Flow-Based Leadership: Optimizing Team Performance

Presented by

Guest: Dr. Judith Glick-Smith > Host: Ann Rockley

About this talk

In the world of work, teams are essential. The ability to create and innovate together on complex, emergent systems is a must for successful projects. Have you ever worked on a great team? As an individual and as a team, you are purpose-driven and focused outward. It is a joy to work when goals are clear. You and your teammates lose your sense of time and self. This is what is called “flow.” Flow is the intersection of skills and challenge. It is precipitated by a trigger that pulls you out of yourself and drops you into a place of knowing. A 10-year McKinsey study showed that people are 5 times more productive when they are "in flow." Working "in flow" is a hard skill that must be nurtured through conscious leadership, because flow itself is emergent. Flow-based leadership is about maximizing your own flow states while facilitating the flow states of others. How can your organization help your people experience flow more often, thereby improving their productivity, decision-making, and leadership capabilities?
