Articles
    REAL: Regenerating Engagement and Learning :

This article offers a snapshot of a journey that began in 2010 and has culminated thus far in the completion of REAL

 
    Safeguard my own Trustworthiness :

These Seed Behaviours (aka'Simple Rules'in complexity science) express what people in IofC do when at our best. The behaviours are aspirational and inspirational – and as such, are challenging. The following descriptions are written in first person as it is for each of us to take these on as our own

 
    The Sweet Bitter of No :

Louie reflects on the outcome of the Scottish Referendum on 18 Sept 2014 and poses some provocative questions about 'now what?'

 
    Changing the Game of Change-making :

The Potent 6 Constellation is a methodology that sets conditions for transformational change in human systems - individuals, groups, organisations. This article describes the Potent 6 Constellation and how it came into being.

 
    The Scottish Referendum - Complexity Perspectives :

In agreeing to write this article, I am psychologically and soulfully stepping into the conversation on the Scottish Referendum. Practically I am already in. I live in Scotland by choice. It is my home...

 
    Foundations for Confidence :

I woke up this morning with something odd running through my mind: 1,2,3,4; 2,2,3,4; 3,2,3,4; 4,2,3,4.

 
    FLYER EXAMPLE: AoCS Embracing Complexity in Coaching and Supervision :

The AOCS invited Louie to deliver another workshop for practitioners in the NW who wanted to continue their personal and professional development. We focused on the reality of complex, uncertain times and explored how to better see, understand and take action amidst unpredictability. Using a complex adaptive systems perspective Louie supported participants to discover new perspectives, seeding the ground for breakthrough shifts in practice.

 
    More than teams: we need system-seers and system-influencers :

We are hardwired – born to categorise. They say it is to support our survival – to help us differentiate from those who are like us (assumed to be safe) and not like us (assumed to be unsafe). And so what we see all around us is the unwanted consequences of our default patterns of differentiation – of amplifying otherness rather than seeking to reveal what unifies us. Polarising differences as better or worse rather than discovering the complementarity that makes shared endeavour possible. So we get conflict. Violence. War. Genocide. Instead, what we could have - if we rise beyond the labelling and categorising that judges and separates - is wholeness. Synergy. Togetherness. Co-creation.

 
    Women Who Mean Business :

Around 30-40 people are gathered in the tea room on the terrace at 0730h. Seated in a large circle, we gazed upon a lit candle, a plant pot with bright red flowers and a dish with stones immersed in water. This centre-stage represents light, earth, water and life. It is August 2010.

 
    Influencing the uncontrollable :

When thousands of starlings flock (it is called a murmuration) it is, in my view, one of the most awe-inspiring sights imaginable. How do they do that without colliding? How do they move in concert with such glorious grace and beauty?

 
    FLYER: Supervision for Coaches :

I experience my own supervision as a vital source of self-care, learning and development. Whether I am supervising others or being supervised myself, I find it a moving, revealing, thrilling experience full of discovery, packed full of what it means to be a living, breathing, vibrant human being. Why wouldn't you want this?

 
    Changer and The Changed :

Personal reflections on the question of social impact. Shifting perspectives on where the change happens.

 
    FLYER: Turn your life around: from emotional misery to emotional mastery :

Emotional intelligence is something we all need yet few of us seem to have much control of our emotions. Rather we shy away from them and the roots for this avoidance pattern run deep. Yet it doesn't have to be like this; we don't have to be like this. We can come to understand what is 'playing us' within our own internal workings. We can become clear and focused for ourselves and in supporting others.

 
    Turning Scarcity into Creativity :

All around us people are talking about ‘austerity’ and ‘austerity measures’. This may be a harsh reality for some but for many of us, it is far from where we actually are right now. The very word conjures up images of gloom, impoverishment, denial, hardship. If we use the word and hold to this perception, we are likely to believe that the quality of our lives will be threatened and that we will suffer loss of material wealth, comfort, status; maybe we will have to go without food and basic requirements – perhaps we might imagine losing our jobs, our homes.

