Over the past three decades, Mark McKergow and Jenny Clarke have worked to bring new ideas about learning, changing and leading into the organisational field. We like things which:
Learning: Accelerated Learning in business settings (where learning increases when you teach less)
Changing: Solutions Focus in coaching, team development and organisational change (where problems are dis-solved by looking at what’s wanted and what’s working)
Leading: Host Leadership, post-heroic leadership by bringing people together (where leaders lead by stepping back as well as stepping forward)
What we do now:
The Solutions Focus:
the classic introduction to SF, now in 11 languages
Solutions Focus Working: the SF casebook, 14 examples of SF in action in organisations
Positive Approaches to Change: articles on SF and Appreciative Inquiry in management
57 SF Activities:
workshop and team event processes from the SF community
The Next Generation of Solution Focused Practice
The latest developments in how SF works by 'stretching the world'
Hosting Generative Change

What is the relationship between dialogue and action?
Join us for our third online global conversation which will explore the the relationship between dialogue and action. As dialogic OD consultants, practitioners and author we think that dialogue is vital to generative organisational change. But how does that connect to action? How do we help people into action, does it matter (as talk is just a kind of action anyway), are there ways to action which don’t just turn into ‘planned change’ but stay emergent…
Our gathering will be held in salon-style* and hosted by the Faculty of the Bushe-Marshak Institute for Dialogic OD.
We’ll begin with a number of the authors sharing their perspectives on the topic, then open it up for dialogue, creating the space for you to have conversations in small groups before reconvening as one large group.
Anyone interested in change leadership, organizational development is welcome to participate. The panel will consist of authors from the Bushe-Marshak Institute series on Dialogic OD
There is no charge to participate, but you do need to register as numbers are limited. If you cannot attend, the salon gathering will be recorded and available in the days following the event.
Please share the invitation with others in your network who may be interested in attending.
We plan to host more of these conversations in the future and hope you will join us. If there are topics you are particularly interested in please let BMI know by emailing email@example.com
