Teaming Seminar

This past week we met with a small group of clients and professionals in our first seasonal inspiration seminar at Kornhamnstorg. Our theme was Teaming. Participants first jointly explored recent personal experiences of good meetings and bad meetings and came up with factors that made the specific meeting experience a good or not so good one. We then linked these personal experiences to Teaming, a developmental process within which a workgroup strives to work as an effective team by concsiously and continuously train and use fifteen specific skills. We then introduced the systems centered theory for group development and linked this theory to the Billman Engquist Teaming skills. Thank you dear participants for coming, and for contributing with your time and energy which resulted in curious questions, answers, discussions and shared reflections. It feels like we began forming a group climate of shared exploration!

The Police as a Point of Focus

During the year the police authority radical reorganization proceeded. Meanwhile, the media have drawn attention to the police as a profession, both in terms of resource needs, workload and risk missions . This not least as a result of the recent terror deeds in Paris, the increased risk classification to level four in Sweden, and the influx of migrants. Amongst our various clients, we have continued this year of supporting the swedish police authority with professional role supervision in work teams . We are humbled by the police challenging tasks, and especially this year when the reorganization takes both time and mental energy, while the limited resources seem to be needed everywhere at the same time ..

Summertime is time for play

Summertime i time for play, let your fantasy spin, and your jokes..One can play in rain and in sunshine, in coldness and in heat… I played in 40 degrees heat in Tuscany. Building a treasury track in a tiny village that we passed on our roadtrip. It was our way to congratulate and surprise a friend living in that village on his birthday, who was unaware that we had passed. The price I payed was a lost I phone 6 (blaming the heat) but I won even a more peaceful vacation. Wishing you a fine end of vacation relax and play, also welcoming you to share curiosities with us at work in August!

This was the theme of our last exploratory seminar that we regularly offer our clients free of charge.
We had a great exploratory afternoon together with a bunch of leaders from various branches and organizations,
We linked systems centered theory to peoples´dencency for mental” time travelling”, distracting us from being here and now in the various work tasks. We spoke on how to get back on track showing a simple model. Last but not least, we discussed our various relations to dance inspired by one of the participants who is a leader in a dance organisation. Thank you dear participants for making this seminar both interesting and fun!

Can negative feelings be positive for a work group?

This was the theme of our latest free customer- and collaborator seminar. We began with participants´ own experiences of work in groups where negative emotions affected collaboration and performance. We then sorted out the concepts of frustration – irritation and anger and described the advantage of recognizing these different expressions of negative emotions through behavour. We shared our view of frustration=energy, and together with the seminar participants we explored how such frustration can be caught up in a work group and converted into functional work energy. We thank those who attended for your contribution to inspiring conversations and reflections!
