Research shows that we over estimate how quickly we can do tasks.

It also tells us that our brain can indeed only focus on one thing at a time. Yet, how many of us go about our day, even our week without fully grasping the gravity of these two statements?

Everyday conversation includes chatter about how busy we are. But the deeper question in my mind is this: Is it really our goal to be busy or would it feel better to simply know that we are being productive?

SoulSalt developed a course that will help you do just that! How can a course help you be more productive?

You’ve been there, at least once in your life and very likely quite often. Activities that get you there – to the experience of ONENESS, to the feeling of FLOW, as psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi coined it, are “truly rewarding experiences that require concentrated involvement and interaction with complex information”.

The things that give people ‘natural highs’ – playing music, a close game of tennis, an intense and meaningful conversation with a friend, a job well done – all require that we pay attention, that we look, listen, and act with care and skill.”

It is these unified activities of FLOW that draw you out of your inherent pre-occupation with self – the state that keeps you feeling small, self-conscious, self-censoring and stuck. It is these special activities that compel your attention and invite you to reach beyond your self-imposed limitations that enable you to bring the best of yourself to the present moment.

Do you know what compels your attention?

Diversity and Inclusion are “key functions” in most large corporates today, but not necessarily because the C-suite feels it is really crucial, either strategically or morally.

Rather, there is a legal obligation, in most cases, to fill quotas of hiring a range of non-traditional employees, and, at the risk of fines or worse if they do not conform, the companies go ahead and make attempts to recruit, typically, the barest minimum of these groups, whether they be disabled, older, of another sexual orientation, gender or whatever, compared to the company’s norms.

While this approach allows organisations to obey the law, and gives some opportunity of jobs to the “minorities”, it does nothing to further their cause or the socio/professional progress. This has been known for a long time, but it does no harm to repeat it, as it is an aspect of business today that is still very far indeed from being optimal.

What so many organisations fail to understand is the success and competitiveness benefits that employing a diverse range of people may confer.

Like so many tools and techniques in coaching, the diversity awareness ladder comes from the world of mentoring. Now widely used in diversity training, the ladder was created in the mid-1990s to support large scale diversity management programmes in the UK National Health Service and other, mainly public sector organisations, including the police.

The principle behind the diversity awareness ladder is that, even we avoid talking to someone we see as different, there is still an internal conversation taking place, mostly unconsciously. To give a personal example, quite a few years ago, I was at an HR conference, with a large exhibition attached to it. In a prominent place within the exhibition was a stand for a publisher for the LGTB community.

I made a mental note to talk to them about a mentoring project I had learned about in the US, involving professional people, who were also gay. I had walked through the hall several times before I realised I was about to do so again without stopping at this stand – indeed, I had unconsciously chosen routes that would not bring me immediately past it.

Here's what happened then.
