New Resources For The Acceptance-Tolerance-Model

Good news for everyone that has been following one of my talks about the „Acceptance-Tolerance-Model„:

I have created the first downloadable resource from the model, so you can use it with your team. It shows the full model for a team of four. But you can easily extend it with a second or even third chart, if our team or group is bigger.

Make use of the Acceptance-Tolerance-Model (ACTOMO) with the Team Board.

The downloadable ACTOMO Team Board (PDF) comes along with all levels of the model itself. In addition it contains the definitions I use in my talk, that describe how behaviour or attitude is perceived at each level, and how people feel, when faced with that very behaviour or attitude, again for each level.

I published this stuff right before my next talk at the Conference Agile Spain 2019 in Barcelona at November 22nd, so that all participants then can directly download stuff and start using the model right away.

Therefore I decided to publish the board in English to make it available to more people in the beginning. I plan to publish not only a german version soon, but also additional stuff, both in English and German then.

So stay tuned and try the ACTOMO Team Board (PDF).

TrustTemenos Leadership Academy

An experience report.

In the last months, from January to July 2018, I took part in the TrustTemenos Leadership Academy, held and developed by Olaf Lewitz, Christine Neidhardt and Scott Downs. The academy timescale is build around four weekends to meet in person every other month, and a weekly videocall of one hour. The agenda is based on the Temenos Concept going back to Siraj Sirajuddin. „Temenos“ is a greek word for the innermost part of a temple and by that stands for a safe space.

The TrustTemenos consist of four steps, which are represented by one of the in-person weekends in the academy. In the first step we begin to understand where we come from and what has brought us here, using an influence map. After that we clearify the present and it´s time to make clean slate with ourselfs. In the third step we formulate our personal vision to understand where we want to go and what we need to do. While everything until here had the goal to deeply reflect on ourselfs, the last step opens the stage to show up as a leader, by contributing actively with own prepared content to the agenda of the weekend.

I took part in that academy to become more aware of my strengths and weaknesses when taking over leadership. I wanted to understand what effect I already have on others and where I can unleash more potential. Also, in early 2018 I found myself a little bit stuck in self development as an experience Agile Coach that is somewhat established in the market since several years now, and I felt it was time for a new challenge. „TrustTemenos Leadership Academy“ weiterlesen
