We’re designing it out loud rather than presenting the final design with a big fanfare, as we’d like participants to be involved in the design itself.
We’re calling it The Practice.
It’s for anyone whose work depends on working with people – managers, leaders, coaches, facilitators. It will be an opportunity to go a bit deeper into your own professional practice. We’re going to focus on leaning into difficulty, in whatever form that comes for you – maybe difficult people, organisational stress, questions about career direction…
We’re not coming to this with fixed techniques and activities in mind. We’ll start by finding out what’s at issue for everyone coming, and we’ll then create a programme live, in response to what’s in the room. We’re not expecting to be teaching, but we are going to use activities and conversations to help everyone explore their own edges.
We want this to be a real community when it meets, in which we learn together rather than claiming expertise or magic answers.
If you’ve done your share of conventional training and want something more interesting, challenging and experiential, this could be for you.
It’s going to be from the evening of November 20th to the afternoon of the 22nd with accommodation for two nights included. We’re still determining the venue but it will be comfortable, inspiring and not too far from London.
If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you. We’re going to develop the plan in conversation with anyone who’s intrigued or excited about coming. We can talk about costs, too.
Let me know if you’re interested in hearing more.
