SCIO-NL webinar (in English): Selling Horses, and Seeing Systems on a Road Less Travelled by Bill Bellows

Coming month, the 12th of June, we are happy to have Bill Bellows join us for an inspiring talk.

Bill is an old-time friend and collaborator with our member Frans Leijse; both of them are experts in the work of W.E. Deming and have recently been successful in bringing together a group of professionals in a purposeful and liberating way.

On the 12th of July(!) Bill will be in the Netherlands and we will continue the conversation live in Vianen for anybody who wants to join us there.

This is what Bill himself wrote on his talk:

From The Road Not Taken to Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, poet Robert Frost crafted timeless images of rural scenes as well as life’s everyday journeys. Through his prose, he also gave sage advice, including guidance on the secret to selling a horse; “Take care to sell your horse before he dies. The art of life is passing losses on.”  Yet, what can be said of those who will receive these losses, be they co-workers, customers, or, more broadly, fellow members of society?  And, how does this impact how systems are managed?

In a very pragmatic sense, our ability to manage systems depends on our ability to see and think about systems. To paraphrase Robert Frost in his poem, The Road Not Taken, this presentation will provide insights to seeing and managing systems on a road less travelled, in which the focus shifts from actions to interactions, with a detailed explanation of both paths.
