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.

Was Steve Jobs a master of transforming sacred cows into purple cows? How might you do that too?
I'd love to know what you think. Leave me a comment.

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

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.
I have turned down all work that involves flying since then, but without being up-front about this. I say I’m unavailable or “I’m sure…

As you may have noticed, I’m a process aficionado.
I love to hear about innovative ways of helping people have the conversations they need. I love to try out new processes as a facilitator and a participant. I network with fellow facilitators Continue
through AMED as well as the IAF and a facilitators’ group on linked-in. I read about unorthodox approaches, and…

Frequently, my work involves large group workshops and teams of willing volunteers acting as support facilitators. They may be drawn from the client team or from the wider consultant team. They are often technical specialists or traditional communications specialists, and sometimes – but not always - they have facilitation experience.
In a recent workshop, I was faced with quite a challenge:
* Up to 50 participants who we’d invited to help with the larger project;
* A… Continue

For the past six months, I've been writing notes to myself to review and probably close my Survey Monkey account. I opened my 'paid for' account in July 2008 with the thought that I would create lots of great surveys that would enhance my business and I've been dutifully paying the $29.90/month (or what ever that's worked out to with the $/£ exchange rate). With all of the energy I keep using to remember that I need to review my account and writing myself a note - I could have sorted this out… Continue

I'm organising a conference for the middle of this year around the themes of creativity and collaboration, focusing on the engineering and built environment sector. The intention is to create an experiential opportunity for those involved in the industry (and those who may not be directly involved) to feel a truly collaborative and creative project.
