In this 1 or 2 hours intro session, you are introduced to the background of speakGreen and the principles that can change a red standpoint into a green perspective.
The special focus of this session is on the 7Ms of Traditional Management Language
which are described in the article Brave New Words*** and a potential vocabulary for the Future of Work.
You learn about
- the purpose and background of speakGreen
- introduction to the 7Ms of Traditional Management Language:
Military, Masters, Machine, Make-Do, Money, Machismo, and Mafia
- focusing on replacing the 7Ms of Traditional Management Language with life-affirming words:
(e.g. due date instead of deadline, teams instead of units, human sources
instead of human resources, women and men instead of men and women)
- future steps of speakGreen and participants’ potential contribution.
Furthermore, we co-create more “green over red” words and expressions,
especially for the Future of Work, to become an active author of the future.
