The final leg for the SEMS Leadership Program is back at the Proclamation of Independence Declaration Museum and Taman Suropati Park. The museum has just opened again to public after last year renovation.
The sensing journey started at the place where our leaders from different background, races and education sit together to draft the proclamation text with so many deliberation and thought embedded in the wording of the text. They were brought to the Taman Suropati to sculpture the future of Indonesia. The 2 teams put their dreams and hope in making the sculpture and present the result to each other.
The second stage of the leadership program is to have first hand knowledge on one of the most complex systems in the world: hospital. Therefore we took the students to Admira Hospital, a private hospital, recently established in the east side of Jakarta. The hospital was designed by a dedicated profesional team that wanted to have a new kind of hospital in Indonesia, that is based on international standards. The hospital has no class types difference and only has a single class.
We have an honor to have the founder of the hospital, dr. Achmad Harjadi M.Sc, to talk about his dreams, careers, and why he design the hospital the way Admira now. He also welcomes Industrial Engineering graduates to contribute to the hospital improvement systems, since these concepts are common in the US.
As annual event for all SEMS Lab assistants, we started a leadership programs that aims to instill leadership traits in our lab assistants. The event is parallel with national youth day in Indonesia, at October 28. Based on U-Theory approach, Mrs. Ernie Widianty, as the lead facilitators, will take the assistants through the U Journey. The session started at the SEMS lab with the introduction of the concept.
The last year alumni of the leadership program Stefan, Laisha and Dhanita, who just recently graduated, also helps to facilitate their juniors.
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.
