inspiration (n.) inspiration (n.) c. 1300, "immediate influence of God or a god," especially that under which the holy books were written, from Old French inspiracion "inhaling, breathing in; inspiration" (13c.), from Late Latin inspirationem (nominative inspiratio), noun of action from past participle stem of Latin inspirare "blow into, breathe upon," figuratively "inspire, excite, inflame," from in- "in" (from PIE root *en "in") + spirare "to breathe" (see spirit (n.)).
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. [Genesis ii.7]
As a leader you do not just want to be heard, above all you want to influence your different audiences to change their opinions, their vision of work (or the world) and join your project. In order to do so, it would be best for you to be inspired first. Even if you remember well how you felt when the muses last visited you, you probably would not know how to summon them when you need them next.
For it seems inspiration is a capricious mystery that is given, or is not given. Or is it?
Artists such as Picasso, David Lynch and Nabokov observed when and how they worked best. They learned what conditions, activities and attitudes led to the creation of their best work.
I've spent a lifetime studying the great masters to decipher their secrets. Today I share them in these 3 formats:
Disruptive conversations to find your muses
In a relaxed environment we explore what inspires you, we find the triggers of your creativity and the mechanisms of disconnection. You will learn to handle them in your favor.
Creative Strategy sessions
When you feel stuck in your project and ideas no longer want to flow, I propose a creative session to develop your strategy. We can also design the ideal way to share it with your superiors and your team.