 
    Learning is Life-long :

There is much advocating about the importance and value of ‘life-long learning’. It is seen as vital and desirable; and I suspect that there are many who believe that not enough of us engage with ‘it’. As I turned my attention to the topic, I saw myself caught in that assumption and began to get curious. Surely it can’t be true that only some of us learn throughout our lives?

 
    Intentions, Outcomes and Delusions of Control :

It takes time to grow some-thing from apparently ‘no-thing’. No amount of believing otherwise, will actually make the process from germination to fruition happen in a heartbeat. Our society’s addiction to ‘quick fixes’ is based on a state of mind in which we believe that it is THE result that matters: that it is getting to the top; being first; winning at any cost and as fast as possible. We give primacy to pace and miss the joys of the journey. We drive for destinations and fail to see the sights along the way. Even more, we believe that we know what the journey’s end should be AND that we have control, the omnipotence, to make it happen.

 
    FLYER: Coach CPD: Embrace complexity in coaching and therapeutic relationships :

Learning about underpinning theory and principles of complex adaptive systems provides a foundation from which to learn about and integrate The Potent 6 Constellation in your coaching and therapeutic practice.

 
    FLYER: Coach CPD Practitioner: Systemic Coaching using The Potent 6 Constellation :

Following our Foundation training you will be eligible to join us to integrate and deepen your practice using The Potent 6 Constellation

 
    Adaptive Capacity: Looking at Human Systems Dynamics :

In this article first published in Coaching Today April 2013 Diane Parker comments: 'This theme of adapting in relationship with other is further echoed in Louie Gardiner's fascinating piece on human systems dynamics, as she uses her own experience of writing her article to demonstrate complex adaptive systems in action.

 
    Creativity in Motion :

Creativity is great but it ain’t anything without follow through. Having an abundance of fabulous ideas is no more than useless, unless we have the capacity to turn them into something that is …is what? Useful? Meaningful? Marketable? Desirable? For our creating to be anything, it needs to be of value to oneself and or others. It needs to address something that is unfulfilled, even if, for the creator, it is simply enjoying the embodied experience; the act of creating?

 
    Collaborating depends :

Returning from a week of working away from home, sitting on a jam-packed train; I am dog-tired and wondering how on earth I can pull together this month’s article. I appear to have no threads to pull on, so instead I decide to sit back, close my eyes and contemplate the theme. I find myself returning to my experiences from earlier this week, which I realise have helped to progress my thinking and understanding about some of what can help collaboration to work.

 
    Women in technology - an oxymoron :

So the theme this month is ‘women in technology’. Hmmmm. Maybe I am one of those women in technology? After all, here I am writing in an online magazine? In that question, clearly I am perverting the intention of the theme…. But hey ho… I can only go where my thinking takes me… wherever that is…

 
    Breaking old patterns to create transformational change :

Nothing about a caterpillar tells you that it will become a butterfly. All that it is, all that it was, gives birth to a creature of such delicate nature that one could barely have imagined it into being. It has the potential in its raw constituents but it is a fundamentally different being. The formless, tube-like beast eats and then ‘sleeps’ its way into a new state of being. It creates a context (a chrysalis) in which everything, that was configured in one way, can separate into fragments that then reform into a new whole. There is no going back with transformational change because the reconfiguration is complete.

 
    Competition kills innovation? :

Recently I have been prompted to explore the relevance and reality of competition and how it has played out in my personal life, my relationships and how I see it showing up in the economy in the wider world. With regards to the latter, I am on seriously dodgy ground but feel drawn to make comment! I’m no economist but somewhere in the recesses of my mind I remember hearing claims about competition being good for the economy. I notice that statement worries me and I find myself wanting to challenge it.

 
    When is Enough, Enough? :

There is enough evidence in the world, of people behaving in ways - fed by assumptions that year-on-year growth is both desirable and is the mark of a strong (successful) economy – that suggest that more IS better, and the more you earn and the more you have, the better and more successful you are considered to be. ‘More’ is success; ‘less’ is failure. We are trapped by this way of thinking and seeing; and it manifests through our choices and behaviours in almost every aspect of our existence.

