In my previous blog I told you about the first dimension of the triple dialogue, and I teased you to join my lecture for the secret that I will reveal during the congress. You will learn about one fundamental value that you need as a foundation on which you can effectively build your professional development.
I still keep this a secret, but I will tell you how to determine if someone is not building on that foundation.
Do you know people that are not willing to accept feedback, people that always point towards their environment? Probably you do. These are project managers that have finalized their personal story. Senior ladies or gentlemen that act as if they are experienced, but are deaf to any feedback at all. That become agitated when you try to break their shells of ignorance. Do you know them, or do you recognize yourself in this description? Than you need to know about this fundamental value that is not present at all.
When I came in to contact with it, I was about 45 years of age, and it revolutionized my life. It slowly made me more open to feedback, it gave me more balance and above all it triggered a professional development I couldn’t imagine. Without this foundation, this personal dialogue I told you about wouldn’t be possible at all.
When you start this dialogue you will prepare the ground for an effective one in the second dimension, that of sharing experience with your colleagues. This is about giving but also accepting the lessons learned by others, something different that trying to have the loudest voice in order to become the top dog. This is about building a community of collaborative learning. But more about that in my next blog.
Hope to meet you on the web, or on the second day of the conference on 14:45hr, September 30th in Diamond Room 2. More info>>
