What is Change Exploratory

One of the most profound quotations I know is :

The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them’ (Einstein)

We all know a lot about the problems.  We have been dominated by an aspiration for ‘economic growth’, never mind that mental illness and obesity have been rising year on year, that families and communities have been fragmenting, that we’ve been messing up the environment and losing contact with the natural world.

Moving to a different level of thinking isn’t easy – if it was we’d all have done it a long time ago.  The Change Exploratory has been set up to support people in their change journeys, as they move to a different level.

What would a different level be like ?

Imagine a world where ….

  • where each of us had the humility to know we didn’t have all the answers

  • where we learnt to listen deeply to people with different perspectives and experience

  • where we weren’t so rushed that we never had the time to calmly reflect on what matters most and how things are connected

  • where great conversations were a normal part of life

  • where we were constantly learning, evolving, adapting

  • where the needs of the environment and community (now and into the future) were prioritised over an illusory goal of never-ending economic growth

  • where people doing good work were well-networked and learning from the good work and the learning of others locally, nationally and globally

  • where each of us had a clarity about how we can best contribute to the needs of the world

  • where we truly were the leaders we had been waiting for

This is the world The Change Exploratory wants to join with you in co-creating.


We live in the most amazing times.  Amazing problems, but also amazing people across the entire world who are moving their thinking to a different level.  One of the things that will be critical in our current stage is the way we network, learn from each other and build on each others’ successes and failures.

The Change Exploratory actively participates in a number of leading global networks of change agents (e.g.  ‘The Art of Hosting’ community, ‘Association of Sustainability Practitioners’, ‘ALIA – Authentic Leadership in Action’ etc).  These networks provide sources of inspiration and share the very best learning innovations as we move forward together.


No-one has all the answers.  There is no one route to success.

Doing change better will depend on an integration of best practices, a deep appreciation of specific contexts, a personal openness to change and an attention to how we learn. No-one can do all this on their own.  If you would like to discuss how you are approaching change and how you (and those around you) might be able to move to a different level of thinking, then please call Chris on 0(0353) 87 243 3691 or by e-mail to chris [at]
