Practice Groups

So often in learning, I see people who are really good at theory but not so much at the practice.

I’m starting to offer online workshops where we lean into experiential learning and experimentation, rather than me trying to teach recipes and formulae.

I’m developing these on three themes. Immersed in Story runs for a second time this November. I’m hosting a new Unhurried Practice Group with Jordan Soliday starting this autumn. And I’m also planning a group with the working title of Leadership as Performance. Email me to find out more.


Too much training fills our head with abstractions but learning is bound up with the adventure of experience


We're not machines, what we do is expressed in our bodies not just our heads and words


Learning rooted in live issues for participants, not teaching idealised abstractions based on other businesses and industries


Some of the most powerful development happens when we learn from our experiences of each other


Nothing sustains a willingness to grow more than feeling the difference, sooner rather than later
