In every human endeavour there is a vital role of holding the space for the organisation’s purpose and values. The seminal organisational thinker, Peter Koenig, calls this The Role of Source. Working consciously with this role is a powerful way to develop progressive, purposeful organisations.


Now that I’ve encountered Peter Koenig’s thinking, I have better words for what I called ‘holding the space’, which includes channeling the organization’s purpose.” - Frederic Laloux, author of Reinventing Organizations.

Online Facilitated Workshop


This is a Facilitated Online Workshop, so come prepared to participate! In this two-hour session, Tom will introduce a powerful lens to look at the creative initiative that underpins every organisation, centred on the Role of Source. Then we’ll cover some key principles about making use of it in practice. You'll have the chance to discuss your situation, stories and questions during break-out groups as well as group Q&A with Tom.


This session is an introduction to the topic. We will create future opportunities to deepen mastery in the role of source for participants who are interested in going deeper.
