Hi Hello - it's me again ..........

Have a few hours at an airport again.
Cannot not click you way.
Because I buzz
But not fly
for at least 2 hours
usually longer due to

It is great working with the same team over a period
Designing a process of team building
people work
most of all
self management.

"Leadership is not so much about technique and methods
as it is about opening the heart.

Leadership is about inspiration—of oneself and of others.
Great leadership is about human experiences, not processes.
Leadership is not a formula or a program,
it is a human activity that comes from the heart and
considers the hearts of others.

It is an attitude, not a routine".

It is great to clock their listening ability

In a climate of trust
ears unblock
arms unfolded
body movements forward
continuous learning
from each other
concrete application
and reflections.

There are very real challenges here. Unique. The journey on the course is able to divert and deal with an issue which is of concern to one member. And we all learn from the process. As usual it is a process of dealing with a challenge 'strategically' rather than going into it on a wing and a prayer. It is a one person issue but it became a team one. What could be better for team cohesiveness.

Today we did ::
Level Five Communication
Transactional Analysis
Listening Skills
Observation Skills
Presentation Skills
Self Awareness
Reflective Practice
Reverse Empathy
Programming Participation

May sound dry to you. Electric for me. Just listening and reading the passion from those in front of me is such a privilege. I drink in their energy and abilities and I loveitloveitloveit ..........
