We are always looking at producing some results. Causing something. Avoiding something. Making something happen. Ensuring something doesn’t happen.
What causes Results? Actions.
Your Actions. Other People’s Actions. Also Inactions.
What influences Actions? Thought Patterns
As thought patterns change, one sees a change in actions and behaviours.
What influences Thought Patterns?
That is the million dollar question. That is the blindspot for most people.
The source of the thought patterns is the internal state that leaders and team members are operating from.
What is the internal state?
As Dr. Otto Scharmer mentions in Theory U – the internal state consists of 3 elements:
- Intention : What is your Intention? Is it an EGO Intention or an ECO Intention
- Attention: What is the quality of your attention? Is it on your Intention or are you distracted with the routine or the emergency.
- Presence: What is the quality of your being present and sensing (deep listening, sensing and sense-making)
This is one of the elements that we train in-depth in the Leadership from the Emerging Future workshops and interventions.
