They’ve seen it before…

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 16:31:27 +0000

Everyone is used to being sold to. And they’re also used to being facilitated. They often feel the same way about both. I keep reminding myself of this, to inoculate myself about getting attached to any method or process. For instance, one of the simple ways I used to get attention when large groups of […]

Not chasing outcomes

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 10:31:25 +0000

One of the joys of working with Viv is seeing how she can strip back processes to what feel like essentials. It’s not often I work with someone who can match me for wanting to simplify things – I think we both believe we should let the participants do complex things rather than being the […]

Throwing away

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 07:16:56 +0000

Chris Corrigan highlights two quotations on writing. The first is from Jeanette Winterston: Creativity is inexhaustible. Experiment, play, throw away. Above all be confident enough about creativity to throw stuff out. If it isn’t working, don’t cut and paste – scrap it and begin again. This really lands with me. I think being willing to just throw […]

The blooper reel

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 06:24:13 +0000

There’s a lot of creative energy in failure, if you don’t take it too seriously. Here are some of the out-takes from our recent video shoot. In some ways it tells you more about how Viv and I work than the official version. Quite a lot of of our training work uses rapid, playful failure […]

Facilitation training

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 05:50:04 +0000

While Viv was over last month, we had time to shoot a new video about our facilitation training and drop in some footage from our Cambridge workshop. Here’s the result:

Creativity as rehearsal

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 06:37:46 +0000

Viv pointed me to this video which is a great introduction to how we can use the ideas of improv theatre to support creativity and change.

The end of ugly

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 16:12:52 +0000

(cross-posted from Medium) I’m planning a new workshop with my friend Alan Moore, inspired by his new book: Do Design: Why Beauty is Key to Everything We’ll be asking: could your business be beautiful? And if so, what would it look like? How would it work? You might at first baulk at this: surely in […]

Failure and learning

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 16:11:55 +0000

Donald Clark has a useful post on the role of failure in learning. He contrasts the airline industry, which scrutinises and learns from failure to create safety, with HR convention: We wallow in the world of gifted programmes, summative assessment for selection, lectures, essays, talent management…. The world of learning is a failure factory, not […]

Michelangelo to Motorbikes

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 08:05:16 +0000

I’m running a new workshop with my friend Alan Moore. Crafting Beautiful Businesses is on 27 September in London. The words beauty and business sound an unlikely pairing. Business is about hard facts, isn’t it? And beauty, that’s for artists and aesthetes isn’t it? How could the idea of beauty have much to do with […]

Unhurried Leadership

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 10:42:16 +0000

I like the idea of unhurried leadership. I’ve written about it on the Unhurried website and I thought I’d share it here too. I have to admit to disliking simple formulae for managing complex things, so I apologise for this five part list. It’s not intended as gospel truth, as I’m sure you could address […]
