"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. The true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige, and even his life for the welfare of others.”

Martin Luther King Jr

Above all else Sally Duxfield is an Experiential Architect, which is a term that is still sometimes met with a slightly blank stare, so if you read just a little further down this page, she’ll tell you exactly what that means.

Sally’s 30+ years’ experience - including studying neuroscience, leading high performance teams, and owning/directing Makahika Outdoor Pursuits Centre - speak to these favourite things impeccably. In other words, she lives and breathes the things she loves the most. The way life ought to be lived.

Her top three favourite things in life are being outdoors, learning new things, and taking command of a space. So it’s really no surprise that she’s built a career in leadership training (and she’s actually bloody good at it).

Throw in a gorgeous collection of fine gins, a delicious affinity for new shoes, and a wicked amount of sass, and there you have her: Sally Duxfield in all her ineffable glory.

Experiential Architecture can be most succinctly described as the art of connecting theory and strategy with human emotion. Traditionally we have black and white leadership models on one side, and personality assessments on the other. By combining the two, it reinforces our learning, it prompts us to change our habits, and we experience the learning rather than simply reading it. Learning becomes lived, leadership is long-lasting.

Winter is upon me and I have two major projects to complete.

#1 is the engagement and completion of my Oxford Executive Leadership Programme; about 15 hours a week of learning models, theories and articulating thoughts on leadership. #2 is completing the writing of my next book. This one is a Big Book. THE Big Book.

So, I thought I’d share a sample of where I’m at, my DRAFT introduction and the start of Chapter 1. Enjoy!

Some of you will still ponder the descriptor that I use, Experiential Architect.  And yes, I do get some phone calls now and then asking for me to design amazing, interesting houses.

This particular ‘title’ came from a coaching moment with a fine Australian leadership coach, Dan Collins. We were at a Thought Leaders Conference - in Sydney some years ago, and Dan was helping me narrow down ‘what I did to help people’.
