Bringing the practices of mindfulness and dialogue to leadership conversations

Learning pathways

Originate works within the messy complexity of modern leadership practice, where ideas meet action, logic meets intuition, structures meet human beings, plans meet emergence…and where unfathomable things occur.

To navigate an uncertain world, we all need to:

think more widely and deeply than our usual environment allows;
● consciously influence the shape and quality of important conversations; and
● cultivate greater capacity to navigate turbulence with resilience and grace.

Originate can assist you to foster capability in these arenas, whether as a leader, coach or other practitioner. There are three pathways:

● leadership development programme to support change in the quality of conversations, through an open programme or bespoke work in-house;
● executive coaching dialogues for individual leaders; and
● coaching supervision dialogues for practicing executive coaches.

For more on each pathway, read on.

Changing practice in conversations

Dialogue – conversations that support collaboration, transformation, innovation and every other aspect of an imagined better future. It’s the latest ‘must-have’ in a leader’s toolkit. Except that…the tools, such as they are, turn out to be so simple that it’s easy to discount their value. Further, if we see the potentials, it proves deeply challenging to realise them.

Do all your conversations go well? Are all your meetings engaging and worthwhile? As a prospective client, you’re wondering why some conversations are effective while others end in frustration (or worse): what makes a conversation fit-for-purpose?

Executive coaching dialogues

As a prospective client, you’re likely to be working in a leadership role where the challenges are complex and your environment is uncertain, dynamic and demanding. You need to influence colleagues with divergent priorities and differing styles, whilst remaining calmly true to your own values and concerns. You are curious about the impact of your leadership style on the performance of those around you.

You expect executive coaching to support you to broaden your ‘repertoire’, and provide purposeful time and space for you to air what’s on your mind and consider how to proceed.

Coaching supervision dialogues

As a prospective client, you’re likely to be an executive coach working with clients in complex leadership roles. You are aware of your professional responsibilities to be in supervision and expect your coaching supervision arrangement to provide you with purposeful time, space and support to engage in reflective practice.

You are open to co-creating supervision sessions that liberate you to be your best as a coach, and inspire you to continue to do potent work.
