Generous Design

Year-long circle between coaching and Critical Business School. We will use the Principles of Generous Design as a focal point for our exploration and discourse. In hindsight, I realize this manifesto articulated personal philosophy in a time of change (from corporate innovation to coaching).

Each member will produce an artifact embedding a personal philosophy, and practices to support it.

More on the concept of personal philosophy in this image.

January: Interests
Ask yourself what you are interested in at least once a month.

Feb: Answers
Never try and learn answers. Always reflect on how you ask questions.

March: Challenges
When someone challenges you, take it as a compliment. They could have kept their mouth shut. Silence is the biggest offense.

April: Order
Order is overrated, and so are rules. Machines do both best.

May: Learning
Learn to identify moments of discomfort. That is learning.

June: Looking
Look at everything upside down.

July: Dance
Learn to dance with your words and thoughts.

August: Traveling
Be a traveler, not a conqueror.

September: Actions
Don’t think about the cause and effect of actions, focus on the design of environments.

October: Knowing
Love the unknown.

November: Caring
Always Care.

December: Feeling
Listen to Feelings.
