Kintsugi: the Art of Creating Value from Breaks

Have you heard of Kintsugi?

As a philosophy, it has lots to teach us about self-growth (and leadership).

Kintsugi is the art of taking broken ceramics and mending them back together with gold, silver or platinum to create a new wholeness.

Instead of hiding or disguising fractures and breaks, Kintsugi celebrates each artifact’s unique history by emphasizing them.

When finished, stunning veins of gold line the cracks of each repaired piece, making it one-of-a-kind.

The result is a piece that’s even more beautiful (and valuable) than the original.

Imagine embracing this perspective on a larger scale.

We all have breaks, knocks, and chips.

As you heal the things that have been broken, you create a more unique, beautiful and resilient you.

Even better, imagine living this philosophy as the leader of your team.

Your example would set people free from shame and so many other things they’ve been carrying around. They would see that the hard times they’ve been (or are going) through aren’t taking away from but adding to their potential.

They would see the beauty in the midst of the difficult.
