The main context of the Open Space discussion:
How can we build a work culture and management attitudes that inspire us to work together every day, energised.
We will focus on sharing positive stories and examples.
We will follow the Open Space format with a facilitator.
Topics will be collected on the day, prioritised by the group and then discussed in small groups.
HOW IT WORKS:
The Law of Two Feet means you take responsibility for what you care about -- standing up for that and using your own two feet to move to whatever place you can best contribute and/or learn. Four principles apply to how you navigate in open space:
Whoever comes is the right people
Whoever is attracted to the same conversation are the people who can contribute most to that conversation—because they care. So they are exactly the ones—for the whole group-- who are capable of initiating action.
Whatever happens is the only thing that could've
We are all limited by our own pasts and expectations. This principle acknowledges we'll all do our best to focus on NOW-- the present time and place-- and not get bogged down in what could've or should've happened.
When it starts is the right time
The creative spirit has its own time, and our task is to make our best contribution and enter the flow of creativity when it starts.
When it's over, it's over
Creativity has its own rhythm. So do groups. Just a reminder to pay attention to the flow of creativity -- not the clock. When you think it is over, ask: Is it over? And if it is, go on to the next thing you have passion for. If it’s not, make plans for continuing the conversation.
Looking forward to inspiring discussions with all of you!
