Reflecting on four years of unhurried conversations

Wed, 04 Apr 2018 07:59:06 +0000

Since 2014 I have run over a hundred Unhurried Conversations. These use a simple talking-piece process to allow participants to take turns to speak without being interrupted. I run them most often in a cafe, where any member of the public can join in (organised on Viv and I also use the process in […]

Being Wrong

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 16:08:16 +0000

I watched this TED Talk by Kathryn Schulz yesterday: On Being Wrong. One thing stuck in my mind. Schulz asks a few people what it’s like to be wrong, and they reply – “dreadful, thumbs down, embarrassing”. Which makes sense until she points out that this is only what we feel when we discover that […]

Emotional debt

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 14:20:43 +0000

(Cross posted on Medium) Technical debt is a term used by programmers. Referring to the ever rising cost to projects when short term fixes get applied over time to writing code. Over time, these quick fixes make the overall design inefficient. We can all see how this applies to many projects outside programming. It’s like […]

Unhurried news

Fri, 05 May 2017 08:39:34 +0000

In the last three years I’ve run over a hundred Unhurried Conversations. Most of these have been open to the public, while others have been inside organisations as part of the work I’ve been doing with them. I ran them in Sydney and Auckland on a recent trip down under. Others are running here in […]

An update on unhurried at work…

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 13:22:10 +0000

Three years ago I first blogged about the idea of Unhurried. It emerged from a series of conversations with my friend Antony Quinn. We share an interest in improv theatre and were reflecting on scenes that were satisfying to take part in and watch – and those that weren’t. We realised that the best improv […]

Navigating a post-modern economy

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 22:42:04 +0000

Roland Harwood at 100% Open describes five vectors of our postmodern economy. We do seem to be living in confusing if interesting times, where the benefits of hyper-connectedness are coming into question. Roland refers to Tom Friedman’s division of web people and wall people, and offers five guiding ideas for how we cope with uncertainty. They are […]

Bohm and dialogue

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 11:39:14 +0000

I spent Friday at a meeting experimenting with holding a Dialogue, based on the ideas of David Bohm. I was invited by Peter Kajtar who has dedicated a large part of his life to exploring Bohm’s ideas. Bohm’s writing is dense and often hard to understand but I have always sensed his wisdom; the experience […]

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 12:56:15 +0000

Neil Perkin describes two contrasting talks about Fast and Slow in Marketing. Adam Morgan shares some interesting examples of businesses that thrive on speed: a 2014 Harris Poll.. found that 90% of respondents… expected real-time customer service from brands and as many as 48% expect that services will be delivered before they order them. ‘Uber’s children’, […]

Everybody is dealing with how much of their own aliveness they can bear and how much they need to anesthetize themselves — Adam Phillips Many of us complain that work meetings are predictable, frustrating and — most of all — a terrible drain on our limited time. In theory, organisations want their meetings to be full of life. In practice, not […]
