http://teachertomsblog.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/talking-listening-and-thinking.html Managers also do that thing. So do consultants. That thing being the ‘narrowing the choices down to obey or disobey’ thing. Not a good thing.

Introduction

PleXity is my consultancy name.

I specialise in helping people think about key concerns and projects in different creative ways, using insights from complexity theory, biological and neurological sciences and the under-researched field of human playfulness.

I have been described by Roffey Park Institute in Surrey  like this: “Arthur Battram is a leading thinker, consultant and practitioner. He is also a writer, an editor and designer and a ‘critical friend’.”

I’m a speaker at national and international conferences. I’ve been a visiting lecturer and research associate at Manchester Business School, Aston Business School, Warwick University and the London School of Economics. My book, ‘Navigating Complexity: the essential guide to complexity theory in business and management’, was twice a #1 bestseller for the Industrial Society.

I have worked in these fields:

• consultancy; coaching; large group processes; education; teaching and writing
• management and organisation development
• children’s play; community development

“With more than twenty years as a trainer, coach and mentor, Arthur treats his subject matter as utterly serious and utterly playful, drawing on his deep experience of management, community development and playwork.”
