Complexity Fitness Workshop for International Aid and Peace Professionals, Barcelona, Spain, 3/23-26/20

My colleague Marie Pace is offering the Complexity Fitness workshop (see outline below) designed to help aid and peace professionals to become better fit to navigate the challenges that we face in a world that is becoming increasingly volatile and unpredictable. It weaves cutting edge theory, research and practice that has been proven to help leaders in becoming the best possible versions of themselves as they work to address overwhelming challenges. 


Cultivating Leadership – the hosting group – works with leaders and organizations around the world to help them adapt and thrive in a changing world. The Barcelona International Peace Center (BIPC) will be hosting the workshop. The Center offers a range of training courses aimed to meet the needs of professionals working in peacebuilding, complex crisis management, and humanitarian aid. It was the Barcelona City Council that first created BIPC.
