HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL YOU VISUAL THINKERS & DOERS…

… WITH WHOM I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE TO WORK WITH AND LEARN FROM THIS YEAR. IT HAS BEEN A TRUE PLEASURE AND AN EXITING 2013, WHICH MAKES THE STAKES EVEN HIGHER FOR THE NEW YEAR…

It has been a beautiful yet busy autumn, which mean that I am a wee bit behind when it comes to updating my site with my latest adventures in the field of graphic facilitation,  participatory leadership training, capacitybuilding for more collaborative, resilient organizations, and more.

VISUAL RECORDING FOR GRONTMIJ

IMPLEMENTATION OF A NEW STRATEGY, IS BY DEFAULT ONE OF THE MOST THREATENING THING TO AN ORGANIZATION, BECAUSE IT MEANS CHANGE

… so how can we turn that threat into a possiblity for meaningful growth in the organization. This was on the agenda yesterday when 70 project leaders and managers was gathering at Bella Sky for a full day of inspirational conversation. For me, part of it, I guess is about start sharing a different story, and acting on it is important too.
Below two of the participants are presenting their insights on the action part.IMG_5497 IMG_5492

VIBORG MUNICIPALITY LOVES TO DRAW

OUR 2 DAY GRAPHIC FACILITATION TRAINING IS BECOMING POPULAR IN VIBORG AMONGST EMPLOYEES IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR…

And it makes me happy that people who are working jobs, that requires so much communication find the visual language useful in enabling that communication to be as clear and smooth as possible. We will be back twice during the autumn. I am looking forward to continue the work on the advanced courses in October.IMG_5483 IMG_5482 IMG_5479 IMG_5461 IMG_5460

DRAWING TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY

MY ANNUAL VISIT TO EINDHOVEN, DOING AN OPEN TRAINING HOSTED AT BY
‘THE FLEXIBLE PLATFORM’

Not only is the venue great for workshops, with big windows and plenty of space, the whole area Strijp-S is a bubbling innovative space where new ideas occupy old factory buildings.
The training was characterized by ambition, motivation and slight impasion… very dutch ;-)

AN ESTONIAN LEARNING JOURNEY

WHAT IS THE TRUE ESSENCE OF PARTICIPATORY LEADERSHIP TODAY?
WHAT IS MY ROLE AND PERSONAL PRACTICE AS A LEADER?

Those were some of the questions we explored in a beautifully hosted gathering in Sänna, Southern Estonia. The Art of Hosting is a way of working and being together that promotes participation, collaboration, collective intelligence, and actions for positive change in the world. Along with exploring these questions the participants were practicing the methods and mindsets that enhance this way of working. IMG_5373 IMG_5391 IMG_5378IMG_5402