 
    Fighting for Our Lives :

Emotions are running high. We have seen a film and listened to Kevin Rudd, former Australian PM and Jackie Huggins, an aboriginal woman, sharing the story about how ‘The Sorry Day’ held in Australia in 13 February 2008 came to be. Kevin, as the then new PM honoured his pre-election commitment to publicly apologise on behalf of the Australian Government for the tragic legacy which British Colonial and then Australian governmental policies inflicted on aboriginal peoples and children.

 
    Courage in Question :

Courage is not courage if fear is not present. We assume courage is evident in another, based on our own meaning-making. It is not an absolute measure applied to particular behaviours. Sometimes people have commented on my apparent acts of courage. When I ask them what leads them to their conclusion, what they often reveal is that they have seen me do something that, if they were to do it, would evoke in them great fear. Sometimes fear has certainly been present for me and many times not at all. In truth, their conclusions tell me more about them than it does about me.

 
    Bosses Choose Managers :

IN MY VIEW…..many studies on leadership miss the point. They confuse leading with managing. Management is a function that is undertaken in organisations by people who have been given the formal authority to ‘make sure’ something is achieved. Managers are appointed by ‘Bosses’. Just because someone is given the title of Director or Chief Executive does not mean they are or ever will be a Leader.

 
    Enterprising Exodus :

In May 2011 I sat in Eteaket in Edinburgh with around 15 other women. We had come together to explore why there were so few women in the most senior of leadership positions in our large organisations and institutions. Almost all of us had worked in such organisations and had left. Most of us had then set up our own small businesses. For many of us – it appeared – the cost of staying had simply become too great…. to our spirits, our families, the balance in our lives, our integrity, our desire to contribute more purposefully and in more honouring, human-affirming ways.

 
    FLYER: Simple introduction to the Potent 6 Constellation - simply navigating complexity :

Have you discovered that some approaches and models are either too simplistic or too complicated for handling the complex challenges you and your people are facing? Are you seeking something to help you cut through this complexity? What if what you need is not new but is simply something to help you see how to use what is available to you, differently?

 
    CASE STUDY: Inspiring Leaders Programme: what the people say :

See what those who participated in this programme think and feel about their experiences of the Inspiring Leaders Programme.

 
    Questioning the Value of Values :

Traditional approaches suggest that, along with first defining Vision and Purpose, leaders should identify the Values they want a team or organisation to uphold. What we believe is that by defining these things we will be able to control what people in the organisation do and how they do it.

 
    FLYER: POD ~ Professional Outcome-focused Dialogue Groups :

Where do senior leaders go for confidential support, development and career advancement?

 
    My way or yours :

As we move into 2012, I wonder what transformations might emerge if more of us chose an intention to explore the meaning-making behind the frictions that arise between ourselves and the people in our lives – at home, at work, in the street, in our communities? What might we discover? Who might become an integral part of our lives? What might we come to create together?

 
    Women and self-confidence re-framed :

It is easy to assume that the way for women to progress in the world is to behave more like men. Research shows that this strategy can be counter-productive. More importantly when women follow that strategy they lose something of themselves. In this article I suggest that rather than trying to behave in ways that are inauthentic, it might be more helpful to focus on valuing what is different about us and learning to convey confidence in that difference.

 
    Playing with Diversity - Pain or Pleasure :

So much research focusing on facts that demonstrate how sadly lacking in diversity are the power arenas in our corporations, governments and institutions. SO many demands and cries for others to take action to re-dress this. SO much being said about how vital it is we bring more diversity into these realms; accompanied by some evidence that suggests that more diversity means better results, better business, better performance, richer communities. And SO little enquiry about ‘how and why the pattern towards sameness perpetuates?’; nor about ‘how each of us is contributing to the drive towards sameness?’

 
    Adaptive Leadership aka Dynamical Leadership :

There are no silver bullets for today’s complex leadership dilemmas. If we accept the assumption that humans together act as ‘complex adaptive systems’, we come to realise that our conventional understanding about the concept and practice of leadership is certainly incomplete if not fundamentally flawed.

 
    Beyond Capitalism: A New Game :

This article was written by Dr Glenda Eoyang for the first Big Gathering of 'Inspiring Women Leaders... Dare we?' which took place on 15 June 2011.

