Profile Information

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
My friend Leslie Toope encouraged me to join the training in Pembroke, Ontario, Canada in April 2009.

The people, the conversations, the self and other propelled sparks that ignite interests and idea's into new relationships and action.
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)
Am familiar with many of the various techniques employed (AI, Open Space, World Cafe etc) but still exploring and learning about the deeper essence I suspect. Have been facilitating groups with a popular education, interactive bent for a good 25 + years. AoH feels aligned with that and hopefully has the potential to expand my approaches. I am currently seeking ways to incorporate more creativity and the arts into my work. I find such approaches often surfaces fresh insights and surprise...and simply colour, imagery and beauty to our conversations.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
Organization Development/Effectiveness...Change Leadership

team building, leadership, self as instrument, articulating vision and values

and at the root of all that - effective interpersonal communication and relationships
Where do you live/work?
Ottawa, Canada area (live in La Peche (Rupert), Quebec)
Would you like to share a web address?
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
- integrating the expressive arts into the process; learning and creating more of such processes

- working in bilingual and even francophone environments

- simply meeting more people on this journey and adventure into our individual and collective hearts and minds

Bonjour Linda! Je suis désolée, je ne réponds qu'aujourd'hui à ton mail... Je ne viens pas assez souvent sur le ning... Bien sûr, tu es la bienvenue dans le groupe francophone! On est content de voir le network s'étendre dans le monde francophone, et bien évidemment, l'anglais est aussi permis!

Bien à toi, bonne journée ... et peut-être à bientôt!
