Business

Articles and courses specifically focused on business issues and dynamics, particularly in the areas of:

  • Intuition, Creativity and Innovation
  • Sales, Project Management
  • 'Begin with the end in play' success-factors, methodologies and principles
  • 'Psycho-social eco-systems' that support business development
  • Leadership
  • Adaptive Systems Thinking
  • Timeless Management Principles

As with all Belief Institute content and services, there is a focus on results - on effective reality-creation. We subscribe to the view that individually and collectively we "create our circumstances." Hence the provision of Institute programs such as "Intelligent Co-Design," in which it is understood that we intimately and directly contribute to, and are responsible for the company, community and world we experience.

Creativity, Intuition and Quantum Mechanics

Creativity, Intuition and Quantum Mechanics (CIQM) is a short (20-30min) presentation given to business groups. It contains key concepts and materials provided in the Begin with the End In Play® program.

The presentation introduces the key principles of quantum theory, and how those principles relate to, and provide a basis for, intuition and creativity.

It reveals how and why we are severely limited by old-paradigm (reductionist) thinking dating back to Isaac Newton. Old-paradigm thinking is still the basis for the vast bulk of contemporary scientific, medical and business management attitudes and beliefs.

Quantum mechanics has revealed the potential for creativity and intuition spreads beyond whatever is reducible to logic, reason and fact: surprises and original ideas are available to those who learn the processes by which to expect and receive them.

Profitable Sustainability

"Sustainability" is one of those loaded terms that is usually taken to mean "living smaller" - of having to ride bicycles to work, reducing our lifestyle, and cutting back on overseas travel ... which all means less choice, freedom and fun!

The expectation that sustainable business practices will reduce profitability is likewise often assumed. Not much fun in that.

Sustainable Living

[ Copyright Dr Werner Sattmann-Frese 2009]

Notions of ‘Sustainable Living’ have recently been considered in relation to topics such as clean air and water, Permaculture and solar panels.

Whereas such environmental initiatives and government programs are important and will continue to play important roles in the ecological recovery of this planet, there is now also a growing awareness that to live sustainably we will also have to address the emotional and psychosocial aspects of sustainability.

The participation and well-being of individuals within all stratas of society are important to the viability of sustainable living programs and practices.

There is no script

[Copyright Belief Institute, Sydney 2008]

Personnel departments and consultancies almost invariably attempt to categorize and define people according to certain personality traits which are then matched to the requirements of a particular position. To some extent, definition of skills, competencies and character is important for effective placement of people. But present attempts to write more effective computer programs or questionnaires to help determine character are misguided.

Why managers need management training!

[ Copyright Steven Lesser 2008 ]

A presumptive title, for which I hope you will excuse me.

Most people in the role of Executive, Manager or Consultant, be it for a large company, own business, or other services, bring specific skills and qualities to their work. In many cases those same people are required to manage people, in an office, on a site, around the world. So, how do we keep our management skills up-to-date? When was the last time you attended management training?
