The Adventus Initiative: From Lock-Down to LEARNING and from Re-Set to RENEWAL

From our friend and colleague John Scherer:

When this lock-down started 8 weeks ago, an HR Director in Warsaw asked me if we had anything that might be helpful to their 4,000 employees who were sitting at home.

That request triggered me thinking about what we (a group of friends and change facilitators, including Gil Crosby) could do to facilitate meaningful conversations during lock-down: What might help people reflect on what had been working—and not working—and invite them to create a ’new normal’.

The result is here:

(22 minutes) A GoogleDocs link to the worksheets (also shown in the Vimeo details):

The planning group of around 40 people came from 14 countries made it a truly global effort.

I hope you will give it a try personally—and if you feel moved to, send it to your friends and colleagues! I mean, why the heck not?! (BTW, there is no copyright on this. It’s ‘open source’ in concept, so copy it, steal it, translate it, modify the heck out of it.)
