WHAT DO YOU WANT TO HAPPEN? A NEW DEVELOPMENT TECHNIQUE

Both leadership and adult education tend to an interdependent level of development, based on shared authority and control. Learning is achieved through the collaboration of different people, who guide each other, generating more knowledge. Group activities generate commitment and give meaning and sense to the fact of working together and collaboration among individuals in a social process of constructing the meanings that enable transformation and change (Beck and Cowan, 1996; Kegan, 1994; Torbert et al., 2004; Wilber, 2000) closely linked to organizational objectives. The key is finding shared meanings within a group to allow people to fulfill and give the right response to the needs and demands from the environment.
The aim of this work is to describe a new technique for developing people and organizations based on interdependent development models that searches more effective solutions to problems of a given organization.
The phases for the application of this technique are discussed through a concrete experience, developed in the Faculty of Psychology at Complutense University of Madrid. The following question was asked to different agents in the Faculty (students, teachers, administration and service staff): “What do you want to happen?” This had to be answered through a social network, forum and/or providing written ideas in panels that were displayed in the central building.
The three suggestions that showed up the most were selected and was asked: “How do you want this to happen?” The different agents provided ideas to get what they wanted to happen, referring to the behaviour they were willing to show for that.
Results obtained, potential of the technique and future work lines are presented.
