    To express your interest in attending this advanced workshop please email now.

    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.

    This workshop is for leaders and leadership coaches who are looking to become better able to thrive in the complexities currently challenging organisations and our world. Whether you are familiar with the ideas of complexity or just becoming acquainted, we will invite you to bring a personal challenge that you can work on while learning handy tools to help you explore the problem. By exploring the contexts in which we find ourselves, how we show up in them and act differently in them, we can make dramatic progress on challenges that we have been battling for some time.


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.
