Hey all,

Mark here. Here’s what we have in store for this week…


Curiosity and Play 

“It is requisite for the relaxation of the mind that we make use, from time to time, of playful deeds and jokes”. Thomas Aquinas

Developing curiosity and playfulness with your team can significantly enhance team dynamics, innovation, and workplace satisfaction. Embracing curiosity involves asking open-ended questions, encouraging deeper thinking, and showing team members their input is valued.
Cultivating playfulness also has profound benefits. Incorporating humor can lighten the mood and reduce stress, making the workplace more enjoyable and fostering stronger relationships. You can model playfulness by showing that it is okay to be spontaneous and light-hearted, creating a more vibrant and innovative work environment.
When the team feels free to experiment and take risks, they are more likely to come up with fresh ideas and solutions. Playfulness also helps create a positive work culture where individuals feel comfortable expressing themselves and collaborating. By integrating curiosity and playfulness into your leadership style, you can create a dynamic, positive workplace that encourages growth, innovation, and collaboration.

Dr. Bayo Akomolafe, a philosopher, writer, activist, and professor of psychology, is renowned for his work in post-humanism and decolonization. Raised in Nigeria, his academic journey led him to challenge Western paradigms and explore alternative worldviews. As Executive Director of the Emergence Network, he fosters dialogue and alternative ways of being. Akomolafe’s internationally acclaimed books, like ‘These Wilds Beyond Our Fences’, delve into social justice and spirituality. His thought-provoking perspectives have earned him a reputation as a visionary leader. As a globally recognized speaker, author, and consultant, Dr. Akomolafe has significantly contributed to post-humanism, decolonization, and the deconstruction of dominant narratives. He advocates for reshaping human agency and accountability beyond conventional boundaries. Akomolafe’s commitment to empowering others to question the status quo reflects his dedication to change and innovation.

Podcast Highlights:

On this week’s podcast, my guest, Dr. Bayo Akomolafe, shared his passion and expertise on Post-Humanism. The discussion revealed intriguing insights into challenging conventional narratives and how individuals may want to examine deep-held perspectives. My favorite part of the interview was when Dr. Akomolafe shared his perspective of looking to the cracks as opportunities: “Cracks” are disturbances or disruptions in our conventional ways of thinking and being. These cracks serve as openings for new ideas, dialogues, and ways of engaging with the world to emerge.

In the SEAL teams, we operated with an attitude of “slow is smooth, smooth is fast,” allowing us to be calm and effective even in the most dangerous environments. This mantra highlights the power of deliberate practice and repetition. Each time we train a deliberate movement and refine our skill, if it is done well and with precision, it helps us master our actions. I find inspiration by slowing down some of my daily tasks and honing my attention to the present moment.

Bear Crawl for Strength and Focus: Dedicate three minutes daily to the bear crawl for an impactful strength-building and focus-enhancing routine. Begin with a one-minute warm-up, then set your three-minute timer and commit. Get into a tabletop position, lift your knees slightly, and start crawling forward, focusing on maintaining proper form and controlled movements. Pay attention to your breath, inhaling deeply through the nose and exhaling fully through the mouth to stay centered. As you crawl, engage your core and challenge yourself to maintain consistency and intensity. After the crawl, cool down briefly with gentle stretches targeting the muscles involved. Reflect on your progress and set goals for future sessions. Consistent practice will yield improvements in both strength and focus over time.
