Exploring Super-Resilience – with Alan Heeks and Daniel Koerner at Hazel Hill Wood


This day is an invitation to explore a practical vision of your front-line service team thriving and performing in the years ahead – despite all the pressures pushing against this.

ABOUT THE DAY: Years of shrinking resources and rising client demands mean that many front-line teams find the future outlook unimaginable. This day offers a supportive space and creative processes to face the issues and think well outside the box. We will explore together how you can approach your challenges and frustrations so as to extract insights and impetus for change, helping you to reframe your picture of the service you offer, and fully value and use the resources available. The style of the day will be a collaborative enquiry. We’ll use a range of methods such as future-scoping, back casting and deep ecology to help you seek insights and upsides amid the presenting problems. We will use the magical setting of this 70-acre wood, to provide space and inspiration for you to reflect and open to fresh insights, and as a model of natural resilience and catalytic change.

ABOUT THE WOOD: Hazel Hill is a magical 70-acre wood, with a great diversity of wildflowers, trees and fungi, providing a variety of landscapes and habitats. The retreat centre consists of beautiful off-grid wooden buildings, campfires and beautiful open spaces..
