Unleash the collective intelligence of your teams
The working style of a self-organizing FlowTeam meeting differs significantly from the conventional. Self-organized working and learning does not mean sitting quietly and listening, but acting and participating freely. Everybody is in constant flow - everything is always moving and changing.
Prototyping > (see F 3), the rapid development of initial solutions, can best be compared to playing. It is a trial and error process that facilitates experimenting and risk-taking without fear and exploring creative learning possibilities in a safe space. Learning and working become a rich adventure of new discoveries.
Participants witness their own transformation as the possibilities they create become tangible realities. They learn and grow by "doing". Consequently, their faith in their own mastery increases and they develop greater confidence in their ability to handle new challenges and uncertainties.
Conventional meetings, workshops, or training sessions are usually organized according to clearly structured agendas or course outlines. Self-organized events, however, take a different approach. The work process is driven instead by commonly desired objectives and the collective intelligence. The energy of the participants flows freely and each one finds the tasks, projects and issues to which she/he can give their best and make the greatest contribution. The commonly formulated work process and objectives prevents the process from getting out of hand. It is, however, important that a FlowTeam animator co-ordinates the processes at the beginning of the work session.
