A unique insight to the Development Days with LOTS®

by Sara Vogt 04 Apr, 2017

Exactly how educational and inspiring the Development Days with LOTS® are can be hard to grasp if you haven’t had the chance to participate yet. For those of you that are keen to learn with and from others that have been certified as Lotscoach® and develop personally and professionally, we asked some of the participants from our days in March in Uppsala, Sweden, a few questions:

Johan Hassel, 37, Head of business development at Länsförsäkringar Östgöta, is a Lotscoach® since 2017.

How do you work as a Lotscoach®?
At Länsförsäkringar Östgöta we apply LOTS® as a business planning model.

What did you like the most about the Development Days?
The major advantage with LOTS® is that is incredibly easy to reflect and decide upon various issues, large or small. This was made especially clear when two participants, certified for less than a month showed fantastic performances as Lotscoach® during the development days, this really impressed me!

How did these days make you feel more confident in your role as Lotscoach®?
I have developed my ability to use the methodology for various types of issues and have also had some good insights on how we can improve our business planning process at Länsförsäkringar Östgöta.

Why would you recommend somebody else to participate in the development days with LOTS®?
These are days filled with love where all participants and not the least Hans Akerblom create an atmosphere where the chances are very good that you will develop as a leader in general and as a Lotscoach® specifically!

 

Linda Tillman, 42, works as a consultant for leader support and operations management (interim manager, controller) for Tillman Management AB and is a Lotscoach® since 2017.

How do you work as a Lotscoach®?
I apply the tool/approach of LOTS® for current issues and projects with my existing customers. The idea is also that I would like to help companies as a facilitator/Lotscoach®.

What did you like the most about the Development Days?
I attended one of the days and was lucky enough to be both issue owner and Lotscoach® during that day. To practice being a Lotscoach® was very rewarding and I feel that I am learning more every time. Most inspiring was meeting the other participants to exchange experiences!

How did these days make you feel more confident in your role as Lotscoach®?
To know that there is a network you can contact and the practice with real cases on a keen level.

Why would you recommend somebody else to participate in the development days with LOTS®?
LOTS® is useful in many aspects; larger and smaller issues – in a private context or for business purposes. If you already are a Lotscoach® this is an excellent opportunity to learn from and be inspired by others that also work as Lotscoach® and to refresh your memory and get more practice.

 

Stephan Stahl, 52, working as a potential developer and Lotscoach® for Quest-Team Nordic AB in Uppsala, Sweden and is a Lotscoach® since 2016.

How do you work as a Lotscoach®?
As a self-employed person I work with national and international companies from various fields of business. It can be group processes or working with individuals. Personally I use LOTS® for everything I do, from planning to preparing for a customer meeting and structuring a quotation.

What did you like the most about the Development Days?
To be able to see the same thing from totally different perspectives. The insight of how all of us as Lotscoach®, with and identical language and philosophy as a base, have our individual ways of working with LOTS® and how LOTS® in that sense offers such additional value for so many.

How did these days make you feel more confident in your role as Lotscoach®?
To be able to learn about experiences and living examples of various people that work as Lotscoach® and to be able to put different approaches into practice and try them out as a group.

Why would you recommend somebody else to participate in the development days with LOTS®?
You can define your competence as Lotscoach®, share your experiences and learn from experiences that other people that work as Lotscoach® have gathered and above all, have fun together.

Daniel Linde, 43, works with IT – business development at Conevo in Stockholm, Sweden and is a Lotscoach® since 2017.

How do you work as a Lotscoach®?
In-house at Conevo.

What did you like the most about the Development Days?
Very inspiring meetings with others that work as Lotscoach®.

How did these days make you feel more confident in your role as Lotscoach®?
By experiencing and learning how others work with LOTS®.

Why would you recommend somebody else to participate in the development days with LOTS®?
The common ground, the exchanging of experiences, learning more.

 

Leif Bremark, 53, entrepreneur for Antre AB and is a Lotscoach® since 2016.

How do you work as a Lotscoach®?
I have used the approach for a long time, ever since I met Hans Akerblom while working on a project more than 10 years ago. Only now that I am certified do I now work in a structured way

What did you like the most about the Development Days?
Watching Stephan (Stahl) facilitating the issue of the Swedish Church. The facilities also added to the experience (Norrlands Nation, Uppsala).

How did these days make you feel more confident in your role as Lotscoach®?
More experience to see how others work as Lotscoach®. This works especially well for me since I am more of a pragmatic type of person.

Why would you recommend somebody else to participate in the development days with LOTS®?
It is inspiring and unfolding.
