Wisdom in Groups – Leadership, Strategy and Teams
Post by Professor Simon Bell
In a fractured world where it seems that people are pulling further and further apart, where we find it hard to understand each other and where conflict seems likely to break out at any moment, we present Wisdom in Groups.
Wisdom in Groups from the Bayswater Institute.
You can think of the Wisdom in Groups event as a ‘headspace’, where beliefs and assumptions are renewed and refreshed.
Uniquely, Wisdom in Groups contains and implements the Double Task approach development originally by Harold Bridger. Double Task provides clarity both about the work we do and the way we do it. The outcome of applying Double Task is what the Bayswater Institute refers to as ‘Group Aware’. A person who is GroupAware is more reflective and more capable, better able to manage the overt and covert challenges of life. Wisdom in Groups is intended to help people to feel stronger and more resilient. It can mark a step change in our understanding of ourselves as leaders.
In all the turmoil of the contemporary world, maybe to be truly GroupAware is the most powerful gift that an organisation can provide to its people.
Peter Drucker came up with a saying ‘culture eats strategy for breakfast’ and we see this in many of the organisations we at the Bayswater Institute go into. Using Double Task with leaders and teams helps us to work together on strategy and culture at the same time, so that changes, introduced are firmly rooted in the reality of the present, and lead to better outcomes in the future.
