MADE as a place to exchange and design together - 2

MADE as a place to exchange and design together - 2

Vorige week organiseerden we een ‘Make a Difference Event’. Geen jubileum of lustrumviering, geen strategische conferentie, maar een experiment om ruimte te creëren voor collectieve reflectie en onderzoek - door onszelf en anderen uit ons netwerk - naar de vraag: wat willen en kunnen we nog meer neerzetten om bij te dragen aan het welzijn en leervermogen van individuen, wijken en organisaties.

Het vorige blog beschreef de aanleiding en focus, hier een impressie van wat er gebeurde toen 250 betrokken en bevlogen mensen in één ruimte samen kwamen voor drie dagen, en we ze uitnodigden om hun verhalen, ideeën, vragen en dromen te delen en om te zetten in creativiteit….

On MADE: our Make a Difference Event - 1

On MADE: our Make a Difference Event - 1

Last summer, the realization that Kessels & Smit, The Learning Company would turn 40 this year inspired a lively conversation within our group. Main question: what is our contribution and place in this current day and age and what do we want it to be for the next timeframe? What kind of company are we and do we want to be? What are our strengths, our DNA, our purpose and what doe those mean on a practical level in todays world? What can we learn from our past and how do we envision our future?

We soon realized that we didn’t want to investigate these questions by ourselves. So we decided to invite others with similar questions and aspirations to join us. Not to assist us in our search, but to engage in their own search – and thereby collectively creating a space for inquiry and creativity. We thought that would inspire us and challenge us to look beyond our own frames. Besides, the idea that we could use our own quest to inspire others in theirs, energized us. Could we use our own questions, rather than any answers that we might have, to create a space for learning and investigation?

When Appreciative Inquiry leads to transformational change

“Appreciative Inquiry has the potential to unleash transformational change.” Professors Ron Fry and Gervase Bushe agree upon that. “It has been proven, in practice, but also by research. So the real challenge now is to figure out how to really make that potential come true.”

They delivered a keynote speech during the World Appreciative Inquiry Conference. In the first half they stressed the generative nature of AI, during the second part they explored different things we can do as AI practitioners, to increase the impact of any AI intervention.

Appreciative Inquiry: it's about more than positivity

Appreciative Inquiry: it's about more than positivity

Appreciative Inquiry is about engaging people in lively dialogue and reflections around powerful questions in order to foster development. 'A human system moves in the direction of its questions', is one of AI's core principles. So asking the right ones is key, those that bring energy and new ideas.

At the Fifth World Appreciative Inquiry Conference last April, prof. Ron Fry and prof. Gervase Bushe, held an interesting keynote on this generative nature of AI. As Ron Fry puts it: “The most amazing aspect of AI to me is that it always sets people in motion. Few begin an AI summit wanting more work to do; nearly all leave having volunteered to new cooperative action. Something happens: we call it generativity.”

Berlin: looking for the secret of innovation and learning

Berlin: looking for the secret of innovation and learning

It is a well known 'recipe' for pop artists struggling with their inspiration: if you ever lose your 'flow', the best place to go to is Berlin... Submerging yourself in this city's energy and creativity is guaranteed to help you rekindle your own flow. Will the city have the same effect on consultants and coaches? Not that we are running short on inspiration - on the contrary!! - but more is always welcome. Berlin seems like a great place to visit and learn from. So we're planning a study trip! Well... more of a discovery tour....
