Some really interesting thoughts

Chris Ware's curator insight, April 30, 2013 1:55 AM

I want you to think about how drama can help you with real life siuations. Where and how could you use imprevisation skills? Can you recall a time, When you have used your drama skills, to get what you wanted?

Renae Phillips's curator insight, May 7, 2013 8:08 PM

They say Drama is just acting and has nothing to do with the real world, but i disagree strongly.  When have you been in a situation in the real world where you had to think fast on your feet and improvise?  Where have you used what you learnt in drama to help you get what you want in life? Drama is all about action reaction and plays a strong role in your everyday life.

15 Ways to Turn I Don't Know into an Aha Moment! - The Launchpad - The Coaching Tools Company Blog | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

"Often when our clients say “I don’t know”, they really do know – they’re just unwilling to acknowledge or face the answer. If it was was easy to say aloud they would have done so. There can be many reasons for the “I don’t know”, but if we trust our instincts and explore gently – we may just be rewarded with an Aha moment!"

Tyler Durden’s 8 Rules of Innovation | Lateral Action | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

"We all want to do remarkable things, and lead remarkable lives.

No one wants to spend the day engaged in mundane productivity in pursuit of a meaningless consumer existence. Certainly not you, right?

So why do we find it so hard to break out of our rut and do truly innovative things?

Because it’s hard. Because it often requires us to significantly alter our perspectives and step outside our comfort zones.

It’s almost like becoming another person".

Ariana Amorim's insight:

All the ideas and rules depicted in this article are about coaching, right?  It's all about beliefs, perspectives, vision, values and courage to step out from our comfort zones. Innovation is all about living, truly living.

What Were You Born To Do? (And Other Intimidating Questions) • The Butterfly Maiden Project

What Were You Born To Do? (And Other Intimidating Questions) • The Butterfly Maiden Project | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
One of my favorite questions to ask my clients is, “What were you born to do?”

Much more often than not, the response is an un-confident, mumbled statement that instantly reveals confusion and/or insecurities. I ask this question, not to make others uncomfortable, but to get to a tender spot right off the bat so we can identify areas that need a jump start, by looking at the big picture.

So, let me ask you – What were you born to do?

Dave Wood's curator insight, February 1, 2013 1:44 PM

This is a great question to ask when clients are at a cross roads.  It comes up often. My experience is people often struggle to verbally articulate this.  Visual coaching is a great way to support people to tease this out. Individual sessions are one  way to do this.  However Chrstina Merkley's online Shift-It group coaching programme is a great alternative.  Check it out at http://tinyurl.com/shiftitgroupprogram

Stop Focusing on Your Performance « Peter Bregman

Stop Focusing on Your Performance « Peter Bregman | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

"If you view life as a performance, your failures will be so painful and terrifying that you will stop experimenting. But if you view life as an experience, your failures are just part of that experience.

What makes a performance different than an experience? It’s all in your head."

Ariana Amorim's insight:

Great post by Peter Bregman.

Do you live your life as an experience or as a performance? If you are in "presentation" mode, try refocusing your attention on the experience.

 Work is a function of the ego. Play is an expression of the soul.

 

When you identify yourself as a human doing, life becomes work.

Do you dare to dream?

Since our childhood we all know how to dream. Asleep and awake. Thanks to the power of our imagination we believe we are capable of achieving anything we can dream of. However, as we grow older we lose this wonderful ability we'll later need to be creative, to innovate, to change our lives and to transform our organizations. We invite you to dare to dream again, to challenge your comfort zone, and to enjoy the pleasure of turning your dreams into reality.

Empathy, Vulnerability, Shame and Failure

 

I recently had the great privilege and pleasure of interviewing Brené Brown, one of the world’s most original and exciting thinkers about emotional life, before a packed audience at London’s historic Conway Hall. It was no surprise that the event, organised by The School of Life, sold out its five hundred tickets within a record time of 48 hours. (...)

To give you a taste of her book, and the conversation we had, I’d like to pick out five of Brené’s ideas that I find to be particularly insightful, original and applicable to everyday life.
