I would like to tell you briefly why I like this amazing open source 8 minute film about character.

As an Executive Coach and Leadership and Personal Development facilitator I have learnt the power of a film over endless talking and explaining. Strange that virtually non of my education was delivered in this medium. Yet, for me, my strong recollections from school and university were when I doodled a concept or structure in my own unique way. Where I created a mind map or saw a still photograph in a text book. Still to this day when I’m buying a technical book I flick through the pages to check it isn’t all words. Yes I agree not everyone is the same but we are largely visual, after all we do tend to love TV and films do we not and social media is largely about imagery, still and moving.

 

The film is made by Tiffany Schlain, an inspirational film maker, speaker, writer, influencer and an Emmy-nominated filmmaker.

 

The Science of Character (8 mins) explores the neuroscience and social science that proves that we can shape who we are, and who we want to be in the world.

Take a look for yourself
