Crafts-people all

To be playful is to allow for possibility whatever the cost to oneself.*
(
James Carse)

I’m spending three days with a group of people exploring how to develop competence in complexity.

We live in “powerful times” and it demands different competencies to those which have served us in the past.

There are many tools on offer at our event, ways and means for exploring and working through complexity, but we know it’s not about the tools alone.  We must become skilful at using these and, largely, this is about becoming the most important tool of all: a crafts-person, one who is a maker of tools.

Each of us has a personal way into becoming a crafts-person for the 21st century and they’re not too difficult to find; the thing we often struggle with is the cost.
