WHAT IS WORK NOW? Here's the visual harvest from Day 2 of 65 ALIVE!
 
In starting their conversation by asking each other potent questions, Samantha Slade and Ed Hoffman reminded us that the capacity to live in questions is a key leadership attribute.
 
LEADERSHIP IS CHANGING
Ed talked about the burden we've put on leaders up to now of "having to be in control". Leaders have said: "Don't bring me a problem, bring me a solution!" but this often leads to stunted thinking and the inability to share the issues that would lead to innovation.
 
HOW WE WORK TOGETHER IS CHANGING
Samantha reflected that young people are using the words "care" and "well-being" often. The skillset of real, empathetic listening, which feels like caring, is very important. Percolab invites its members to identify their own personal "success donut" with attention to what success truly means at the minimum, but also at the maximum, individually and together.
 
Small changes, like asking team members to host their part of the co-created team meeting agenda are small movements that create big change. Action then comes out of embodied experience -- a totally different paradigm.
 
WHAT WE THINK IS IMPORTANT IS CHANGING
They also talked about how a regenerative lens starts by using gratitude as a foundation. The ability to host spaces for movement and creativity creates energy between us, you might even call it love. We are on the cusp of the future story of work.
 
HOW WE EXPRESS OURSELVES IS CHANGING
Bringing it all together, improvisational pianist Stephen Jacob created a magnificent piece of music for our senses, while showing us an app writing down the music at the same time. Cool and beautiful! Music is also storytelling.
 
Here's Jill Greenbaum's visual harvest -- what do you see?
