Claire writes: ‘We spent a great summer day at Aldenham Country Park in 100 Aker Wood. There is even a bridge to play Pooh Sticks – where you drop a twig into a stream and watch it float under the bridge. It goes fast and it goes slowly. When it gets a bit stuck, it might need a gentle nudge from the bank with a longer stick to help it get back in flow before it makes its own journey again.
Conversations are like that – if the aim is to be talking to enable someone to think something through, they only need a nudge here and there. If we keep asking questions or putting in our own ideas, it’s like restricting the flow of a twig in a stream by controlling it from the banks.’
