REGISTER NOW! 3rd Annual Gathering October 21-26, 2018 Babson Executive Conference Center


The Next Practice Institute (NPI) of Mobius Executive Leadership sponsors transformational training programs for our practitioners, partners, and clients. These programs operate at the nexus of “best practice” in such areas as organizational development, culture change, and adaptive leadership, and “next practice” in neuroscience, somatics, energy work, music, yoga, and other expressive/devotional arts.

Together we are creating a global community of practice devoted to the craft of transforming people into stronger leaders and building a better world for everyone.

Each year we conduct a week-long professional development immersion outside of Boston. The Annual Gathering brings together practitioners (including coaches, mediators, interventionists, and facilitators), business leaders, human resources and organizational development professionals, strategy and search consultants.

We come together for renewal, learning, inspiration, and practice.

The Annual Gathering is supplemented throughout the year with workshops, and an active practitioner portal to which we all contribute.

Natascha van Boetzelaer


Leaders who refuse to stray from the old path and the usual way of doing business are putting the entire organization at risk. It is no longer optional to build the organizational capability to problem solve and innovate for the digital age.

With companies struggling to go digital due to lack of cultural change, what can we as coaches, facilitators, senior executives and change leaders do to close the gap that exists between digital strategy and practice?

While there are principles and practices we know to bring to any organizational transformation, during this one-day session we double click on why digitization is so imperative and what makes it special.

Led by Natascha van Boetzelaer, head of the Global Digital Practice at Egon Zehnder, participants will leave the workshop with a wealth of insights and practical guidance covering:

  • Digital trends and why this topic is so important
  • The basics requirements of the digital transformation
  • Leadership in the digital age
  • Why hiring digital talent (from both within and beyond the organization) is different
  • The need to develop relatively young people into leaders at unprecedented speed
  • How to close the gap between what the business or organization does today and where it needs to innovate.

This special group session will help equip you to lead, coach or facilitate digital transformation in your or your client’s organization.


Throughout the week, several of our transformational faculty and healing practitioners will be available for one-on-one sessions. We are honored to have them with us, offering their gifts to this gathering.

Please indicate your interest in a session when you register for the program.

Individual sessions last 60 – 90 minutes and cost an additional $500 each.
