What is the Dojo?
The Dojo is a forum for learning and connecting with others. We share teachings around staying true to the deepest level of nature and culture wisdom and then trusting the process and delivering it in the right time, right place, and right state of being. It's a community of practice made better through your participation.
Dojo #4 Call Summary
This month tells the story of Mark and Roberto's Connected Leader training at Google and the relevance nature connection has in the workplace. Program managers have the embodied experience of curiosity, exploring the unknown and syncing into the collective intelligence of the group. One participant said " My intention for coming today was to make myself a better leader, now I realize it's to make other people better leaders".
“Maintaining a state of not knowing is actually something that needs to be cultivated, and it's not an easy thing to do, especially when we have unconscious or unspoken norms in society to know the answer, be smart, and to be experts... especially as people managers.”
Quotes & Key Takeaways
"Maintaining a state of not knowing is actually something that needs to be cultivated. And it's not an easy thing to do especially when we have unconscious or unspoken norms in society to know the answer and to be smart and to be an experts. This is especially true as people managers."
"And that kind of not knowing, that unsolvable mystery, created the tension of.. 'Oh, this is an adventure, I don't get to know what everything is.' "
"The story in general for me is teachings around staying true to the deepest level of nature and culture wisdom that has been given to me. But also, arising in the moment, and then trusting the process and delivering it in the right time, right place, right being. It makes sense to people as you walk them through the stages of awareness because the people who cross that parking lot back into the building were not the same ones who left that day. They got to a place where they themselves were able to acknowledge that."
"How do I want to contribute and consolidate?"
"There is a teaching around every corner."
