Transcript of "Generation now communication"

  1. 1. ♦ Generation Now - Leadership Training ♦ Pay attention to the little things Honor your agreements Take responsibility, don’t blame Speak your truth, support others Ask for what you really want/need The little finger reminds us that nuances are fundamental and important. The ring finger reminds us to honor our engagements, either by following through or renegotiating. The middle finger reminds us we are ultimately responsible for our own experiences. The pointer finger reminds us to think deeply before voicing our desires, because we might get them. The thumb reminds us to be empowered and to empower others. Communication Processes The Five Points of Power Prepared by: Simha Bode - September 2013
  2. 2. Operating from the I-in-Now Obstacles and dynamics from Theory U ♦ Obstacles to being in the present = “I - in Now” ✭Dynamics of Connection • Horizontal connection (outer) - Yourself to the world, people and organizations • Vertical connection (inner) - The lower self to the higher Self This deeper level of awareness allows us to break habitual patterns and respond differently in situations. This process of cultivating heightened awareness is called “Presencing”. This transformation in response-patterns changes individual and collective consciousness.
  3. 3. Theory U - The Eight Principles of Presencing 1. Energy flows to attention - Where you put your focus in a system is where your energy goes. 2. Flow through the three movements of the “U” - a. going down - observe, immerse yourself in the place of most potential. b. Going through the eye of the needle - place of stillness and knowing comes to the surface. c. going up - act in an instant, iterative process - prototype - small and quick to get max feedback. 3. Go to the edges of the self - open mind, open heart, open will - put yourself in other shoes - empathize 4. Pass through “the eye of the needle” - rebirth from death - the threshold - off load all that is no essential to bring new vision. 5. Transform the three enemies - a. Voice of doubt and judgement (stops open mind) b. Voice of cynicism (stops open heart) c. Voice of fear (stops open will) 6. Start by attending to “the cracks” - The openings, challenges, disruptions, where we feel past ending and future beginning. 7. Hold the space to transform debate to dialogue - This is the transforming quality in systems, relationships. 8. Strengthen presencing to avoid absencing - Absencing is “us vs. them”, one right way, fundamentalism, this is our blind-spot. Presencing is operating from our highest future potentials Video “The Essence of Theory U and Presencing“- http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=7lUyGBBcdJY “Excerpt from - Theory U: Leading from the Emerging Future - Presencing as a Social Technology of Freedom” - http://www.deres.org.uy/home/descargas/investigaciones/Theory_U_Intro.pdf
  4. 4. Clearly Expressing How I am without blaming or criticizing Empathically receiving how you are without hearing blame or criticism 1. What I observe (see, hear, remember, imagine, free from my evaluations) that does or does not contribute to my well-being: “When I (see, hear)...” 1. What I observe (see, hear, remember, imagine, free from my evaluations) that does or does not contribute to my well-being: When you (see, hear) .... (sometimes unspoken) Feelings 2. How I feel (emotions or sensation rather than thought) in relation to what is observed: “I feel...” 2. How you feel (emotions or sensation rather than thought) in relation to what is observed: “ you feel...” Needs 3. What I need or value (rather than a preference, or a specific action) that causes my feelings: “...because I need/value...” Observations 3. What you need or value (rather than a preference, or a specific action) that causes your feelings: “...because you need/value...” Requests Emphatically receiving that which would enrich your life without hearing any demands Clearly request that which enriches my life without demanding 4. The concrete action you would like taken: “would you like ....?” (sometimes unspoken) Non Violent Communication Rosenberg, Marshall - Center for Non Violent Communication http://www.cnvc.org 4. The concrete action I would like taken: “would you be willing to ....?”
