We have an informal network of coaches and consultants who have an affinity with Blueprint. The network is inclusive and open to any coaches or consultants who believe that the purpose of business should benefit society and respect the dignity of people.
There is no formal structure or membership fee. People are welcome to engage at any level they wish.
We arrange regular meetings to enable members of the network to share and discuss their experiences and to meet other like minded people. The next meetings will be on 10th March 2020 and 22nd September 2020. If you would like to join us please contact Soulla Kyriacou.
The purpose of the network
- To help grow the Blueprint movement via coaches and consultants using Blueprint in their work with their clients and to guide their own businesses
- Ultimately, to create a group of coaches and consultants who can work with large corporates to help them use the Blueprint thinking
- To help companies working with Blueprint and who have their own preferred coaches and consultants by seeking to involve those coaches and consultants in the network
- To create a tribe of like-minded people who can listen to and learn from each other – in essence a community of learning and sharing
In order to maintain our independence and reputation as being independent, we will not accredit or endorse any coach or consultant and we ask that they do not hold themselves out to be accredited by us.
Summary of the last session – 17th September 2019
Below are brief summaries of the most recent sessions with some links to further information if you would like to find out more:
Sarah Rozenthuler – led a session exploring four types of organisational purpose – she explained that despite good intentions, many ‘espoused’ expressions of purpose are some distance away from the ‘actual’ purpose that the organisation embodies. In our groups we looked at how these four types of purpose related to each other in different organisations and how we might go about helping to better align the actual purpose with the true and espoused purposes of the organisation.

Tracy Skyrme, from Tapestries – shared insights from a live example of work she has been doing on purpose in a large corporate. She explored how coaches and consultants working with companies can sometimes feel. We explored this on our tables, discussing how we can embody who we are, how we can be close enough to be relevant but not so close that we are captured and other challenges we face in this type of work.
Julia Rebholz – shared insights from her work on shifting mind-set and led an experiential exercise asking us to explore how we felt when we are at ‘peace’. This uncovered a set of qualities that show up every time she has run this exercise, which she described as our ‘natural state’ when we are at ‘peace’ and when we are ‘still’. She then described work she has been doing with companies where their purpose acts as a signal and reminder of this natural state. If you are interested in hearing more about this here is a link to a program on 14 – 16th November Insight Principles : The Next Paradigm.
Rosanna Williams-Wood – described the work of The Trusted Executive Foundation with NAHL and discussed trustworthiness in business. You can find more information here: https://trustedexecutive.com. CLICK HERE to see a page from the NAHL annual report which explains how they have integrated the framework that Rosanna shared with us.
Tim Malnick – from Different Space – led a session exploring our unconscious stories about money as a powerful way to support purpose led and responsible work for individuals and organisations. You can find out more about Tim and his money work at his website: https://differentspace.co.uk/the-money-workshop/.
