Most teams, organisations, and communities are simply too busy to innovate. The pressure of deadlines, the scarcity of resources, the habit of routine, and the shear pace of change all contribute to a powerful dynamic called business as usual.
Any meaningful change takes time and space, and a social process that is distinct from business as usual. Expecting to get breakthrough solutions from a meeting - or even a one day workshop - that takes place under florescent lights and has been wedged into people’s diaries at short notice is unrealistic.
If you are looking for a genuinely transformative learning experience, the retreat experience really delivers. Please get in touch if you are interested in participating in one of my retreats, or if you want to host your own gathering - I am really happy to share what I know and to partner with you if that is useful.
I wholeheartedly believe that we need to learn how to slow down, reflect, share our stories with each other, and remember how to listen to the environment we live in. For busy people this can be a new and scary proposition, but it is the only way I know of accessing the deep intelligence needed to address the complex social challenges we face.
