I have joined the masses delighting in the Game of Thrones.
There are many reasons why it is so popular; the fantasy element being an obvious one. It seems in this period of crisis, we are increasingly interested in fantasy genre, perhaps because we consciously or subconsciously, are drawn to mythology and folklore to help us make sense of our own reality in challenging times.
Fantasy. It entices us to liberate our minds.
What is your fantasy?
Such a question conjures up sexual or romantic connotations, and indeed when asked in the bedroom (or thereabouts) is guaranteed to create some transformation in a relationship.
And it is a question which can be taken to the boardroom (or thereabouts) to also create transformation.
It can urge us to be visionary in deciding our path and developing our products and services. It can help us as leaders, coaches and coachees to stretch beyond our own self imposed limitations.
For it is provocative and intriguing. It persuades us to release the shackles of our confines, let go of our inhibitions and venture out of our comfort zones. It encourages us to tap into another, perhaps hidden side of ourselves. It taunts us to explore our darkness and our lightness and teases us to be playful and imaginative. It moves us to retain the magic and mystery in our lives.
When we ask it, we do so knowing the risks involved and offer our trust and good intent.
From such a place, we can be taken to a new place, a different world, a different way of inquiring, interacting and innovating.
