The Walk and Talk

 

I am a great fan of walking and talking and incorporate this into my work whenever possible. In my experience something very powerful can happen when we integrate movement with conversation 

One of my favourite places to walk and talk is on the South Downs Way where I live. A few years ago I was invited by the producers of Ramblings (BBC Radio Four) to walk with John McCarthy and share why I love this particular stretch of the Downs and how I use it as part of the Executive Coaching.

 
Thanks for an awesome session today…
I got so much from you – lots of gratitude!

One of the best things that Anni introduced me to is the conversation in motion - walking and talking - there is something so powerfully simple about getting alongside each other, going for a walk, and seeing what comes up between us.
I try to convert as many of my 1:1 meetings to conversations in motion - whether in nature or in an urban landscape - it never fails to be surprisingly good
