As a kid you were always learning, though you may not have realised it! Whether you were climbing a tree, doing a painting, or pretending to be on a horse (when you were really riding a bike); you were learning.
Imagine if learning could still be this much fun when you grow up? I believe it can be. That’s what Imagine If is all about; making learning fun and creating spaces for you to think differently.
When people have fun, it opens up their minds. They start to see things with different eyes, hear things with different ears and feel things without the usual barriers.
When this happens they create their own series of aha moments. Some will be small. Some will be huge. Each will be significant to that individual.
And because it’s significant to them, they will choose to change as a result of it.
Why leave all the fun to the kids? Let’s get more into adult learning too!
Hi I’m Cat. I love to learn and to share knowledge with others. It means that I quite often have an idea or two when people are looking for a new way of doing things or are looking for inspiration.
I think learning is really important in life – I’ve written more on this topic here.
I like to live an interesting life, never sitting still and always looking for another adventure or something to move me out of my comfort zone. I wasn’t always this way, but people change. It’s change that I want to make happen as part of Imagine If. I truly believe that if people are open to other possibilities and can enjoy exploring them, they are more likely to take on new beliefs and make change happen.
Sometimes it takes time to see that change, but planting the seed is the first step.
Over the years I’ve worked for a variety of companies in different roles. This has given me great experience of how things work in organisations and the important links between departments. It was when I began working in an organisational development role that it all came together. I realised all the skills I’d been building up over the years were taking me to this point. My passion for learning and helping others develop was renewed and I was able to see changes in the teams I worked with. Doing this in a single organisation wasn’t enough for me, so I set up Imagine If to be able to share this with other organisations who need help and t enable me to release my creativity into the world!
