Power of Not Knowing
Why would a leader invest in ”not knowing” when what is required of them and their team is to know the answers and to solve problems?
What if “not knowing” IS the answer? And what if we allowed ourselves and our teams to work from curiosity and discovery instead of what we already know?
As a culture, especially in business, we’re expected to know. We are hired and promoted based on our knowledge and experience. Accepting that we don’t always have to know can be the hardest, yet most transformative tool in our lives, among teams and within business.
True ”knowing” requires us to align ourselves with the present moment. Only then can we experience the power and gifts that come from releasing control of our limited way of knowing. A few of the benefits that come from not knowing:
- Resiliency to change
- Becoming aware of the masks we wear, getting clear on what lies beneath them and brave enough to take them off
- A new approach to working with differences and conflict
- Getting unstuck and experiencing flow and creativity
- Authentic and genuine leadership and relationships
The intimate group of 5 participants will leave this experience with new connections, skills and tools. The power comes from the collective sharing and reflection of each member and the connections built from like-minded individuals sharing similar experiences.
This experience is for you or someone on your team who:
- has been struggling with a business or personal challenge
- wants to explore approaching life and work with an open heart and mind
- wants to be more authentic, kind, creative and interested in all relationships: business and life alike
- wants to foster a tighter and more authentic team dynamic and build a culture that embraces change.
Before we kick off, Stacy and Marina will schedule a 30-minute private session with each participant to get to know the group and better curate our agenda to the specific needs of each member. The experience will end with another 30-minute private session to wrap up and share key learnings.
The group will meet for two hours every week for four weeks.
**Specific date and time to be confirmed when group is assembled to be sure it works for all members. We will begin the week of May 3rd.
The WHY and WHAT of the experience in conversation with Marina + Stacy:
- Dr. Marina PapirovaLicensed psychologist and psychotherapist
I dedicate my life to serving people and assisting them in self-exploration, self-expression, self-love, and self-healing. Licensed psychologist, certified Soul Coach®, and certified Six-Sensory®, I provide holistic psychotherapy and inspirational psychic readings in my private practice in Denver.
For twelve years, I taught at the University of Denver as an adjunct faculty and clinical supervisor at the Counseling and Educational Services Clinic. Presently, I facilitate seminars, webinars and workshops on self discovery, self-love, authentic relationships, and manifestation of heart desires.
I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in psychology from Kharkov State University in my hometown of Kharkov, Ukraine and my Ph.D. degree in counseling psychology from the University of Denver. In addition to my mainstream education, I trained with and received professional certifications from several world celebrated teachers and healers.
Among my numerous hobbies are: reading, writing, walking in the woods, swimming in the ocean, designing and sewing clothes, yoga, drawing and dancing. Yet my most cherished practices, in which I engage daily, are contemplation and meditation.
- Stacy LambatosFounder, CAYA Studios
I am the founder of CAYA Studios. CAYA is the culmination of my personal passion and professional experience. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been finding and experiencing different ways to learn about myself and grow . I also chose a high stress career in events and marketing that taught me the ropes of conscious leadership and how to manage stress, while finding “success” in both public and private companies.
Prior to starting CAYA Studios, I was the VP of Brand Experiences for Verizon Media, the $8B Verizon Communications, Inc (NYSE: VZ) subsidiary. Over the 8 years at the company, I held leadership positions within events, B2B marketing, creative, and corporate brand. My experience through 8+ mergers and acquisitions, management changes and growing a team of 4 to 50+ employees has given me firsthand experience in leadership, business operations, marketing, building relationships and creating client and employee experiences. It was during these years I started getting the vision for CAYA, rooted in my own experience of intensity and change in the workplace and seeing the need for my own team’s wellbeing and joy, in and outside of work.
I was born and raised in Denver, CO and received my BBA, with an entrepreneurship emphasis at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. I’ve had the privilege of calling Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City home throughout my life. I’m a lover of people, connections, experiences….and candles!
