Tactical conversations to affect peoples thinking | Monday June 15, 2015 | 5.30pm

Nelson Mandela asked: How can we inspire greatness when nothing less will do? Greatness in our time means doing everything required to transition from sure ecological self-destruction to a life-sustaining future.

For this transition to occur successfully those of us who care must become skilful at raising people’s quality of thinking to a new level. Tactical conversations are an innovative approach to doing this. Developing this skill will increase your repertoire as a facilitator and as a social change agent.

We start with something physical. You will learn how to do an advanced Tai Chi push using the Feldenkrais method of teaching (fun; surprising!).

Then we will show how the principles of teaching we just used apply to affecting how people think in ways that they find beneficial. This is an innovative way of communicating that has many applications.

We can apply it to catalysing mindset shifts for healthy social change. The Inspiring Transition initiative is a vehicle to take it to scale.
