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.
