curated talks & inspiration sessions
why we need inspired thinking ?
Businesses are simply a collection of human beings & this year those humans are a little tired, lost, in need of a spark of joy & inspiration.
A different perspective is often all we need to understand who we are, focus on the good, elevate our mood and bring us to new creative solutions.
Think Human Being has teamed up with our friends in the storytelling business, Once Upon Mind, to offer an Inspired Thinking Collection of Curated Talks & Inspiration Sessions designed to bring perspective and shine a light on a way forward, to help both leaders and employees recover individual self confidence, a little bit of joy and collective hope - inspired by the human condition.

The stories we tell ourselves
The stories we hear and tell become the screenplay of our lives. Join me for a romantic comedy/psychological thriller about thoughts, feelings, the subsequent self-sabotaging human behaviour that prevents us from being our very best selves and how to change your story.
The time will come when, with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other's welcome, and say, sit here. Eat.You will love again the stranger who was your self ~ Love after Love - Derek Walcott
What's the Story with Relationships? Connection, communication and other messy human neccesities.
At home or at work, wherever you go you bump into humans. Let's unpack the stories behind our frustrations, misunderstandings, failed connections and recurring confusions in our quest to understand and be understood.
That, ultimately, is the whole point of language, isn’t it? To lessen the crushing burden of existence by creating a tiny bridge between us. I make some sounds, and you feel seen and understood and less lonely. ~Son of Elsewhere:― Elamin Abdelmahmoud
A funny, hard look at the working/not working but working/working too much or not enough/working to raise decent human beings curse called Mothers’ Guilt and how to change that narrative for good.
(24/7) once you sign on to be a mother, that's the only shift they offer ~ My Sister's Keeper - Jodi Picoult
Once Upon a Child - the stories we tell our children.
We tell our children what we think of them, what they should think about themselves, what they should expect of life, how they should view the world and treat other human beings. And they believe us. Maybe it is time to start with the ending and story our way back to where we are now, so that we can tell them the truth.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. Oh, the Places You’ll Go - Dr. Seuss
