With Bronagh Gallagher and Elizabeth Hunt
We experience the effects of power every day. We have to deal with a boss who won’t listen. We pretend to ignore harassment that rattles us. We witness an injustice from afar. Our energy soars from listening to a podcast that inspires us. The power we experience shapes our lives.
We also exercise power every day. We tell our kids to pick up their socks. We decide how to apply that new policy in our organization. We give our partner the silent treatment. We join a neighbourhood organization. The power we exercise shapes our lives.
In each of these moments, we make a decision about how to interact…do we give power, share power, take power, or simply walk away? Scale the experience and exercise of power to an organizational, societal, or even systemic level and we can start seeing that the world we live in is shaped by countless interactions around power.
In this two-day workshop we will explore how our interactions – repeated often enough – create patterns, and how our patterns around power can support or inhibit us from making the change we want to see in the world. We will dig into the idea that becoming conscious of how we experience and exercise power at an individual level makes us more effective at an organizational and systemic level.
In this two-day workshop we will be exploring::
Over the two days we are offering:
Bronagh Gallagher brings over 15 years experience of working with communities and in the voluntary sector in Glasgow, Scotland. She is an experienced facilitator with a particular interest in how we use good process to work on issues of social justice, equity, and structural, systemic change. Bitten by the complexity bug several years ago, Bronagh has been in an ongoing inquiry as to what this emerging, but radical, new field can tell us about how social change happens and how we can put it into practice.
Elizabeth Hunt is a facilitator who is newly embarking on an adventure as a university professor. For the past two decades, she has been developing and co-creating spaces for learning and conversation, with a particular emphasis on peer-to-peer sharing. Elizabeth is dedicated to upheaving traditional notions of “expertise” and instead facilitating processes where participants’ experience, knowledge, and ways of knowing are put front and centre. She is fascinated with how power, identity, and perception intersect to create individual human beings, organizations, and entire social systems. Elizabeth is founder of Alambic, a Montreal-based start-up supporting individuals and organizations in revealing, building, and developing their capacity.
