Diversity - Diversity Icebreaker for Team Development

 

As we’re warming up for next week’s New Diversity Summit– today let me tell you about the Diversity Icebreaker tool. 

 

 

 

Diversity Icebreaker is a team development product developed in Norway by psychologist Bjørn Ekelund and his company Human Factor AS.

A mechanical engineer friend of mine recommended this tool. she works as designer in a fast growing international high tech company with people from several cultures. She loved this tool!  

Here’s what she said:

Diversity Icebreaker makes people ask, reflect,listen and talk.  

If you can facilitate a group process you can facilitate a diversity breaker workshop.

It’s designed to create a non-judgmental atmosphere through personal sharing and fun interactions.

After completing the 10-minute questionnaire, we engaged in a set of fun group processes. In these few hours we developed a shared understanding of how to make best use of the diversity of our group.

Consciousness - What is that?

Why conscious Life – Conscious Leadership ? Let’s start today with what we understand with that word.

 

 

 

Definitions

There are many definitions:

Consciousness is the state or quality of awareness, or of being aware of an external object or something within oneself. the ability to experience or to feel, being awake, having a sense of self or soul.

Professor of psychology Max Velmans said "Anything that we are aware of at a given moment forms part of our consciousness, making conscious experience at once the most familiar and most mysterious aspect of our lives.”

Research and observations

Consciousness has been researched for the last decades with main focus on understanding what it means to be present in consciousness,  the typical research question being

"tell me if you notice anything when I do this"

You can also observe it from your own or another person’s arousal and responsiveness.

Self-Awareness - Beliefs

Let's look at beliefs and inner assumptions related to self-awareness

 

 

Your inner assumptions are the beliefs you use to organise your identity. Your beliefs define how you see your self and your relationship to the world. The following beliefs are often associated with self-awareness:

  • I am inherently worthy and secure
  • My worth and security come from within and are not made up by how others see me, or by how I perform
  • Inner development is necessary for the full deployment of my self
  • Full expression of my creativity leads to a meaningful legacy
  • I contain a mix of strengths and weaknesses, light and dark
  • Self-Acceptance is the key to accepting others
  • When I find unacceptable parts in others - it points to aspects of myself for which I have not been willing to be fully responsible

How does this fit your beliefs and assumptions? 

I propose you take some time today to reflect upon these!

Self-Awareness - What is that good for?

Let’s make this week a Self-Awareness week

 

 

I spent Saturday with fellow practitioners from The Leadership Circle Community, digging into Scaling Leadership throughout organisations.

A lot to share from that gathering, and I chose Self awareness because it came out as the most important dimension, as expected. 

What is it and what does a high score mean for your leadership?

Self-Awareness measures your orientation to ongoing professional and personal development, as well as the degree to which your inner self-awareness is expressed through balanced perspective and high integrity. 

Scoring high on self-awareness is a positive indication of your leadership! 

It suggests you actively pursue and value personal and professional development

You are an alive and vital person

Having developed your sense of purpose, you act from your inner center, consciously expression your core values

You are trusted to 'walk your talk' 

And people respect you as...
