Week – #22a The Silence Part III A Coin for Workability

Leadership Without Being in Charge

A solution to knowing what you want, then knowing or not knowing what to do but not doing anything, anyway, may first require seeing the source of the problem.  I don’t buy the fear theory either.  I suspect the fear story only adds fuel to the fire for most people and increases the crazy. Anything that keeps the unconscious mind in charge makes the unconscious happy. Did you catch the clue?

The path keeping the unconscious mind happy may not be a workable path. Some insist we only need to retrain her. That requires hours of committed work and what if the new rules, habits and patterns, always based on some past thought process, are insufficient for your new future but especially for right now? I know you have to do something and anything is better than nothing. OH! Another way to keep the subconscious happy I suspect.

Week – #22a The Silence Part II We are ALL Crazy

Leadership Without Being in Charge

Last week’s 48-hour excursion into the Silence, some call it “the Drift”, left me in a wonderful state.  Attempting to explain what I saw I discovered a need to explain a few things first. I have engaged in so many different ways of looking at the world, finding one silence4that explains them all may not be realistic. Will you settle for an explanation for what I see in simple to understand language?  My issue and current main concern: people, including me, want what they want and then, even when knowing what to do, do not do it! Even when doing what to do has worked in the past may be the very reason they stop doing it! Knowing ‘why’ has no power. I suspect any power available disappears with why, because and is.

In the last post, I identified five parts of what I see as formulation.  There are a…

Week – #22a The Silence Part I

Leadership Without Being in Charge

Stopping any of my automatic habitual routines seems to knock me into ‘now’.  Last week I spent three continuous days fasting. The middle 48 hours was no talking, no TV, no emails, no internet, staying in the Silence.  My experience told me eliminating all the usual youarethedanceroutines, habits and distractions grants a more concentrated focus.

I discovered my somebody and nobody persona.

I focused on ‘out-here’ instead of the monologue ‘in-here’. I still spent my usual three hours a day of visualizing and imagining my unimaginable future, what I call what I don’t know that I don’t know.  As has happened before when I ‘returned’ many things I have never seen before that was always there suddenly appear shocking and crystal-clear.  Being ‘out-here’ NOW is the only place anything gets done! Results appear from a life lived on the court versus thinking in the stands. Knowing something in the stands…

Week – #22a Imagination Running Wild

Leadership Without Being in Charge

We are in another ‘review’ week and I am focusing on imagination this week.

Interestingly, reading David Cain’s post today I found it perfect for my current state of mind.

The thinking mind is like a perpetually-running chainsaw that thinks everything is a tree. – David Cain

Me thinks I ‘think’ too much! Do you? imagination2

Thinking is a wonderful tool if it’s applied. Thinking, however, can not become the master. Thinking is a very bad master. If you’re dominated by thinking then your life becomes very restricted. – Eckhart Tolle

What will imagination do for you besides inventing castles in the sky?

There are no shortcuts in life – only those we imagine. – Frank Leahy

I am wondering how much imagination really takes place in the world today. The various ‘thought camps’ appear nothing more than mirror images of each other.

If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t…

Direct Recruiting

Innovative recruiting jean-paul smalls

A while back I ran a survey across a number of websites to ask peoples opinions on what they thought were the most innovative recruitment strategies they had come across.  I compiled the results in an article –  Most Innovative Recruitment Strategies – Part 1.

I had initially anticipated I would write a part 2 much earlier, but er…..I got side tracked.  Visitors to this post will range from novice to expert, so some of the things mentioned might not seem innovative to you, but hopefully you’ll see something you like, maybe something you can use as part of your own direct recruitment strategy.

So where to begin?

Direct Recruiting

About a month back after reading a few articles concerning original and innovative ways companies were using to engage and attract candidates; I decided to throw the question out there on various professional networking groups across the World, “What are the most innovative recruitment/candidate attraction methods you’ve used or come across?  More importantly how effective were they?

I had some great feedback and decided to compile them for all to see.  I think I may even keep this running as a series every few months.

One of the overriding themes of the responses was the difficulty with balancing innovative/fresh ideas with targeting the right demographic/skill set whilst providing a ROI.  What is innovative in one industry is not necessarily innovative in another.  It was great to see ideas covering every stage of the recruitment process, including consideration of the very message you want to covey before the planning process even…
