Conversation with a leader about The Corporate Theatre and its Inspirational Leadership Program – Part 2 Empathy

Fotolia 174678944 S This conversation took place over an hour on 18th January 2017. The individual is the COO of a division in a global company, and leads a team of about 100 people. He participated in several Corporate Theatre learning events in his previous company, and the purpose of this conversation was to find out how he used his learning about empathy to create an inspired culture in his new organization, and how that has contributed to its outstanding performance.  How has our work on empathy helped you and your current team to inspire performance? Well, I’m very anti-hierarchical. I don’t have the best ideas. I let people go in their own direction. I give decision making to the younger people. I always look at them as though they can do wonderful things.  We find out very quickly who will not get lost, and I feel it with great depth.  That’s really...

Looking out of the window.

Fotolia 107959691 S Through exercises, rehearsals and seminars The Corporate theatre draws on the combined power of Performing Arts, Philosophy, Psychology and business acumen to develop new ways to reconnect leaders with their inspirational powers, something we consider vital in the relationship economy. In this post, we present you with one of many exercises which can help you to be inspired by what you see around you and can help you to reconnect with your natural inspirational powers. Once you rediscover your powers and know how to use them you will lead in a new way fostering growth and enabling your company to thrive in the new relationship economy. Think of a group of high potentials who have come together for a leadership training program.

Being Inspired.

two bods We actually can’t avoid being inspired, nor can we avoid inspiring others. Chance and our humanity will have their way: we dream our dreams; we reach out to, and love, each other; we are, when we are brave, true to our real selves, and we are inspired when we witness these things. We are moved by great music, by drama on stage and off it, and by the unselfishness of ordinary people. And ordinary people do the same for us: we have each given and received Inspiration, for it is part of being human. However, by developing our capacity to receive and give Inspiration consciously, and with courage, will and awareness, we can grow habits that can help more of us live more fully, and help each other to do the same.  We can ‘lead’ ourselves and each other to become less ordinary and more fully human.

We live our lives as though we had another one in the bank...

Fotolia 121133524 S In our workshops we do an exercise that shows our participants how to allow a sensory, granular, event-based narrative to open up to the picture, waiting in the wings as it were, that wants to come on stage. Imagine 20 people in a large rehearsal space, empty except for easily moveable chairs. We ask them to divide into 10 pairs. Each pair takes two chairs, and they sit opposite each other so they are face to face and quite close. We then ask one person in each pair, let’s call them ‘A’, to imagine a moment in their life that animated their true self and awakened it. As soon as they are ready, we ask all the ‘A’s to describe their chosen moment to their ‘B’s. The room comes alive with murmuring as the ‘A’s begin. The ‘B’s’ role is no less vital than the ‘A’s. We have already taken...
