Sustainable Learning Revolutions

How foundations, trusts and NGOs can deepen their learning to create greater impact together I wonder if a few hundred years from now people will look back at our time and think: Hey, that's when we really started to learn. I don't mean...

Change through nature: a 24-hour solo in the wild

In their book ‘Presence’, learning professionals Peter Senge, Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski and Betty Flowers discuss the power of doing ‘solos’ in nature. A length of time spent alone in nature; an ancient ritual that rediscovered for its transformative power. In this account, Jaworski...

Shifting perspectives: from Organisations to ‘Organisings’

To be a true learning company, it is a risk to hold the perspective of being an organisation. Because an organisation might be seen as static – a single unmoving way of being. To perceive yourself as an organisation suggests you may perceive fixed boundaries and rules. From here it becomes easier to build or hold barriers within and around you, restricting what you are and how you operate and how you move with the world. This is risky in a world that calls for creative, nimble and adaptive ways of working. We suggest that to be a true learning organisation, capable of swifter adaptation and movement, it is helpful to explore the perspective of being an organising. Organising is a term we are framing to provoke this way of being – always fluid, moving, learning, adapting. It illustrates the distinction between perspectives of static states and fluidity. And it is a verb: showing that it is work in progress.

Creative Perspectives on Knowledge Management

In March 2011, I had the pleasure of being invited by Nancy Dixon in Washington DC - joining two other Knowledge Management stars Nick Milton and Karl Wiig – on a ‘Deep Dive’ to support international health organisations in Knowledge Management. It was a fantastic workshop with great learning and connections made. Here I sum up some of the ideas I shared (you can also download the pdf file here). On the importance of story, play, imagination and visioning.

Playful Perspectives

Playful Perspectives

More and more of today's organisations and communities are developing ever more inspiring ways of making a difference. This is being made possible by mavericks and front runners – amazing leaders and influencers in the places we live and work. Often, this comes from a new way of working: bringing in new perspectives around imagination, vision, playfulness and orchestration. This is not management or change as we know it – it is about making movement in a completely different way.
