Presence-in-action ~ a new approach to human transformation
Welcome to Potent 6!
So many of us are talking about the need for change. What can we do? Often, we see folk externalising the problems and outsourcing the solutions. They reach for a tool believing it will fix everything, forgetting the most accessible and potent instrument available to them – themselves. In Potent 6, we witness deep change. We know it is possible and we also know that before presuming to attend to you, we too need to start with ourselves. We live and model what we share with you.
Let us help you discover that you are already a powerful agent of change. You will learn to transform and liberate your untapped flow and potential, whatever life brings to you. We call this capacity “Presence-in-action“. If you want this enough and are willing to work at it, our new approach to human transformation could make an (almost) unbelievable difference – every day – to you, your family, relationships, life and work.

Presence-in-action: systemic change from the inside, out…
Transforming ourselves and the wider systems around us is possible but not in the ways we may think or expect. In a world as complex as ours, personal and systemic change does not happen on command. In Potent 6 we offer new ways to see, understand and engage in the world – helping you to embrace the complexity of reality. We help you to access and enhance your capacity to influence and navigate change in all aspects of your life. We introduce you to a different way of engaging in the world which we call Presence-in-Action. This is coherent, timely action accessed by developing your acuity, agility, fluency and artistry to engage with life as it is not as you think it ‘should’ be.
Developing this core capacity enables you to transform your own unhelpful repeating patterns AND to extend your influence beyond yourself. When your Presence-in-action expands into other realms and across greater time-frames, you begin to demonstrate a complex meta-capacity we call Symmathesic Agency. Practitioners in Potent 6, seed and nurture Presence-in-action and Symmathesic Agency through an integrating framework called the P6 Constellation.
If you care enough about yourself to dare enough… if you are willing not only to invest in yourself but to invest yourself in changing for the good of those around you as well as for yourself… then why not see if our upcoming Learning Events have something for you?
The P6 Constellation is at the heart of our approach to Presence-in-Action and Symmathesic Agency. Our experience shows that to develop these transformative capacities for ourselves, we each need to centre in on what happens within us, within the context of our relational realms and the wider world.
The P6 Constellation is not a simplistic tool which our practitioners talk about and DO to you! As a growing bunch of people living and working in diverse cultural, professional and community contexts, we use the P6 Constellation to open the space for transformational change in ourselves first.
Only when we are proficient enough in our own personal practice, do we presume to offer it to anyone else! Through support and shared learning in our community in practice , our artistry and efficacy with the P6 Constellation grows.
Thus, following the living praxis of Louie Gardiner, its creator, we ‘go there first’ before reaping the delights of passing it on. And when we do pass it on, we bear witness to profound shifts in executives, professional colleagues, families, friends and children alike. We hear how they in turn, bring benefits to those whose lives they touch: coach to client; mediators to neighbours and families in conflict; friend to friend; Executive Manager to Board Members; peer to peer; partner to partner; parent to child and even child to parent!

This morning I read this... thank goodness for caring, loving, brilliant teachers.... I had several who eased me through lonely, miserable times at Tiffin Girls School... Barbara Kerr (Biology), Linda Smith (PE), Sue Urquhart (Maths), Mrs Jones (Chemistry), and at York St John's University Romano Zavaroni (Recreation Management)... you all were simply the best!
