The Adaptive was inspired by the experiences of Paula McCormack over the past 20 years with organisations, leaders and people in general.
Paula found that whilst we all understand the 'concept' of balance, we have little knowledge or awareness of how to truly live it, or what the component parts are to begin to consider achieving it.
Since Paula commenced her lifelong role as a development facilitator 20 years ago the world has undergone yet another stage in its evolution:a period of insight and technological advances that expanded the world and our lives within it...
Then a period of recession taking us back to focus once again on our routes followed by another period of expansion, growth and a burst of technological development again. And then yes you guessed it, another period of recession.
What’s missing from this picture?
Stability... a place of integration... balance
The gift of learning is in the ability to use it. The stages of our evolution demonstrate that we rarely afford ourselves the space to reflect on our learning so that we can put it to best use, so instead we’re forced into such periods… …hence recession.
In recession we are forced to stop, fall back, reflect, rethink, prioritise and dig deep into the inner recesses of ourselves, our communities, businesses and people to pull forth every resource we know we have. More importantly, we pull in resources we didn’t know we possessed because we’ve never taken the time to reflect upon them.
In adversity, it is rare we sink. Conversely we galvanise, re-group, re-think, re-consider, re-flect and then with renewed vigour we take actions that serve the very deepest of our beings. Because in the face of adversity we find who we truly are.
The Adaptive has been developed to enable you, your community, your organisation and your people to effortlessly find that deep inner strength everyday without the need for adversity… now wouldn’t that be awesome?
