Interesting stuff

This is the place where I will put links to websites, blogs, articles and books that are interesting to me, and which I am thinking about. If you think of anything else that should be on this page please send me an email and I’ll take a look at it!

Blogs:

Aid on the edge of chaos is the blog of a friend of mine, Ben Ramalingam. He’s writing a book at the moment on how complexity and chaos theory can be applied to aid and development. I think he’s got some really interesting ideas and this blog is a great place to look.

Seeing systems blog is the blog of Barry Oshry. Barry is the creator of the Organisation Workshop, which I am certified in, and addresses how power dynamics play out in organisational systems. He explores his view on systems in his blog, which is definitely worth a look.

Lee Chalmers is someone I have come across on my travels, but don’t know well. She’s a force of nature and involved in lots different projects and explores ideas on leadership, politics and women’s issues on her blog.

Delta 7 was founded by a friend, Julian Burton, to engage people in organisations in dialogue through pictures that they create and through graphic facilitation. On his blog you can see some of the images that they use to spark dialogue – some great stuff!

Fudoshin Development was founded by another friend, Frankie Briers. Frankie is an interfaith minister, facilitator, trainer and coach who writes some great blog posts exploring a range of subjects which interest him.

Justin Wise: on living and working. Pursuing meaning and courage in organisational and professional life. A blog by a friend and colleague Justin Wise, who as the name would suggest, is very wise!

Organisations:

Strozzi Institute: Founded by Richard Strozzi-Heckler, this is a place where I have done a lot of my training in embodied leadership. Richard is a masterful teacher and coach, and has developed a whole body of work which this institute teaches. I have worked with Strozzi Institute for 10 years have have brought their programmes to Europe, co-facilitating these with Strozzi Institute.

Clare Myatt: not really an organisation, but connected to Strozzi Institute, so this seems to fit here. Clare is a coach, therapist and bodyworker in the Strozzi Institute tradition of embodied work. She is, in my opinion, the best bodyworker in this tradition here in the UK, and is a great person too!
