We obviously do not know how you got here, but we are happy you have come. And, we are Chris and Mat. We both like writing, and talking, about the complexities and simplicities of life, about working in groups and leadership, and about learning and teaching both in the chaotic and the virtual worlds. We both have years of experience in language and communication, education and training, management and leadership. We believe that it is time that we share our ideas, our expertise, and our insight with a wider audience.
Look around a bit more. We started building Panta Rhei in 2019. The site has grown steadily. So, explore and come back often. Or why not join the growing group of people who follow the Panta Rhei Blog? [In case you are wondering, the relevant button is in the top-right corner of each page or underneath the text and comment box, if you are reading this on your phone.]
What we do
Years of learning, reading, listening, experiencing, doing, reflecting, leading, following, smiling, crying, talking, writing, … Then some time in 2019, we started thinking about sharing our ideas and insight more widely and through channels that are new – and old – to us. In conversation, we realized that our ideas and aspirations are compatible and that this work can be more effective – and is more enjoyable – when collaborating.
Currently, we are concentrating on the Panta Rhei Blog. Podcasts, speaking engagements, workshops, consultations, webinars, … will be added later. [We are working full time as team leaders, teachers, and researchers and participate actively in this weird and wonderful thing called life on most days. So, time for Panta Rhei has to be carved out, which we find as challenging as the next person.] Our blog posts are under three broad, distinct yet interrelated topics. Each topic also has its own menu item and webpage, so that related posts can be found more easily.
A model for improving any practice (especially for leaders!). Chris introduces each pillar — Boundaries, Accountability, Support, and Expectations — in its many facets.
Under this topic, Mat blogs about timely concepts, practices, and reflections, which are relevant to trainers, teachers, coaches, mentors, and, of course, learners.
We are thrilled to see what will happen once this site and its blog are (more) content-rich, and hopefully also a good read (and listen). Especially on the Panta Rhei Blog, we are very interested in what you think. Feel free to leave us a comment or two.
We had decided to build this site for everybody to see every step of the way. Regularly, we add content, improve the structure of the pages and posts to make your perusal more fruitful and enjoyable.
We need your input and help in building Panta Rhei. Both Chris and Mat think better, work better, perhaps also write better in exchange with others. Let us know what you think, how you feel about a particular post, a set of ideas, or a single sentence.
Get in Touch
And if you do think we can be of service – with a consultation, a presentation, a workshop – let us know.
