New month, new possibilities. When time allows, I share a curated post—the topic of July: six ways to start with art and heart for work, learning and leadership. Read on what caught my attention.
“art is a p(art) of every st(art)” — @johnmaeda
“Art, or as I call it heART, is not a skill, a process or a tool for coping and entertaining. It is the very essence at the center of our being that when evoked and practiced helps us create new paradigms.
(…) “Learning is messy and non-linear. It becomes wisdom as we experience that messiness in full. Living fully (heARTfully) might require we start learning to listen to that messiness, not to control it but to express it with beauty and harmony.” — @FBanishoeib
“No longer asking Who will sink and who will swim? Together we rise”
— Caitlin M. Aamodt
I also share my Pandemic haiku after a hike I did in the mountain of the Alps. Explore more in this blog post on new heights I reached.
Networks & Systems
“A system is never the sum of its parts. It is the product of its interactions.” — Russell Ackoff HT @PaulJocelyn
“Network value is about individual contribution and team contribution and organizational contribution. All connected.
Network value is all working with some agility and some replicable and some speed and some slowing down. Network value is complex and dynamic.
Network value is people, nested systems, working within a system. Network value is systems thinking.” — Bruce McTague
“But my introversion is my super-power. As an introvert I spend time with myself, constantly reconnecting with my personal values and priorities. As an introvert I find the space to reflect, analyse, and strategize.
There is nothing timid, silly, or weak about the quietness of the introvert. It is not an effacing of assertiveness; it’s a gathering of strength.” — @DangerousMere
“#Regenerative #leadership calls for a profound paradigm shift from the present models of leadership characterized by power, control, assertiveness, aggression, competition, and ‘winner takes all’ mindset.
Regenerative Leaders are facilitators and stewards of their organizations, communities, societies. They put their businesses in service to life, not the other way round.” — @sahana2802
