Ian Colley BIO
I facilitate change and learning projects. These mostly deal with tricky issues – building common ground between diverse interests, solving problems, leading difficult conversations, creating clarity about uncertain futures (isn't it all uncertain?). Much of the work culminates in events, meetings and workshops. These high intensity events require thoughtful design: crafting questions that will provoke insight and build trust. Variety is important - energy and light-hearted interaction, then quiet reflection. People change and learn for reasons of heart as well as logic. I have learnt a lot from teaching – testing new approaches with motivated professionals - at the University of Technology (where I have taught since 2005) and with other agencies. Over the past 30 years in business I have developed a broad repertoire of approaches for generating high engagement and getting practical results. From this experience I have crafted specialty courses in facilitation and have run these with hundreds of participants over the past five years.
