Most of our troubles, personal, local, organisational, national, and international, are fundamentally based in our perceived need to hang onto the world in here (my view), our issues with the world out there (other people's views), and, our failure to focus more on the world we share (ours).
The exciting news is that when we find and sustain shared-view (ours) we can triumph over all our troubles.
In the workplace the most successful leaders sustain shared-view in seven areas of significance as overviewed in the diagnostic below. You can download the diagnostic here.
I take a quick look at each of the seven areas in the videos below.
The 'one great idea' is that full appreciation of what is, dramatically increases your likelihood of achieving what can be (possibility).
The 'one great idea' is that what we truly believe we can achieve.
The 'one great idea' is that your life only has one purpose, so does your business, and the two are connected in an unbreakable way.
The 'one great idea' is that strategy is the compass that guides your personal and business decisions, and execution is the map.
The 'one great idea' is that clever answers often hinder execution, whereas wise questions accelerate the process.
The 'one great idea' is that in the new world of work only the milestones and lead measures that have meaning for people have value. ‘What gets measured gets done’ is not always true.
The 'one great idea' is that behaviour determines your culture.
I explore how to sustain shared-view in detail in The Appreciative Leader handbook.
You can download your copy of the handbook with my compliments here.
You can view the companion resources web page to the handbook here. Please note the special exercises under Sparkenations 15 and 16 about Appreciating what is and Imagining What Can Be.
Peter Milligan and myself have a conversation about shared-view and what he calls complimentary opposites.
Below are recordings of two conversations I had with members of my community about sustaining shared-view.
Below is the video about values referenced in part two.
Sparkenation conversations + mentoring about change, collaboration and transformation that guarantee better results at less human and operating costs, since 1991.
