needed and hosts change roles often, depending on the circumstances. The six roles are: Initiator – getting things moving, Inviter – involving others, Space Creator – building the context for interaction, Gatekeeper – negotiating the boundaries, Connector – link people and expertise together and, of course, Co-Participator – leading AND joining in.

Day one is all about sharing practice reports and inspiration. We are looking forward to great short talks and workshops from people who use the host model in their daily lives and talk about their experiences and approaches. If you are willing to contribute actively, we invite your ideas.
If you wish, we enjoy the first evening of the gathering together. The dinner takes place at your own expense to keep the ticket price low, and we are happy to organize a nice restaurant for all of us who want to join.
On the second day, we provide the castle, the park and a lot of materials so that you can discuss, create and talk about your personal fields of application and ideas with the other participants. We are already looking forward to this colourful and lively Open Space day.
Be our guest in the beautiful Miller-Aichholz Palace in Vienna from June 12th-13th, 2023.
If you come early and have time and interest on Sunday to spend another day with us, the sinnvollFÜHREN team invites you to visit the beautiful zoo Schönbrunn.
It was founded by the Habsburgs in 1752 and is the oldest zoo in the world. In Anthony Sheridan’s zoo ranking, the zoo was named as the best European zoo five times in a row (2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2018).
We would get a guided tour there at 10am and of course also visit our “foster kids”, the rock penguins. The tour takes about 2 hours. Afterwards you can – as long as you want – have a free look around the Tiergarten all day long.
