The Business of Happiness

The Business of Happiness

We’ve neglected one relationship for too long – that with ourselves  “Happiness is your nature. It’s not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.” Sri Ramana Maharshi  What a beautiful quote.  And how entirely apt it is for now when many of us are literally locked inside our homes – banned from the outside with only an occasional outing for necessities or to get some exercise – banned from distractions provided by…

Our leaders must make friends with vulnerability and imperfection

Our leaders must make friends with vulnerability and imperfection

Leadership and suspicion. Leadership and authenticity don’t always go hand in hand. Politicians and authenticity even less so. With great power comes great responsibility, and along with that, often quite a bit of suspicion from the people that they have power over. The term “power over” itself is problematic. Better and more helpful is “care for,” but people don’t often feel “cared for” or even like a priority for their leaders. Suspicion and distrust fester. Kim Scott, former CEO coach…

True Heros

True Heroes

Guest blog by Jeff Buchanan, Lieutenant General, U.S. Army (Ret) and Worldmaker International board member. The word hero is often misunderstood and poorly applied in today’s society.

The word hero comes from the ancient Greeks and it sets forth only two requirements: courageous acts and a noble purpose. On the 26th of February, 2007, the entertainment…

Resiliency Tool: What’s Your WHY?

As we continue to explore the concept and characteristics of those with strong resilience, it is important to understand what underpins their drive.  Many resilient people have a true appreciation of their WHY; what impact they want to have externally and they are often committed to a cause bigger to them. Having an understanding of your ‘Why’ can help shape direction, meaning, confidence and focus whilst also contributing to building your resilience. What makes you tick? What motivates you throughout…

How to be Resilient

What does resilience mean to you? At this time of great uncertainty during a global pandemic, we are hearing this work used with greater frequency across different platforms.  What resilience is not… is thinking you need to figure things out yourself or puffing out your chest and pretending everything is fine when really it isn’t. We have some tough situations, critical decisions, and big emotions to deal with here. The strongest people don’t pretend that they always have it together.…

The global pandemic certainly shines a light on our “go to” responses and our resilience process! What are you learning about the way you react to challenging situations? Do you let them define you, do you focus on finding your way back to baseline, or do you embrace growth? Worldmaker crisis response expert, Bob VandePol, talks about the range of emotions…
