I was asked to give a presentation about ‘a good conversation’ for 50 high ranked individuals in The Netherlands. They wanted to have a real conversation with each other. I combined in my presentation the idea of ‘Wholeness’ of Laloux with the four levels of listening and the three inner voices from Theory U. We did a fishbowl dialog afterwards and halfway I asked the ‘audience’ what they felt while listening to the people at the round table in the inner circle. I was touched and deeply impressed by their sharing. In the link you will find the slides that I used: Een goed gesprek
Over the years I’ve specialized myself to have good conversations with large groups. As Bohm states: you need 40 people in the room to get all the different viewpoints on a certain topic. The design of these meetings is important to have people feel at ease (‘build a container’) and is different every time. I like to give this a good thought and then letting it happen in the moment. Most of the time the meetings become very special to the participants.

Mooie combinatie van Scharmer en Laloux. Hun boeken staan op mijn leeslijst. En er is één ding waar ik constant op zoek ben geweest de afgelopen vijf jaar: een goed gesprek.
