Struggling with Complexity – Shame

An evening exploring what gets in the way of us being able to work with wicked problems and what might help.

Our Salon events are fast becoming the most talked about event in Yorkshire.  Salons are born out of the 18th Century in Versailles Paris, where women and men would meet for ;intellectual discourse’.  We wanted to create a modern space for such enlightening conversations. A place to meet with like minded individuals; Business Leaders, HR Directors, OD Directors, Change Managers and Policy makers to share what’s emerging in our worlds around a number of hot topics which in themselves have the potential to change the future of our worlds.

In last autumns Salon event we focused on Kindness in Leadership, this autumn we are exploring the role of Shame and how our patterns impact our capacity to be the best we can be. How do we work with vulnerability, our own and that of others? What happens when we’re triggered into shame states and how do we get out?

Ideal focus for leaders, coaches, facilitators, heads of HR, OD and Business Owners.

Boston Spa

Our relationships, adaptability and resilience are continually tested as we face climate emergency, political and economic divisions, complexity and uncertainty. Having the freedom to learn, to recognise our patterns, to find our voice, whilst sustaining the capacity to hear others, seems critical.

We are delighted to welcome conversation starter: Simon Cavicchia, author of Relational Coaching, consultant and organisational developer.

There will be small group dialogues enabling co-creation of  shared understanding, wisdom through difference and time to encourage new insights, learning and transformation.

There’s no shame in admitting what you don’t know. The only shame is pretending you know all the answers.

Shame is the most powerful, master emotion. It’s the fear that we’re not good enough.
