After the class…
We got such a lot of thought this week that I feel tired. Today we have finished the lectures and our dear (president) has arranged a meeting on Varsity. We were a lot of people there talking about our experiences from that week and a lot of other things.
What came to a surprise for me was that a member of my team hugged me and called me friend. To be clear I feel him as friend too. The problem is that during the models we were fighting all the time about the answers. Our views were so different that our nicknames were Deming boy for me and Drucker boy for him. He was always focused on the results while I was focused on the processes. Despite that there was that fight between theory and practice we still consider each other friend…..
Through all that Paul came to my mind. Have you thought that he never answered to our thoughts with “no”. Even if he disagreed, he was telling “ok, yes but…..” There is no wrong and no right in that world. Wrong and right must be considered under subjectivity.
I think that in that case Paul displayed us what Deming said:
“Be a good listener but never compromise”
If we understand that the other has the right to have his opinion, like in our team with me and the other member, we will create a better world where arguing will not me a reason for fight but for improvement. There will be no competitiveness but only collaboration……
PS: I want to thank me team, all the other colleagues, and of course Paul for that week-journey….
Also I would like to say that we have to think a little bit the people on Indonesia that are under difficult conditions now. Our thoughts and our love is with them…….
