Few words about my presentation about Photos in Team and Leadership Coaching:

What I want to talk about to a very large group of HR leaders in my country are photos as tools in leadership and team development. Photos as a material for the thinking process, photos as metaphors that help to express what is not easy to express in two or three words, or to express what is important, authentic, and what comes from a very individual reflection in an inspiring and engaging way, photos as communication catalyst among team members, photos used in order to stimulate a deep self-reflection, an open self-expression, group dialogue. I want to talk about how photos produce engagement in the brain, and engagement is necessary for the change to happen. Because a change is possible only when emotions enter into the game. I want to talk about how photos can support true leadership development, not teaching how to manage people, but to lead a reflection that changes the vision of oneself: „Who I am as a leader? What legacy do I want to leave? What change do I want to make in this world, in my company, in my team, in my family, in my life? How do I create a work-life environment where people can feel happy at work, where there is no exclusion,…”

Photos are wonderful in stimulating those thinking and reflection processes. I’ve been working with teams and individual people using photos for a couple of years already. And I feel ready to talk about it loud to a larger audience.

Taking photos helps to regain life energy

Taking photos can be very helpful in depression, anxiety, a decrease of mental and physical energy, stress. I’ve been going out with my camera for years when I didn’t feel well enough, or my mind was anxious. And, I observed how quickly my energy was back each time I went out to take photos. The mind is busy looking at nature or street around while taking photos. It gets cleared from anxiety. The feeling of peace and engagement is regained.

Openning the mind to the ideas -back to childhood, fun, ease, release

“When you have nothing, the imagination works twice. It’s like a muscle. “- Luc Besson. In one of the interviews, Luc Besson, the creator of the Great Blue, Nikita, Leon The Processional, recalled his childhood. He walked around the city and thought up games because he did not have toys. He invented different stories, wandering the streets. This is how the stories were created and the heroes were born. Openness, ease, fun, putting aside both thoughts, one that maybe “I can not”, and second that perhaps “I already know everything”, open the mind to new ideas that lie dormant in our imagination.

Developing creativity

One of the elements of developing creativity is discovering your inner landscapes in the external landscape. The muses, which are our inspiration, live in streams, tufts of grass, among the leaves of trees, on a park bench, on an old woman’s windowsill, just everywhere. They are colors, reflections, light and shadow, sounds, rustles, blasts of wind, movements. When going outside, we go forward with attention and interest, the world unhurriedly reveals its faces to us, and our imagination responds like a mirror – transforms the feather into an angel, leaves into a raft, a pebble in a stranger from distant sides. And suddenly, it turns out that the gray square in the city is enough to enjoy a creative look.

creativity in coaching by dorota raniszewska

Everyone can create

Creative activities undertaken for pleasure, without “must”, “I can”, letting myself be an amateur, are a source of joy. It’s communing with the muse, inspiration, inspiration that we need in everyday life. From my experience, I know that from the very time I look around, listen to, and look, beautiful frames, scenes, and experiences emerge that could not be planned. You can learn to discover beauty.

Flowers stories

The world around is beautiful, nature in harmony. You have to go very close to discover its message, feel the peace it brings. Just stop, crouch. Enter the fairy-tale world, which is woven with light, shadow, reflections, and clearances. Flowers talk about sensitivity, tenderness, love. They are eternally alive. In the spring colorful, firm and fragrant, in winter they become delicate like moths, vibrating in the wind and freezing cold. I can admire them for hours.
