And you thought YOU had fun !!!

At the end of our recent leadership seminar in the Ukraine, our participants use a special technique to work on their insights. According to different intelligence types (Gardner) we learn and remember differently when using for example movement. In this small video, participants move each of their hands differently, expressing a special leadership quality that they have found, and let the hand work out the integration between them through spontaneous movement. Astonishingly, the hands find a movement solution and the person has an insight about what the hands did, that they can use in the days to come. As you can see, most of them have their eyes closed, in order to better focus on the kinesthetic and proprioceptive process and not to be disturbed by visual information.

DDI EAST AFRICA - A BAOBAB TREE

"Truth is like a baobab tree; one person's arms cannot embrace it" (African proverb) 

We are grateful to Florence Champin from Nairobi for passing on this proverb to us. It's an image that resonates with the essence of Deep Democracy, as we understand it. Even if some arms are pulling against each other, and not in touch, they are all trying to embrace the bigger truth.

Today www.ddi-eastafrica.co.ke raised its flag - though it's a provisional flag, it is a flag, nontheless, waving in the winds. Thanks to everyone  who helped to get this done.

DDI Russia

We are excited to have the opportunity to explore the possibility to create a DDI Center for training and consulting in Moscow this fall with a pilot program. (Check on schedule on the main website for details) Next year, we are committed to starting a program in St. Petersburg, and hopefully, the two centers can work together and create an integrated training with many possibilities. Thank you Xenia Kuleshova in Moscow and Yura Pavlenko in St. Petersburg for your inspiration and enthusiasm, and our Ukrainian friends in Kyiv for their support in this project.

website renewal - behind the curtains

Behind the curtains, we have been involved in a massive workover of our website. Together with our amazing webteam in Germany, we moved the entire website into a new system that allows multilingual translation. We enjoyed our skype trainings for the new content management system, 6 am in the morning for Ellen and Max in Portland, late evening for Ahmad in Jenin, Palestine and Elena in Kyiv, Ukraine, midday for Stanford in Brazil and late afternoon for our trainer Lutz Cramer in Dortmund Germany. So watch out for translations of the various pages, first in Russian and Arabic, but soon in Spanish, French, Vietnamese and other languages.
