In this Friday Afternoon presentation, Mark Hayward takes us through Michael White’s Statement of Position Map 1 and how these enable externalising conversations. Within this presentation Mark will also invite you to chart an externalising conversation. Included below are a number of related documents and a PowerPoint presentation to accompany this DVD. This Friday Afternoon video is therefore a little longer than the earlier presentations (43 minutes). We hope you enjoy it! And we look forward to your participation in the forum. A transcript of Mark’s video is available here.

Please download the following interactive documents!
