Courage, Curiosity, and
Connection:
Practical Tools for Creating Space and
Keeping Your Head While Navigating a
Changing World
Introduction
Getting Stuck in Distress
• Something is going to happen
• That Happening is going to be awful
• That Something is Going to Be My Fault
• (Repeat)
Tools of the Trade
• Uniqueness of the Practice
• Seek and Present Information
• Work on Your Own
• Avoid Risk and Find Certainty
• Think Criticially (With Skepticism, Pessimism)
• Compete
• Follow the Rules
How Do You Use the Tools?
• Seek Compensation, Clients, Advancement
• Get Affirmation (from Clients, Decision-makers,
Higher-Ups)
• Avoid Blame in a Zero-Sum Game
• Extrinsic and Linear
How Are The Tools When Things
Don’t Go As “Planned”?
• When The Rules Change (Or There Are No
Rules)?
• In Your Personal Relationships?
And The New Tools?
Responses to Distress (Or the
Perception of Distress)
• The need to try and control it
• Suffering=Pain x Resistance
• Getting Stuck
• The Open Loop
What is Missing When Distress Hits?
• The Capability to Manage Emotion
• Space to Consider How to Respond And Adapt
Rather Than React
• Context/Awareness
• Cooperation/Collaboration/Communication
(Listening)
Another Tool
• Actively notice new things -->puts you in
the present -->makes you aware of context
• Awareness creates space (and vice versa)
One Definition
• Mindlessness- the application of yesterday's
business solutions to today's problems
• Mindfulness- attunement to today's
demands to avoid tomorrow's problems
• If you want to change it, you have to see it
for what it really is.
- Ellen Langer
Creativity= Curiosity>Fear
Be Aware of Your Blind Spots
