Foredrag med Lene Tanggard: Det kreative nej

– om at bruge afvisninger som drivkraft

Vi har alle prøvet at blive afvist. Af mennesker, vi holder af og respekterer: forældre, kærester, venner og på arbejdspladsen.

Vi oplever også selv at måtte afvise andre. Det kan være som leder eller kollega på arbejdspladsen. Men vi taler sjældent om afvisninger, for det er, ligesom at skulle dele sine fejl, svært.

Spørgsmålet er, om vi kan omfavne de fejl og afvisninger, vi støder på i livet igennem, så de giver os positiv energi og værdifulde medspillere i vores kreativitet. Den første idé er jo ikke altid den bedste, men den kan give energi og lyst til den næste og den næste. Alle kreative processer involverer modstand. Sådan er det; “så må man bare på hesten igen!”

I sit nye foredrag giver professor i kreativitet nye svar på, hvor vi kan bruge afvisningen som en kreativ drivkraft, og inspirerende eksempler og cases på, hvordan et nej kan katapultere os videre til noget, der får positiv betydning for vores eget liv og andre.

Lecture with Lene Tanggard: Oblivion of Learning

How do we best forget in order to learn?

“My simple suggestion is that we forget the concept of learning in order to concentrate on that which makes sense to learn in the given situation” Lene Tanggard

Lene Tanggard’s talk deals with how we learn more when we forget that we are in the process of learning. Active oblivion can create mental space for new learning processes. It all may seem quite simple. It is simple. Oblivion of learning is a concept which remind us that we learn by forgetting.  This happens in effect when the individual at the workplace briefly forgets in the encounter with a new professional field, when they achieve recognition and gain new insights, which increase their desire to learn more. In this way a higher degree of professionalism can be achieved for the company as well as the individual while it makes room for happiness, wonder and enthusiasm.

But why do we need a new concept of learning? Because we have a tendency to do what we have always done in our current obsession with education and learning. We have constructed our schools and education system to be characterised by rigid performance-based management, simple target performance and spreadsheets. This is why we need oblivion of learning, which is what Lene Tanggard advocates for in her instructive, inspiring and exciting talk where she once and for all settles with old ways of thinking about learning.
