Are you happy?

Within you lies vast untapped potential waiting to be discovered. Through the Happiness Program, this potential is set free and you get a proper vision of who you really are.

What happens at work and in our lives is we tend to focus on the future, or the regrets from the past, and do not live in the present moment. This vacillation between the past and the future creates stress in our mind and body. It robs of us our happiness which is experienced in the here and now!

“I’ve been teaching this program for 10 years, and doing the practices taught on the course for 13 years. My professional capabilities and personal relationships have improved immeasurably. One example of this is becoming an author and writing a book. This is definitely one outcome I can attribute to the practices taught on the course.”Joanna Barclay, Art of Happiness Program Teacher”.

Practical Benefits for Improving the Quality of Life:

  • Reduced stress
  • Greater sense of joy, happiness, and enthusiasm
  • Experience more confidence
  • Development of interpersonal skills and self-awareness
  • Greater mental clarity and peace of mind

Slow Down, Cool Down

January 1, 2018, 1:20AM I boarded a plane in Singapore headed for Berlin. I was excited and couldn’t think of a better way to spend the first week of 2018 than on a meditation course with my spiritual master, Gurudev, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

However, like many such courses, the stillness of our mind is often tested before we reach the event. When I arrived at the airport, I soon discovered my original flight had been cancelled.

“Ahhh”, I thought to myself. “The Sanyam course begins!”

“Slow down, cool down”. These were the first words spoken by Gurudev, and soon became the theme for the week. I took a sigh of relief thinking…

“Perfect, this is just what I needed”.

Like most personal development programs the benefits experienced are mostly internal and difficult to put into words, so I won’t even begin to try. Suffice to say, after the course and a week at home, my nervous system is saying “Thank you!”.

If I had to choose one word to describe the week, I’d say “Celestial” 

In Part 3 of my book on how to lead cultural transformation, I begin with Chapter 7 entitled: Tools for Inner Transformation. Why? Because before you can lead change, you must develop the skills to be able to access new sources of wisdom that will guide and empower you to lead transformational change. Otherwise you will continue to do what you have always done, and that is not transformation. Transformational leadership requires you to go inside and access new imaginal ideas through your intuition, awareness, and creativity.

What blocks or supports transformation is the state of our mind and quality of our awareness. Our mind is both the tool and object of change. When we encounter challenges or problems, do we respond or react? I used to react in difficult situations and in the process manage to alienate those I loved the most. My emotions would get the better of me and I knew I was not thinking clearly with all my mental abilities. Now, with more awareness, I respond with a curious mind that is more centered and calm.

Tools for inner transformation are those that develop inner awareness and access knowledge in our subconscious mind. To access wisdom at this level, one needs to still the thoughts of the conscious mind. This can be achieved through the breath and meditation. An added benefit to stilling our thoughts is the peace of mind, mental clarity, and rest it gives to the whole body.

From the moment we wake until we go to sleep at night our minds are busy working at 14 to 32 cycles per second. This takes a lot of energy and is why we come home feeling exhausted even though we have not been physically active. Sitting for twenty minutes twice a day in meditation is a healthy practice for leaders to reduce stress, relax, and re-energize. The whole point is to do nothing.

Mounting medical research continues to suggest that our health, quality of life, and even the length of our life are all affected by our mental and emotional states. Now the hard science has caught up: a comprehensive scientific study has shown that deep relaxation changes our bodies on a genetic level. What researchers at Harvard Medical School discovered is that in long-term practitioners of relaxation methods such as yoga and meditation, far more ”disease-fighting genes” were active, compared to those who practiced no form of relaxation.

As a corporate leadership consultant I have to be the first to experience a process before I can share, lead, and teach my clients a new method. This takes dedication to personal development and the desire to constantly learn, grow, and reflect.

Much of the personal awareness I have developed can be attributed to the tools and techniques taught on the TLEX Program. I highly recommend this as the first leadership development program for your leadership team if you are looking to develop transformational leadership in your organization.

You will be so happy you did! 🙂

Much love from Singapore,

Joanna

Thank you

In gratitude to all who have made 2017 a memorable year!

