|Your Name||Kate Bennett|
|Cohort Assignment||Cohort D (Australia)|
|1. What do you see as your primary work at this stage of your life?|
I'm adopting more of a portfolio work approach at this stage - from individual coaching and hypno/regression therapy to corporate advisory, academic research to experimental projects in Web3, collaborative projects in impact investment to individual creative projects, I don't have "primary" work at this stage of my life. I have a broad field of play and exploration.
|2. What role do you see as yours to play?|
I see my role as being one of a bridge between cultures and mindsets, be they geographic, linguistic, disciplinary or sectoral. I tend to be able to see things from different perspectives, and to support diverse groups to find common ground in discussions by meeting each party at their level and engaging in language that makes sense to them. A translator of sorts - going beyond merely language and the spoken word to meaning and the unspoken beliefs that inform positions and perspectives. I have always "spread myself too thin" and been a "generalist" rather than a "specialist" - while this reduced performance by typical "success measures" (prizes, promotions, higher salaries etc.) it has enabled me to see and experience more than most, and to gain an appreciation for all that is, rather than just the sliver of what I know/master. In an increasingly specialised, silo'd and polarized world... we will need more generalists, more bridges. That is a critical role, and one I feel I am destined to play... not to mention one I would greatly enjoy! 🙂
|3. What goals or aims do you have in regard to the above?|
I would like to truly master the skill of holding space objectively and facilitating interactions which enable people to speak their truth and have that truth acknowledged and incorporated into meaningful dialogue and collaborative co-creation of new systems and approaches.
|6. What have you invested in to get you where you are?|
I have invested in extensive training and education in languages (BIntSt), sustainable development (MIA), business administration (MBA), corporate governance (GAICD) hypnotherapy, rapid transformational therapy, past life regression and life between lives therapy, KaHuna massage, Huna Healing Principles, energy and light work, digital business models (knowledge brokers, digital CEO, membership communities), PhD research scholarship, regenerative entrepreneurship certificate (UCI), regenerative economics program (Capital Institute), holistic management course (Savory Institute)....
|4. Where do you feel your next arenas for personal growth are?|
I am slowly healing and regenerating after a series of traumatic events in recent years which completely transformed the way I show up in the world. My next arenas for personal growth are to recover my self-confidence, my resilience, and my comfortability with being visible. I have been living from a place of fear for the past few years and am slowly regaining coherence with heart to be able to once again live a life that I'm passionate about and energized by in the service of others. Reconnecting more powerfully with my higher self, and learning to more regularly and effectively channel source energy from the spirit realms (as woo-woo as that may sound) are where I feel my next arenas are for personal growth.
|7. What fields of learning and which thinkers have been important in your life?|
I think all fields of learning have been important in my life. I studied the IB at school so from an early age was exposed to international cultures, languages, history and literature. My high school studies in Latin American music and literature exposed me to magical realism, the interplay of complex rhythms and the resource curse,.. all of which have influenced the course of my life in powerful ways.
|5. And for professional growth?|
In terms of professional growth, I believe that once I've mastered coherence and a more effective personal (spiritual and energetic) practice, the professional piece will take care of itself. I have been moved by Buckminster Fuller's approach to life, which was focused more on living a life in service to others than living a life in pursuit of a career or any other material benefit (title, financial or other). I have often been chastised and told off for putting service to others ahead of my own financial interests, however anything other than that feels unnatural for me. And so, while protecting myself and ensuring that I am filling my own cup energetically/spiritually in order to best serve others, any future professional growth will be the result of decisions made to fill my heart in service of others, rather than in the pursuit of a particular professional ambition. (That path brought very little happiness/fufilment - despite reaching my desired destination!)
|8. Can you frame your philosophy or cosmology of life? What role(s) do humans play in it?|
My philosophy of life is that the world is exactly what we think it is. If we want the external world to be different, our internal world needs to change dramatically. And that starts with one individual, includes shifts in the collective consciousness, and expands into all that is through the energetic vibrations and footprints of our ancestors and soul journeys past, present and future.
