The Paradoxical Theory of Change

At a workshop or a conference, some people arrive pumped-up and enthusiastic to get involved. These are often the organisers, though perhaps a few participants are up for it too. Others are cagier or more reluctant. What strategies do we have for managing this array of different states in which people will arrive?
Much depends on what you ask them to do – and when. Timing is crucial. There may be an activity at the start to which as a… Continue

Here's a link to my latest blog about the visual results of that process: Making shift happen!

We had a well attended event on Friday 19 October 2012 at Roots & Shoots in south London. David Sharman and I enjoyed presenting our ideas about influencing change using metaphors and stories.
Participants were introduced to Walt Disney's Creative Strategy and challenged to parallel process the three roles: the dreamer; the realist and the critic (or wise observer… Continue

In the margins of many academic conferences poster presentations are well established means of communication. There are well established conventions, templates and guidelines. I am not aware, however, of poster presentations being used in leadership development programmes and I wonder if other AMED members have experience of this application of what can be, after all, a highly effective, completely original and very flexible form of communication.

I was reminded horribly of our different attitudes to risk a few days ago, when we were roused just after 7.00 by a strange sound.
Turns out the wonderful man who's been cleaning windows in our street for over 15 years had fallen while washing our neighbour's windows.
A--- was lying there in next-door's front garden, his arm bent rather alarmingly under him.… Continue

As we wait for the details of the Comprehensive Spending Review it is clear that government departments, firms and individuals will have to respond and adapt to “new “ challenges.

Last time I flew for work was in 2007, running a workshop in the Netherlands. I had tried to find a way to go by boat and train, but couldn’t make the timings fit in with other commitments. The last time I flew for pleasure was so long ago that I can’t remember.
