It starts with people

Started Dec 12, 2017 0 Replies

A few months ago we (our triad called Nemo) started the online SALT-training. We just reached module II 'Who are we?'. Last year I started to write blogs on my website (and paused after a few months…Continue

Profile Information

Margot de Ruiter
How did you know about Constellation community?
A friend told me about someone who was 'involved' in projects around the world.
Self employed
About Me:
I'm a connector: between people, between ideas, between the other and me. I do that as a trainer, coach, group coach and interim manager.
My dream:
My dream is to contribute to a world in which people cooperate in a way that does right to humanity. A world in which people learn to see the different perspectives and will honor those perspectives. My dream is a world where every human being (better: every living creature) can live in dignity.
I'm proud of:
The transformation I went through the last 1,5 year. That I designed (with a friend) a training for personal leadership and team coaching and gave this training for a ngo in Lebanon.

What has helped to arrive at these conclusions?

Posted on January 14, 2019 at 5:44am 3 Comments

Rituu asked in reaction to my post 'What is SALT for me?': "How have you arrived at these conclusions? what has helped?"

What helped me was: sit and look inside, feel what a SALT-situation would need, like it is an entity on its own. Does that make sense to you Rituu Nanda? 

How will I remind myself trusting the SALT-process?

In her comment to my blog 'What is SALT for me?' Birgitta Schomaker asked 'How will you remind yourself of trusting the process?' It is not easy to answer that question. Probably it is: stay' with what is there, what is trying to happen. Even if I don't understand it. Keep saying to myself: Stay, stay, stay. And design some alarm bells in my head: when I catch myself on steering in a certain direction, or on wanting to speed up. When I here the 'ding' I have to say to myself 'STAY'.

What is SALT for me?

Posted on October 25, 2018 at 2:21am 4 Comments

Today, Thursday 25th October 2018, I was interviewed by Anu about the online SALT-course my triad finished last summer. 

Preparing for that interview I was pondering about (among more) the question 'What is SALT for me?'. That is a powerful question that made me look inside and find answers I wasn't aware of before.  I like to share some thoughts with you.

For me SALT is:

- Respect for the individual, for the community and for the world.

- The wisdom of the…

Salt-visit at Worldhouse in Amsterdam, November 6th 2017

During the visit I liked a lot the conversation I had with a woman who was colouring a mandala. I started talking to her in English (because we were talking English with the men). It turned out that she was speaking excellent Dutch. I didn't know if that is her mother tongue. What I realized: I automatically spoke English to her because that was the mode I was in. 

Learning point in a situation like the Worldhouse: don't…
