                    "Be the Change that you wish to see in the world”

                                                                 Mahatma Gandhi

A meeting place for "kindred spirits” who have the courage and determination to change things and who are trying to identify formulas to do that with more traction and impact and less “uneasiness”.

This space is created to show "alternative" models, including people and organizations that in different areas and in different ways are part of the solution. They have in common that they are trying to contribute to “changing the world” starting with themselves.

My name is Ana de Andrés, I am an Economist and an Organisational Development Expert and for more than  20 years I have worked at the intersection of leadership and economic and social development at a global level.

 

Soy Ana de Andrés, Economista y experta en Desarrollo Organizacional y desde hace más de 20 años trabajo en la intersección entre el desarrollo directivo y el desarrollo económico y social a nivel global.

What I DO

January 10, 2019

When I look among the "usual suspects", I often find it difficult to find role-models.  Am I the only one who feels this way or is this a trend worth analyzing? Part of this feeling probably comes from the fact that many times, too many lately, the "microphone" seems to be in the hands of people who hardly deserve to be considered as a reference by anyone. On the other hand, these “messy” times force us to find different ways to manage our organizations, our economies and our societies, but most of us are so busy being perplexed that we do not find the time to become a role-model to anyone. It is also true that in these times of "excesses", some who could have played that role have instead joined the ranks of the cynics -if not the scoundrels- and have decided to focus on "individual salva...

Apenas recuperada de la “vuelta al cole”, que este año ha sido cruelmente acelerada… creo que como para casi todos.  Este curso más que nunca siento que los que me rodean están “en efervescencia”. A veces pienso que soy yo, y que es mi propia “agitación” la que “agita” la realidad -o los pedazos de ésta que elijo ver-.    Otras veces pienso que es la única opción para los que hemos decidido conscientemente no mirar hacia otro lado:).  Y después me doy cuenta de que también están “en ebullición”-y de hecho creando estados de paranoia y realidades “paralelas” con terribles consecuencias para todos- los que están intentando controlar lo incontrolable, contener las cosas que “pasan” con la esperanza de que solo les afecten a otros o de que “exploten” cuando ellos ya no estén o incluso volver -...

For the virtuous circle of leadership to be triggered, the discovery and development of a tight connection to purpose is key. Keeping this connection strong gives us superpowers and makes us feel alive and “at home”. Supporting others’ in their own discovery processes is probably our most meaningful contribution and a “mission” necessarily undertaken by those who want to exercise real leadership.

A purpose goes far beyond objectives and does not have their “utilitarian” side, but a quality more similar in nature to the one that a "mission" confers. Being connected to it helps us navigate the storms and get out of the “holes” quickly, and with less “pain” -only if we apply wisdom-.

This "mission", and the choice of devoting our energy, our time and our attention to fulfill it, is a strategic...
