    How often do you walk away from a conversation feeling heard, like you put across the things you wanted to? Feeling relaxed, not frantic?

    And how often do you workshops produce those same sensations?

    If it’s less often than you’d like, Johnnie Moore can help, with his Unhurried model for conversation (and more).

    As facilitators, we can learn a lot — directly and indirectly — from this approach. Unhurried might make you think ‘slow’, but it’s not necessarily so. Rather than purely slowing down, Johnnie explores what happens when we add layers and awareness to our interactions. When we take time to share, listen, and reflect, the conversation sounds very different.

    In an increasingly demanding and results-oriented professional space, this is becoming a rare skill. And, as it becomes rarer, it will become vital that we reclaim the time and space to be unhurried.
