On LinkedIn, people rated strategy, change management and coaching my top 3 skills. I experience that being open-minded, asking questions, listening, learning, analyzing, being persistent and even-handedly judging evidence are of strong importance to help create value across all of these areas.
During the #initiate19 work process, Barbara Ibo said to me that I am good at asking questions. In a follow-up conversation, Barbara said to me, "I felt very much accepted by you. Your interest feels real and alive. I think your essence is resonating." What does resonating mean, I asked. Her feedback: "For me, resonating means perceiving vibrations in one another and responding to them. It means meeting the other person in a an open-minded way, a playful way, a harmonious way and a non-evaluating way - accepting that the other person is free. It also means meeting the other person in in a firm way so that something unimaginable may come out of the encounter."
Isabella Mui Kuen Lo gave me the feedback that one of my "fundamental attitudes in life is to keep learning, asking questions and being curious."

At the same time, she came to learn about her own values.
