How we approach our future in a world of uncertainty is more crucial than ever. We are here to help you with the tools needed to move forward in your desired direction.
Inner Island Online is a 6 weeks program created to guide you in shaping your future. This facilitator-led collaborative program starts on the 13th of January 2021 and is for those who are dedicated to establishing their next chapter in life yet not sure how to go about it.
We will connect weekly in 90 min live online sessions, bringing together a diverse and supportive community. The approach can be applied to both work-related goals and personal development.
Our 5-phase future design process will help to ground you and bring new insights, it will nurture clarity and establish new conditions for you to move forward in a meaningful direction.
“Inner Island is a space supporting you to reach your vision by allowing for vulnerability. It aligns your passions, visions and values to one force”.
– Javeria Rizvi Kabani (earlier participant)
Inner Island is a rare investment in yourself where you get the opportunity to identify and put the spotlight on the key challenges that are limiting you to rise above what you thought was possible. You will explore questions like “What is the challenge that would make the biggest difference for me if solved?”
Our methodologies come from transformation design, proactive planning, appreciative inquiry, strategy development, peer coaching and guided mindfulness meditation. At Inner Island, we combine viable methods from cutting edge business contexts with ancient wisdom practices. A diverse set of modalities and methodology is key to disrupt the thinking process and help gain new and unexpected perspectives that can lead to insight. The combination creates a holistic future design workshop to supercharge your development.

“More than 80 % of the world-class performers I’ve interviewed have some form of daily meditation or mindfulness practice. Both can be thought of as cultivating a present-state awareness that helps you to be nonreactive. It is a “meta-skill” that improves everything else”
The live workshop sessions will take place online weekly and during these, we will explore the 5 phases in the future design process.
Between these sessions, you will work individually using printable visual templates, gain support in your peer coaching groups, access curated material and work through tasks while receiving support from your online facilitator.
Each session starts with a short guided meditation. Basic meditation instructions and the science behind mindfulness will be provided. We continue by reflecting on the previous week. The session ends with method instructions and a Q&A to equip you with all the necessary materials for your work until our next online get-together. Later in the week, you will check in with your peer coaching groups, share insights, challenges and support.
As a participant, you need to dedicate a minimum of 4 h weekly for both group sessions and peer group coaching. The recommendation is to attend the 90 min weekly live session, dedicate 2 h of own work and 1 h of peer group coaching.
“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”
The future design process
Inner Island has been fine-tuned into a 5-phase future design process giving you the ultimate co-creation framework and the tools that allow you to explore and launch your dreams for a better self and a better world.
The program is built with a red thread from A-Z so you can experience a progression in your development and have tangible outcomes, such as an overall vision, a strategy, guiding values and action plans.
Look back to identify and understand your past successes. Familiarise yourself with your habits, strengths and positive values that brought you here. Create a realistic base for analyzing your current situation by tracking your strengths and weaknesses as well as the potential opportunities and threats you are facing in the future.
Your values reflect what is important to you. Together with your beliefs, values are the causal factors that drive your decision-making. In this stage, you define strategic values based on your past successes. You will also define your main challenges and learn how to turn them into positively framed questions that open up new possibilities.
Envision an attractive future by nurturing your dreams and ambitions beyond limits. If you believe that the future can be shaped by you, then why not create the most inspiring horizon right from the get-go? After this phase, you will have an inspiring vision which guides a clear and meaningful direction in life.
In this stage, you will develop various ideas of ways and approaches to reach your vision. You will acknowledge your contexts and stakeholders, and you will create the real-life next steps and stages transforming your vision into reality. You will be guided and coached to create a concrete plan of how to proceed from your current situation into your desired future.
Getting things done. This phase asks you to define and commit to a pilot project – the very first milestone of your journey towards your goals. The real-life pilot project is built on an upgraded understanding of habits, confidence and proactive dedication to reach the measurable outcomes.
