Event description

Description

Our new workshop is for anyone who wants to go deeper into their own professional practice.

We’re going to focus on leaning into difficulty and uncertainty, in whatever form that comes for you – maybe difficult people, organisational stress, questions about career direction.

Our aim is to offer a safe space to explore your own learning edges and discover new things about yourself. We do this in our signature unhurried way - the pace that is right for the work that needs to be done.

Radical Design - A program built for and with you.

We create a program in response to what you bring. We call it Radical Design. In this way, we believe we really are building an experience around the people that matter, you. It includes a on-line group zoom meeting before we meet face-to-face, and also afterwards.

The Practice is for people looking for something different and special, willing to be surprised by what they learn as part of a collaborative group.

We’re not expecting to be teaching, but we are going to use activities and conversations to help everyone explore their own edges.

In previous workshops we've worked on a series of challenges people were facing, using a range of activities, including some creative stimulation using archetypes, our action storming process, constellations work. There is always a rich mixture of conversation, space for reflection, and playful experimentation.

Show Up - Let go - Jump In

The first step is to Show Up - that’s usually the easiest bit.

Then Let Go - of expectations, of old habits of thinking and acting, of worn-out stories we tell ourselves about what we can and can’t do, or why something will or won’t work.

And then Jump In - to new experiences and ideas, to different ways of thinking and being.

What to expect

You can expect to be working with a diverse group of people bringing vastly different experiences who will quickly become colleagues and supporters of your own journey. There is a maximum of 12 participants, plus two hosts. You can expect to be challenged, excited, surprised - and never bored. We will build in opportunities to rest your brain and energise your body.

Your Hosts: Viv McWaters and Johnnie Moore

Viv McWaters worked as a journalist, and in communications, and community education, training and strategy development. She now specialises in facilitation and participatory evaluation and draws on her background in the natural sciences and arts. Viv help groups discover new approaches to the work that matters for them, and designs workshops, conferences and training to bring them to life.

Viv studied agricultural science at Longerenong Agricultural College, and has a Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies from RMIT University, and a Masters in Applied Science (Agriculture and Rural Development) from the University of Western Sydney.

Improvisation is a constant source of inspiration, as is nature, play and the surprising things that people say and do. Currently, Viv is researching the role of applied improvisation in preparing people to respond in uncertainty, particularly disaster response.

Johnnie Moore has been a facilitator and coach for over fifteen years working with a wide range of organisations as far afield as Singapore and the Solomon Islands. Much of his focus is on helping people to have challenging conversations to create opportunities to learn and grow.

He is the co-founder of Creative Facilitation and also of Unhurried. He aims to bring humour, compassion and his own experiences of facing work and personal stress and challenge to his work with individuals and groups.
