A Discussion of Selfish vs Selfless Guru Talk

A Discussion of Selfish vs Selfless

Today's guru talk is a segment from our 2018 annual member conference in Los Cabos Mexico. Kirkland Tibbels is working with London student, Suzanne Poole to study this fundamental precept. They are reading a segment of our book, Transactionalism: An Historical and Interpretative Study, by Trevor Jay Phillips. Kirkland helps bring some additional understanding to the philosophy that guides this thinking. We'll then here Salida, Colorado's student, David Cottrell who identifies with our inventor personality, and his revelations from the too selfish and of the selfless-selfish spectrum. Suzanne Poole: Any attempt to define transaction in philosophical terms must include implications…

Guru Talk Judge Personality Asset and Liability

The Asset and Liability of the Judge Personality and How Each Personality Can Work Together

In this installment of Guru Talk, Co-Founder Kirkland Tibbels talks about the asset and liability of the judge personality, and how each personality can work together in the work that we address as planning, strategy, tactics, and implementation. Kirkland: When we get around to the judge, that most skeptical and critical and often confrontational personality, we bump up against standards. The asset of standards is that if we follow along with the rules, the laws, the regulations, the expectations, the standards, the ethics, the codes of conduct that we all agree we would when we engage in this transaction in…

Thinking Accurately Guru Talk Influence Ecology

The Importance of Thinking Accurately About Our Most Essential Conditions of Life

Influence Ecology co-founders Kirkland Tibbels and John Patterson address why we must think accurately about some of our most essential Conditions of Life and how easy it is to get caught up in a busy, noisy, deluge of information pedaled in the marketplace. John Patterson: We want to talk a little bit about why we must think accurately. Quote from Napoleon Hill, "I do not believe that I can afford to deceive others. I know that I cannot afford to deceive myself." (more…)

A Discussion About the Naiveté of Self-Sufficiency

Autonomy is not self-sufficiency. Being autonomous does not mean that you are self-sufficient. In fact, the way we define autonomy at Influence Ecology is "having more help than you need." Why in the world would somebody go into business for themselves to be free and autonomous, to be able to come and go as they please, to live a life as they choose, and then do everything themselves? My experience of that is people tend to have a naïve or an ignorant notion about what it means to be independent, free, and autonomous. And that's a mistake. The closer you…

A Study of the Elements of Value

One element of value most people ignore or are simply indifferent to is that of their professional identity, and more specifically, the identity of help that they produce in the specific ecologies where they must produce powerful identity. The identity you produce in the areas where you transact to satisfy your conditions of life—that's what we call your career. Our approach to career is a transactional approach; it's a holistic, integral approach to dealing with our identity. When we talk about identity, we're talking about how we're known. When we talk about an identity of value, we're talking about a…
