Building an Entertainment Castle

How do you make a party for a friend that is entirely different? What do you do when your significant other turns 40 and you’re tired of just getting a group of friends together to go to their favorite restaurant?

You build a castle and have a medieval evening planned for a group of friends, that’s what!  The first thing you have to do is get into the mental headspace of royalty. Think of yourself as a king or queen.  Imagine yourself having maids and servants. Watch a few period dramas on TV and start getting “in character.”

Second, we have found that since adults tend to go for Medieval themes, which makes a good first party theme idea for your Castle Anorak.  Check out treasure chests, old coins; go to thrift stores and look online; make a stone wall backdrop and even get the kids involved in art decorations.

Third, consider what food you will serve.  Get those really cool goblets for the wine (homemade and not-so-good – even better!).  Make some red swords out of pretzels or dragon fireballs from cereal (it’s all in the packaging!) and get the banquet really going.

Fourth, think about including a mystery theme in the event.  If you’re going to do that you have to prepare well in advance but it’s definitely doable. 

Whatever you do, just remember the more detached from reality it is, the better!  There’s nothing more fun than engaging your loved one and friends in the unexpected!

Linguistic Programming

Neuro Linguistic Programming speaks to us in one of their assumptions, that the map is not the territory, that is, each person has a subjective perception of reality, and according to the mental map that develops, will react to their environment in a certain way. In our learning throughout life, we are establishing certain patterns of beliefs, and many of them correspond to limiting beliefs that lead to unsatisfactory and ineffective paradigms. One of the most recurring beliefs that we see in the management world, is the belief based on the control, fear and mistrust. This programming rooted in the mental map of the Manager, will determine a leadership style based on the necessity of imposing above the other, bringing as a result a demotivated team, be carried out their work obligation, with the only incentive existing external, economic compensation. This situation ends up being one of the most common sources of the leak’s talents in a company. We can conclude then, that to retain the talent, must necessarily produce a change of beliefs in the mental map of the Steering, transforming your leadership towards a more horizontal relationship, where the controller role evolves to the Facilitator, characterized by a greater degree of participation and dynamic interaction with its partners. When you change the vision towards a more positive approach, based on trust and solutions, develop synergies of mutual collaboration between the leader and his team.

To do this, the starting point is the development of creativity.When a person is able to create a different way of doing things, the result is the change of vision, perception is changed, expands the alternatives of solving problems and therefore arises the flexibility to give a new shape to the how to find effective solutions and achieve strategic results. As proposed by the PNL, the starting point is if doesn’t it work the mechanisms of how attempts to improve a situation, then do something different!..
