In Walk Out Walk On , we invite you on a learning journey to seven communities around the world to meet people who have walked out of limiting beliefs and assumptions and walked on to create healthy and resilient communities. These Walk Outs who Walk On use their ingenuity and caring to figure out how to work with what they have to create what they need.

Through the Art of Hosting, communities have conversations that matter using a core set of principles, such as setting intention, creating hospitable space, asking powerful questions, surfacing collective intelligence, trusting emergence, harvesting learning, and turning wisdom into action p. Methods like the World Cafe invite collective intelligence to flourish and creative action to emerge. The Art of Hosting not only changes the way we have conversations, but also challenges our idea of what it means to be a leader. Tuesday Ryan-Hart, one of the hosting leaders in the Columbus community, explains the difference between a heroic leader and hosting leader. After Columbus, we return home, perhaps where the real journey for all of us begins. Now the task remains for us to consider: how do we apply what we learned in this learning journey in our own lives, work and communities?
