Accountants Need Circles Too...

I've been hosting conversations among young leaders at a Big Four accounting firm, holding space for them to develop a greater sense of self-leadership--it has been a living laboratory for me...and a dream-like environment to do this kind of work in...but most grateful for the new relationships and deep bonds being formed....See More

"This is both elegant and comprehensive.  For me, it made sense of the interplay between the methodologies and offered some "big picture" perspective.  Thanks so much for sharing this!"

Profile Information

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
I missed the 2010 AoH event in Illinois, but just experienced the training in May 2011 in Lisle, Illinois at Morton Arboretum. I've been growing a local community of practitioners and wanted to expand my resources and support network.
Tell us about your experience with Art of Hosting as part of your life and work. What would you say your competence in it is? (new, starting practitioner, experienced practitioner, steward)
I've been a part of a group experiment called MarketPlace Learning Community in Chicago, where we host conversations bi-weekly with the goal of holding space for people of all ages and backgrounds to immerse in diversity of though, ideas and wisdom. Everyone brings value to the conversation, and everyone leaves with more than what they came with. I'd say that I'm an experienced practitioner of some methodologies, but not all--so I am still quite hungry to learn about all of the applications and success stories of this community.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
Human performance & potential in the context of community development.
Where do you live/work?
Chicago, IL
Would you like to share a web address?
http://www.kevinjohnsontoday.com
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
I enjoy spending time in nature, especially near or in the water. I get great pleasure listening to and creating music and poetry, especially live performances--nothing like that energy. Most of all, I am a proud papa to three happy, inquisitive and playful children...and I try to reflect them as much as they reflect me.

I, Grown

Searching still for fullness

Expression of all my power

in Stillness, holding space

for What’s possible

While being fully IN what IS

Denying future pondering

To be ALL, HERE, NOW

Fears acknowledged but forging forward

I, Groan…..I, Groan……I, Grown….

For while I may not know what all to do next,

I damn sure know Who I AM.

(Inspired by a teaching on the "Groan Zone" and shared during the Art of Hosting gathering May 23-25, 2011 at…
