I've been studying a lot about Neuroscience lately, and specifically about how we can harness our understanding of it to support the learning process. It's fascinating. Here's a great short clip from a BBC documentary that demonstrates what a challenge it is to acquire new knowledge, and the importance of using it, or losing it.
Coaching is fundamental to our work at AOC. We know first hand from both being coached and having coached, it has the ability to move decades of 'I'm back here again, really?!'

One of the biggest challenges in the work we do is building tribes of Change Agents wide enough, and resilient enough, to help deliver the change we seek into organisational cultures. So I was thrilled to meet with Post*Shift last week, a digital comms agency who are focused on helping internal change agents to find, support and learn from each other.
Those eager to explore brave new worlds need the support they can offer each other - it can be a lonely world out there as a pioneer, and I'm looking forward to finding out more about their shift*groups programme, currently in beta. Check it out here.
Why do we change?
