IMO China Greetings

from Mr. Alexander

Member of IMO China; IMO International Board; IMO Germany

Dear reader,

It is a great pleasure to introduce to you the first newsletter of IMO China, which started in May 2018 with eight people. Actually it all started with a question from my Chinese friend Darrow. He asked me whether we could start an IMO China Masterclass for Leadership and Organization development. That was in October 2017. And I enthusiastically agreed. With his enthusiasm and great ideas and inspiration he brought together forty people and we started our IMO China Masterclass in January with Module One.

The class has six modules and ends in March 2019 with the presentation of each participant about her and his own leadership question and process.

All this became possible because I was invited to Beijing already in 2016 to give courses about Leadership and OD and could build up a network.

It also became possible through my close cooperation with Weiping, my friend and translator. Through her big network of people and her great social awareness and skills many people joined.

A big support also came from the local school. I was asked to working there at times with more than 200 people on the vision and mission of the school, and the organizing structure.

And through my client Wadofoo, a young company currently building an indoor senses park for children, I was allowed to give several public workshops, which greatly supported building up the network.

And then more people joined in and are now actively supporting the further development of IMO China, and are preparing the next IMO China Masterclass.

I am very grateful to all the friends and people who helped to build this up.

What is IMO? This question is often asked.

The answer is more like a process. Not a fixed answer. IMO is the abbreviation of Institute for Man and Organization development. It is about learning how to develop yourself and how to develop organizations. It is a leadership process. Individually and in community with others. IMO focusses on both, the individual and the community.

We ask questions like: What is your current professional challenge?This is a concrete case study, directly about the persons in the room and their professional challenges. We create a process that people are able to dialog about their own questions and find their own solutions. We focus on the client. We support creating agile and flexible organizations.

Find out more in this first newsletter.

IMO中国月刊创刊贺词

来自亚历山大•施韦德勒先生

IMO中国、IMO国际董事会,IMO德国成员

亲爱的读者:

非常荣幸向您介绍IMO中国的第一份月刊,2018年5月由8位成员组成了IMO中国。事实上,这一切始于我的中国朋友Darrow的一个问题。他问我是否我们能够开一个关于领导力和组织发展的IMO中国大师班。那还是2017年10月,我满怀热情地答应了。带着这份激情,非常班的想法和对人的鼓舞,他感召了40个人,在2018年1月我们开始了IMO中国大师班的第一个模块。

这个课程有六个模块,将在2019年3月结束,届时每个参与者将呈现他们自己的领导力问题和发展过程。

这一切成为可能是因为早在2016年我受邀到北京讲授领导力和组织发展的课程,可能并由此建立了联络。

促成其成为可能的还有微平,我们密切合作,她是我的朋友兼翻译。通过她的广泛的人脉和杰出的社会意识和技能,许多人加入进来。

还有来自于当地学校的有力支持。他们几次邀请我和超过200个人一起共创学校的愿景和使命以及她的组织结构。

并且通过我的客户-娃多福,一个初创机构,正在建造一个为孩子服务的十二感官乐园。我受邀做了几次公开工作坊,极大支持了社群网络的建设。

随后更多的人加入进来,现在正在积极的酝酿和推动IMO中国的进一步发展,第二个IMO中国大师班的准备工作正在进行中。

我对所有支持和帮助过的朋友们致以诚挚的谢意!

IMO是什么,这个问题经常被提到。

这个回答更像是一个过程,而不是一个固化的答案。IMO是人与组织发展研究院的简称。它是学习个体和组织如何发展的。它是个体及在社群中与他人共处的领导力的过程。IMO聚焦于个体以及社群。我们会问诸如此类的问题:你现在面临的专业方面的挑战是什么?这是一个实实在在的案例研究,直接关于在场的人以及他们的职业挑战。我们创造一个过程,人们能够基于他们自己的问题展开对话,并且能够自己找到解决方案,我们聚焦在客户上,我们支持创造敏捷和灵活的组织。

在这本创刊号上你会有更多的发现。
