Attending to Your Worldview: The Key to Making Change Successfully


Online Workshop | Oct 25, 2022 | 9 am – 12:30 pm EDT / 15:00 – 18:30 CEST (also available for self-study)

A worldview, simply defined, is a collection of values, attitudes, beliefs, and expectations that inform thoughts and actions. Your worldview is a big component of what shapes your reality. As a leader, you bring your worldview into your organizational development – shaping your organization according to your worldview too. The better you understand your worldview and the worldview of the people you work with, the more positive the outcomes of your work are likely to be.

  • Explore common worldviews and how they can shape your leadership and your organization
  • Develop a more clear understanding of your personal worldview so that you can begin aligning your leadership with your worldview…and experience more joy and ease
  • Learn to use a simple tool to clarify the worldview of others you are working with and how you can find alignment for better working together from your unique perspectives

When you consciously understand your worldview and those of the people you work with, conflict is reduced, decision-making becomes easier to consciously set out a collective path to the future in your organization. Give yourself the gift of time to make conscious this (often) unconscious driving force in organizational life so that as you shift and change, you always this powerful orientation point.

Your Facilitators

Doris Gottlieb, workshop facilitatorDoris Gottlieb has been an authorized Genuine Contact Trainer since 2011  and Co-Owner.  She has worked for 20 + years following her fascination with people and organizations. In that regard, she has worked in varied sectors from education to industry, from non-profits to commercial ventures.  Through it all, she has remained convinced that when people put their minds and hearts together they have capacity for great good. Her belief in people and their inherent beauty is what attracted her to Genuine Contact™ and once she began to work this way, she was hooked seeing how it elegantly taps into human capacity to create conditions in which people thrive. By creating life-nurturing processes, practices, structures, and developing the conduct that enables people to work in ways that honor life and nature Genuine Contact has just been a wonderful framework within which to approach organizational challenges.

Doris has a special interest in working with grief, as she has found that so many of her clients struggle with the effects of unrecognized grief within their organizations and personal lives.  It has been a special benefit of working with Genuine Contact to have structure, processes, and methods that allow for grief to become something that is acknowledged as part of the complex life of an organization.
