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. After several days of visiting plants, labs and company outlets, of meeting senior leaders and hearing about the company strategy, vision and values, they are suddenly asked to...

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 have a...

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...

The Power of Imagination.

Fotolia 102342882 S Seeing with our eyes is but the first step towards bringing the power of imagination to bear on the whole picture we might be experiencing. The next step is that, by letting go of the dominance of thinking, our imagination can ‘make’ our version of what the whole picture comprises; then we are ready to ‘breathe in’ the picture through the receptors of Mind, Heart, and Soul. The picture then becomes experience; the experience infuses us, ‘as if by breathing’; and infusion leads to animation which leads, as night follows day, to Inspiration.

The Unpredictability of Chance

Fotolia 119534772 XS   As humans with Receptors of Mind, Heart and Soul, we are bound up in the unpredictability of chance. This means that we actually can’t avoid being inspired, nor can we avoid inspiring others. We all dream our dreams; we all reach out to, and love, each other; we can, if we are brave, be true to our real selves. We are all 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 it consciously, and with courage, will and awareness, we can live more fully and help each other to do the same.  This, hopefully, will ‘lead’ us to become less ordinary and more human. We have a pathway to...
