We are in the middle of wild times that are only getting wilder. As leaders we need to reflect on how we're going to continue to take wise and timely action.
This online Learning Marathon will bring together a cohort of 12, each exploring questions about how our leadership can meet the challenges of the next decade, working to fend off the darkness and create islands of clarity where we can. Welcome to six months of reflection and action amongst peers.
Is it for me?
Do you consider yourself a leader (even a non-traditional one?) Have you thought about doing some additional study on leadership but found the whole thing just felt off?
Do you think we need to fundamentally shift how we learn to grow as leaders? Does the thought of leading over the next decade terrify you (but also light a fire in you)? Do you long for a weekly rhythm which allows you to listen, reflect and decide who you want to be and what is yours to build?
Do it to
Find depth and meaning beyond theories of leadership, distill what your unique perspective is as a leader
Grow your capacity to affect deep change in the world, to do your work in a way that shines a light for others
Upgrade your whole operating system, evolving your capability to hold more & do more, with your own flavour of wisdom
After 20 years as a coach and culture consultant, I'm now the head of Indigo, the new adult Trans Health Service for Greater Manchester.
I was a participant in the first Learning Marathon outside of London. I explored how to nurture spaces for interdependent leaders, and it changed my life! I'm queer, trans and an inclusive group dynamics nerd and I think constantly about how we fight for social and climate justice.
Meg has been amazing to work with as I navigate leading in complexity."

How do you approach diversity and inclusion?
We believe that placing peer-to-peer relationships at the heart of learning creates huge potential for a more inclusive approach to education. We also know that a very deliberate effort is required to deliver those benefits in reality. A top cited value point for Enrol Yourself participants is that they learnt alongside people they wouldn't otherwise have met and were able to exchange their perspectives, ideas, experiences and more.
We want to welcome and support anyone with a strong intention to take part in our programmes, and aim to ensure that your identity or background will not be a barrier. Whilst we don't have it all figured out yet, we are working on it.
What does the programme look like?
Over 6 months we meet every other week in the evening as a learning community, and the journey is punctuated by 'Power Up' sessions where we report back on our learning. Each person takes it in turn to collaborate and lead a workshop that helps us explore our collective learning question. We use our skills, experience and resources to support each other in our collective learning.
How much does it cost?
Cost ranges from £750 - £1650 dependent on your circumstances and finances. There are also a small amount of bursaries available. If you are able, we encourage you to contribute to our higher tier. This makes it possible to offer these lower cost places to those with less income: and makes it possible for you to learn as part of a more diverse group. We are aware that this is a financially precarious moment for many, so please reach out if you need support.
How do I apply?
The application process is simple. You can request more information at the bottom of this page, and feel free to reach out to Meg for an informal chat. If this feels like something that calls you then you can sign up via the application form. After the deadline Meg will find a time to speak with you, before offering a limited number of places.
What timezone will the meetups be in?
Meg is based in UK, meetups will likely be in the evenings during the week and daytime at weekends, UK time.
Do I need to be doing a certain kind of job to do this learning marathon?
No, all you need is a question around leadership to explore, and the desire to explore that question with a bunch of fascinating people!
