Collaboratory Melbourne Meetup Message Board › Reminder Pattern Dynamics with Tim Winton this weekend.
Hello Good People!
Thought I'd shoot you a quick email as a reminder that we have Tim Winton coming to Melbourne again in a few weeks to run another Pattern Dynamics workshop and think you'd get a lot out of it. It's also the opportunity to apply an innovative, whole of systems approach to the structure, dynamics and activities of the Collaboratory as we develop it into a community led enterprise.
Fellow Collaboratory meetup members Daryl Taylor, Eva Migdal, Julian Waters Lynch, Adam Jorlen, Bridgette Engeler Newbury, Richard Harmer, Michelle O'Brien, Jo Scott, Claire Butler and myself participated in the one day intro workshop in September and ALL loved it.
This workshop is going to be over two days. The first day, Saturday, spent learning the core patterns. The second day we'll be applying the patterns to the Collaboratory Melbourne and designing collaborative structures and systems based on the Pattern Dynamics framework.
If you can't make it both days, please join us at least for the Saturday. It will change the way you see things and build your ability to deal with complex issues.
A bit of a blurb...
Why you should join us for the Pattern Dynamics workshop next month.
Life is complex. The issues we face personally and professionally, locally and globally are sometimes complicated and at times messy. But it all depends on how you look at it - how you understand and make meaning.
What if you could see the simplicity underneath it all? What if you could better understand and gain clear insights into the complex systems and structures upon which our lives are built? How would it be if you could share that understanding with others and use it to create new structures and transform existing systems to a future for you, your work, your family, and the planet that thrives.
Pattern Dynamics is a simple, practical tool that can be learned by anyone to overcome the challenges posed by complex systems–at any scale. Here’s how it works:
What is Pattern Dynamics?
Pattern Dynamics is a language of visual Patterns that will help you understand, communicate and design solutions at the systems level. By learning Pattern Dynamics you will gain a powerful new capacity as a ‘systems thinker’–a skill that is often thought to be unteachable.
With this skill you will be able to develop strategies that help resolve complex challenges at any level of organisation, from the community to the planetary, and in any domain, from business to governance to institutional. You will also learn how you can create the environment for a culture of whole systems thinking, and learn how to facilitate the design of generative and sustainable structures, processes and frameworks for a thrivable future.
> The workshop is only $250 for the whole weekend (10 & 11 November), and if you're only able to make it for the Saturday (the essential stuff), it's only $150. It's a great investment and you'll also get to spend the weekend with a bunch of other awesome people building better futures. :)
You can find out more information and register here.
Anyway, hope you can come. It's a pretty awesome shared experience and those of us who have participated in the previous workshop are certainly appreciating the shared understanding and the conversations it enables.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Have a great week,
