Practitioner Development Programme

What is Practitioner Development

Two years ago I had a very strong inspiration to provide a different kind of learning resource for active Three Principles Practitioners.

It was clear to me that existing practitioners do not necessarily need further training, although they might want to focus on their learning, their practices and their impact.

For me, watching other practitioners work and discussing my clients with them was an extremely rich experience and one that is not widely available to practitioners. I developed The Practitioner Development Programme to provide this kind of learning to a wider group of the worlds existing practitioners. The experiences and outcomes for the practitioners on this programme tend to be impactful to the work they are doing, affecting the way they approach their work in ways that has often surprised them.

I have redesigned the programme, based on the experiences and observations of the first two years. I have retained and built on the impactful elements of the programme and also changed it to make it more accessible internationally without losing any of the engagement and richness. This is a programme I am very proud of based on its results and contribution to our field.

“In the sessions I have seen a whole new level of depth and subtlety that I hadn’t seen before. The confidence with which I’m working has fundamentally changed."

"Since I started this programme I have created a whole new business because I felt the sessions were a safety net that allowed me to go out, mess up and, learn new things and come back here, and have somewhere to explore them."

"One of the things that I find so valuable about being on this programme is that you are with other people who are actually doing this work, not just learning about the principles, but out there in the world doing the work.” ."

Programme Details

The programme is centered on being able to discuss our actual work and practices. I want participants to see the deeper themes and drivers in our work through the work we are all doing. The focus of the programme is our work, our clients, our objectives and our challenges. Each month there will be:

At least two recorded sessions of Aaron working with  a client. These will include as much variety, client types, issues and focus as possible.

A 1.5 hour webinar for discussions and questions about the client session or your clients and work.

Webinar recordings for playback. 

During the webinars we will have a chance to:

  • Discuss the client sessions. You can ask Aaron questions and share observations to get as much learning as you can from watching the sessions.
  • Bring up and discuss the challenges in your work whatever they might be.
  • Open question and answer time to ask about whatever would be most useful for you about your
    work and clients.

To some degree you set the focus of the programme. Aaron and the client sessions are just a support for your learning. If you have a certain client of type of client you want to see Aaron work with, this can often be arranged. In the last two programmes Aaron worked with a number of clients put forward by the participants. During the webinar discussions, the rest of the group can also be as much of a resource for you as Aaron and it is fantastic to see how the different themes and challenges come out in different people’s work.

Virtual Retreats

In addition to the monthly recorded client sessions and the monthly webinars, the programme will open with a virtual 2-day retreat and close with a final 1 day (or 2 half-days) virtual retreat. These were added as Aaron thought it would be lovely to have time to be together and connect, to start and finish the programme together. There will be recordings of these events for those that cannot attend and they are not compulsory. They are an added resource that we think will make the programme richer.

Opening 2-day retreat

At the opening retreat we will have two days together. The retreat will include a previously recorded client programme (Aaron working with a client) and a chance to discuss those sessions. These two days are also a chance to get a feel for the foundations of the programme and for Aaron to get to know you.

Closing 1-day retreat

This retreat will be a chance to get together again (virtually), share and reflect on the year's programme. In the last two programmes this has been a very rich element.

2020/21 Schedule

The webinars will be scheduled according to the time zones of the participants. So we are able to include you no matter where you are based. Each webinar will have no more than 25 people attending. So there will be time and space for everyone over the duration of the programme.
