Impression to our wanderings: photo's
Work meant facilitating The Dance of the Hero workshops for educators (EDUC7 Conference) and for entreprneurs (ACRE18 Conference).
That was great! The enthusiasm and the eagerness of the participants I experienced during the workshops was such, that it felt as contributing meaningfully to answer their needs. As teacher/educator I loved to work with students, teacher and school managers. The challenges the schools face are big! Passion, flexibility and creativity were the main concepts we worked on. As entrepreneur I loved to work with entrepreneurs, managers, consultants and organizations, too. The challenges they face nowadays are perhaps different but still big as well! Innovation/creativity power and open mindedness were the main concepts we worked on.
It was good to be at both EDUC7 & ACRE18. The congresses were different, so I could adapt my "The Dance of the Hero" to the different needs of different groups of participants. I like that (it's one of the basics of "The Dance of the Hero"!).
Oh, I loved to do my niteflite: a combination of performance (Hold on to the Wind...!) and workshop I myself learned a lot during both conferences, too!
Before returning to the Netherlands I was invited to facilitate an extra workshop for an Assurance Company in Pretoria (Sanlam)
A couple of days ago I received the evaluations of my EDUC7/ACRE18-workshops The Dance of the Hero. They made me happy. I was right about the particpants' eagerness and enthusiasm! Now I knew I made a meaningful contribution to their quests. And I prtetend to go on doing so!
Surely again in South Africa. Of course in the Netherlands, too. Hopefully in the USA and India as well (invitations received).
