    One of the first values of leadership which so very well is demonstrated here is “Transparency”. I look forward to participating in this learning and collaborative journey together. What really excites me is the many possibilities this is opening up amongst the participants spread geographically by distance, yet coming together by choice to explore and grow. Applause to all for having the courage to take this decision to participate. Thank you for the platform.

    Time of changes is approaching us. Since two decades there has been spoken and written about Leadership. But what kind of Leadership? That Leadership which is able to conduct the others just because it is the challange to realize ourselves? Or the Leadership that support others in their dreams, purposes and challenges? Awarenes and respect for the others -including Nature- are two values and action schemes that I think we need here, to co-create the world we are changing and living in.

    Oh great. I didn’t see this during the first exercise. This is a great start:
    (The following taken from above)
    ________________
    We use words and pictures that are based on the principles:
    - treating others the way you want to be treated – online and offline
    - willingness and openness to learn from each other
    - listening to each other

    - respect of other person’s views, opinions and values
    - nobody is judged because of her/his religious believe, origin (country/ socially), culture, dialect, sexual orientation…

    _______________
    So instead of setting these Codes of Conduct in stone and add more later like proposed, would it be possible to consider these principles as examples only? That way, it would allow the group to co-create a set of codes that they have made and voted on themselves. This is a powerful approach toward enabling ownership and responsibility. It wouldn’t be that much more work. Using self-organizing principles, we could set specific deadlines for everyone’s input and voting.

    I like to start my comment on this favorable quote of mine “tell the UNsuccessful stories of the successful man so that the unseccessful man can have successful stories told of him” -inspiration from Abraham Lincoln.
    Dear friends How beautifull it will be for us all who have shown interest in this million Dollars worth course-I presume, to at the end dumb or clean all our leadership filts and carry home a bag full of successful leadership skills and Qualities.
    Let us endeavor to tell even our unsuccessful stories and how we over came them.

    Lets be our brothers/sisters keeper in this course.

    Dear All,
    I was eagerly awaiting this MOOC, as my past experience with MOOCs (especially on Design Thinking by NovoEd) were terrific.
    Now it seems that not only technical reasons make it a leadership challenge by itself.

    “willingness and openness to learn from each other” taken from the code of conduct applies to not only the participants, but to all people involved in the process making this MOOC a widely appreciated success.

    Sorry to say, but when people can’t be found to connect on the platform a MOOC doesn’t really make sense in the first place.

      Dear Mr. Lippold,
      thanks for your comment. We are happy that you are so open and kind to share your thoughts on the MOOC with us, especially as you are not satisfied at the moment. To get a better sense, what you are unhappy about, I would like to ask you, where exactly you see the difficulties in connecting with other peers!?

      We know that technical issues are sometimes tricky, but we give our best to improve with every hint we get. In our MOOC you get the opportunity to meet peers in the group function, in the weekly forum discussions and of course you can also connect with others directly . May I ask you, if these features don’t work out for you and for which reason!? And if you were expecting any further features, that you didn’t find so far, please share it wit us, as we are of course also “open and willing to learn from each other”!

      warm regards your MOOC Team
