Window 3: Exchange platform on bystander behaviour

In Window 3, on Bystander Behaviour (Part of the Solution!), the following questions are asked in two assignments:

Can you describe a work situation in which you were initially a bystander, but landed on centre stage? Or perhaps something like that is happening at work right now? What happened (is happening) where, when, or how are (were) you sidelined from the main play arena? What was the main reason for your going offside and/or leaving the playfield?

Examine your own organisation, the people who are struggling with their role and with their need to exercise their influence If you recognise occasional bystander behaviour, do ask yourself: What can you, from your role, do (= behaviour) in order to induce others to (re-)enter the arena?

This forum offers you a platform to share your experiences, your questions and insights with other readers of Einstein and the Art of Sailing.
