Today, Guido Dulos and I visited RaboBank International. We provided our workshop “making your work visible”. As always this workshop is challenging and exciting because the real content is determined by the participant. For us trainers this means we cannot prepare everything and have to adjust our plans to the context.
But the workshop was quite a success. We discussed the personal visibility. What do you show of yourself and what do others think characterizes you. We made “contact graphs” and combined them together. Highlight is the “wish list” exercise. A story I love to tell and like a participant proclaimed “we never discus these things with our colleagues, but we should!” At the end of the workshop, we made an inventory of actions that can be taken in order to increase the visibility and value of the team and its output.
It was a nice afternoon, that was judged as too short. But then time flies when you’re in a good session with each other…
