How are you? Busy? If so this insightful article is a must read: http://onbeing.org/blog/the-disease-of-being-busy/
I often recommend this poignant and pertinent piece to help people understand the context propelling us to place explicit attention on humanising work. Our intention is not to deny the reality of our busy lives, 24/7 connectivity and having to do even more with even less, but rather to create islands of respite within the storm. Talkpoint provides breathing spaces, time for reflection, independent thinking and genuine human-to-human connection.
As the article explains: “We need a different relationship to work, to technology. We know what we want: a meaningful life, a sense of community, a balanced existence. It’s not just about “leaning in” or faster iPhones. We want to be truly human.”
Would you benefit from dedicated time to:
- reflect on your work, life, boundaries and purpose?
- focus on your aspirations, challenges and the bigger picture?
- develop your “human” skills and courageous leadership capabilities?
- share insights with, and gain diverse perspectives from, a supportive, external peer network?
- connect human-to-human?
We invite you to join the next cohort of curious professionals embarking on the Talkpoint Foundation Program.
The foundation program is a series of 5 half-day meetings, over a 5 month period, dedicated to your personal and professional development in a collaborative learning environment. It is not another “thing to do” but rather a “space to be”. An opportunity to step out of the day to day busyness of life so as to gain perspective, focus and support.
Click here to express your interest and we will be in touch with further information. And if you know other curious professionals who might benefit from this program, please share this inviation with them as well.
