You can tell about yourself through photographs of trees.

In October I am on a morning walk in the park every day. I take pictures of trees. The tree gives a sense of rest and security. It inspires me. It symbolizes life, strength, persistence and family. And the silhouettes of trees are like people. They express emotions. This leaning ‘feels’ differently than the soaring, which reaches the sky. Old massive oak raises other sensations and snow-white, slender birch the other. You can tell about yourself through photographs of trees. Man is like a tree, ingrown to the ground and crowned towards the sky. The more grounded it is, the higher it grows. I need roots – values to make the right decisions. I need a trunk – a fracture proof spine. And the entire network of relationships – the branches by which it exists. We are a combination of everything we receive from others and give to others.

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.
