Blog Post: The art of ditting

 

Ditting is the the art of sharing anecdotes while trying to trump the story of the previous person. 

Too often conversations fall prone to it and we end up not listening to the other person's story but recalling and rehearsing our own in our head so we can trump their story. We all do it at one time or another when really we should just take the time to listen to and fully appreciate the other person's story.

Karen du Toit's insight:

Two humorous sketches shared about ditting!

Capturing actionable insights from Knowledge Cafes - David Gurteen

Capturing actionable insights from Knowledge Cafes - David Gurteen | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

 "...a way to capture "actionable insights" and feedback from my Knowledge Cafes that did not get in the way the conversation, was easy, simple; that everyone could do and that allowed me to collate and distribute the items to the participants. 

A few weeks ago, after some inspiration from Paul Corney and Mark Field, I decided it was time to try an experiment and I have developed a system to capture items by SMS and post them to a page on my website that I am calling an "SMS Wall". 

Why do it like this rather than use Twitter or some other social tool? Quite simply, I wanted everyone to have the ability to post to the wall. 

Not everyone, has a smartphone, not everyone uses Twitter and not everyone has an internet connection but almost everyone has a basic phone with SMS and knows how to use it. 

People can also post messages before the Knowledge Cafe, during the KCafe, at the end of the KCafe and even on the train on the way home. 

Karen du Toit's insight:

I would love to hear the feedback on this?

I still like the idea of using Twitter and curating it afterwards via the hashtag/s!

Virtual Knowledge Cafes - does anyone have any tips? - LinkedIn Group discussion

Virtual Knowledge Cafes - does anyone have any tips? - LinkedIn Group discussion | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
Working internationally means we can't get people together in the same room for the conversations which are the power of the knowledge cafe. Does anyone have any experience of running a knowledge cafe virtually and how did you make it work?

David Gurteen gives an insightful reply with various links to consider when wanting to do a Virtual Knowledge Café.

If you think interactive workshops are important learning tools, and if you work for or with a geographically distributed group of people, you'll be interested in this conversation.

David Gurteen planning a blook (no that's not a typo) on Conversational Leadership and his Knowledge Cafe

David Gurteen planning a blook (no that's not a typo) on Conversational Leadership and his Knowledge Cafe | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
By David Gurteen
At long last I am writing a book.
Well not quite. It is a blook - a cross between a blog, a website and an on-line book.
Why like this?
Well I realised I could never sit down and write a book in one go.
Karen du Toit's insight:

The Knowledge Management and Knowledge Café guru is planning to put down his thoughts! Looking forward to it!

Telepresence: "Beaming in" to a Knowledge Cafe - David Gurteen (Gurteen Knowledge)

Telepresence: "Beaming in" to a Knowledge Cafe - David Gurteen (Gurteen Knowledge) | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"There is an interesting thread in the Gurteen Knowledge Forum on the subject of how to run a Virtual Knowledge Cafe that has been running for while. 

And then recently, I was talking to Kitty Wooley on Skype about this and we decided it would be interesting for her to join one of my London Knowledge Cafes virtually as an experiment. So this would be one virtual person in a sea of real people. My first thought was to have the "virtual Kitty" sit at a table as a laptop or better still as an IPad and to connect via Skype. It seemed to me that this could even work more generally if there was just one virtual person per table. 

But as I reflected on it - I realised that there might be some better technology available than a laptop or an iPad. My first thought was a remote controlled WiFi webcam such as this one BESTEX remote controlled webcam 

But it was obviously not ideal and so I Googled around a little and found Beam+ "

KM UK 2013: Knowledge Cafe: Should we be using rewards and recognition to motivate knowledge sharing? (Gurteen Knowledge)

KM UK 2013: Knowledge Cafe: Should we be using rewards and recognition to motivate knowledge sharing? (Gurteen Knowledge) | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

Blog Post by David Gurteen: KM UK 2013: Knowledge Cafe:

A Knowledge Cafe with a difference! 


"...the question "Should we be using rewards and recognition to motivate knowledge sharing?" 

The video then includes a clip of the small group conversations in the Cafe itself, followed by some comments by Paul Corney (the conference chair) and interviews with Mark Field and Florence Kiff, two of the conference participants. 

It gives a good feel for the Cafe concept and the event on the day but note that the tables were far too large for a good conversation as many of them had 6, 7 or 8 people, some even more. The Cafe works best with people sitting in groups of 3, 4 or 5 in touching distance of each other."

Karen du Toit's insight:

Human being want to contribute by doing something that matters ... rewards can de-motivate that behavior.

Solving Knowledge Management with Speed Dating: Interview with Clay Hebert | Trusted Advisor

Solving Knowledge Management with Speed Dating: Interview with Clay Hebert | Trusted Advisor | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

Most corporate discussions about knowledge management (KM) are about databases, software, and IT.

One mid-sized law firm I know took a different approach – getting partners to interact over lunch. It was very effective.

It turns out the 1-to-1 nature of speed dating is perfect for mega-companies that want to improve KM.

That’s the kind of insight Clay Hebert has come up with. I met with him recently in his coffee-shop office so far on the West Side of Manhattan it might as well be in the Hudson. Here are excerpts."
