At this event, participants will be introduced to the Functional Fluency model in an interactive and participative way. Functional Fluency is a new way to think about how we channel our energy into productive or unproductive behaviours - applicable to all areas of our life. Functional Fluency was developed by Susannah Temple, PhD, a Certified Transactional Analyst who laterally worked in higher education. She was determined that her work should benefit broader society and accordingly she set up a not for profit organisation to facilitate sharing of her work. Now semi-retired, Susannah has recruited a group of volunteer advocates from a variety of organisations to share her ideas more broadly. At this session we will introduce the model, help you reflect on your own functional fluency and share some case studies of how the model can be used in various organisational applications from coaching to leadership development.
James Longwell is the People Development Leader for Google EMEA Sales based in London, a role he has held since December 2014. He is also a volunteer Director of the Fluent Self. The Fluent Self is a not for profit community interest company set up to promote the Functional Fluency model and associated 'actometric', the TIFF (Temple Index of Functional Fluency). Prior to Google James led International Learning & Organisaiton Development at NBCUniversal International and prior to that enjoyed a 10 year career at Cadbury which included time spent living and working in Singapore and Australia.
