We are drawn to people who share the same beliefs and have had similar relevant experiences. These groups give us strength and a sense of belonging. However, this creates a “self-sealing logic” that can lock out learning, because we state our beliefs as proven evidence. Every missed opportunity of collaboration, may it be at enterprise, organisation, or team level, is a symptom of our inability, as a group, to observe and learn from other group experience and set of values. We are here at the most important Agile Conference, seeking to meet people who have similar experiences, and eventually share same conclusions. What if we were about to create another bubble of “Self-Sealing-Logic” ?
The hands-on exercices used in the workshop use “Liminal Thinking”, the latest fabulous work of Dave Gray, combined with examples of “Third Culture Kids” profiles. The approach aims to support organisations become continuous learning entities, that reinforce leadership and trigger cultural shift.
Session’s main goals are :
– create a space of opportunity to “unlock” our own bubble of beliefs through a set of hands-on exercices,
– experience , through the open discussion during the exercices, how learning enhances leadership,
– allow the audience to discover Dave Gray’s “liminal thinking”.
We will learn to unveil the impact of our beliefs and start understanding why we have needed them. What were the relevant needs that lead to our assumptions?
On the other hand, during the session, we will pick some other “self-sealing logic” group and try to understand without judgement their own process that led them from their own relevant experiences to different beliefs.
