Circle Time

Lily was worried. The group was not what it used to be. ‘I don’t want to be told, “Oh that’s lovely” or “I really like it.” That’s not what I go for. I go to be stretched, challenged, to get better at it. That’s not happening any more. I’m stagnating.

Disclosing

Paul introduced me to them in Costa last week. Over a cup of green tea. A cup, fit for a tall latte rather than hot water the colour of a pale pea. I had a feeling I’d met them before, in Newcastle years ago. Was it Tony Wright who had

Pruning

I’m cutting. And cutting. Cutting back to allow for new growth. Cutting to stop wasting energy. To stop momentum going in the wrong direction, to the wrong place, at the wrong time. It’s hard to find the right place to cut because there so much and it’s all tangled up.

Train of Thought

I know a few things. I’ve always enjoyed reading, gathering information, research and evidence. I suppose I could say I love learning – figuring things out, learning new skills, taking courses and filling myself with facts, figures, models and theories. I’ve learned an immeasurable and often forgettable amount over the

The Beauty Inside

I love Scotland. I’d forgotten how staggeringly beautiful it is. My memory and my passion were rekindled last week when I went on a mini tour of some of Scotland’s stunning countryside. I’d bought my husband a ‘Beach Landing on Barra’ as his Christmas present. I’d never been to the

I adore questions. I love taking my time to construct them and I especially love it when people ask me questions that really make me think, that make my eyes hunt and my brain hurt. I was on LinkedIn yesterday (I really should get out more) when a colleague’s ‘new

Self-awareness is what Style J leadership is all about. I realised this when I was watching a You Tube video today.  I’d gone on to LinkedIn as I do most mornings, to check for any interesting articles. I like to read posts I can relate to and one by Australian Coach Educator Stuart Lierich popped

Style J Prototyping

Sometimes I don’t pay enough attention – to me. Yesterday I found I’d been prototyping part of my Style J leadership development process, and I wasn’t even aware of it. I’d driven for an hour, to meet a new connection, not really knowing exactly what she wanted from me. Our agenda

I think I’m a facilitator. I call myself a facilitator of learning. I have the certificate, I’ve done the training, passed the assessment and been quality assured. And yet this week I wonder if I really am. I always believed a facilitator of learning helps others learn, supports them, makes
