Ian Gee, former Global OD Director at Nokia Corporation along with his talented colleague Matthew Hanwell have seriously explore the topic in his recently released book "The WorkPlace Community: A Guide to Releasing Human Potential and Engaging Employees."

I am thrilled to see the work of…Continue

Starting a business is not like getting up from bed on a nice Sunday morning to make pancakes just because you are hungry; doing so takes one years of hard work and tons of sacrifices to build courage and save money to turn his dreams into reality. However, wealth and passion are not enough for an entrepreneur to cement his spot in the corporate world. For him to continue thriving in such an unpredictable domain, he should be aware of the factors that make one a reputable…Continue

In 2011, I introduced The World Café into ITU, the UN ICT agency, where I was then employed. The World Café was developed by Juanita Brown and David Isaacs and now comprises a global community of practitioners. It is a wonderful collaborative meeting methodology, and this highly participative tool became immediately very popular in ITU, an organization that supports dialogue and consensus.
I am proud and honoured to conduct my 12th high-level international ITU/UN world café type event…Continue

A recent report on local currency and local economy from Sweden, complied by Transition member Steve Hinton, sheds light on some of the pitfalls and opportunities for local community action. The report comes in the wake of a resilience project to create a “back-up” currency, envisioned as a preparedness tool should Sweden’s ubiquitous digital money system fail due to loss of electrical power over a longer period. Most money today in Sweden is digital, only a few percent is notes and coins.…Continue

I am aware that sometimes trying to summarize emotions, thoughts, feelings and even the discussions in words is a quite challenging and not productive endeavor. So, summarizing in a few words the Zoomlion World Cafè event of July 12th is definitely a challenge for me. Maybe it will be easier for those who participated in the event to catch in the following words something that they recognize. For those who were not there, I hope that, without a full understanding, their curiosity…Continue

envisioned. The vision must be built up by many people before
it is complete and compelling. (Meadows 2004, p273)
(Although I don't think that such a vision ever can be…
