I have been booked to deliver the keynote at the forthcoming European Collaborative Conference
I have taken on the theme of the conference; Creating Consensus and decided to give that a more directly challenging spin for the delegates.
What would it mean if we recognised what we do as “Craft?”
How does that help those of us working within collaboration to elevate what we do from merely “What we do” and lift it into the realms of nothing less than artisanship?
What pride might we feel in the services we offer, the skills we continue to develop and the value that we offer to disputants and teams working through disagreements?
It brings in notions of conscious practice, reflection, constant self evaluation and development and drives us and our communities to what? Transformation, perhaps?
I’m excited about this engagement and hope to be able to share more with you as the date approaches.
