About the Quartet

Our 2013 Workshop: Change Artistry

Our workshop this year is Change Artistry–becoming the person whose presence improves everyone’s chance of making a positive change. Among the topics we’ll be covering will be social networks, horizon planning, solution focus, problem definition, the use of stories, language as a tool, metaphors for change, rules and guides, resistance, diagrams, pictures, influence, personalities, negotiation…

The Change Artist Workshop will follow the learning principles used in the AYE Conference and PSL, principles that are among the most powerful tools of the change artist.

Want to join us? We’d love to have you. See this year’s workshop page, or go directly to registration.

Who is the AYE Quartet?

We are Esther Derby, Don Gray, Johanna Rothman, and Jerry Weinberg. The design of our AYE Conference changed the way many other conferences are designed. Our next goal is to change the design of workshops.

To facilitate your learning, we will still be amplifying your effectiveness. But, we’ll be using a workshop setting. We will be learning together for four and half days as a highly experiential and interactive group. You will work hard in that time, and your reward will be more learning than you can imagine.
