What happens when you take a world record and add IT ? You get a new way of looking at limits and the role people play.
In a world that is changing quickly, agility and Agile have become key words, but have we as players in this world changed ? Are we still living in a world of ‘following’ or are we activating our inner leader and shining ?
You don’t have to be borne a leader. I know this because I wasn’t borne to become the Deepest Woman in the World, I had to learn how and that started with changing the assessments I had about the world and how I fitted into it. I stopped doing what felt right for me and started to do the things that a world record holder would find easy. I started to think and act greater than who I thought I was! I chose to react differently to the world around me.
Which is what this site is all about – finding new ways of showing up, shifting cultures out of unilateral being into autonomous, agile, creative being and showing people new ways that they can own their ‘shine’

A New Way of Using Information – Distributed Intelligence
“Could the next leap in evolution arise out of a shift in identification, in which we shed the story of battling for supremacy and move instead to playing our role as part of the larger team of life on Earth? Could the creativity and survival instinct of humanity as a whole, or even of life […]
Being an Empath in a Rational, Corporate World [Soul Seeking]
I bumped into another empath at work to day. Neither one of us knew quite what to do. It was kinda embarrassing. After all, the last thing you admit to in a large, rationally minded corporate is being an empath. When you are in the professional world you work on concrete evidence, not emotions. But […]
Escaping from Life’s Dead End (Soul Seeking)
“Do you think he will make it ?” I looked over at my fellow game designer, “Perhaps.” Then again, we didn’t have a good exit rate for this particular challenge. Not that we had been intended it to be this hard – it was supposed to be a final check for players on their way […]
Can We Really Change Corporates – Rethinking Ambition
One of the things I fundamentally hold to be both true (and so possible) is that we can shift corporate culture.
