The countries were: Australia, Canada, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Martinique, Netherlands, Nigeria, Romania, Switzerland,Trinidad and Tobago,Tunisia, Turkey,UK and USA. <br><br> We had some in-depth conversation for 2 hours triggered by two short talks from Charles Fowler and Alan Williams and the question "What could be done to bring values to life?" <br><br> Sorry Asia-Pacific, this was out of your time-zone but I will make up for it! <br><br> What really amazes me about these virtual Caf&eacute;s is just how well they work. This one worked a treat. First, I wasn't aware of anyone who had connection problems - Zoom worked flawlessly. But it is not just the technology - the small group break-out conversations work well too. This is what one of the participants said in the final whole group conversation. <blockquote id="nomargins"> This is only my second knowledge cafe and I'm still really struck by the quality of the conversation that I can have with people that I've never met before in some other part of the world through an online medium. <br><br> And I just wanted to say that and I found it really meaningful. It's like I don't think it would have been more meaningful if they would have been right here in the office. <br><br> I'm real surprised by just how much I enjoyed it and how impactful it is. </blockquote> <br> I never thought, before Zoom, that we could get so close to the quality of face-to-face conversations through an on-line medium. <br><br> <div style="text-align:center;"> <IMG SRC="http://conversational-leadership.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/World-Values-Day.jpg"> </div> CC0AD22E419AA6C2802581BB005B9758 Thu, 26 Oct 2017 09:57:20 +0100 David Gurteen Blog Post: Disregard Others! http://www.gurteen.com/gurteen/gurteen.nsf/id/disregard-others?open By David Gurteen<br><br>My good friend David Pottinger and I both started our career's as physicists but I am sure he was a far better physicist than I ever was. I could never really handle the maths. <br><br> So it was fascinating to see this article he recently posted on his blog titled <a href="https://stepsandleaps.wordpress.com/2017/10/17/feynmans-breakthrough-disregard-others/" target="_blank">Feynman&#039;s Breakthrough</a> about <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Feynman" target="_blank">Richard Feynman</a> - the well known American theoretical physicist. <br><br> It is a lovely little story, well written and with an important message if we are struggling to be creative - "Disregard Others!"
