What is inner change?

Inner Change

 

Inner change covers those issues that affect you on a personal, interior level.

Distinct from other advisers, coaches or consultants, Halcyon specialises in helping you understand and deal with both inner and outer change, believing that only by finding such a balance can you thrive fully.

We believe that inner change occurs at three primary levels: emotional, physical, and valuable.

 

What is outer change?

Change

 

Outer change covers those issues that exist in the external world.

Distinct from other advisers, coaches or consultants, Halcyon specialises in helping you understand and deal with both outer and inner change, believing that only by finding such a balance can you thrive fully.

We believe that outer change occurs at seven primary levels: Cultural; Economic; Environmental; Organisational; Political; Societal and Technological.

 

What's Changing? - Artificial Intelligence

AI

 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is typically defined as the ability of a machine to perform cognitive functions we associate with human minds, such as perceiving, reasoning, learning, interacting with the environment, problem solving, and even exercising creativity. Examples of technologies that enable AI to solve business problems are robotics and autonomous vehicles, computer vision, language, virtual agents, and machine learning.

A call to action. Time to explore these unexplored histories together.

  • The wheelchair has long been the primary solution for those with mobility challenges, yet the design has not changed drastically in hundreds of years. But new walking robots may finally be ready to disrupt the space, with one exoskeleton becoming the first to allow a paraplegic man to walk fully upright, without the need for crutches.
