I am fantastically pleased to be hosting a one day workshop on ‘Engaging Communities in Challenging Times’ with Meg Wheatley in Melbourne on 21 November 2013 with my colleague Kate Tucker of Inhere Consulting. Register here.
Meg Wheatley – one day in November
Meg Wheatley has been a regular visitor to Australia working with the executive teams of the CFA in Victoria, Disability NSW and Indigenous Agencies in the Northern Territory. She has also met with people from the Governor-General to bushfire affected communities in Victoria. However, this is the first public workshop where you can spend a day with the legendary Meg Wheatley.
The workshop is designed for people working in community engagement and community leadership and will be examining issues of apathy and anger in our work. Meg will be presenting her 12 principles for Creating Healthy Community Change and discussing perseverance – how we maintain our energy, confidence and commitment to our work.
Meg is a world renown leader and author in the fields of community advocacy, leadership and organisation development. She received her doctorate in Organisational Behaviour and Change for Harvard University and her resultant book Leadership and the New Science is in its third edition and has been translated in to 18 languages. She has also written extensively on the state of our Communities including “Turning to One Another: Simple Conversations to Restore Hope to the Future. In 2002 the American Society for Training and Development awarded her their highest honour of “Living Legend.”
I am sure you will be highly rewarded if you take the time to spend a day of inquiry and reflection with Meg Wheatley. Register here.
Meg is also leading a retreat in Sydney and a second workshop for organisation development professionals in Melbourne. For more information see the Meg Wheatley Down Under website.
