What will change for Me during this course?
In this course, we understand being in dialogue as a generative exchange with the outer and inner sphere. Beyond deep listening and authentic curiosity, we see dialogue as a mindset of genuine openness to who- or whatever we are in dialogue with.
Selected methods such as interviewing, peer-to-peer coaching, journaling, group dialogues, case studies and other practices will help build our capacities for generative dialogue - a playful and effective toolkit for exploring and stewarding the emergence of something new.
What should I bring to this course?
Throughout the course, we will explore capacities that we deem necessary for working on inner and outer learning.
For your journey, we invite you to select a use case allowing all of your learning to have a real-life backdrop. Our invitation is for you to follow your guts and sense into where you feel a need for transformation.
To give you some examples of past projects:
Let us also emphasize that your use case will develop with you throughout the journey. So, whatever you pick in the beginning is invited to change itself. Meaning, if you change your mind or need to adjust the initial use case at some point, that's even a great sign that you are actually learning.
Now, this is an invitation to get as practical as possible. You are equally invited to dive through our process without picking one use case. When there are exercises requiring that we have a real-life example in our minds, you can also do that more ad hoc rather than building on your use case. This way, you can make the course just as meaningful for yourself.
Already as a student you will be invited to join the Alumni Community of this course. With completion you will receive lifelong access to the network. This includes:
Being able to contact other amazing people
Being invited to speak at future Puzzle Innovation events
Being able to participate in the fourth week of future courses
and continue lifelong learning (see curriculum of week 4 here)
After each session, training materials will be distributed
in order to continue the learning throughout the week.
Arriving at Basecamp
Week 1 is all about Connecting and Building Capacities.
Here we establish the collective energy and intelligence that empowers all participants throughout the course.
Together we learn and practice how to use the foundations of Dialogue (listening, respecting, suspending and voicing) to build an effective culture around our core purpose.
In Week 2 we connect with the personal Being and Doing.
Here, we explore how our purpose, values and beliefs shape the images we have of our 'ideal' self.
Together we find our path forward with an effective strategy and the ability to create the habits that manifest it.
Finding the Path
Sensing into the Unknown
In Week 3, we dive into Empathy and Systems Thinking.
By deeply listening and asking questions, we sense into systems, their stakeholders' needs and resources.
Together, we will find paths through the complexity of our own change intentions and get more comfortable in the unknown.
Week 4 is the time for Connecting Dots and Sharing Insights.
This session is an opportunity for a guided generative dialogue where all course mates get to support and ensure each other's life-long journey of positive change.
It works as an open forum where alumni of the course are also invited to reconnect and explore with the students their latest learning and challenging experiences.
