“An unrecognised difference (since it goes unnoticed) will not receive the amplification needed and will remain a difference that does not make a difference. A simple difference, often just some doubt, can be enough to begin changing a lifelong pattern or way of thinking.” (de Shazer, 1986).
A key skill for a host leader is noticing within ourselves, noticing others, and noticing of relationships … and the act of noticing itself can be enough to change several maps.
“The map is not the territory, and the name is not the thing named.” (Gregory Bateson, based on Alfred Korzybski)
In my view, the most important asset of being a host leader is noticing bits and pieces of the great stuff that people do and being genuinely curious about it. In this session, you will learn to train your ‘noticing muscle’ to become even more skilful and resourceful in it. We’ll have dialogues, share stories, and explore a world of possibilities … just by noticing.
Wim first presented this session at SOLWorld Vienna. The SFiO InterAction editors received so many positive reviews about this session we asked Wim to repeat it online.
