The Primal Happiness Show

I'm speaking to international business consultant, Robin Charbit. Robin began his career as a chemical engineer with Exxon in 1981, and eventually led one of Exxon’s international plastics businesses. He joined Arthur D. Little in 1992 first in Europe and ultimately, in Boston, where he led and managed the North American Chemicals Practice.

With a colleague, he left the more classical consulting world and founded Insight Management Partners, to bring an understanding of how the mind works into business. He then met Ken Manning and they joined forces to create Insight Principles.

We're talking about the link between psychological wellbeing and business success.

In the sports world, professionals understand the massive link between psychological state and performance however in business, usually we just want to get the job done and in less time, we're not interested in psychological wellbeing.

Robin explains how understanding the mind works is exactly what helps us to get more done in less time.

What you'll learn from the show:

  • Our natural state is that state of effortless flow and creativity - it's NOT something we have to create. We pull ourselves out of a flow state primarily through misunderstanding - attributing the outside world to causing our feelings, instead of what's going on in our own mind.

  • Ideas are gold in business... and they become so much more common when we're in a state of balance.

  • The moment that we remember that we're the thinker - that it's thought creating our feelings - the mind is then more likely to serve up a useful idea that will help us out. The more that we see that's the design of the system, we can be open to letting it all work beautifully.
