Facing The Tiger
Unleashing The Human Spirit at Work
You don’t need to CHANGE yourself.
You need to COME HOME to yourself.
This changes EVERYTHING.
Episode 1: Why The Tiger?
‘When you name it, you can tame it’. Naming a ‘tiger’ makes it real and gives you a chance to see it for what it is.
It is a clear indicator that what you have been doing isn’t working, that something different will be needed. Like when facing a very good tennis player, a ‘tiger’ is an opportunity to ‘raise your game’.
Medical doctors facing an unknown situation sometimes inject a tracing element into your body so they can ‘see what your internal system does with it’.
Naming a ‘tiger’ turns some difficult challenge facing you into an excellent diagnostic ‘moment’, allowing you to ‘see what your internal system does with it’. And when you run that ‘tiger’ through The Five Questions, significant insights come to the surface, resulting in greater clarity, courage and completion.
That’s why it all starts with a ‘tiger’.
What is a ‘tiger’ in your life right now?
Episode 3: What is self-mastery?
In 600 BCE, Lao Tsu put it this way:
Those who know much about many things may be wise, but those who understand themselves are even wiser. Those who are master over many people may be powerful, but those who are mastering themselves are more powerful still.
In webinar Episode #3 we will explore: How Self-Mastery IS a kind of secret. What ’mastery’ entails (intention/practice, courage and authenticity) What is the ‘Self’ that needs mastering? And what are the potential risks and potential benefits?
A Conversation with Dr Barry Johnson
Polarities are everywhere today and our inability to see and embrace them is contributing to major conflicts around the world. The recent election in America is the perfect example of how we tend to polarize situations into what we see as competing oppostites—or poles—with a ‘winner’ and a ‘loser’. Here are a few examples from the headlines:
– Left vs Right
– Freedom vs Law & Order
– Healthy People vs Healthy Economy
– Mercy vs Justice What if the ‘VS’ (the ‘OR’) in between these positions (poles) is actually an ‘AND’?
What if what we need is not Mercy OR Justice, but Mercy AND Justice? At the organizational level, what if it is not Cost OR Quality, but Cost AND Quality. Not My Success OR My Colleagues’ Success, but My Success AND My Colleagues Success.
So you are not the leader of a country? Tune into this webinar and discover insights to apply in your work group and in your most important relationship
• Our relationships at home and at work.
• What polarities are present in YOUR relationships – and are you consciously caring for them
• Which pole of a key polarity are you over-emphasizing in a relationship – at the expense of its opposite? • What is that tendency ’costing’ you, your partner, and your relationship?
• What would be a simple-but-profound step in the direction of getting into the natural flow of energy between and around BOTH poles, turning the ‘or’ into the transforming ‘and’?
