Spatulas and learning

March 20, 2008

Johnnie Moore passes on a cracking story that does a great job of capturing the (sometimes tiny) gap between control freaks/celebrity chefs and learners. Unfortunately I’m also reminded of a little challenge I talked myself out of a couple of years back when he put out an invite for a series of improv workshops. Ideal practice for consultant as learner and participant I said to myself – and then bottled it, although, thinking back, there was an urgent need to clean out the goldfish tank every Tuesday evening for three months so perhaps I shouldn’t be too hard on myself. So on the assumption that public commitment is harder to back out from – do you have any plans for a repeat Johnnie?
