In our final Lab 1.0 session for the year, the group explored the above reading by Claudia Madrazo and Peter Senge (.article link below). Many of the ideas we have considered in the lab throughout the year are highlighted in this article. Participants were asked to choose just one quote which is relevant to their situation and explore it further.
I remember exploring a quote from that article a year ago and it has sat on my wall all year. So today I spent time reflecting on my thoughts and questions at the time, adding new ideas and seeing how much of that thinking is happening or in progress. There were so many ‘unknowns’ last year and this year it is so encouraging to see how this reality and vision is coming into being through collaboration and co-inspiration of leaders.
We also spent time exploring our role in the creation of generative social fields as well as supporting each other in our leadership challenges using the Case Clinic process, engaging in deep listening and to be in the service of each other.
It will be exciting to collaborate with this group of leaders as they continue to ‘build communities of collaboration and co-inspiration for system change’ in their own community, between learning communities as well as continuing their ongoing learning as we all work towards the LESNW vision.
