Wisdom Practices in Social Media and Business with Martin Shervington
*What is the connection between Social Media and Wisdom*? At first sight they don’t seem to belong to a similar category. It is not social media per se, but the way you USE it where the wisdom aspect comes into play. WHAT do you use Social Media for and HOW do you use it?
Martin Shervington is a Pioneer in exploring Google+ from the very first hour. His knowledge about NLP and the integral philosophy of Ken Wilber and other famous thought leaders in the field, he is deeply routed in a developmental mindset: Everything develops – and we have the power to direct and accelerate the development. Not by chance he wrote a book “Developmental Coaching”.
When entering into the world of Google and Social Media in general such a mindset will easily propel us into wanting to discover what is possible. It might begin as a curiosity, a game, but it can become very substantial and engaging, as it certainly is in the case of Martin who has explored the ever changing world of Google (and other platforms) and generously offers his discoveries to the whole community of users.
And he does it with WISDOM. There is the wisdom he adopted from the developmental and integral worldview which he brings down to earth with what he is doing – without even naming it with any label, such as “integral”.
He has built up his presence in G+ with Wisdom, practical Wisdom, which had made him to one of the biggest influencers on the platform.
In our show we will talk about how his knowledge and experience has influenced the choices he has made and the paths he has taken on. It is not about the “How to” in regard to specific questions, but about the entire thought process, the strategies and the values behind all that, as well as the overall orientation for the outcome: What does all that serve us and where can it lead us if we use the tools we have available in a wise way.
Explorer of consciousness, marketeer, writer on communication including Google+
Big fan of Ken Wilber, Robert Kegan and the whole integral world.
Author of 8 books and scripts with a psychological twist – sometimes they are even funny.
*Martin says about himself*:
I have a Law and Business Studies, LLB (Joint Hons), PG Dip Organisational Psychology, Master Practitioner NLP and have spent almost 20 years working as an executive coach, business consultant and marketing psychologist; I’m now based between the UK and the USA, depending upon clients.
He helps people to build their brand on Google+, and enable a community of people to fall in love with what they do; so much so, that the Google Search algorithm cannot resist giving them incredible results.
*About your hosts*:
+Mark Davenport is an American Midwesterner, frequent visitor to and now resident in Italy. Degrees in English Literature and Secondary Education preceded a Masters degree in Italian Literature from the University of Wisconsin.
Years of teaching at secondary and university levels were followed by ever more “human interest” years as a certified drug and alcohol counselor, then to more mellow years in retail, culminating in more years as a “full time” retired Floridian before coming out into life again in Italy with years of philosophical, psychological and spiritual study supporting his passion to bring all that “head” knowledge to a practical emotional, physical and behavioral level where true transformation lies – after all those decades of half-life so many of us experience.
