Part Two – Characteristics of limnos

continued from On living with liminality, Part one. Part three here.

I’m going to highlight key statements that articulate the characteristics of a person who embraces liminal space,

  • Cross cultural
    skills such as flexibility, tolerance and strong observation skills

    • As cultures and communities come increasingly into
      contact, we need to know how to respect, observe and learn from cultural
      differences.
    • We are
      life-long learners, and the world is our classroom
  • Poised to deal with rapid change. Comfortable with ambiguity.
    • The ability think quickly on our feet and can
      take the initiative to troubleshoot — but we often do so in a context of
      understanding the currents and observing the situation first.
    • Flexibility and
      tolerance don’t always translate as strong points in business.
    • Observation in particular seems to be underrated.
    • Tries to figure
      out which way the river is flowing before jumping in. i.e. sees the big picture.
  • Multi-dimensional world view
    • We don’t assume that our way is the best or only way.
  • Greater "spiritual" perspective or Open to other value systems.
    • We observe that different people’s experience
      has created different truths in their lives — from how to relate to self
      and others to how to relate to spirituality.
    • Question those who promote a belief that there is
      only ONE way to nourish a spiritual life.
    • Rather than be threatened by different
      belief systems, relish the beauty in the diversity, taking something from everything.
