The reason behind...

The Phoenix bird represents rebirth, the ultimate change. Breaking free, claiming its own power, the Phoenix is the sign of a new beginning.

Society constantly writes scripts for all its members, assigning roles, projecting images, defining and assigning value and identity to every individual.

Culture, group dynamics, politics, old patterns, habits, self limiting beliefs, a challenging environment… are each wielding a pen and attempting to write your story, day by day.

The rebellion against the thought of life as an act of endless compliance became the ashes from which SCRIPT was born.

As a stance against endless repetition, as a righteous claim for empowerment, as an answer to the need of a fair mirror and an outside view to give perspective, as a toolbox, as a network… as a challenging and supportive sparring partner on your way to success.

Change is not easy… but it can be a great ride!

Recognize both the value of spontaneous opportunities, and careful planning

The early bird might get the worm,
but the second mouse gets the cheese...

Poem "For a Leader"

For a Leader

May you have the grace and wisdom
To act kindly, learning
To distinguish between what is
Personal and what is not.

May you be hospitable to criticism.

May you never put yourself at the center of things.

May you act not from arrogance but out of service.

May you work on yourself
Building up and refining the ways of your mind.

May you learn to cultivate the art of presence
In order to engage with those who meet you.

When someone fails or disappoints you
May the graciousness with which you engage
Be their stairway to renewal and refinement.

May you treasure the gifts of the mind
Through reading and creative thinking
So that you continue to be a servant of the frontier
Where the new will draw its enrichment from the old,
And you never become a functionary.

May you know the wisdom of deep listening,
The healing of wholesome words,
The encouragement of the appreciative gaze,
The decorum of held dignity,
The springtime of the bleak question.

May you have a mind that loves frontiers
So that you can evoke the bright fields
That lie beyond the view of the regular eye.

May you have good friends
To mirror your blind spots.

May leadership be for you
A true adventure of growth.

John O’Donohue
