    Abstract

    Purpose: Explores examples of leading edge corporate workspaces and innovative learning and development methods. Results: Advocates appreciating the complexities of the spatial relational dynamics of learning in driving new working practices Recommendations: As we concede the inadequacy of linear forms of communication, there is increasing recognition that spatial ecologies embracing mobility and flexibility can gear up individual and organizational learning Conclusions A ‘post kinetic’ lineage is evident as perceptual and motor-spatial metaphors pervade human conceptual language. The contemporary corporeal turn acknowledges this inheritance with the potential to liberate, or counter-intuitively impede, learning by people and organizations.