In particular, my husband, for supporting me on this incredible journey of discovery, and making a difference.

It takes a lot of courage to move to other side of the world and into a different culture.  He’s having fun, collecting research for his first book: “The Stupid Expat!”  Indeed, we keep having those unforgettable experiences. 🙂

As 2017 draws to a close, this is a perfect time to thank all those who have joined us on the journey.

To the leaders who were willing and open to hearing new messages and trying new things.

To the students who invested in learning how to build values-driven organizations and share in this passion to empower human potential.

To the Barrett Values Centre for investing in South-east Asia:

  1. Conducting a roadshow to promote their Cultural Transformation Tools in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur;
  2. Providing the next level of training certification to develop cultural transformation practitioners in Asia.

It has been exciting to see the growing desire for this knowledge, and 2018 looks even brighter with our first CTT Practitioner Training January 29 – February 1.

Countries who were enriched by this knowledge in 2017 include:

  • Argentina, Bahrain, Bali, Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, Indonesia, Sinagpore, and the USA.

To all our partners and associates, thank you for reaching out and connecting. It’s a joy and honour to collaborate and share the wisdom and experience of leaders who are making a difference through values. Becoming the best for the world, not just the best in the world.

And last, but certainly not least, a very special thanks to our internet and social media teams. Our internet presence is growing and we were engaged several times this year for talks on Conscious Leadership through Values. As a result, Joanna did her first TEDx client talk to a leading woman’s group and even managed a few laughs. 🙂

Our promise in 2018

We are looking forward to joining you on this exciting journey and will continue providing thought-leadership. Adding value to you and your organization, so you can be healthier, happier, and more fulfilled.

Much love from Singapore.

Joanna

Engagement Leadership to Build Trust

The most successful projects I have worked on in my career were the ones where leaders made a large investment in managing the impact of change on their people. These included a personal commitment by the leaders to understand the challenges the employees would be going through.

Along with a significant financial commitment, leaders invested emotionally in “engagement” communications. The purpose of engagement communications is to raise awareness, calm fears, and develop a desire for new skills and capabilities to support people emotionally during the implementation of change.

On one of these huge Information Technology (IT) transformation projects,  I travelled across the Canada visiting each client office as part of a travelling road show. In the morning, staff heard about the history of the project and why, what, and how the new technology was selected. In the afternoon, they received a demonstration of the new office technology system.

The road show was a terrific success on many levels. It shared information, giving people the data they needed to understand why change was necessary. It showed willingness for openness and transparency in the decision-making process, as the leaders were present answering many questions. This engaging communication process started to build trust relationships between the business functions and IT Support groups, a necessary component for engaging communication and harmonious collaboration. The roadshow presented how the new systems and processes were going to function so people could begin to understand the new expectations and how their jobs were going to change.

Above all it demonstrated to staff how much their leaders cared about them and showed the leaders’ willingness to understand the emotional impact this change would have.

As a leader, showing you care goes a very long way to building trust and a sense of belongingness with staff. It provides the opportunity for people to voice their concerns and hear what will be done to take care of them. It’s often the heart-to-heart opportunities to communicate that have the most profound effect in building trust and a strong sense of commitment. This emotional commitment will carry you through the many challenges that are sure to happen on projects.

If you are wondering how to develop engaging leadership and build trust, come and join the Cultural Transformation Tools workshop in Mumbai India November 21 – 24.  Understand what it takes to create an organizational values system and workplace culture with openness, belongingness, and trust. These organizations are the most successful on the planet because staff are empowered to reach their full potential.

There is nothing more powerful than a turned-on, empowered human being.

Much love from Singapore.

The Difference Between Motivation and Inspiration

Five years ago, the morning of my first webinar on Cultural Transformation, I was awoken at 3:30am by a huge ahha!  I leapt out of bed, jumping around the room, feeling like I had just found the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

It was a realization so powerful it has become my life’s purpose to share with leaders, everywhere. A source of inspiration that comes from within, and no cost to an organization.  I knew this would be an enormous gift, finding a source of inspirational energy which would increase engagement, commitment, and high performance.

