We work with the method of the generative dialogue. This special empathetic technique helps to connect people on a very deep level of understanding.
The stronger we act in realtionship, the stronger we can build on each other and create change. This is especially helpful between teachers, thinking of their cooperation amongst each other, but can also be facilitated amonst students and teachers.

In a safe space we reflect with empathy and sense. The concept contains very assertive listening as well as group work using pictures and change of perspective.

The “generative dialogue” ist based on Theory U founded by Otto Scharmer. The process shows “how individuals, teams, organizations and large systems can build the essential leadership capacities needed to address the root causes of today’s social, environmental, and spiritual challenges. In essence, we show how to update the operating code in our societal systems through a shift in consciousness from ego-system to eco-system awareness.”
