Course Description

This course is for leaders, managers, organisational consultants and change agents who wish to develop their theoretical, practical and personal skills to lead and facilitate transformative change in an increasingly volatile and complex world.

The Programme

This programme offers a unique opportunity to join a learning community that focuses upon the development of inspiring leadership and facilitation - in the service of co-creating the future. It offers the opportunity to find and develop our unique voice as leaders, managers and change agents; to gain confidence, presence and personal power; and to work with transformative processes in order to create breakthrough in groups, businesses, communities, large systems and the wider field.

The programme addresses the challenges of leading, managing, facilitating and consulting in the midst of an increasingly volatile, unpredictable and complex world. It features a relational and creative approach to organisational and field development. It actively explores the systemic interconnections between organisation and field and enquires into the roles and responsibilities of both individuals and business towards the field and the future. 

The Style

We create a learning community which is participative and experimental. Participants include both experienced and less experienced practitioners. The experienced practitioners learn from the fresh approach of the less experienced, while the inexperienced practitioners learn from the wisdom of the experienced. Everyone contributes. Everyone learns.

 
The programme offers a rich mix of:

* Immersive learning.

* Skills development and holistic practice during and between modules.

* Feedback on personal presence, leadership and facilitation.

* Creative assignments, theory and presentation.

* Case studies and illustrative stories.

Innovative examples: during each module we will invite young or innovative practitioners to share pioneering practice and join us for an evening of creative dialogue. 

The Practice

People often attend wonderful training programmes and then go back to their workplace and discover that nothing has changed. We have learnt that the key to helping people really gain confidence and power is to support them to practice their new learning and insights. So from day one, we encourage participants to:

* Practice in pairs, small groups and larger groups within the training sessions.

* Practice powerful public speaking, leadership, management, facilitation and/or consultancy in between modules.

* Tell stories of the practice they have undertaken.

* Develop a culture of practice and active learning.

* Grow in confidence, energy and personal power as they integrate theory into practice.

The Philosophy

While the course draws upon the whole field of organisational and field transformation, it specialises in systemic, Gestalt and Complexity approaches to leadership, consultancy and change. It thus emphasises:

* The impact of the wider field upon the organisation and the reciprocal impact of the organisation upon the wider field.

* The creativity of working with emergent, self-organising and planned approaches to change.

* The power of attending to the phenomena of the actual experience in the here and now.

* The simplicity of conversation and the innovative possibilities that emerge between people who engage in creative dialogue.

* The wisdom of the interconnected field surrounding the events.

* A holistic and systemic approach to leadership, management, consultancy and change.

* A radical new understanding of the pressing needs for transformative change in organisations and the wider field.

* Inquiry into the meaning, purpose and responsibilities of individual and business life as well as how to bring consciousness of these different dimensions into our practice as transformative leaders and change agents.
