developing people

Welcome to Meus. We create and deliver learning experiences that help people reach their potential and master change.

Meus specialises in developing people. We use leading-edge, creative and collaborative approaches to unleash the talent of individuals and teams. We bring purpose, performance and possibility alive.

We are called “meus” for a very good reason! Central to how we work is to focus on both personal and collective outcomes; to achieve results that are for me as well as for us.

In this sense, we describe our work as “relational.” This means that we focus on developing self-awareness along with awareness of our impact on others; and we pay attention to the more-than-human world of environmental and social systems that support us.

Through our coaching, consulting, workshops and retreats we help people make changes that matter deeply, both at work and in personal life.

We combine individual and group experiences with interactive technology (including film) to ensure personal development and organisational transformation. We bring tools, skills, methodologies and approaches from a variety of sources, but the real magic of what we do lies in the ways we work with people to engage, inform, inspire, innovate and learn together.

  • Sustainability ‘SparkCatcher’ – Communicating with authenticity and impact, on-camera

    Chester

    5th to 6th October 2016

    The complexity of the inter-related issues around Sustainability – of environmental degradation, poverty, hunger and inequality to name only a few – raise intractable organisational, social and political challenges related to money, power and politics that are often overwhelming. Equally overwhelming can be the sense of isolation and helplessness experienced by dedicated professionals in this field. Whatever your sustainability background, ambition or specialism, you will face common and recurring challenges:

    • How can I have a real impact, and with whom might I usefully collaborate?
    • Why is it so difficult to ‘sell’ these ideas in my organisation and community?
    • How do I cope with the size, complexity and difficulty of this work without feeling overwhelmed and creatively exhausted?

    In this two-day gathering, we will draw heavily on the unique potential of on-camera film work (a process involving the use of video portrait making and documentary film techniques to help us pay considered attention to someone as they authentically express themselves) to help us explore how we can elicit our authenticity; and also, how we can speak with more personal presence, on topics of political importance.
