This post is a bit dated.Â Â But I still want to post it here since it is rather significant to me.Â Â Â The photos were taken in Gazipur, Bangladesh â€“ the outskirt of Dhaka.Â Â I conducted a team development workshop there for 2 days.Â Â Â The event is significant to me in a number of ways:
- The workshop went very well.Â Â The sponsor and the participants were apparently satisfied and more importantly their relationship seemed to start changing.Â Â In the final 1-word check-out, one participant said â€˜changeâ€™.Â Â He further elaborated that he now saw people differently.Â In addition, we arrived with very concrete Requests and Offers between leader and the team, with specific person and date for follow-up.
- It was the last workshop with my previous employer.Â Â Â It nicely marked the end.Â Â Â I am particularly happy that I end it with a piece of â€˜realâ€™ work.Â Â As I mentioned before here, I believe more and more that learning happens much more effectively when we get the learners do real stuff.
- Most importantly, I felt very grateful during the event.Â Â Â I was absorbed with what I did there.Â Â I felt like time just passed by so quickly.Â I was in the flow.Â Â People say everyone is borne for reasons.Â Â If that is the case, I really feel like I am borne to facilitate group work.Â Â Â Not that I am very good at it.Â Â Just that I like to do it so much.
I guess I am lucky.
