Your trainer/facilitator bio
Nick specialises in supporting people to self-organise to work together towards a purpose. He attended the very first Transition Training in Totnes in 2007, delivered the Transition Launch training internationally, then focussed on group skills for Transition, developing the first Effective Groups training in 2009. Since then he has developed an online Self-Organization Adoption Program which anyone can use to lead their group or team on the journey to more effective Self-Organization.
Through 30 year’s experience in private, public and non-profit sectors; as an employee, manager, freelancer, entrepreneur, volunteer, business partner; with organisations; Nick has been on a profound organisational journey. He traversed the conventional management hierarchy, took a deep dive into collaboration and consensus and explored agile/responsive/teal/conscious practices of self-management and self-organising systems. Becoming the first Certified Holacracy Coach in the UK in 2015, this journey has provided Nick with a deep understanding of the principles and practices of self-organisation and self-organising systems in different contexts.
Nick seeks to catalyse the transition to a way of thinking, being and living which addresses, rather than contributes to, today’s challenges. His work upgrades the way we learn, collaborate and run our organisations to enable better fit for the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous conditions of the 21st century. He lives in Somerset with his family and loves, surfing and walking and sleeping under the stars in wild places.
