• Affectively - Embodiment: the new basis for collective organising with Emmanouela Mandalaki and JD Nasaw | The HOW

    In this episode of Affectively Alicía interviews Emmanouela Mandalaki from a research perspective and JD Nasaw from a practice angle. Together we discuss the topic of embodiment, it contains the word “body” and, at the same time, it keeps being so abstract for me…Emmanouela and JD help me get into new dimensions of this concept and I make the classic mistake of wanting to get to very much the specifics and next steps…not always the best idea :)

  • Affectively - Circle Practice: A Format to Model Self-Organizing with Ria Baeck | The HOW

    In this episode of Affectively Alicía interviews Ria Baeck, a long-term self-organising, collective presencing, and trauma-informed practitioner, as well as a coach and therapist. 

    We go back to the basics of hosting and self-organising by diving into “Circle Practice”. Ria walks us through the basics, common-pitfalls, dos and don’ts and we explore together the role of emotions in this key collective practice.  It was a treat for me to go through this sort of gentle and deep masterclass. It’s always good to review some “basics” and, especially, when such a simple format can hold and offer so much depth and complexity. It’s always a learning process.

  • Affectively - Emotions at Work with Tomomi Sasaki | The HOW

    In this episode of Affectively, Alicia interviews our very admired fellow member Tomomi Sasaki. Tomomi runs together with other colleagues a programme called Emotions at Work. As simple as that…and so challenging that we even forget that emotions are with us continuously and that they can play in our favour if we learn to be aware of them and move through them. 

    Tomomi talks about the coaching framework she and her colleagues base her work on and she gives me a present in the form of one of the most insightful questions I have heard in a long time: when you are working on a project, how do you want to feel? Unconsciously, I think this has been one of the strongest compasses for me in the past couple of years when doing my work, but now that I’m aware of it, I feel that I have much more agency and have gotten to the heart of one of the things I care the most about. One more reminder that it’s not only what we do, but also how we do it and how we can bring this into consciousness. Thanks Tomomi!

  • Affectively - Peeling Onions, the New Learning Paradigm with Wendy Freeman and Dorian Cavé | The HOW

    In this episode Alicía talks with Dorian Cavé and Wendy Freeman from the Deep Adaptation Forum (DAF) about the Decolonising Circle they co-organised within DAF. Alicía connected with them to discuss the Wenger Trayner social learning model, but the chat about their learnings on the circle was so interesting that we didn’t get there… maybe for a future episode!

  • Affectively - Collaborative Fantasies and Practices in Greaterthan with Elena Denaro | The HOW

    In this episode of the Affectively mini-series on The HOW, Alícia has a conversation with Elena Denaro to reflect on the main insights and learnings from writing a first version of her academic paper.

    Alícia and Elena also engage in reviewing some of the main concepts present in the paper that can help you reflect on your own collective, network, community or self-organised endeavour.

    The current version of the paper looks very different (although all old learnings still hold) from how it looked back in July when the podcast was recorded…more on the current version in another episode!

  • Shared Leadership: How to Distribute Authority and Autonomy in your Team | The HOW

    Venturing beyond the conventional model of leadership - where the boss, the hero, and the visionary take center stage - we delve into a transformative paradigm shift towards a shared, democratized model of leadership. A model that empowers each individual, fostering a sense of collaborative culture, and promoting leadership development at every level. In this episode of The HOW, Susan Basterfield, Lyssa Adkins, and Francesca Pick take us on an enlightening journey exploring new practices and mindsets for leadership, exploring the power of distributed leadership, amplifying transparent communication and power sharing, ultimately transforming the way we perceive and enact leadership.
