    Do our Minds really work Inside Out? A conversation to explore....

    This podcast series explores a game-changing understanding of the human mind that can exponentially increase the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation.


    This episode is a conversation with Helen Amery, a fellow coach of the understanding behind Quality of Mind, who poses an excellent inquiry question that any human being would benefit from exploring - Is the outside world created from the  mind?  Whether you are an experienced 'seeker', or someone who has never considered this question, explore with us on this episode...


    The discussion covers:


    Is it even the right question? Do we actually experience an outer and inner world?

    What can we look to in terms of our direct experience that points to the nature of reality, experience and the mind?

    Are we hood winked by our conditioning and perceptions to what might be going on?

    So what? Does it matter where it all comes from, and realising how it works?

    What's next, what is the relevance, and how to explore further

    What has this got to with how we communicate, lead and turn up at work? A conversation with Clare Dimond

    What has this got to with how we communicate, lead and turn up at work? A conversation with Clare Dimond

    This podcast series explores a game-changing understanding of the human mind that can exponentially increase the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation.


     


    This episode is a conversation with Clare Dimond, a skilled teacher of the understanding behind Quality of Mind, and a prolific and gifted author.  We discuss what this knowing of the true self and how the mind works, means for how we turn up at work, and how we communicate.


    The episodes covers:


    How the true freedom to be you, and express yourself gets restricted and shackled by the workplace

    How what we see in the world, our beliefs and thoughts are an OUTPUT of the system, not the input  

    The invisible limitations most people are sitting in because it looks so real in perception

    How we don't turn into a 'push over', or don't get what we want, if we realise the illusion of perception 

    The value of navigating the workplace with a psychological cleanliness and neutrality

    How our leadership and communication are feeding back to us all the time as to activity of our conditioned mind

    Why exploring ‘Before Psychology‘ is so needed and valuable. A conversation with Dr Amy Johnson

    This podcast series explores a game-changing understanding of the human mind that can exponentially increase the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation.
    In this episode I reconnect with previous show guest Dr Amy Johnson, we discuss the highly relevant question of why we believe 'Before Psychology' is so necessary and powerful yet overlooked.   Amy is the author of 'The Little Book of Big Change', she is a regularly featured expert on The Steve Harvey Show, Oprah.com, as well as Fox News, The Wall Street Journal and Self magazine.


    This is a relatively long episode, but it is all so very valuable - kick back and enjoy the exploration!  Please let us know what resonates


    The episodes covers:


    What is the 'before psychology' understanding we refer to in the Quality of Mind approach

    Why do are people now seeking something more than the psychological approaches to their wellbeing and performance  

    The difference between seeing the mind and the self as an entity (object) and an activity (process)

    How conditioning has misled us - what is our preoccupation with fixing our minds via psychology

    The relevance of making concessions when pointing people to this understanding 

    How come it makes everything in life more wonderful and simpler

    This episode is a little different to usual because we're not going to be focusing so upstream into the mechanics of the mind or what's before our psychology, instead focusing more downstream into the context of project management and change management and what gets in the way of organizations realising full benefits.

    What gets in the way of achieving full benefits realisation in a project

    The importance of clarity, and understanding separate realities 

    The downside of being too invested and attached to an outcome

    The difference between project management and change management

    Choosing the the right skills for the right role; technical SME .v. managing projects or change
