THE GLOBAL CHANGE INCUBATOR

A 10-month in depth professional journey for

current and aspiring leaders

of social and systemic change.

 
 

AN INCUBATOR DESIGNED TO UNCOVER THE CAPACITY OF OUR MINDS TO CREATE INDIVIDUAL, COMMUNITY, AND SYSTEMIC CHANGE.

The current state of the world is a reflection of the state of our minds. In order to change the state of the world we must first understand what's behind the state of our minds. That's why this incubator focuses solely on catalyzing a leaders' ability to uncover the capacity of our minds to create individual, community, and systemic change.

WHEN WE CHANGE, SYSTEMS CHANGE

We currently have systems in place that are not meeting the needs of the humans in which they were designed to serve.


When we see the link between our minds and our collective thought systems, organizations, politics and social constructs, we can use that knowledge and insight to create a new world. 

UNCOVERING SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS

The Global Change Incubator will take an in-depth look at how the human mind is designed and works for us all and how a deeper understanding naturally creates a solution-based environment within each individual. With that, change is accelerated and scaled into society and the world.

2. SHADOWING WORK IN REAL-TIME

This part of the incubator gives you an opportunity to experience how change happens from seeing it first hand. We have found that learning through observation solidifies the insights from the modules. You will get to sit in on actual trainings and workshops, and debrief with our faculty.

REAL WORK

Go from theory to reality by seeing change happen in practice. Discover how transformation occurs in schools, prison systems, and with youth, families, and communities by observing programs as they happen and asking questions in real-time.

BEHIND THE SCENES

Observe the inner workings of organizations and how to create impact by focusing on the mind as the catalyst for change. The three organizations of the IOS Collective will be an “open book” for you to learn from throughout the incubator journey.

World Class Virtual Experience

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Global Change Incubator will be offered entirely online and will add in-person experiences when possible, based on CDC recommendations. 

The organizations that comprise the IOS Collective have had ample experience adapting our programs to run virtually and will create a dynamic and interactive online experience. We do not just do typical zooms. We do high quality virtual experiences.
