In this episode of Le Podcast, John Poelstra and I had a conversation about the book The Anatomy of Peace.
John recommended the book in our previous conversation on how (not) to provide feedback. I read it twice and fell in love with it. John mentioned that in Changing Your Team From The Inside, I said that Change starts with you, it seems The Anatomy of Peace pushes it further: change starts with who you are.
The highlights of the conversations:
- When your heart is at peace or your heart is at war,
- When people are doing the right thing, a good opportunity for positive reinforcement,
- Our body gives us signals to listen to when our heart is at war,
- What about those times when we consider people as objects, obstacles, or considering them as people, other human beings,
- The idea of being stuck in a box (I deserve, better than, the need to be seen as, the worse than) and how it could map with the responsibility process of Christopher Avery,
- We have the choice to honor or betray our senses and desires,
- The idea of judging others and judging ourselves,
- The practice of Hoʻoponopono,
- The connection with the practice of meditation.
