Jean-luc Doumont: Traditions, templates, and group leaders

Dec

Date: 
Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 19:45

Wednesday 4 December 2013
19:45 - 22:00
Aud. Jean Monnet (Parkstraat 51)

Although convinced of our advice for effective communication, many people feel they will not be allowed to use it in practice. Beside “nobody else does it in this way”, the classic assertions to justify resistance to change include “it is not compatible with our template” and “my group leader won’t let me do so”. While such utterances are sometimes no more than excuses for laziness or low self-confidence, the barriers are often real.
