"Dear Margot Your thought: "(SALT is ) about being curious, but not intruding" made me think a lot. I am genuinely curious, but as you say, it is also important not to intrude. I think that there are occasions when I find the balance…"

What is SALT for me?

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 individual, of the community and of…See More

Don't make assumptions!

Salt-visit at Worldhouse in Amsterdam, November 6th 2017During 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 make assumptions.…See More

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.

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…

On-line SALT course. Module 1, exercise 1: reflection on Amber's story

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…
