  • While some people thrive on social interaction at work, others need more space and one-on-one communication. In a podcast, Isabel Berwick looked for answers on how introverts could get their voices heard in a working world that too often favours the loudest voices. For those managing introverts, Berwick's guests suggest looking for qualities of introverts because they might not be able to voice them in group discussions.

Talking Change - Activism

Activism

 

A wrong decision isn't forever; it can be reversed. The losses from a delayed decision are forever; they can never be retrieved - JK Galbraith

Across the globe, people are formally and informally building alliances and partnerships to affect social change. The number of NGOs in the world has exploded by 40% in the last few years.  People with a passion for social and environmental good are finding each other, and are coming together in global and local network organisations that signal an important evolution in the way people work - Anon

Across the globe, people are uniting in a common struggle: to participate freely in the events and processes that shape their lives - Mahbub ul Haq,  Human Development Report 2013

What is outer change?

Change

 

Outer change covers those issues that (at least appear to) exist in the external world.

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.

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

 

On Human Nature

Human Nature

 

"There are two great forces of human nature......self-interest and caring for others", according to Bill Gates.

If true, then:

(1) What is the approximate balance between the two today - in individuals, organisations and societies?  How much time do we really spend thinking about and then acting on other people's needs?

(2) How can we start an open and ongoing debate about what the balance should be - next year, in 2030 etc? If we don't do this, then how can individuals really know how to lead a "good" life, can organisations know what their wider responsibilities really are and can societies really know how to develop fair policies for all?
