As a society, we expect everyone else to do the inspiring. How often do we hear people complain about “wanting to be inspired” or “needing to get inspired?” Collectively, we walk through life with our heads down waiting for Inspiration to happen to us instead of making Inspiration happen for us. To break out of this funk, to spur growth, we need to develop a new approach to our lives and our businesses that can reignite the spark of Inspiration. Read More >
That approach is called the Museum Mentality. Inspiration happens in one of three ways: by Delight, by Design, by Demand. Museums understand this implicitly (in some cases, explicitly). So much so that the principles are woven into their DNA. Museums understand the power of surprise and discovery (Delight). They deliberately structure their environment to increase our chances of being inspired by what hangs in the next room or around the next corner (Design). They recognize the concentrated force of curation and the need to preserve great works and meaningful moments (Demand). When they do it well, there is no better teacher. In this session, we will harness the power of a museum mentality applied to your corporate world. Read Less ^
