Experiential learning and the power of questions in motion (Ramblings and mumblings around…)


No focused post this week, too much is brewing in my mind. All possible walks of my professional life are in utmost effervescence or have just been put to a complete stop. A whirlwind of destructive-creative energy, and many ideas are seeping out of its trail. I am just walking forward with these ideas, shaping them up […]

The path to wisdom is paved with effectiveness, focus, humility and empathy


“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” ― Confucius. Wisdom features highly in the world of knowledge management. One of the biggest heresies it has produced, the erroneous DIKW pyramid (which I also questioned here and here), […]

Putting learning loops and cycles in practice

Blogging for what? For reflecting, for sharing, for learning, for synthesising, for…


When I started this blog, about a year and a half ago, I stepped into the darkness, I marched for the light, whose shape I couldn’t quite picture then. Blogging just sounded like a good practice to follow but, as my former manager Viktor Markowski (founder of Conosco) said, “to do what?” I hadn’t yet […]

Cycles, circles and ripples of learning


Last Monday, I gave a one-day workshop [1] on knowledge management, learning and cooperation to help an organisation (and wannabe network) to harness opportunities and to address existing gaps, while focusing on a long term vision that inspires them. It was a very valuable and useful experience at many levels, not least because it gave […]
