Summary: A growing number of research scientists are persuaded that universe is not made of separate things but on a deep level is a single entity. This view is called holographic paradigm. The author takes a page from this unique point of view by asserting that success of a leadership tool he has been teaching for 21 years is attributed to fact that it is indeed a hologram.
The Leadership Talk As A Living Hologram by Brent Filson
The hologram is a three-dimensional photograph made on a flat surface with laser beams.
The three-dimensionality of such an image is not only remarkable characteristic of a hologram. If a hologram of your face is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will still contain entire image of your face.
Indeed, even if halves are divided again, each snippet of film will always be found to contain a smaller but intact version of original image of your face. If we try to take apart something constructed holographically, we will not get pieces of which it is made, we will only get smaller wholes.
To some scientific researchers, hologram is basis for a striking view of reality -- that entire universe is a superhologram. Everything from grains of sand beneath our feet to farthest star in outermost regions of deep space, everything is interconnected as one.
This view has come to be called holographic paradigm, and though it is supported by findings of quantum physics and corroborates insights of ancient Rabbis of Kabbala, Buddha, Lao Tsu, Plato, Veda mystics, and many more prophets and spiritual traditions, many scientists have greeted it with skepticism.
Still, a small but growing group of researchers believe it may be most accurate model of reality science has arrived at thus far.
If holographic paradigm is true, then each of us — including your best friend and your worst enemy — are all connected on a deeper level of reality. Consequently, our individual actions affect others, everywhere. The state of world, state of universe for that matter, is merely sum total of interactions of humanity.
Let's bring holographic paradigm into our ordinary lives, our ordinary day-to-day jobs. Because if it doesn't work in our daily lives, it's nothing more than an interesting idea. In fact, it's in very ordinariness of our moment-to-moment experiences that holographic paradigm finds its true manifestation.
That manifestation creates an entirely new way of understanding leadership and organizational success; for a key leadership tool that I've been teaching for many years is indeed a hologram. Not static photo-image hologram but a living hologram of great complexity and energy.
That tool is Leadership Talk.
There is a hierarchy of verbal persuasion, lowest levels of which are speeches and presentations, highest and most effective level is Leadership Talk. Speeches and presentations communication information, but Leadership Talks do something much more, they help leader establish deep, human emotional interactions with audience -- so vital in motivating people to get results.
