Falling Back as a Catalyst for Springing Forward: A seasonal metaphor with implications for developmental growth
Growth Edge Network Gathering
Wellington, New Zealand 2/12/15 - 2/14/15
During this session, participants will engage in open exploration of how we can, have, do work with individuals, groups, and organizations to identify and name fallback, to reflect on it, and to grow from it. Participants will engage in open dialogue about their own experience of navigating the experience of fallback in self, with other individuals, and within teams and organizations...and how this navigation may assist developmental spring forward. Questions guiding the session include: What are the practices we use as developmentalists to make what is often undiscussable explicit? What are the tools we can provide to others to help in their noticing and recovery? How can we support individuals in supporting their teams when they don’t show up their best selves? When do we decide it’s not worth the effort? Is there a developmental threshold for “going there” with others?
