Join me and my guests for a conversation about how people at the leading edge of business are finding ways to create a generative future through their work. Discover some of the essential qualities, capacities and practices that can help you on the way to becoming a more conscious leader.
Ep.6 Ask Me Three? Has the informality of lockdown helped democratise work? with Sarah James Wright and Anna Cappellini
Sarah is quizzed by former client, Communications Strategist Anna Cappellini, on whether pandemic changes in work culture will last. Will we retain the informality of lockdown routines or will the corporate mask go back on? Has this experience helped us move towards more generative teams? We look at the value of embracing the contrarian within teams and including the shadow in brand identity.
Ep. 5 Looking into the Mystery (Part 1) with Sarah James Wright and Adam Duncan
Sarah is joined by Adam Duncan, author of The Power of Ageing: Finding Yourself in the Second Half of Life, to share common experiences in exploring the evolution of consciousness. How can being present to our own mortality and awareness of living in a whole universe help us enter into a different relationship with life itself? Discover joy in uncertainty and deeper connection in vulnerability amidst a discussion on intergenerational differences in fear, purpose and value.
Ep.4 How to Do Less in order to Be More with Sarah James Wright
Sarah explains the first step in any true transformation journey begins with building capacity into the system, whether on an individual or collective level. Although it’s hard to disrupt our pattern of ‘efforting’, unless we avoid pushing expectation onto an already overworked system, there can be no space to discover anything new. Find out how nurturing the capacity to explore is a key aspect of generative leadership and what you can do to create that space for yourself.
Ep.3 Embracing Uncertainty with Sarah James Wright and Alison Wooding
Join the co-founders of GenerativeWork.Space in conversation on a key aspect of generative leadership. Discover how embracing uncertainty is a prerequisite to boosting creativity and unlocking hidden potential in organisations. We discuss how expanding our frame of awareness helps us meet the growing complexity of the times we’re living in. And how our ability to adapt to the new depends on whether our organisational culture is based on fear or trust.
Ep.2 Ask Me Three? Sadie Sharp interviews Sarah James Wright
Sarah James Wright is interviewed by former client Sadie Sharp about how she got started with working generatively and how the future of work might equate to taking the red pill or the blue pill in The Matrix (although we get the colours mixed up in the interview!). We talk about the masks both individuals and organisations tend to wear, the relief of discovering a different way or working, and what the impact of this has been on Sadie’s own work.
Ep.1 What to expect from the Generative Work Podcast with Sarah James Wright
Sarah James Wright introduces the Generative Work Podcast and outlines the motivations for setting up this space and what you can expect to find in future episodes. Discover what kind of people at the leading edge of the conscious business movement will have a voice here and how it will delve into the qualities and capacities of a generative leader, to inspire your own leadership journey. And why clients will be turning the tables on Sarah and asking her what it means to be living and working in this new and future fit way.
