When we set up the International Movement Teachers Association we wanted to create a genuinely inclusive organisation run on a less hierarchical model. It’s been quite a journey - learning new ways of being - transparency, equivalence...passing decisions of to those responsible for the area of work - and letting them get on with it! We ended up with a lot more than we had bargained for. More hard-work in some ways...but also a collective effort like no others, and intelligent decision-making that genuinely stems from collaboration and creativity. The biggest surprise for many of us is how heart-warming the process is - and how it supports the making of bonds between us.
