SVI 365 Workshop: Shift your mindset for empowered action (Online)

With Hollyhock Leadership Institute, Chloe Gow-Jarrett and Vanessa Richards

November 24, 2021

“SVI is an amazing catalyst for any social venture. This amazing community of people will inspire you, give you gifts you never expected and point you in new directions. Don’t miss out!” – SVI Virtual 2020 participant 

Leading an organization or business through constant uncertainty can be deeply uncomfortable. Many leaders feel disempowered, stuck, confused, and exhausted, impacting their ability to take intentional action. In this workshop, explore where you consciously and unconsciously blame other people or situations (ahem, COVID) for your circumstances, deferring responsibility while reducing your ability to confidently and effectively lead your organization. Join Chloe for an inquiry into the professional (and sometimes personal) places where your reaction to circumstances compromises your innate strength, and begin to experience the powerful freedom of your creative choice.

“SVI is a community of humble, resilient, extraordinary leaders seeking to make this world better. The knowledge sharing, and encouragement that happens at SVI gatherings is like nothing I’ve experienced before in my professional life.  I am so grateful to have found this powerful community” – SVI Virtual Participant

Social Venture Institute 365

For over 25 years, attending the Social Venture Institute (SVI) conference at Hollyhock has been a rite of passage for mission-driven entrepreneurs. It is hard to convey the impact that SVI has had not only on the lives and businesses of the 3,000+ people who have attended, but on the very landscape of social enterprise in Canada.

More than a conference, SVI is a movement, with the reach and influence to plant seeds with like-minded, interconnected people. SVI shapes sectors by normalizing progressive, sustainable, and equitable business practices. Participants are exposed to ideas that inform their own operations, rippling out to impact the broader business world. 

Join SVI 365 to enjoy bite-sized morsels of the best of Social Venture Institute year-round: real-time problem-solving, inspiring stories, and above all, the opportunity to connect with like-minded leaders seeking to make positive change through venture.

Each session features facilitated networking, core content, and opportunities to deepen your connection to the social venture ecosystem.
