Facilitating DOORS to Deep Learning with Dr Eugene Fernandez | Monday November 12, 2018 | 5.30pm

As problems we deal with become more complex and critical, we need leaders who are able to transcend those limitations by evolving solutions, which are at least one step above the thinking that created those problems.

Drawing on frameworks and applied research within organisations my aim is to facilitate understandings and conversations about how we could open Doors to Deep learning within organizations that shift and address sticky problems.

I expect that we will journey through a process, sometimes didactic, and propositional and at others experiential and if the journey and time permit we will co-creatively explore what I have termed ‘4 Frames of learning’, which encourages Facilitators and Leaders to adopt a more holistic, context bound and qualitative frame to their interventions.
