Thursday Morning Picture Show

At this meeting, we indulged in some collective film viewing interspersed with plenty of enlightening discussion around questions like these:

  • Does this matter? Why?
  • What questions does it raise?
  • Do you agree? Do you care?
  • So what?

Here are the videos we watched. They were sourced from YouTube and TED.

Teaser

We started with this very short clip.

After this opener, we shared the following questions it had previously evoked for us. As one participant put it, this was the point they realised they were going to be required to think.

  • At what point do people recognise that this time what’s happening is different?
  • Is there an equivalent moment in change efforts?
  • In workplaces full of initiatives and programmes, can we do anything to reach that point sooner?
  • How often is what’s happening actually as different as this situation was?
  • And if we didn’t recognise it, would we experience any loss as a result anyway, like the kids here did?

Now you can enjoy the rest of the clips. If any of them prompt questions or reflections you’d like to share, feel free to use the comments at the foot of the page. We’d love to hear.

This last video wasn’t actually shown on the day. We chose to talk a little more about what we’d watched and its implications instead.
