I watched a video conversation with Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers and musician Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. It was incredibly insightful! It’s almost like one of those great coffee shop conversations where you get to a new level of depth with a friend reflecting on your craft and yourself…and seeing connections between your fields and lives.
These two performers reflect on leadership, authenticity, creativity, their past and future story, inner work, spirituality, meaning, and many powerful topics that go beyond sports and music. It got deep! Give it a watch and let us know your insights. It looks like they share a lot more in common than just a Wisconsin connection.
I enjoyed the top comment on the YouTube video: “Whoever was responsible for the intersection of these two individuals at GQ, is a genius and should be treated as a national treasure.”
You can also apply deeper reflection in your own life and work. Check out the concept of reflective practice and you can also use a retrospective template with your team to make the reflection formal and structured.
