New members of the family

People from different kinds of organizations met in Uppsala for an intense five-day program. From early morning until late in the evening they were eager to learn and use the tool of LOTS®. They learned the power of open questioning and questioning to the void, and that it is at its best when it emanates from our own curiosity.

Here are some comments from the participants:

– It was great meeting with new people and also deepen the relationship with my fellow colleagues, said Pär Sjöstrand from the Swedish Church in Jönköping. It was an insight how valuable it is to reflect together.

Pär Sjöstrand's colleague Maria Blomdahl added:
– It's so powerful that we deal with reality in every issue and not use case studies.

Jens Ingolf, another colleague, expressed that he appreciated being challenged in his way of thinking. He also appreciated Hans Akerblom's generosity in sharing his experiences with the group.

– I appreciated the continuous feedback and Hans Akerblom's patience with us, Ewa Strömsten from Karlskrona municipality said.

– Hans Akerblom's ability to create an allowing atmosphere was just great, giving us the best possible conditions for us to learn, Johan Hassel from Länsförsäkringar Östgöta said.

LOTS® in Saudi Arabia

Lotscoach® Stephan Stahl presented the philosophy and common language of LOTS® at the recent Learning & Development Summit of Sabic in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The participants showed a great interest in the tool of LOTS® and asked many questions to learn more. Sabic is ranked among the world’s largest petrochemicals manufacturers and has operations in over 50 countries with a global workforce of over 40,000 people.

Stephan Stahl is now preparing for another three days in Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia, where he will work with a Sabic subsidiary company.

Development days in November 2016

The network of people certified as Lotscoach ® met again in November in Uppsala.

Participants express how much they appreciate these days, and how much they value the possibility to meet with people from other organizations, exchange experiences, and learn more on how LOTS ® can be applied. They also appreciate the format of smaller groups and the frequency.

One cornerstone of LOTS ® is to ask open questions, to extract all available information.

– The art of asking open questions is something we all need to practice over and over again to be able to master it. To young children this ability comes natural, but at some point, on their way to adulthood they forget how, says Hans Akerblom, who enjoys these meetings, where the participants take further steps in their own development, very much.

The next opportunity to attend the Development days in the network will be on March 7 and 8. These will take place in Uppsala and will be held in Swedish. Make sure you save the dates. An invitation for people certified in LOTS® will follow in January.

Starting them young

The Boy Scout troop of Three Bridges, New Jersey spent an evening working with LOTS® and Leadership.

They discussed:

– What is leadership?

– What is good leadership?

– What is poor leadership?  

The troop then identified times in their life where they could take leadership roles. Adult Scout leaders also participated and offered mature guidance and some of their insights.

Betydelsefull utveckling för Econova med LOTS®

– Tänk vad fem dagar tillsammans kan göra för perspektivet. Detta kommer att betyda mycket för vårt företag, vårt team och för oss som individer, säger VD på Econova Johan Rydberg.
