Hosting Accenture Interactive @TH AB

What is data-driven marketing? Patricia Mock and Elise Bonacina from Accenture Interactive answered this challenging question. Our students had interesting questions, especially when it came to data security. We broke up diverse perspectives. Not easy to answer, but worth to reflect on! Issues of our time that seek for answers.

EIL Workshop @foodsharing Munich

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to facilitate an effective innovation leadership workshop for the foodsharing leadership team in Munich.

We started with self-responsibility. Therefore we discussed how values affect the group co-creation process and what kind of strengths each individual wants to bring into the foodsharing work context.

As well the group created work packages with timing and responsibilities until the end of this year.

Great for me to experience how well I can hold and moderate experienced and critical leaders.

I was also impressed by how deeply hidden topics could show up and workshop participants who started critically have left the workshop thankful and positive.

A special thanks to the whole group for their trust and commitment as well as the experience and insights.

Key Summary

  1. you cannot understand a system unless you change it
  2. you cannot change a system unless you transform consciousness
  3. you cannot transform consciousness unless you make a system see and sense itself

To perform, we need to first do inner work by answering two questions: “who am I?” and “what do I want to cause?”

We need to foster curiosity, compassion, and courage instead of fear, cynicism, and ignorance.

Let us co-create something new, something better with our hands, heart and head. It is not only about individual reflection, it is not only about team or organizational development. It is about a systemic change.

In practice, this involves activating the deep learning cycles, strengthening sources of well-being, establish food as a medium for healing, create businesses that follow a purpose, generate capital that transforms the system, and establish an awareness-based collective action.
