The first 2 sentences of this article sum it all up:

"On average, your readers will only read 28% of the words on a page.

Can you tell your whole story in 2-3 sentences? Probably not."

This infographic demonstrates Vonnegut's belief that a story's main character has ups and downs that can be graphed to reveal the story's shape:

Is tacit knowledge the Grail of facilitators ?

Is tacit knowledge the Grail of facilitators ? | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it

Via Philippe Schoen

Philippe Schoen's curator insight, February 16, 11:50 PM

In their article "Leading at the Edge : How Leaders influence Complex Systems", ( http://www.thesoulatwork.com/pubs/emerge.html ) Birute Regine and Roger Lewin point out the importance of relationship and communication between all elements of the organization :

 

"In a nonlinear, dynamic world, everything exists only in relationship to everything else, and the interactions among agents in the system lead to complex, unpredictable outcomes." ... "Relationships are the most important thing in a complex system. If you don’t have strong relationships, none of this works."

 

The authors describe 5 levels of relationships :

1. to one’s work

2. between individuals

3. to the shared purpose and values

4. to other complex systems such as other companies in the business environment and in their economic web, and to the community in which they lived

5. to the natural environment.

 

For each of these levels, what kind of communication skill or knowledge is needed to adapt effectively in a complex, unpredictable and transforming environment ?

 

Michael Polanyi's "tacit knowledge" could be piece of the puzzle :

 

"With tacit knowledge, people are not often aware of the knowledge they possess or how it can be valuable to others. Effective transfer of tacit knowledge generally requires extensive personal contact, regular interaction and trust. This kind of knowledge can only be revealed through practice in a particular context and transmitted through social networks. To some extent it is "captured" when the knowledge holder joins a network or a community of practice."

(Wikipedia)


Tacit knowledge is kind of a bridge between expert knowledge and practice, which allows real adaption and change :


"Often we employ knowledge experts, subject matter experts and have a diversity of specialists collaborating as they are surprisingly as individuals, often unaware, often unable to articulate, communicate and describe what they know; it often requires others around them to bring it out. The important point is they know but often cannot articulate it without prompting or drawing out what they know in a ‘given’ context to make clearer meaning of it, moving it from tacit to explicit."

( http://paul4innovating.com/2011/11/11/tacit-knowledge-rich-in-its-innovation-implications )


the way to spread and share tacit knowledge seems to be bringing group together and facilitating conversations.


Facilitators familiar with the art of hosting could find here the theoretical backgrounds of their practice :

- complex systems

- tacit knowledge


This could lead to a better understanding of our practice of designing new effective processes to facilitate transformation, cooperation, innovation.

Carole Maurage's curator insight, February 27, 12:25 AM

La connaissance tacite est la connaissance des collaborateurs qui n'est pas transmise à d'autres membres de l'organisation souvent par manque "d'intimité" relationnelle entre les personnes. Cette connaissance représente une grande richesse dans les organisations. Sa transmission ne peut souvent pas se faire seule et un facilitateur peut alors devenir un levier pour permettre le passage du tacite à l'explicite.

How to Be a Better Coach, According to Neuroscience

How to Be a Better Coach, According to Neuroscience | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it

Sure, running a business is about maximizing the bottom line, but few entrepreneurs care only about the dollars and cents. For most, going into work every day is also about making the world a slightly better place and helping your team get better at what they do.

 

In other words, most business owners aspire to be not just managers but coaches.

 

How do you learn to be a great coach?


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Dave Wood's insight:

The research shows that focusing on the desired future lights up the visual cortex ( amongst others).  Visual coaching is a great vehicle to build on this.

A new study finds that great coaches don't focus on finding and fixing their team's weaknesses. They do this instead.

Rather than focussing on what isn't working take a more positive approach and focus on where people want to get to.  The results are more rewarding all round.
