I’m Jamie Smart – welcome to the podcast. In this episode you’re going to be hearing something I’m very happy to share with you. It’s the recording of a conversation I had with Clarity Coach Louise O’Dalaigh at the last ClarityLive event a few months ago. Louise is trained as a nurse and has spent the last 30 years working in the healthcare field. Her current role is as a Quality Improvement Lead for an NHS organisation with over 10,000 staff. So it was a real treat to be able to have one of my ‘fireside chat’ conversations with her and find out the kind of difference the principles understanding is making in her life and in her organisation.
Just before we get to that, a bit of housekeeping. I’m working on the second edition of my book, CLARITY, and I had a realisation. I realised that just as the release of CLARITY planted a seed that grew into everything I’ve been doing for the past 10 years, I now want to create the space for the seeds I’ll be planting with the second edition.
So I’ve made a decision.
Between now and July 2022, I’m stopping all business activities except the delivery of the programmes that are already in the calendar for 2022.
I have the strong sense that there’s something new getting ready to emerge, and I want to create room for it.
This means that the Clarity Certification Training I do starting at the end of this month – January 2022 may be the last one I ever do (or at least the last one I do in its current form).
It seems to me that the world has never had a greater need for this understanding, and that conditions have never been better to share it as widely as possible. In fact, the technologies that are playing a part in creating this crisis may also have the capacity to play a part in its solution.
I don’t know what part I’m going to play in all of this.
What I do know is that I’m interested in exploring emerging technologies and new models to align communities as we take this understanding out into the world in a brand new form.
To the people who have been through (or are preparing to go through) Clarity Certification Training, you’re not just early adopters; you’re trailblazers, and I’m grateful to be on the journey with you.
In Syd Banks’ final talk, “The Ultimate Answer”, he says that when this gets out into the world, “literally, it will help millions of people.”
The more I’ve learned from Syd’s work, the more I’ve learned to take him literally. And I think it might just be time.
So, there are 11 places left on the Clarity Certification Training programme, and I’ve decided to really push the boat out, and added some extra bonuses including the chance to sit in on a live 1:1 coaching intensive. If you want to find out more, just go to www.JamieSmart.com/coach.
So now to the episode.
