    Expanding Client Horizons Openly

    Wellington, New Zealand

    November 16-18, 2018

    For those who have attended Conversations at the Growing Edge. This workshop moves from the practice of tentatively exploring your clients’ developmental sensemaking to actually having explicit conversations with your clients about their Growth Edge and whether and how to grow into a new developmental place. We also explore the practice of uncovering “tethers”—those assumptions, beliefs, or practices that hold back our sensemaking (and thus our actions) from a new set of possibilities.

The information and experience I've gained during this training feels critical to my future work at the Foundation and to becoming more thoughtful, functional, deliberate and connected to my teams and colleagues. I want to reiterate how much I appreciate the culture of career/personal development we have been nurturing, and give a special shout-out to this curriculum and facilitators. The Foundation and the world would be a much easier place to navigate and interact if everyone had the chance to have this experience.
