We imagine we think freely, but we don’t.⏤Dianne Collins, Author, Do You Quantum Think?
When I first got involved with corporate transformation back in the 1980s, I learned that many projects were failing because we have a leadership problem.
In fact, the leadership in my company sent me off to attend a workshop led by one of the world’s leading consultants.
That’s when I learned we have a leadership problem. At least that’s what they told me. It was now my job to go back and tell my leadership they were the problem!
I didn’t see it that way, but I did my best to convey the message and apply other lessons I had learned.
Advance the calendar to today, and how can it be that despite the enormous attention and focus on leadership over the past three decades that most people are still waiting for leadership to show up?
Along the way, I realized that what we’re focused on isn’t working out very well.
Even a novel idea or the most brilliant plan is likely to get swept into the powerful force of the existing system.⏤Dianne Collins in do you quantumthink?
Then in 2009 my frustration boiled over.
There had to be a better way, so I channeled my frustration into an intention and asked new questions.
In her book, Do You Quantum Think, author Dianne Collins says –
Asking yourself deeper questions opens up new ways of being in the world. It brings in a breath of fresh air. It makes life more joyful. The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery.⏤Dianne Collins
Little did I know what my intention and new questions would set in motion.
The unexpected just happened and my world changed.
I was in awe at what it set in motion and frankly struggled to understand it all.
Then in 2012 I discovered the book Do You Quantum Think by Dianne Collins.
Dianne’s book gave me understanding and helped me move more fully into my intention and work.
I was so enthralled with what I learned that I had to talk to her. An email resulted in a fascinating phone call and conversation.
Dianne and I kept in touch, so when I started the Exploring Forward Thinking Workplaces interview series, she graciously and enthusiastically agreed to take part.
I’m pleased to introduce you to Dianne Collins and my latest interview with her, which is now included in The Future of the Workplace from Apress.
