and more.

IDKN® has so many facets to it, and what you’ll find will be appropriate to your situations. We found when we worked with IDKN® ourselves, new perspectives and clarity would invariably bubble to the surface. We found this clarity paved the ground work leading toward an ‘inner conviction’ which in turn leads to an ‘authentic confidence’.

IDKN has broad applications.... and implications.

I and my office had the pleasure of working with Geoff Hinsley & Kathleen Curran, Ph.D. through their model: I-Don’t-Know-Ness on issues of communication, productivity and managing burnout. Geoff and Kathleen provide a safe, creative, and warm environment for us to explore these topics and apply the model to real situations that we deal with on daily basis. With I-Don’t-Know-Ness we were not only able to view these challenges through a new lens, but we were able to start working our way out of the mud

I was fortunate to be connected to Geoff by GWC and he gave me a great insight in the IDKN model. Dealing with my own issues, I learned to be comfortable in the not knowing. Being in the mud, take a pause became fun and the positive effects on my mindset are a gift. In Dutch we have no distinction between the word reaction and response, so the model also gave me language to explain better. I was happy to join one of the first sandboxes with Kathleen and Geoff. Great experience and an invitation to practice more!

The Power of the Pause

The Power of the Pause Hal gregersen (@HalGregersen) recently tweeted:  “When leading on the edge of uncertainty, as we are in 2021, questions really are the answer. Why? Because preset answers don’t exist in a world of unknowns. In such times, our leadership work must converge on crafting new questions to create new answers”.
