When we are listening for the faint signals of difference, we can slowly begin to see our visions of the future.
Carefully tuning ourselves into our experience, we can sensitively and creatively develop the capacity to feel our way a new, more artful, individual way of living and working.
We are all visionaries now, making images with our phones and publishing across media in ways that were unknown just a few years ago. As we play witness to our times, our ability to unlock the future is expanding fast as our visual literacy and creative potential grows, and as we learn to see, and be seen, differently.
Welcome to Listening with our Eyes
I'm an optimist and a dreamer, constantly trying to find creative images for new ways of living and working together. If you are an entrepreneur, leader, coach, change agent, consultant, freelancer, shifter, designer, teacher, or creator seeking intuitive, imaginal, visionary ways of seeing the future, this is for you.
Dr. Steve Marshall
Many of us realise that the ways in which we are living and working are unrewarding, unsustainable and boring. So, how do we generate helpful, creative, inspiration that spans the gap between where we are now and a better, more fulfilling future for ourselves, our organisations and our institutions?
The Big Questions
We know that the habitual focus on efficiency and effectiveness, productivity and profit, hierarchy and control are not enough in a world of enormous social, environmental and ethical challenges.
How can we reconsider some of the big questions about the potential of generative work, social justice, creativity and sustainability while developing our passion and commitment for the vision of a better world?
"I love Steve’s work.....
......he finds a way to show people as he sees them, in all their beauty and humanity. His pictures are potent because he gives us an image of ourselves not normally available to us."
(John Higgins, co-editor, The Change Doctors)
"Steve has a wonderful capability...
...to work with complex situations and dynamics, with a grounded and calm personality, remaining clear and focused under all conditions. He is very intelligent, straight forward and honest in his dealings with his clients, whilst also being innovative, supportive and insightful."
(Caryn Vanstone, Ashridge)
Each morning, there is a moment when the doors of London’s Victoria and Albert Museum open to the patiently waiting crowd outside and… nothing happens… no-one moves….
Taking seriously for a moment the idea that vision and evocative visuals might be connected....
"There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth." ~ Cynthia Heimel
"I dream of visionaries living in every neighbourhood."
