The Practice

Going deeper into your challenges

King's College Cambridge November 21st and 22nd 2018 9.30am to 4.30pm four spaces left
Melbourne: February 2019 dates being planed


Our new workshop is for anyone whose work depends on working with people – managers, leaders, coaches, facilitators.

It’s an opportunity to go deeper into your own professional practice. We’re going to focus on leaning into difficulty, 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 edge and discover new things about yourself.

A programme built around the participants


We’re not coming to this with fixed techniques and activities in mind. We’re finding out what’s at issue for everyone coming, and we are creating a programme in response to this. In this way, we believe we really are building a workshop around the participants.

People who have already booked have been to lots of professional development courses, and are looking for something a bit different and special. They are also looking to be surprised by what they learn as part of a collaborative community.

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

Based on conversations with people who have booked, we are going to include some work on the masks of leadership. We’ll look at the pressures to conform to stereotypes when leading and facilitating, and using mask work to discover some new ways of presenting ourselves more creatively, and get better results.



We’re using one of our favourite venues, King’s College in Cambridge.

We’re limiting it to 8 participants so that everyone gets plenty of airtime. In preparation, we plan to offer an (optional) online meeting for participants a couple of weeks ahead of the workshop, and a follow up meeting early in the new year.

We’ll run from 9.30am to 4.30pm each day. The food at King’s is great and teas, coffees, snacks and lunch are all included.


After we’ve spoken, if you would like to book, the cost will be £950. You can also secure a place with a non-refundable deposit of £150 with the balance due by November 5th. Costs are subject to VAT at 20%.

Cancellation policy: Before November 5th we will refund bookings less a £150 (plus VAT) fee. After November 5th bookings cannot be cancelled but you can transfer your place to someone else.

Is this workshop for you?

We’d love to have a chat with you to find out more about what you are looking for, and see if The Practice feels right for you. Use the form below and we’ll get in touch to set up a call by phone or online.
