    Transformation Summit

    Montpellier, France – June 27, 2019


    The Handbook of Personal and Organizational Transformation, edited by Judi Neal and published by SpringerNature, was published in two volumes in July 2019. In August 2019, SpringerNature hosted a gathering of Handbook authors at the Academy of Management in Chicago, and they also hosted a one-day Transformation Summit at their offices in October in Manhattan, New York.  It was clear that a "Transformation Community" was emerging organically. The purpose of these gatherings is to foster dialogue, new thinking, connections, and potential writing projects between leading-edge thinkers and practitioners doing transformation work at the individual, team, systems and global levels.  Each of these experiences has been rich and inspiring.


    Our planning team has organized a FREE one-day Transformation Summit that will be a pre-conference session before the Spirituality, Development and Transformation Conference in Montpellier, France.  The purpose of this gathering is to continue the work we did at the New York Transformation Summit, with greater input from our European colleagues.  I invite you to join us on June 27, 2019 to come and share your latest thinking and your big questions about the field of transformation. 


    You are also invited to attend the Spirituality, Development and Transformation Conference which is being held June 28-29.


    We will primarily be using an Open Space Technology approach to the design of the Transformation Summit, which allows for greater participation and deeper sharing and exploration of important ideas and approaches.
