Drawing out thoughts and emotions

Drawing out thoughts and emotions
  In my exploration of what some people called ‘Depth Psychology’, I have been receiving psycho-analysis in recent months.    There are a lot of angles for me to reflect on the experience e.g. feeling and sensation, mid-life, family.   In this post, let me take the perspective of facilitation and coaching. We had very deep conversation ...

Individuation, Abstract Art and Corporate Learning (Part 2)

Individuation, Abstract Art and Corporate Learning (Part 2)
The question I raised in my last post is ‘What is the implication of the individuation concept to corporate learning?’ The individuation is the ultimate developmental work (psychologically).   Ideally, a more self-harmonious and self-aware individual would contribute better to the workplace. My first thought to the question is that most corporates would not really care.   ...

Individuation, Abstract Art and Corporate Learning (Part 1)
This post is related to my recent exposure to Jungian psychology and in fact the last post on Abstract Art.

French and Leadership - The limitation of traditional classroom training
Some thoughts came to my mind when I was attending my French class earlier this week.  (Yes, apparently, I was not an attentive student to French!!) During the class, the teacher played some recording.   We listened and tried to understand.   He corrected our mistakes and then also introduced some grammar points.  We then practiced some ...

What story would you like to tell?

What story would you like to tell?
  Many years ago, I was facing some difficult career choices.   As a coachee, I was asked a question which I found very powerful.   My first kid was a few months ago at that time, and the question was like ‘The best way to raise the kids is to role model.   How would you choose ...

What is really Reflection? (Cont’d)

What is really Reflection?  (Cont'd)
