Open Heart Surgery…

“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others” Pericles

Overview:

Open Heart Surgery is not your average business speaker session.

Paul Pinson has a background in large-scale, pioneering, and innovative theatre. With this in mind it’s maybe no surprise that Open Heart Surgery is truly immersive and interactive – focused on harnessing the power of your own story to help connect you with your beating heart, uncover your truths and see how you can shine brightest as a leader.

Paul believes the best leaders:

  • Lead with their hearts, not just their minds
  • Are self-aware and genuine
  • Ask different questions
  • Focus on the long-term
  • Live and work on purpose
  • Focus on results not activities

We know the strongest, most powerful relationships and connections in our lives involve our hearts. Where’s your heart as a leader? Does it get a look in?

Through a series of powerful exercises, profound questions, music and film, you will experience a journey towards understanding what your personal power looks like - a power that enables you to reach your vision and inspire people to walk alongside you towards it.

This is about the experience as much as the content.

This is not:

  • Sitting down and being told what you should do
  • An opportunity to be fire-hosed with information
  • A ‘take it or leave it’ experience

Rather this is about you and what you will learn about yourself.

Maybe you’ll see yourself differently?

Maybe you’ll start to see your power, gain clarity on your purpose?

Maybe you’ll start to see what you have to do to let your light shine fully?

The end result?

It’s up to you!