 
    GUEST ARTICLE: The Undivided One - Mary Parker Follett :

Johnathan Wilson wrote this monograph of a largely unacknowledged pioneer - Mary Parker Follet. He kindly contributed this into the mix of 'Inspiring Women Leaders... dare we?'

 
    Learning to be Partners in Life and Business :

    Following the Lead of Young People :

Young people bring us the gift of passion, dreams and a willingness to have a go. In this regard, they are our teachers.

 
    Inspiring women leaders... dare we - Crossing the Threshold :

The beginnings of this movement from the perspective of one of its leaders - me!

 
    FLYER (FOR INFO ONLY): Inspiring Women leaders... dare we, 2011 :

Read about what we did back in 2011. Women who attended this gathering went on to support women leaders to play their part in transforming leadership, business and society as a whole

 
    Authors of our own Lives :

Make no mistake, this is a fine mess we have gotten ourselves into. We are the authors of and actors in our own lives. Always.

 
    Confidence in Context :

Confidence is often spoken about as if it is an absolute state. It is as if, in the way we speak about it, we think that once ‘acquired’, we have it always. Now, reflect on the different contexts in which we may find ourselves – at home; in the workplace; amongst friends; doing things we have never done before; going to somewhere we have never been; receiving feedback from others who tell us that we are not as skilled/ experienced/ intelligent etc as we believed ourselves to be, or more than we believe ourselves to be; stepping on the dance floor when we think we can or cannot dance; being asked to sing solo in front of others, when usually we only sing in the car or the bath. Put us out of context, in unfamiliar places or situations, how do we feel then?

 
    Beyond Space and time :

Getting caught up in the busy-ness of life and denying ourselves space and time for reflection and rejuventation creates a downward spiral...

 
    Beginnings, Middles and Ends :

Musings about beginnings, middles and ends...

 
    Innovation. A short story about Inspiring women leaders... dare we? :

Innovation was the December theme for the3rdi. I used this as a starting point to examine what might have been happening as my idea of doing something transformed into a tangible event.

 
    Why so few senior women in business and politics :

The title of this article is somewhat misleading in that the question really leads us into an exploration of Human Systems Dynamics and how it could help us enquire into the situation posed by the question.

 
    Collaboration and Co-operation ~ Meanings, Intentions, Actions :

In this article I explore the difference in meaning I make between these two words: Collaboration and Co-operation. I then explore how this plays out in our intentions and actions.

 
    Big Society :

David Cameron talks about his notion of creating The Big Society. I wonder what he thinks will bring it about?

 
    Managing Meaning :

I was in it– one of those situations most of us hope will never happen. And here it was happening to me. Frozen in the middle of a group of executive managers .. I was devoid of all my faculties in that moment when 3 out of 5 of them blasted out their indignation at the words I had just uttered: ‘When you dig to the roots of motivation, there is always FEAR’.

 
    Leading in a Quick-fix Culture :

What has been playing in my mind since I completed my last article is considering the impact of our 'Quick-Fix' culture and what implications this has for Leaders in our time. In this first part I'm going step outside my own perspective to present some rather provocative, judging, challenging and uncompassionate views on some aspects of our western culture. Later on, from a more understanding and constructive viewpoint, I will go on to explore what might be going on for people caught in such scenarios.

 
    Old Trafford Inspiring Leaders :

Old Trafford Inspiring Leaders created their own event to celebrate their extraordinary learning journey as emerging leaders within the community.

 
    Old Trafford Inspiring Leaders Programme - Benefits and Outcomes :

The Old Trafford Inspiring Leaders Programme came about to give passionate local people a chance to learn more about themselves; and to learn how to lead and work more effectively with others across different cultural communties. The intention was for Old Trafford Neighbourhood Management to leave an enduring legacy within the people of the area which would be a catalyst for positive, lasting change.

 
    Potent Mix of Six :

This article is the first of a series which will touch upon the landscape of leadership. This is my passion and it infuses every aspect of my life, my learning and my relationships - how I 'be' in the world. I will come at it using the six 'Ps' of Potent 6 - using these to illuminate the kind of leadership I am interested in championing.

 
    Inspiring Leaders and the Power of Consciousness :

Louie Gardiner takes the opportunity to share some perspectives on Inspiring Leaders and the power of consciousness.
