Only the brave

I would like to invite you to take part in something that, after 35 years in the education profession, I see as one of the most exciting programmes I have seen. We are looking for school leaders who would consider adopting this approach for developing your learner’s resilience and leadership skills.

“It was immediately obvious to me that this was something that could add immense purpose and value to our curriculum at all levels… Hearing students as young as eleven articulating their territory map was immensely powerful, and it was at this point that I realised the enormous potential of our collaboration with Anthony” Graham Malcolm Deputy Head (Secondary) Nord Anglia International School Dubai

Chris Jones and Anthony Willoughby lead an interactive discussion with respected educators, a Maasai elder, executives, students, an Everest summiteer and a member of the SAS to explore how we might all work together to create a totally fresh and exciting way to develop leadership in schools and organisations.

Each of the ‘panelists’ will talk about their own first hand experiences with Territory Mapping and The Nomadic Leadership Trust Wheel and how and where they believe the process might have a wider application in the field of education.

The Panel includes:

John Rolfe: currently Head of Arts (Music, Theatre and Visual Arts) at St Clare’s, Oxford and a leader of teacher workshops for the IB. Recently Anthony and Emmanuel Mankura remotely co-facilitated a workshop entitled the ART of Leadership which was well received by parents, students and teachers alike.

Emmanuel Mankura: a Maasai Elder who will be joining us from his village in Kenya. Emmanuel has co-facilitated many leadership workshops with Anthony in Asia and the UK and they have developed the Nomadic Leadership Trust Wheel together. Here is a link to Emmanuel’s TEDx Talk in HK.

Giles Jackson: a professor of business, sustainability and society at Virginia-based Shenandoah University, the first business school to incorporate territory mapping into the MBA curriculum. His students are incorporating territory mapping into hands-on consulting projects with clients in Africa and the USA.

Julian Stinton: has had a highly successful 35 year career in the RAF where he held leadership, strategy, policy, planning, intelligence, operations, mentoring and flying roles. He left the RAF ten years ago with the rank of Air Commodore. Since then he has held leadership roles in aerospace and media where he coached and mentored senior executives across a variety of business sectors. He brings fascinating and very relevant philosophies on how to lead and develop leadership.

Krishna Thapa: A Gurkha from Nepal who grew up in a traditional Nepali village, he was the first Gurkha to be invited to join the SAS, he has also climbed Everest three times and K2. He is well versed in alternative approaches to leadership and has joined many Territory Mapping sessions!

Roddy Millar is Founder of Ideas for Leaders who for ten years has published articles on leadership and promoted alternative ways to assist leaders create more ‘human’ organisations. Roddy has travelled to Kenya to meet Emmanuel in Kenya and is great supporter to Territory Mapping all areas of student and executive education.

By the end of the webinar we are a little further forward to answering the question:

“If we were the very ‘BEST’ in the world at assisting people develop the core leadership skills they need to be more successful and productive human beings what would we be delivering and how would we be doing it and where would we start?”

Chris has spent a life time in education and explains how he is currently assisting schools adapt their curriculum provision so that it is more possible to respond to the needs of learners.

Anthony, a veteran of roads less travelled, explains how he has adapted the lessons of his conversations with nomadic and tribal elders into a unique methodology which is currently being used to develop leadership schools in the UK and Dubai.
