So what happened on last week’s show? Lian was with Mara Gleason. Mara is a firm believer that a new understanding of the mind is the next great frontier for humanity. We spoke about Mara’s experience of how she went from being scared of her father to witnessing a transformation in him. And how that went on to inspire her work in global change.
If you missed that then you missed out so… subscribe to the show and catch up with that episode after this show!
And this week’s show is with Mahima Shrestha. With a background in media and crisis communications, Mahima is interested in bringing people together to find solutions to complex problems and facilitating long-term change in culture and communities. Over the years she has worked with government, multilateral, private and non-profit organisations in a wide range of sectors including aviation, hydropower, tourism, investment climate reform, automobiles, finance, education, telecommunications and healthcare.
The Three Principles understanding has been pivotal in her work with leaders and has shaped the development of a leadership curriculum for young women working to find better solutions to the most pressing problems in the South Asian region. She is co-founder of MOP Communications, an organization that specializes in crisis communication and risk management training.
In this show we spoke about Mahima’s experience of the devastating earthquake in her home country of Nepal and from that experience what she’s seen about the way humans work – and how it applies everywhere in in life, and particularly in social change.
I’d love to know what YOU think about this week’s show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- If it works this way during an earthquake then it always work this way! We can feel anything no matter what’s going on out there!
- Systems are made up of hearts and minds of people – and they can change just we can.
- Stop being so adversarial – recognise your own part in a system, a relationship or a conversation, that you are fixed on your belief of ‘rightness’ and how that’s playing a part in the situation.
