Great Minds Coming Together

Trust kids to show us that coming together provides the opportunity  for special moments.   We talk about teamwork and high performing teams but what does that mean?  For us, whether working with children or businesses the solution is the same.   It's combining the following ingredients:

1. An absolute clear purpose.  Not so much WHAT you are trying to achieve but more the reason WHY you are trying to achieve it.

Introducing Randomness

“Look Dad it’s a giant hedgehog,” exclaims Lulu.  In front of us is a 3 metre high round rock with grass growing on top.  Within a 30 minute walk together we had discovered five magical creatures.  Not bad for a stroll on a public beach!

I’m sure you’ve played this game lots with your children and friends that usually starts with a familiar looking cloud and ends with seeing leaping unicorns.   It’s a fun way for creative kids and adults to apply their imagination and just as importantly share the fun.

Who is your GoTo?

Who is your GoTo?

In a busy session today I was working with one student whilst others were coming up to me asking, "Ellen, ellen, what do you think of my work?" And another " Ellen what can I do to improve it?" I replied to both of them, "hey,  just give me a minute whilst I finish talking here and whilst you are waiting why don't you ask someone else in the class what they think?"
