IMN 2016


“The Immersion with Alex McManus was like nothing I had expected. It was one of the most intense, demanding, and deeply challenging experiences I’ve ever had. I’ve never generated as many creative ideas in as many days as I did that week. Immersion is exactly the word to describe the experience.”

Mark Juane

The Certificate in STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP will focus on developing an understanding of how to think about the future, how to stay abreast of trends, how to look for weak signals of change, paradigms and how they can be tools to guide change or obstacles that can derail change. Five “trend spotting” scan hits will be required for certification.

No group of people would benefit more from a future-orientation than people of faith. Yet few people are as oriented towards the past as people serving within a church context. Ancient books, ancient creeds, ancient practices are a necessary part of the tradition. It benefits us to know how we got here. But we must push further…

The M network exists to orient those of you who are immersed in history towards futurity. You know where we came from, now its time to figure out where we’re going. IMN 2015 is designed specifically to help you expand your imagination, develop your personal creativity, ground your personal development within a future-oriented peer community, and deepen your “complexipacity” (i.e. your capacity to work with complexity).


As a team Herman DuPlessis (SA), Geoffrey Baines (UK), and Alex McManus (USA) assist leaders to make this shift. They partner within the M network and help our faith clients to think in new ways about problems, deliver innovative solutions, and, in the language of M, make the world human. Utilizing decades of industry experience and functional expertise within both the business world and faith-movement circles, M goes beyond the norm to develop new insights and help you become the change you want to see in the world.
