Bettina von Stamm is going to talk about adopting a mindset of embracing paradoxes.
Why we need to learn to embrace paradoxes
Guest Speaker: Bettina von Stamm
Bettina von Stamm is going to talk about a mindset of embracing paradoxes and identifies some of the key paradoxes that need embracing.
Paradox - a situation or statement that seems impossible or is difficult to understand because it contains two opposite facts or characteristics. No doubt, we live in challenging times. Times of an unprecedented rate of change and degrees of uncertainty never experienced before. Not to mention the equally unprecedented challenges to humanity and our planet. Einstein's wisdom has it that we cannot solve a problem with the mindset that has created it. The prevailing mindset seems to be one that seeks the one right answer, and is inclined to think in 'black and white'. With such a mindset we will never be able to address the current, and urgent, challenges. What might a different mindset look and feel like? This session explores a mindset of embracing paradoxes and identifies some of the key paradoxes that need embracing.
