This paper considers a particular creative process, entitled ‘Human Sculpture,’ as a professional reflective learning tool for groups and organisations. Along with other arts-based learning processes being used in professional management, the authors argue that the embodied characteristic of human sculpture can assist people to generate awareness of their senses and aesthetic sensibilities. In doing so it provides a unique form by which to generate information and to discuss that information. The metaphorical and artful nature of human sculpture engenders a different quality of discussion and an alternative journey by which to reflect on individual, group, and organisational life. This paper draws on the masters and doctoral research of the authors as well as their professional practice.
