Often we talk about the values we want to live by—ways of engaging and working and thinking that are important to us. We can easily recognize when others appear not to be living up to the values they espouse.  Practice can begin by looking for differences between our espoused theories (what we say we do) compared to our theories in action (what we really do) to help us from defaulting to defensive behaviour and single-loop learning patterns. Jules’s insight into natural resource management and human factors has enabled him to help teams solve substantive problems more effectively through reflective dialogue practices. In this session he will draw upon the work of Chris Argyris to explore the antidote to overcome the defensiveness that exists in all of us as human beings.

“Why is this session important for me and how will I apply this to my own coaching practice?”

Benefits of integrating a contemplative practice into your practice include:

  1. Overcoming potential binds in working with challenging clients
  2. Overcoming potential binds in working with potential consultants
  3. Maximizing learning, shared understanding, and minimizing second-guessing during coaching sessions (before, during, and after)
  4. Making better choices for yourself through self-awareness
  5. Avoiding organizational and learning traps with clients and partners while working from a place of freedom
  6. Avoiding being a prisoner when you tell yourself you have no choice or you can’t say what you are really thinking
  7. Building trustworthy relationships/partnerships with less gamesmanship and bureaucracy when new business or organizational opportunities come knocking on the door
