Autumn School

Knowmads Autumn School Spain 2018

Oct. 29th – Nov. 2nd

Spots still available. *Max 12 participants*

Find your freedom in the Spanish Pyrenees! Escape for five days to the Spanish Pyrenees for an embodied leadership & entrepreneurship program. Hike, mountain bike, design your new path as a professional or self-employed individual, and prototype the first steps on that path. Learn the tools and mindset to facilitate the transition to your dream life or career. 

After Amsterdam, Milan, and Lisbon, we now go into nature with Knowmads Autumn School 2018. Here in the Spanish Pyrenees, we will facilitate you through an embodied Leadership and Entrepreneurship week.

Every time you start something new, you have to deal with the uncertainty of not knowing where you will end up. At our seasonal Schools, we guide you through the first steps of changing your career, becoming an entrepreneur, or approaching your life in a more entrepreneurial way.

These five days will help you get a better understanding of your key values and qualities. We facilitate you into freedom and offer tools to apply directly to your personal and professional life.

We will use different forms of learning and different experience-based learning tools such as:

  • Theory U
  • Embodied Learning (hiking/mountain biking)
  • Business Model Canvas/Startup wheel
  • Leadership and Management workshop
  • Getting Things Done
  • Relationship to Your Limits & Blockages
  • Prototyping & Design Thinking.

What is U.Lab?

Through four live sessions and four community cafes (co-working sessions), you will address today’s challenges in an integrated way, developing and implementing practical solutions. Learn an awareness-based innovation process and brainstorm in a community of changemakers like you to tackle issues you’re passionate about.
U.lab 1x introduces Theory U, a framework and methodology that individuals, teams, organizations, and even larger social systems can use to respond to disruptive change with compassion, curiosity, and courage. U.lab 1x runs for 13 weeks; it’s a MOOC (massive, open, online course) as well as an awareness-based innovation process on-site here at Knowmads.

It is designed for anyone who seeks to affect change and work together towards this goal by:

  • Learning about Theory U;
  • Joining a global community of changemakers;
  • Addressing today’s challenges in an integrated way;
  • Developing and implementing practical solutions to the issues we are dealing with.

Should you join U.Lab?

This is an invitation to all who resonate with this call. You are a social changemaker that wants to make a difference in this world. You want to be a part of a community that comes together, empowers one another, and co-creates. You are eager to learn and develop yourself and you want to be a part of a bigger network that learns and grows together.

The first live session was September 13th.

Welcome to: A Day at Knowmads

Jan. 18th, 2019

The Knowmads program, condensed into 1 day!

A Day at Knowmads
The full-length program is 6 months, but we are happy to introduce the second ‘A Day at Knowmads’. Here, the most essential parts of the program are distilled into an unforgettable one-day Knowmads experience.

Knowmads is an intensive learning journey about leadership and entrepreneurship for young professionals who want to make a positive difference in the world. During this educational program, participants reconnect with themselves and their dreams and find out how to make them happen. They learn in tribes of like-minded international people and work on their own projects or startups.

The program is designed around the regular program’s five main questions:

  • Who am I?
  • In what world do I want to live?
  • What do I want to contribute/change?
  • How do I create the organization/project to get it done?
  • How do I bring it into the world?

Are you a young professional who wants to make an impact? This one-day Knowmads experience will kick off your journey.

*Lunch is included.
Link to purchase tickets coming soon!
