Part of the series:
Ian Watson and Elizabeth Lovius riffing on life as a leader
- If you look at what’s taking up the time, which is a lot of people with a lot on their minds.
- And, when we have a lot on our mind, it tends to reduce our creativity and that we tend to have the same thoughts over and over again. And, when we’ve got a lot on our mind, we tend to have a lower mood and not always, but often, and that that mood then dictates how we act and how we behave, but more than that, it actually, it impacts what we actually see.
- So, if you then take all of that and you multiply that by the numbers of heads that are in an organisation, you’ve got a lot of energy going in a direction that isn’t necessarily focused on performance and potential. Now, if you think of the opposite, which is when people start to settle down, they’re in a calmer state of mind. They’re more available for new thinking, fresh thinking. They’re more connected. They’re more open to each other. Think about what’s possible in that environment. Now, imagine if you have that across your organisation. Imagine if your leaders are leading from that place. That, that’s a game changer.
