While you are waiting for me to finished the next chapter I thought you might be interested in an Danish article that I’ve just got translated to english. I wrote it for the Danish Ministry of Education and is based on interviews I did with a project group I facilitated for almost two years. I’ts called: “Can you dance you name? – about teachers, teaching and learning environments” Download the article here. You don’t have to be teaching children, young people or university/college students to find it interesting (or even inspiring). If you ocassionally involve elements of training in your consultancy jobs I’m sure you’ll find inspiration there too....Read More
I got a mail. And then I started thinking because of this mail. And then I asked if I could publish this short mail correspondence. Got a yes, made a small editorial intervention to make the text more obvious. I hope you will find just as inspiring as I do. Thank you Svea for mailing! Be aware that Svea asks to field of coaching and I answer in the field of large groups/consultancy.

Preparation: Simply point out the 1 and 10 in the room. Instruction 1. Think of something you would like to learn/be good at in the upcoming weeks/months/year: – A skill, professional tool, a habit you would like to change etc. – It can be in your work or in your private life. 2. 10 is the CONFIDENCE that you are going to achieve the above goal. 1 is the opposite: Please place yourself on the scale where you are right now. 3. Turn to the person closest to you and share: – What is already clear to you that give you (that much) confidence? – What else? 4. Everybody: Now turn your back to the 1 and look at 10. Please stand 1 higher up the scale. Turn to the one closest to you (might be the same might be different) and share: – How will you know that you have reached this further step? – What will be different? – What else? 5.
