2010 is just around the corner, arriving very quickly! But first a quick calendar review: We were in Romania from September 9 to October 4. We came back for a team development and coaching session with an I.T. client October 15 to 18. Then we will return from November 4 to 28, and probably again from December 20 to January 2 to experience my first Christmas in Romania. At this rate, I will soon become Romanian. Is this what next my year holds in reserve?
On the worst days, we are experiencing first-hand the results of individualistic and protective survival strategies, of lack of community support and collective infrastructure, and of seemingly friendly neighbors who would sometimes just love to see our goat die. Luckily on better days, we are meeting people who truly want to remain optimist about Romania's evolution, who very personally commit to developing themselves and who are actively changing what can be changed in their immediate environment and realms of responsibility. For those who are actively supporting our work, we are very thankful.
November 10 Workshop: Competition, Personal Ethics and Sustainable Management
Individual, Team and Organization Diagnosis Training
Networking, on and off the net
We have recently been developing relationships through LINKEDIN. For information, there is a "Metasysteme Alumni" group which offers a platform for exchange between people who have had Metasysteme training or coaching experience, whether through supervision, workshops, or through direct coaching as managers and team members. We are also contributing to a number of other coaching and business groups. Incidently, we have noticed that if numerous individuals regularly post comments, questions and articles in these groups, very few react to each other's inputs. LINKEDIN is in fact a lot of "IN" but very little is "LINKED". So if you are present on this network, do not hesitate to personally react to some of our comments, articles or questions, and to those of others. Connecting and supporting each other is what networking and creating community is all about.
Recent, am investit energie in dezvoltarea relatiilor prin LINKEDIN. Ca si informatie, exista un grup "Metasysteme Alumni" care ofera o platforma de relationare intre cei care au experimentat training sau coaching Metasysteme, fie ca a fost supervizare, workshopuri sau direct coaching ca si manageri sau membri ai unei echipe. Participam totodata la un numar de alte grupuri de afaceri sau coaching. In mod intamplator am sesizat ca sunt multi care posteaza cu regularitate comentarii, intrebari sau articole in aceste grupuri si foarte putini cei care reactioneaza la ce pun ceilalti. LINKEDIN este, de fapt, mult "IN" dar foarte putin "LINKED (LEGAT/CONECTAT)". Prin urmare, daca sunteti prezenti in aceasta retea, nu ezitati sa reactionati personal la unele din comentariile noastre, articole sau intrebari ca si la cele ale altora. Sa fim in legatura si sa ne sprijinim unii pe altii este tot ceea ce inseamna networking si crearea unei comunitati.
That's all for now. We thank you for your interest in our work and your presence to our development in Romania, and we wish you an excellent year end. Until our next newsletter, Do not hesitate to tell others in your network about us and about what we do. Very sincerely,
