Here’s Great Tip: Could One Question Uplift and Unite Humanity? | Jon Berghoff | TEDxTraverseCity


Here is Something You Should See…


“For 35 years, we’ve been asking… what causes any human system to come alive, more naturally, effectively, and faster than before? The answer… begins with new questions.” Jon Berghoff says in his talk that we have control over the meaning we give things, and appreciative inquiry is a good path forward. He asks, what is happening a generation from now, in your image of the future, that you most want to create?

Only two things intrigue Jon Berghoff more than the art of asking a beautiful question.

The first: possibilities. Possibilities for how questions might cause our human systems to come alive, be at our best, play to our strengths, innovate from everywhere, deepen our sense of purpose or even, dare we say, save the world.

The second: science. The data-driven, scientifically informed craft of designing questions in a way that makes what is possible become probable.

Early entrepreneurial ventures served as a “way out” for Jon, diagnosed with ADHD and rejected from every college he applied to. Eventually, his insatiable curiosity propelled him to lead the meteoric sales growth for Vitamix Corporation, from $40 million to $175 million in just four years.

Today, Jon and his team at Flourishing Leadership Institute are guided by one question: What causes a human system to come alive faster, more effectively, and more naturally than ever before? The answers might surprise you. lead2flourish.com

  1. We as humans must unite. We must forget our petty differences and divisions like nationality and race, we are one. We are humans, we must unite humanity first. We must unite into one unified Union, the Greater Terran Union, the time of division and segregation is over, this humanity, and we are one. Long live our union, long live humanity. Terra Invicta!!
