Coping Skills – 27th 28th Feb – After the event

02 Mar

The 27th and 28th finally came around and I must say the coping skills program was a blast.  Whilst we kept the  number of delegates to a fairly small size – 15 delegates of which 10 delegates were from 3 organizations while the balance 5 were he sole attendees from their  respective organizations.

It was fun because there was lots of learning opportunities and sharing. In fact, it felt somewhat like and “in house” program because we were able to get everyone involved at quite a detailed level.

I thought the 2nd day afternoon was very interesting cause it allowed the delegates to play consultants and to consults each other based on what they had learned.  I was impressed with the delegates ability to so quickly absorb the learnings and converts it into problem solving.

We thank all 15 delegates for making it so much fun and to SMPP for organizing the program.  Also to Reinier for his juggling and systems thinking and  Dr. Elisabeth for her interesting work on colors and paradigms.

We were so engrossed with  the program that we forgot to take loads of pictures, but the few we have can be viewed here….

    Indeed the program exceeded my expectations. I was under the impression that it would be mainly theories & case studies…yet the gurus actually managed to turn the abstracts of coping transformation into practical steps. Although this might seems to be too methodical pedagogically yet we were having a blast in participative, engaging and fun way. Even juggling balls, supposedly a no brainer for a clown but a real challenge for others, reflects the interplay of how our subconciuos mind works in managing transformation. Really grateful for the insights, indeed the lessons learnt are applicable not just for corporate transformation but could be internalized in our personal lives.

    I’ve gone thru a lot of conference/training programs yet this is far than better. Congatulations to Ashraf and team that make this a very meaningful and effective program. Fyi, I’m practising it now and yet to see the result …… will keep you posted.

    To the team ….. just do it, you’ll never regret as we’ll learn from our failures.

    Good job Ashraf & the team. Highly recommended for those wanting to learn first hand about change, transformation, transition and ‘colour’. 😉

    Now that the country is also going through the transformation, let’s just hope, for everyone’s sake, that we will get by the night a little stronger and better.

    So Ashraf, it has been more than 2 months since we met in IOI Palm Garden. I do feel that the Uhmm No should actually do a turnaround, transformation or maybe go to your course. They are bleeding….. and I wish them luck in the next GE, well, make it “in the next few months”.

    Hi Rizal,

    As you can see I have posted quite a number of articles drawing parallels from our coping skills programs and the outcomes of the elections.

    I will be posting in MindaCergas (sometime soon) why it will be so hard for BN to WIN back they seats in GE13 and so easy for PKR to loose what they have won.
