Authentic Voice
July 4, 2019

It’s wild, blowy and cold here in County Donegal on the North West corner of Ireland.

Outside the camper van Buzz is snoozing after a walk along some of the most stunning coastal scenery; white sandy beaches, crashing waves and grey, sullen skies.

We’ve been away in our van since the middle of May and our trip has been a time to explore new territory (Wales and Ireland) and also to discuss our our new venture the ‘Inner Compass’. 

The more we discuss our future work, the more excited we are at reaching out to communities and sharing a foundation of wellbeing and resilience. 

Our Brexit-focussed politicians seem so out of touch with community at the moment, but ‘community’ is the direction that we (Liz and Stu) are consistently drawn. We want to remind communities that love, compassion and support is ever-present and at the core of everything and everyone.

We’re not the only ones. There are a growing number of inspired people feeling drawn to make a difference in the world. The South West of England seems to be a hot-house of community projects that are all underpinned with the Inside-Out understanding. 

Our work is not about sharing an intervention, technique or strategy – it is about helping people see what they’ve missed. What have they missed? The bit they’ve missed is who they truly are, their true nature – when people start to glimpse this then everything starts to look different.

Our work with ‘The Inner Compass’ is to encourage everyone who has been impacted by the Inside-Out understanding to play a role in sharing. It might be that you’re a parent connecting with your children, or you might be a leader/coach wanting to support colleagues and clients. One of the most common questions we get asked is ‘how do I share the 3Ps?’

When we talk about ‘sharing’ we don’t mean preaching or teaching, we mean turning up grounded in your own wellbeing and listening for wellbeing in others.

Over the weeks through Facebook, podcasts, interviews and blogs we’re going to meet people. Stu and I are going to also share from our own wealth of experience (working in schools, delivering the Wellbeing Ambassador programme, coaching leaders etc). We want you to share, in whatever way works for you.

We’ve been discussing (on our walks around Ireland) some of the things that make the biggest difference when we talk to clients, leaders, youngsters and organisations.

For us the most important thing is to share from a space of authenticity –  it’s about finding our own individual voices, it’ll be the same for you too.

What is your authentic voice?

What we mean by this is that there are many ways to share the Inside-Out understanding, but one of the key things is to really be in touch with what you see and understand for yourself.

It really can be tempting to share what you’ve heard someone else say, or to try ‘educate’ another person in seeing the 3Ps/Inside-Out understanding.

Stu and I believe that the first step is to find your own voice, to find what lights you up, to share what you see to be true for you. There is real power in being authentic. When you share from a space that is infused with a deep feeling, you will be sharing in the most powerful way of all.
