Living A Life Of Fierce Questions To Create Fierce Change with Mac Macartney- 015
6 days ago
Just how important is it to ask fierce questions of yourself in life, even if you don't yet know the answers? In many ways, a life can be shaped just as much by asking the question as by having it answered. Moving ourselves to that internal conversational frontier where we call out into the unknown, places us in a position of vulnerability and receptivity to whatever beautiful calling may come back. To go to the deepest depths of ourselves, we can think of at least three questions for our lives: What is it that you most deeply and profoundly love? What are your deepest and most profound gifts? What are your deepest and most profound responsibilities? These are the questions that Mac Macartney poses to himself and to all those he coaches in reaching their greatest potential and deepest connection with themselves and the world around them. Having sailed into tricky seas earlier in life, Mac had a wake up call to return to nature, retrain as a gardener and then later take on the mantle of executive coaching where he co-founded two development consultancies. He subsequently heard the call to go deep into what it means to be human and went in search of the First Nations people of the United States where he spent two years embedded in their culture, challenging every assumption and belief he had about himself. After a series of remarkable experiences with these indigenous people, he left to found Embercombe, a social enterprise that teaches people to become responsible leaders and change-makers in the world. Since then he has a well known and sought after speaker on all topics from sustainable leadership to climate change advocacy and works with clients as diverse and Danone to Harvard Business School, helping them to move towards sustainable and ethical business behaviour. Listening to him speak is a thunderous and inspiring invitation to wake up to your potential to take action in the world. I caught up with Mac to talk about the importance of fierce questions to effect incredible and life-affirming change.
