SOPK….. Utopian or not?
This was a main argument on my team…. Is the system of profound knowledge (SOPK) a utopia?
I am thinking of that all the time. I open philosophic books and I ask people for their opinion in order to answer that question. Today I think that I found a good argument why it is not a utopia.
An utopia is anything that cannot implemented. But i have lived in a system based on the principles of the SOPK. Our previous week was based on SOPK.
Think of it:
As individuals we were an example for the others through our hard work, we listened to the others opinions with critical attitude, we conveyed the knowledge in order to teach the others and we helped the others to break their mental models (SENGE) from the past.
As a system we had system thinking especially on the seminars. There was variation that we perceived it as normal. We build knowledge on the theory and we had purpose to everything we did. We were motivated from internal principles and not from external awards…….
The climate that Paul has created was a climate of SOPK…..
How can be a utopia if we have lived in that? So let's go outside and develop it in our lives, families, society, churches, hospitals, friends, factories, parties, foundations, charities, football matches, etc……………..
PS: Thank you Paul. Thank you my colleagues.
