“Ordinarily, two people (of more or less equal ability) can follow each other’s movements. They work in rhythm with each other. If the rhythm has been well established, the tendency is to continue in the sequence of the movement. In other words, we are “motorset” to continue a sequence. The person who can break this rhythm can now score an attack with only moderate exertion.”
In our final Core Values at Work Episode Shannon and Sharon discuss Relationship, Communication, and Trust.
These Core Values are derived from Bruce Lee’s philosophies and Shannon has adjusted them for her workplace. Shannon has put together these Core Values based on how her workplace functions best, incorporating the philosophy and essence of her father, including what was important to him and what is important to Shannon.
At the Bruce Lee Family Company, Shannon has created core values for the company based off of her father’s philosophy. With the New Lunar Year fast approaching, Shannon has decided to revisit and refine those core values.
In Part 1, Shannon shares her core values of Best Effort, Personal Responsibility, and Uplift. These values inform how Shannon wants to show-up in the workplace and how she expects her employees to show-up.
For Bruce Lee the notion of compassion extends beyond the common definition that compassion is “allowing ourselves to be moved by suffering and wanting to alleviate or prevent suffering.”
Compassion is acceptance of others for who they are and where they are. It’s freedom from judgment and acceptance of your whole experience.
