Las ovejas se miraron unas a otras confundidas. Los lobos no pasan sobre la cerca. Pasan debajo de ella! Es cuando los lobos pasan por debajo! Todos se rieron con muchas ganas de esto.

The Life of a Working Mother. Being a mother is the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me. Journey with me as I find the strength, inspiration and vision within myself.
Wednesday, January 14, Outlearning the Wolves This is a summary of a fable by David Hutchens which I have read many years ago and re-read recently to my elder boy.
Fables are very powerful as they can teach difficult concepts in a simple manner. One day, one sheep Otto challenged this belief. This got the flock thinking. That night the flock huddled and slept in a circle, with Otto guarding alone beside a tree. Next morning, Otto was missing. The flock started thinking. There was a barbed wire surrounding the flock.
In fact it has been raised to keep wolves out. There was no way for wolves to jump over the barbed wire. Marietto adjourned the meeting and asked the sheep to go back and think on themselves before meeting again in the afternoon. At the start of the afternoon meeting, the flock were discussing aloud. The flock followed Curly to the river side, where the flock used to get their drink.
Curly pointed his hoove at the lower end of the barbed wire. There was a clump of sheep wool. The wolves were crawling under the barbed wire! Now we are at the mercy of weather, I mean there is no way we can control the weather. We cannot control the weather. The other sheep joined in, and Jeremeh pushed the stones with his nose to build a dam.
After that day, the flock had a beautiful pond to drink their water, play and enjoy. More importantly, the sheep stopped disappearing mysteriously. But, maybe not for long - remember like the sheep, the wolves were also learning. But then, that will be another story. This fable teaches us about the five disciplines of the learning organisation by Peter Senge: 1. Systems Thinking - the problem exists in a wider context. The sheep disappearing is a function of not just the wolves but also the weather.
If we can elevate our thinking to a higher level, we can see things from a far wider and new perspective. Mental Models - we all have mental models. This is the way our brain helps us to filter the enormous information that is around us. Personal Mastery - in simple terms, it refers to people who are able to question long-held belief or assumption like Otto and Marietto in the fable. It takes courage to challenge these beliefs.
Shared Vision - not just a vision that is tossed out at us but a shared one. Team learning - each of us is capable of learning but if we could come together and put our skills together, we will excel even more.
