Day 2: Workshop

DSC05858Today, I had the pleasant opportunity to participate in a workshop on “radical collaboration” …. Sounds like new age topics, however, is incredibly useful to organize ideas and think outside the parameters you normally use to categorize our world. The question I had to answer using these techniques was: Why is it important to combine passion and hard work?

The technique used was The 5 why”. First the main question and this answer is answered, it adds a new why until five responses. It is intended with this, get to the root of what is really trying to say with those answers.

At first there is the feeling that these techniques are made to executives and managers who have better things to do, but the truth is that these techniques of visualization features and troubleshooting leaves us with the simple truths that we always assume.
