Quotes from this episode:

"The idea that you can achieve expert status in a classroom and then step into the market is silly. I think the dichotomy of working and learning will continue to blur." - Isaac Morehouse


"We believe (at Praxis) that all ideas are networked, so personal transformation leads to organizational transformation." - Isaac Morehouse


"Personal mastery is a little different than being a subject matter expert in one thing. It’s a network of skills, passions and ideas." - Isaac Morehouse

Episode 004 Complexity & "Flow"

In states of "flow," inspiration and ease come effortlessly and a person does things for the sheer joy of doing them. Flow states allow us to more easily perceive networks of relationships between the elements of our selves and our environment, to handle complexity with grace and ease. What happens in these states? In this episode we explore the idea of the autotelic personality - someone who is more often than not curious, internally motivated, productive and operating with a sense of flow. What would the autotelic workplace look like? What would life be like if we spent more time in flow?

Quotes from this episode:

"Mihaly Csiksentmihalyi one of the authors we follow, talks about autotelic personality, which is a person who has the ability to remain in the flow state for extended periods of time and operate mostly from that." - Stacy Hale

"I think that flow states are the key to living within complexity and maintaining an awareness of it, because it exists naturally in so many situations." - Stacy Hale
