“You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it.” Einstein
When projects, situations at work presents you and / or your teams with problems, how often do you take time to ask and reflect on the following questions:
- how present are you?
- what’s stopping you from being here?
- what’s your interference?
Managing your state of presence will help you / your team shift their perspective. Developing your self and your teams to have strong presence will create a sense of “being” rather than “doing,” embodying their identity and letting go of control, responsibility, process and tools. This demonstrates complete trust in the potential of the people present and their moment together.
When people are present, when their minds are present, there’s a sense of flow and stillness where a deep focus enables them to build deep rapport, trust and a connection to their issue at hand and the larger system.
When you are next in a meeting or discussing a problem, ask yourself; how present am I?
