We are committed to developing YOUR VISION, in the sense of William James. By our ‘visions’ James means our ‘modes of feeling the whole push, and seeing the whole drift of life and, on the whole, our preferred best working attitudes’.
Vision is what James considered “the great fact about a person”: it is our defining feature, it is where we operate from. This great fact about each of us relates to how we make meaning – especially How We Think – and how we relate to others.
We are Our Preferred Best Working Attitudes
Are we as good as we would wish and can be?
The Keynes Centre provides the space to open up thinking in a way that creatively challenges and supports engaging in mind development. We are not about telling you what to think.
We are dedicated to working with you on developing your vision.
Developing peoples’ preferred best working attitudes is also the pre-requisite for organisational development. This is more important for long-term prosperity than adding to skills, techniques and information – which are important and necessary at particular times, but these can be implemented relatively easily. Growing minds, however, is much harder to achieve and not usually attempted. Yet the consequences of ignoring it can be fatal to an organisation’s survival.
CEOs, Senior Managers and Directors who grow themselves will be better positioned to grow their staff and develop, their organisations. When these leaders are seen to be growing their own minds, there is the power of example for staff and colleagues. This is why The Keynes Centre offers particular programmes for CEOs, Senior Managers and Directors, as well as aspiring CEOs, Senior Managers and Directors, who want to lead development.
Exploring How We Think, How We Understand, How We Feel, and How We Relate to Others, provides experiences to raise awareness and understanding of what life-long adult mind development means and of how it can be intentionally undertaken.
This is the basis for the personal insights of Transformative Thinking – the change, the growth in minds, which is the focus of our distinctive and effective approach.
