What do you believe in? Have you ever found belief, or lost it?

Do you believe in people, or things, or something else? Is belief logical, or is it even real?

If you have found belief, what has it given you, and if you have lost it, what has been taken away?

What are the currencies of belief? And does everyone have the means to pay?

When we talk about belief, there tend to be two clear contexts: religious and otherwise. The way we may believe in a deity is a different context from the way we may believe in a recession, or recovery.

Sometimes people talk about their belief being ‘shaken’ or ‘betrayed’, but is belief contracted, or implicit? Can belief be shared?

I’m starting to gather stories about belief, in all contexts. To listen, and to see what i can learn.

Previously i’ve carried out small scale research into ‘belief in leadership and organisations’, which indicated that belief is important, but not how.

This work is still an early thought, but i have reserved time for it in what promises to be a busy year.


Well, because i think we are predisposed to believe – whatever it is that we believe in – and i think belief relates to leadership, to culture, to belonging, to power, to change, as well as to broader notions of safety, wellbeing, and validation.

To start, this is listening work, and i will share what i hear.
