‘Leadership has focused primarily on getting things done…by focusing…on the intellectual and pragmatic aspects of our work, we forget that a movement can only be successful when people have genuine relationships in which they feel valued and empowered’ (Zimmerman et al. (2010) Movement Strategy Centre)
This active enquiry will consist of 3 full-day workshops held in London in March, April and May 2013. The workshops are a connected series and the cost of attending all three workshops is £100. The workshop outcomes will also feed into the Tasting the Future assembly to be held on the 20th May.
- Fields for Transformation – at the level of movement building, societal and personal transformation, what can we learn from Field Theory, as put forward by biologist Rupert Sheldrake? How can we apply this thinking to our work and personal practice? The workshop will be led by Linda Mitchell and Sarah Whiteley.
- Skills for Transformation – what skills do we need to practice that will help to build relationships and put into practice the change we wish to see? What creative skills and practices can strengthen our work together? This workshop will be led by Niamh Carey,Alison Freeman, Draeyk van der Horn and Liane Fredericks.
- Mindfulness for Transformation – how can we sustain our involvement in this work? How can we develop a new approach to leadership through our own personal practice? Inspired by the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn and others, we will explore how an approach of personal awareness and mindfulness can positively strengthen our relationships with others. This workshop will be led by Rachel Lilley.
