  • Olaf shared from The Way of Nowhere: Eight Questions to Release Our Creative Potential by Nick Udall, Nic Turner
    The world is changing and it needs a new form of leadership that is based on a very different view of reality and consciousness from what is currently the norm. New technologies alone are not going to meet the challenges that face us; humans are. To do this we must start with the evolution of our own consciousness – we must lead ourselves. Once we have established a balance between interconnectness and separateness in ourselves, we can help others on the same journey of consciousness.

  • Olaf shared from Riding the Creative Rollercoaster: How Leaders Evoke Creativity, Productivity and Innovation by Nick Udall
    The challenge is that many leaders are good at, taught to, and rewarded for, taking up space, as opposed to the art of creating and holding space.
    Note: How do you lead? Taking up space or holding space? Lovely.
  • Olaf shared from Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
    What kind of world would we create if three times a day we activated our compassion and reason as we sat down to eat, if we had the moral imagination and the pragmatic will to change our most fundamental act of consumption?

  • Olaf shared from Sell Your Thoughts by Matt Church, Peter Cook, Scott Stein
    key to practising a possibility mindset is not to confuse probability with possibility. Probability is determined by past experience; possibility is determined by your imagination.

  • Olaf shared from Joy, Inc.: How We Built a Workplace People Love by Richard Sheridan
    Imagine a six-year-old child on an unfamiliar walk near the edge of a deep, dark forest. The child will stand frozen and frightened, unable to move forward. But place an equally frightened six-year-old friend beside him and together they may confidently travel this unknown space together, hand in hand. Just like the buddy system we learned in childhood swim classes, pairing helps us move into the unknown with confidence and courage, comforted by the safety such a system provides.
    Note: Pairing and courage. Ty @menloprez #Joy
  • Olaf shared from Mindsight by Daniel Siegel
    A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement...
