We are much more than our ego needing to be recognized and appreciated. — Pierre-Boris Kalitventzeff
Over the past week, several conversations and events have come together to compel me to talk about something that I usually don’t talk about so directly and openly.
However, I believe it’s something that people sense and feel in the work that I do, and it’s the belief that we are spiritual beings having a human experience.
Most of us have heard these words from the French philosopher, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, spoken by many people. Oprah Winfrey, Wayne Dyer and Steve Jobs are three people who most immediately come to mind.
While I use the word “belief” above, I can share that it goes beyond belief to the realm of knowing for me personally. But that wasn’t always the case. Almost exactly six years ago to the day, I had an experience that vividly and dramatically changed my perception of reality that brought me to this knowing and ignited this work that I do here.
In my latest interview with Pierre-Boris Kalitventzeff, he also shares his own knowing and how this understanding shows up in his work.
So, what does having this understanding or knowing require from the organization?
Pierre-Boris says —
It requires showing genuine appreciation. It’s not a manager saying, “I’m a manager, so therefore I need to appreciate my employees.” No, it should be genuine. It should be spontaneous. It should come from the heart, and this requires from us to grow as human beings.
And what does it require from the employee?
Pierre-Boris says —
Well, it’s doing what is expected from a whole person who is living her purpose. When you do things from your own energy, you are not expecting anything in return. When we love what we do and when the organization has removed barriers for our self-expression, then we can reach our best performance.
I hope you will be inspired by reading my latest interview with Pierre-Boris Kalitventzeff at One CEO’s Inspiring Adventure in Bringing More Life & Humanity to the Workplace.
To your great work life & success!
