A Practitioner’s Journey

In our work as coaches and consultants we are often invited into new and unfamiliar places where people may seem to talk different languages and possess unfamiliar customs and practices. In many ways, this can be likened to being a stranger in a new land with all the feelings of bewilderment and excitement borne of unfamiliarity and newness.

What is it that we, as ‘strangers’, bring to a new environment? What qualities and resources do we draw upon as we seek to understand this new place and to establish new relationships with people in a way that will lead to productive outcomes? What is there in the experience of being a ‘stranger’ that helps us find something unique in the familiar, to appreciate the qualities of difference, and to remain fully present as we seek to navigate this journey successfully?

In this 5-day workshop, Wick van de Vaart and Mark Lough are inviting you to engage your spirit of curiosity in a shared-learning experience designed to appreciate more fully what you offer as a practitioner and to explore what can enrich your capacity to work creatively and effectively, even in the midst of complexity and uncertainty.
