// TEAM & FACILITATION
FLUID TEAM PERSPECTIVE.
Even though names mentioned here represent those who carry main responsibility, the facilitation and organization is shared with a wider changing team. It’s a common practice in this program that participants become co-facilitators and co-organizers. Level of engagement is depending on their interests, experience and competencies. In fact this fluid team-structure and low barrier between hosts and guests is what makes this program unique. If you are curious to become involved upfront, let us know this during your application process.

CURATION & COMMUNICATION
Vanilla Way is a international network of purpose driven change enthusiasts, founded in 2010. Driven by meaning, Vanilla Way is bringing together areas of organizational development, project guidance and lifelong creative learning, in order to support purpose driven teams and networks, in setting their transformative powers free.
Vanilla Way operates as an Open Value Network. This means there is neither a CEO, nor a legal-institution in the center or around our organization. There are different existing legal organizations availalable in service to the network. The Collaboration Incubator is facilitated by Platform Coop SmartDe in Germany and the Institut for Evolutionary Leadership in the US.
Our organizational structure is based on trust and self-management. Trust is developed in community-events, during the self-on-boarding-process and by doing projects together. Shared direction is guided by shared purpose, vision and principles. Governance is work in progress.
