This chapter describes an inter-professional learning workshop that I used when teaching a Masters programme in Leading Integrated Children’s Services. The workshop is creative in its use of storytelling and the cycle of development. When used together, and structured around the experiential learning cycle, the stories promoted reflection and metaphors for change, and the cycle of development offered self-awareness and clear developmental tasks to complete. This chapter will explain some of the context and go on to explain theoretical choices for each tool before going on to describe the pedagogical approach.
