Inspired by Carol Anderson’s article and question: “At what point do organizations look inside themselves for answers? At what point do they realize that the answers lie in themselves if they ask the right questions?” I imagined a conference table with the entire boardroom of a large company. On the table are colorful healthy organic smoothies, fresh source water with mint, and fresh fruit. Pieces of paper and a pen for everyone.
The CEO opening the meeting welcoming everyone, thanking them for last week’s hard work, effort, and the energy of love that everyone has put into the job. This meeting is about next week or next month. New products to look at. New marketing strategies. Perhaps, topics for the newsletter, communication, or whatever.
The CEO starts the meeting by asking: I would like you all to close your eyes for a moment and find that soft center inside of you. Travel down from the inside of your eyes to the center of your heart. Feel in the meantime the chair beneath you. Your back leaning against it. Your feet on the floor. The small breeze coming in through the window, touching your skin. And when you are fully present with yourself, I would like you to connect to your intuition when I ask you the following:
What is the truth of …
– The new product or service we are thinking about putting on the market.
– Do people really need it? Write down yes or no.
– Does it bring them love and joy? Freedom? Prosperity? Truth?
– Does it bring us? As a company? Individually? The Earth? The Universe?
Or does it only take from the earth? Take from our clients? Us?
In other words; Is it for the highest good of all?
– And if so. How shall we market it? As we come from a place of truth and believing in ourselves and our product/service.
The board members are writing down everything that comes in. Not using their thinking heads, but tapping into their intuition to receive the answers. When they are finished the CEO says:
I will share what I have got to get us started, but as this vessel can only receive so much, I would love to hear what you received. As all these truths are a piece of a larger puzzle.
When people share what they came up with, everybody is listening from their centered place. There is no judgment. No eagerness to stop and interrupt and be heard. This is a company that supports each and everyone to stay centered. From the moment someone new walks in. It’s in every meeting, in every interaction. There is no one better. We are all part of the whole and each person is programmed by the Universe on purpose in their own unique way, to each bring a piece of a larger puzzle, is the companies motto.
Performance interviews with the staff are therefore about the same. It is not about the accomplishment, but about how staff members feel within themselves. If their minds seem occupied with limiting beliefs or insecurities, feeling blocked somehow, someone will guide them not to seek advice from others, but to go within and search for the truth. To integrate that truth and clear the limiting belief.
Imagine how these people come home after a day’s work. Instead of losing energy during the day, they will come home elevated, inspired, eager to do more, and tap into their intuition more often. To make products better, cheaper, healthier.
Let’s start each day with the most important company in this entire world: YOU! As we have been programmed with our flaws, skills, and talents, to do something great. Each in our own way. Each as a little piece of the larger puzzle called life.
May this piece of music help you to connect with your inner wisdom and bring inspired ideas for the benefit of all.
