As a part of activity for SEMS Lab assistant (LA), Sensing Journey is the necessary one. Sensing Journey was held to increase interpersonal skill and Emotional Intelligence for SEMS Lab assistant to be a good communicator and feel sensitive with their surroundings.
Sensing Journey 2011 was held on Tuesday, August 16th 2011 after new students visiting program. This time, SEMS Lab assistant had a journey to ‘Museum Perumusan Naskah Proklamasi’ and watched ‘Napak Tilas Proklamasi.’ The topic is about how to reach spirit of our proclamator and independence fighter to trigger a creation for industrial engineer for fulfilling Indonesia’s Independence.
As part of our mission to expand the horizon of thinking for our lab assistants, we are introducing the concepts of Otto Scharmer’s Theory U to reignite the understanding of our nation’s founders. The stage 2 consists of visits to the Museum Penyusunan Naskah Proklamasi (Independence Proclamation Script Museum) to reflects the conditions and situations during our crucial moments of independence proclamation, and based on these reflections, the create new dreams for the future through sculpturing. The sculpturing session is conducted in the nearby Taman Suropati (Suropati Public Park), which draws attention from the surrounding people. The sculpture they produce shows the dreams of future Indonesia.
Theory U: Leading from the future as it emerges.
In his book, Theory U, Otto Scharmer invites us to see the world in new ways—and to learn from the future as it emerges. It all hinges on our attention. “If I attend this way, it emerges that way.” But what often keeps us from “attending” is what Scharmer calls our blind spot”¦the inner place from which each of us operates. Unless we become aware of that blind spot—both as individuals and as communities and larger systems—we won’t be able to successfully address the pressing issues and challenges of our time. (Excerpts from the presencing institute)
We want to expand the knowledge of our lab assistants, therefore we are conducting a small discussion regarding theory U, with Mrs. Ernie Widianty, in our lab. The stage 1 discussion, mainly act as an Icebreaking Session, to get to know each other, before dwelling into the details of Theory U. The 2nd stage would be a field trip to the museum of declaration of indonesia’s independence, as a sensing journey. The museum was chosen due to Independence Day Spirit of August 17 in Indonesia.
