Program User Conference 2017


Time: Registration starts 12:00. The program starts 13.00.





Come and discover how the Four Rooms of Change can be used in a sales situation. What can you expect during a sales call of a client that is in self-censorship?

Giuliano Tarditi and Mattias Westerman are two certified users who met during their Certification Training and found that they had a common background, need, and a dream. This meeting led to their Italy- Sweden collaboration. Together with more than 200 sales people they have scrutinized the impact that the Four Rooms of Change has on the sales cycle.And how it can be used more pro-actively. Mattias and Giuliano will also present a newly developed support material as one of the outputs of their learning and practical experience. All who are interested in the innermost being of selling and its external forms will be inspired.


Four Rooms of Change – In the Service of Society

Lynda Jones 2017

Lynda Jones, a certified Four Rooms of Change® practitioner and her colleague Bob Campbell, have been chosen to design, deliver and lead the Residentials of the Tasmanian Leaders Program (TLP). Their aim is to introduce the Four Rooms of Change ® into these three, four-day learning sessions.  The present program has a strong emphasis on personality preferences using the Myer Briggs instrument, but there is no situational understanding of how people respond to change and transition, something Jones and Campbell believe to be a notable leadership development gap.

Meet Lynda and Bob to learn more about how the Four Rooms of Change can be used deliberately to support the development of an entire state in Australia.




The Contract is Everything

Paul Nordstrom on the importance of the contracting work in consultation. Comes with inspiring examples from collaborations that were successful and produced desirable results and those that did not.

What can one do in the consultative position and as a Four Rooms of Change practitioner to learn from these experiences when everything is moving so fast, and no one seems to be seriously interested in learning? What can one learn in the moment and afterwards?

Community Gathering and Meal Day 1

At 18:30 a delicious meal is served in an elegant, yet relaxed atmosphere. Here we mingle, talk, meet new colleagues and/or reconnect with old friends.



Time: The conference opens 09:00. Guests are welcome to join at 10:00.





Explore more of the Four Rooms possibilities– and possible restrictions – with other users and guests.

Thursday the hour between 09:00 – 10:00 is for users only. At 10:00 we welcome our guests to register!

During the day, we will work in “stations”– specifically arranged meeting spaces whit different themes or topics for presentations, conversations, broadening and deepening our experiences with the Four Rooms of Change. The purpose is straightforward and clear: to inspire ideas and reflections as well as learning and development. Come prepared to immerse yourself in new ideas or reignite old passions.


Meeting places – or “stations” currently under construction:

  • Feedback: How can we use feedback from the Four Rooms analytical instruments to work with giving and receiving feedback, individually and in groups. We will explore examples that were successful and those attempts that were less successful
  • The Yes / No Conflict: The two very different approaches to life are front and center using the Four Rooms. How our personal preferences affect our view is also critical. Here we will examine the personality variables that Claes Janssen discovered, Self-censoring vs. Outsider experiences. The Yes-/No-synthesis – as you know dear user, it has many names.
  • Four Rooms of Change in the IT Environment: Perhaps one of the most significantly impacted technological and most often talked about areas in the world of work today. Learn how the Four Rooms of Change is making a difference.
  • School: It is not an exaggeration to say that it is here as the basis for the future is laid. And the Four Rooms of Change changes schools – one classroom at a time. Come and learn what happens in the Four Rooms of Change moments in a classroom and the school a Report from the School’s Project and the most recent implementation.
  • Integration: The importance of integration can hardly be underestimated or overstated. When we understand our integration, and we work with it within ourselves, and with others, we learn how to surrender the to Four Rooms of Change. Come for an in-depth experience and learning exchange. To understand how and why or as one user said: “ the personal preference variables are easy to comprehend, but the real knowledge comes from understanding your Integration.”
  • Standing out on social media: The Four Rooms of Change team at Drottninggatan are working intensively to strengthening the Four Rooms of Change profile and branding in particular on LinkedIn and Facebook. During the summer and before the User Conference, the difference will be felt and seen more clearly. The question at this venue is how we can help 300+ active users, in Sweden and internationally, to ”stand out,” to be labeled – in a new way that helps potential clients, customers, organizations or other looking for help mastering change to finds us and get our services used?

The day’s program concludes at 18.00. Guests are welcome at 10:00.
Community Gathering and Meal at 18.30. We have invited a different guest each evening to stimulate and inspire us.



Time: The conference opens 09:00 and concludes 13:00.




Work Environment. Three completely different perspectives – all of which give us a little extra help to understand this mandate if we choose to.

The researcher: ”You are listening to your employees – but you don’t hear them!”

Peter Svensson, is a Docent and lecturer in the Department of Business Administration at Lund University. Svensson has conducted targeted research on employee surveys. Seven organizations participated in the case study; a district administration, a hospital, a developer of mobile technology, a chemical plant, a food producer, a region and a grocery store chain. Sixty-nine interviews were conducted with managers and employees on how they conduct and analyze the survey data.

A lot of money is spent on surveys, which are of a large symbolic significance. According to the study, companies have three different purposes for their employee surveys. First, it is considered as required by the Work Environment Act (in Sweden); secondly, the questionnaire might contribute to increasing democracy in the workplace by making each voice heard and thirdly, it is perceived as giving everyone the opportunity to contribute to organizational changes and business improvements.

We will take part in and discuss Svensson research, data, and conclusions.

Then we will investigate the Organizational Barometer as an alternative or a complement to anonymous surveys – to be better equipped to help our clients and customers become more informed and make wiser or conscious realistic choices.

Afs, SAM, and OSA. Here is a report from the group working on the concept Four Rooms of Change in Work Environment Work”.

We will share the concepts in an easy to follow flow diagram, and you will get take a copy of the conceptualization of that flow with you.

During the last year different constellations of users worked on the theme Work Environment, the work group included Marie Lindgren, Bengt Lindström, Alexandra Moore, Paul Nordström, Eva Persson, Camilla Wiberg and Eva Widegren. The work that eventually came to resemble a concept has come to be called the ”Four Rooms of Change in Work Environment Work.” During Friday we will learn more!

Fyrarummaren AB is an AFA-approved education organizer in systematic work environment work. The Organizational Barometer and its complete workflow constitute a reliable assurance to meet the demands of Afsen.

For the third consecutive year, Torsby Community has the lowest number of staff on sick leave of the 290 municipalities in Sweden – we are lifting our hat and congratulating them on a long-term and fruitful work.

Here is their story in brief–in less than ten years, Torsby moved from being among the municipalities with the highest sick leave figures in Sweden (about 10%), to among the lowest for three lowest consecutive years (approximately 4%). This cost reduction is significant when you consider that, according to some estimates, it equates to about 27 million per year savings for the taxpayers. That is a lot of taxpayer money for a small municipality in northwestern Värmland. Not to mention the suffering that both staff and employees do not have now as compared to how it was before.

And best of all (for us in the Four Rooms User Forum): We can feel so proud and happy that both the municipality of Torsby, and their corporate health The Health Link puts the spot light on the Four Rooms of Change and its having had a central role in this outcome.

With these three themes and maybe a few more; we can take advantage of what is happening in the work environment arena and the results Fyrarummaren showed! Armed with this information, we can most likely meet a customer company with relevant data and a Fyrarummaren experience to share.
