On-line SALT course Module 2, Exercise 2: A space of trust

Posted on January 19, 2018 at 6:58pm 2 Comments

If I’m comfortable with the idea that we need to create and hold a space of trust? O yeah, of course!

My experience of being part of a group where no space of trust did exist: I felt alone; I was able to achieve acceptable results but I didn’t florish; everybody was working on his/her own; there was no synergy; sometimes I felt we were enemies.

When there is trust within a group, the result is far more than the sum of its parts; being and working together is fun, gives…

Module 1, Exercise 1: Reflection on Amber’s story

For me Amber’s story is a reflection of me feeling uncomfortable, not at ease and shy when I read about history at school: I never understood why people (or countries) would do (e.g.) missionary work. Already as a kid it made me angry. I didn’t use the words I can use now: for me it felt so disrespectful to impose something on others. And of course, I don’t know anything about how the missionaries acted and how they were received. I…

What do we have in common?

What do we have in common?

Before we (Nemo-group: Noemí, Amir, Birgitta and Margot) made our first SALT-visit we talked about what we would have in common with the people we were going to meet.

For me that is a very important ‘exercise’, because it takes me out of my head and brings me into my heart and feelings.

I like to share my experience about using the exercise ‘What do I have in common with’ in my everyday…

Why do we sit in a circle?

Posted on November 11, 2017 at 11:30pm 5 Comments

'Why do we sit in a circle' was one of the first questions I was pondering and writing about after starting the SALT-course. In fact, there were more questions: 'How does hierarchy impact meetings?', 'How do rank differences show up in meetings?', 'What does a non-hierarchical setting means?', 'How do you create a non-hierarchical setting?', 'What will sitting in a circle do?'. These are my answers, based on my experiences in private and business situations. 

When hierarchy is…
