I love working with other people to provoke creativity and generate energy.
I recently spent a morning with a colleague, holding each other to account for services we want to develop. Having spotted opportunities to offer coaching and leadership workshops, we are collaborating; from a place of confidence in the value of our acuity – we are exploring ways to communicate with as yet unknown future beneficiaries.
We had a provocative and fun conversation noticing the span and power of “trios” of values…
The full spectrum of a powerful concept can be evoked in three words.
Ethics, Standards, Values.
These three words provoke an internal conversation – without needing to point to anything more. “What are my ethical standards – and do I think I make decisions that are consistent with my values?”
When did you last have that conversation?
One of the reflective pieces I have internal conversations on is prompted by the question, “What would I have done…?”
I find the trio of Integrity, naivety and selfishness provide a significant challenge.
Do I act from a position of integrity? Was my naivety innocent, convenient or lazy? Or, do I actually need to be more selfish?
