Responsive is Beautiful: How to Transform Your Organization from the Inside Out

Masterclass
Residents

A Resident-only masterclass by House community partner TheDive
Participation is limited to 15 Residents

How can we shape organizations as living systems, rather than functional, abstract structures? What's the right dose of hierarchy and self-organization, and how much leadership and process is necessary to thrive and sustain over time?


In our first masterclass, hosted by our community partner and Berlin Chamber host TheDive, you will get your hands dirty. Put your philosophical reflections aside and get started with concrete methods, tools, and processes, following “The Loop Approach,” an overarching framework that puts the “how” into practice.

  • Dive deeply into “The Loop Approach”
  • Learn about 7 virtues of effective organizations and their models
  • Gain insights into exercises that help shape new behavioral patterns and a reflective mindset within your team
  • Exchange with fellow Residents to learn from another

Interested to participate? Please email us.

A More Literate World

Living Room Session
Public

We have to take reading more seriously. Over her extraordinary career, scholar and teacher Maryanne Wolf, director of the Center for Dyslexia, Diverse Learners, and Social Justice, and author of multiple books, including Reader, Come Home, has shown persuasively that so much of what we enjoy in society—from companionship to critical thinking to democracy itself—is nurtured by deep reading.

Over the course of an in-depth conversation with Maryanne Wolf, hosted by Megan Hustad and Tim Leberecht, in this Living Room Session, we will explore the inner workings of our reading brain, the fringes of business jargon, and how to properly understand the changes that digital mediums are forcing on us individually and collectively.

Extended Reality (XR) Ethics

Living Room Session
Public
toggle button

Extended Reality (or short, XR) is the umbrella term for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies. Augmented or immersive experiences raise critical issues of identity and physical and psychological integrity, and serve as focal lenses for essential ethical conundrums of digital technology in general. What can we learn about the human condition in XR? How can we create XR experiences that are conscious and inclusive? And specifically, what are the ethical frameworks we need to develop to that effect?

We hosted a special Living Room Session by the House of Beautiful Business in partnership with IEEE, featuring journalist, historian, and podcast host Kent Bye; Monique Morrow, the president and co-founder of Humanized Internet, a non-profit with a focus on digital identity and ethics in technology; and tech ethicist Mathana.

Hosted by Monika Jiang, Tim Leberecht, and John C. Havens, executive director of The IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems.

Can Beauty Still Save the World?

Living Room Session
Residents

Beauty was once an intrinsic value used to describe the ultimate ambition for what humanity could be: the good life was a beautiful life. Today, beauty’s deeper meaning seems lost to all but a handful of philosophers and art historians.

This public Living Room Session called for a new aesthetic, emotional, and ethical movement to place beauty back at the center of our lives. With Candida Gertler, co-founder of the Outset Contemporary Art Fund and theVOV; Udo Kittelmann, former director of the Nationalgalerie in Berlin and artistic director of the Museum Frieder Burda; Shakti Maira, author of The Promise of Beauty and Why It Matters; Corinne Loperfido, founder of the feminist interactive arts group Pussy Power House and creator of Meow Wolf's "Trash Temple;" Marsha Meredith, former creative director at Aesop; and as special guest multi-instrumentalist, singer, and composer Peter Broderick.

Hosted by Tim Leberecht, co-founder of the House of Beautiful Business, and Morgwn Rimel, head of brand and creative, House of Beautiful Business.
