Thrive in exponential times!
Friday, October 2, 2020
Much of what will distinguish exceptional performance today depends on mental strength, resilience and courage. The ‘new normal’ is characterised by deep uncertainty, change and disruption, at a rate and pace that is unprecedented – taking humanity into unchartered territory – and calling for new capabilities!
Some BIG questions to reflect on …
─ How do you thrive in this new normal?
─ How do you fortify yourself?
─ How do you diffuse and face fear and uncertainty?
─ How do you steer yourself, your organisation and your loved ones through the eye of the hurricane?
The success of business and society going forward will depend on the resilience and creativity of humans. We need to build systems of creativity, curiosity, connection and empathy in order to lead with heart, trust and collaboration and – most importantly – we need to be comfortable with change. The Performance Hub has cracked a competency framework called The Meta Code – including a behaviour
change blueprint/recipe to reset the mind and expand the skillset, toolset and heart-set needed to THRIVE … and steer one-self, teams and organisations forward in these exponential times.
There are four quintessential human competencies that we lead with, as illustrated below, they are:
─ RESILIENCE … this is about learning, adapting and integrating change in order to ‘bounce’ forward.
─ AUTHENTICITY … you need to lead and manage yourself first, i.e., having a clear sense of who you are, what you can do, where you are going in order to show up and lead from an authentic core.
─ COLLABORATION … building authentic human connections, co-creating and working together to achieve shared goals. Collective intelligence (called the C Factor) trumps individual intelligence.
─ INNOVATION … as the digital revolution continues, imagination, curiosity, executive function and problem solving are going to be critical … this is about thinking in and out of the box
