Crack Your Case

Leadership is inseparable from how we show up as human beings.

In the role of leader, it’s not always easy to find your own centre and analyse situations from different angles with enough distance to clearly discern the way forward. Many leaders also now see the necessity for skilful awareness in navigating how they connect with and use power in addressing unconscious bias, for effective leadership, and to be vibrant as people and stronger as an organisation. This is where co-learning with fellow leaders can provide immense support. 

We borrow the term Dojo from martial arts, meaning a shared practice ground for the path of inner mastery. We will open each dojo with some ideas based on Process Work’s concepts of flow and change, applied to the complexities of leadership.

We will then focus on one person’s leadership case as a learning context. Through unfolding the complexities of each case, we will generate transferable insights that can grow the leadership capabilities of everyone present.

 “The only source of knowledge is experience”.

Albert Einstein

This dojo is for leaders. You may be leading a large corporation, a grassroots NGO, a co-op, an ad-hoc project team, or a private company.

If you and those you lead consider you a leader, welcome!


The framework we will present and use to support casework exploration includes:

• Systemic Nesting: the different perspectives of personal, team, organisational and structural levels as an ecological and collaboration system

• Strange Attractor: what pulls you forward towards purposeful vision

• Fields and Entanglements: how the atmosphere and the collective field are expressed in specific contexts

• Roles: the power of knowing which role/s you and others play and role-switch dynamics

• Information signals: tracking emotional and atmospheric signals in the here-and-now to uncover important information.

We give thanks for the wisdom of these peoples that has informed the Process Work approach. We honour the courage, resilience and spirit of traditional peoples in the face of the devastating impact colonisation has had and continues to have on their culture, wellbeing, and sovereignty.
