Inspiring Capability in Organisations

At Training Attention we create intelligent networks of attention across groups, enabling them to make the most of the experience and expertise of each individual present.

Our mission is to support leaders, in all sectors, to build collaborative, sustainable, peaceful and highly effective organisations.

Our vision is to grow our network, slowly and intelligently, in local and global partnerships, testing and refining our work and supporting the world to move from contempt and conflict, towards curiosity and collaboration.

A more cost effective and cleaner way of creating change in an organisation

 When people are experiencing problems in their business, they often look for external consultants or resources to help them out – rather than considering whether they may already have the resources they need within themselves, their team or their organisation. In this 5-minute video clip I talk about how I help people to develop their own home-grown solutions using the expertise in the group.

A New Way Forward

Over the last few months we’ve been busy restructuring our business, our offerings, our website and our team. The main reason for all of this activity is that Marian Way and I have become business partners, combining the strengths and expertise of Training Attention and Clean Learning.

Northern Taste of Clean - mini-book launch

A warm, local book launch with people who featured in different chapters of the book, along with family and friends. This video is a great opportunity to see into the atmosphere of the Northern Taste of Clean, and to gain an intimate view into the support network that got this book written.

The First Systemic Modelling™ Core Skills training - Module 1 complete

Training managers, facilitators and coaches from across the country met this week to learn how to create the conditions for groups to collaborate.

They were three days of fun, tears, learning, laughter and Ayurvedic food. The latter isn't actually part of the training but Shaun felt that if we were modelling our unconscious processes and developing group level processes we could add in another layer of finding food types to keep us healthy.

We always knew it would be a pilot and there was some unexpected learning.


Caitlin Walker on TEDx

Caitlin Walker, founder of Training Attention, has written her first book about this work, "From Contempt to Curiosity: Creating the Conditions for Groups to Collaborate using Clean Language & Systemic Modelling."

She spent 15 years working with diverse groups from disaffected teenagers to senior leaders in business and education. Along the way she developed Systemic Modelling, a methodology for encouraging groups to move away from drama and towards collective trust.

The book plots her journey from being an innovative youth worker to developing a highly-sought-after business consultancy, through a series of authentic and ground-breaking stories.

You can read how Systemic Modelling has been used for developing collective trust within classrooms, businesses and communities which in turn creates a context for groups to make the most of one another’s expertise and experience and to begin to collaborate in new and emergent ways.
