How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
I learned about AoH from reading about various approaches to working with large groups to inspire whole system change, such as Appreciative Inquiry, Open Space Technology and World Cafe. I am keen to extend my skill and ability in large group interventions and consider the Participatory Leadership as an ideal opportunity to immerse myself in the processes.
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 am a relative novice in this respect. I have a reasonable theoretic knowledge of some core elements but very little practical experience of applied practice. I have much experience of micro group facilitation and am curious to see how this transfers into my professional practice.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
Keen to use LGI to inspire whole system change, build greater collaboration, reduce silo working within a traditional hierarchical organisation. I am eager to develop awareness of techniques and apply skills to practice. I am also keen to see how I stand within this community.
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
I am interested in community and belonging within organisations. I have a growing interest in appreciative inquiry and positive psychology. I am keenly interested in employee engagement, participative design and collaborative working. I enjoy sport, music and performing arts.
