other person?

belief system
Picture in your mind a meeting and watch the
content, the procedures and the process.

2. Leadership
One’s belief system: difficult to see
• ‘Fish, tell me what is the
colour of the water you’re
swimming in?’
• The fish may well answer:
‘Water? What’s water?’
• Your watercolours are as it
were a Blind Spot
(Scharmer, 2009)
Proposal Honors Course Master Talents: Change Leaders in Research, Design & Management 20120918

2. Leadership
One’s belief system: how to hit your blind spot?
How to hit your blind spot?
• Make a commitment to a measurable,
visible result
•
Inquiry and Coaching on the progress on
this result: inquiry without judgement
good / bad
•
This produces insight in behavioural
patterns and your ‘way-of-being’: acting
‘more of the same’
•
Opens the possibility of acting differently,
adequate to a given situation

2. Leadership
‘Way of being: two different‘ways of being’
– Based on righteousness, judgements and opinions
• Looking for a dual perspective good-bad
• Skilled incompetence (model 1 Argyris)
• ‘Powergame’ based on being right: ‘yes-but’-conversations
– Based on‘being possibility
• Feeling free
• Acting adequately in a given situation
(Collin, J., 2010)

2. Leadership
‘Way of being’shows in‘yes-but’-conversation
‘Yes-but’-conversation costs:
• Relation
• Freedom of speech is small
• Energy, stress, health
• Vitality
Yes-but-conversations credits:
• Dominating, “don’t you tell me what
to do”
• Rightness: I am good, you are bad
• Justify: ‘yes-but’-conversation
• Take no responsibility for
unconscious drives (success formula
– stoprule)
• Not recognising differences

‘Way of being’ exercise: one creates
1.
Take a person in front of your eyes which
you don’t like so much.
2.
What are the judgment you have about this
person?
3.
In a minute you have a conversation with
this person. You have the door latch in your
hand, you open the door, you see the
person sitting around the table.
4.
What is happening in the conversation?