How do current management practices seek to increase performance? Perhaps you have created new strategies to attain goals which will enable your organization to continue to grow and develop, or respond to external changes in the environment. You know the new goals will require additional effort and commitment, new values and behaviours, even cultural transformation.

In response to situations like this, management create rewards to motivate and incent new behaviours to achieve the goals. Unfortunately, external rewards to motivate are short-lived.  They have a short shelf-live because they fail to connect to the true source of inspiration, which is found internally within us.

True inspiration creates enthusiasm, energy and commitment.  It’s long lasting, unlimited, and generates high performance. When you inspire a person you are connecting to their sense of purpose. A higher purpose connected to personal growth and wanting to make a difference.

How can leaders tap into this source of inspiration? What is this source of unlimited human potential which inspires humanity to do great things, over achieve, give self-less service toward making a difference? This was my ahha moment.

Our human values.

Yes, we all have them. They are a gift that connects each of us to one another, at the heart level.  The power and effectiveness lies in leaders learning how to work with human values consciously and effectively. Awakening them is part of the transformation process in changing mindsets, behaviours, culture, systems and structures.

When you respect and trust someone, where does this feeling come from? Your head or your heart?  Values are the language of the heart because this is where we experience them, and the energy of the heart does not lie.

Consciously building a work environment that enlivens respect and trust has tremendous potential. Ask yourself: How do you feel when you are respected and trusted? What is the impact on your performance? How would you feel if you did not experience respect and trust? What impact would this have on your performance?

When you find out the values which are important to your people, and seek to enliven these values in the workplace, you are tapping into an unlimited source of inspiration, power, and potential to achieving your goals.

You can easily test this by conducting a Small Group Values Assessment. Discover how to tap into the human potential in your organization by awakening the life force energy in values.

Values-driven organizations are the highest performing. They are 1649% more profitable than the S&P500 over a 15 year period.  In times of economic downturn, they are the first to recover.  Why? When employees’ basic needs and growth needs are met, they bring  enthusiasm and commitment into the workplace, inspiring innovation, creativity and high performance.

Remember, your long-term power as a leader comes from inspiring your people, not just motivating them. Seek to connect to the soul of your organization by working with values, the language of the heart, a gift we are all born with.

Conscious Leadership Transformation

What is the mind?  Vibrating consciousness.

The organizational values of individuals have energetic resonance

to create the future.

Consciousness creates matter.   Gita Bellin

My husband and I have been married for twenty-seven years. Like many long term relationships we have had our ups and downs. During some of the challenging times, our different beliefs and values created conflict and a feeling of separation, driving a wedge in the love and connection we felt for each other. Particularly challenging conversations for us were about politics, where our opinions seemed to be polar opposites. We’d end up in conflict, with raw emotions and hurt feelings because we could not agree with each other and there was no sense of togetherness on the topic.

Have you ever had this feeling in a relationship close to you?

One day I was teaching a yoga class, feeling very grounded on my mat on the hardwood floor, calm and centered as I spoke. The theme for the day was “Skill in Action,” how valuable it was to apply the skills you learn in life to all aspects of living. As I was teaching the lesson a realization began to dawn in me. Why not use all your training in human dynamics and communication to solve my own relationship problems. There was a chuckle inside my head as I heard myself laughing at how self-centered I’d been. It’s one thing to teach the knowledge and another to really live it.

From that day forward I became more aware of the motivational values of people around me and what made them tick. I did a lot of soul searching on my own values. I discovered one of my top values is commitment. By living this value more authentically I recognized how much more satisfying it was to feel committed and live the value of commitment in our relationship, than it was to focus on our differences. Our different beliefs were not going to change any time soon, and, quite possibly, they exist to spark growth in each other. However, what did change as a result of the shift in mindset and focus to accepting my husband’s values and who he was, was a new outlook that has made our relationship happier and more joyful.

As we develop conscious awareness of our own values, this helps us to become more conscious for the values of others, especially those we lead. One way to increase your consciousness about values is to have a conversation.

Ask people to name one of their top values:

  • Why this value is important to them?
  • What they do to live this value?
  • What is the impact living this value has on their performance at work?
  • How would they feel if this value is stepped on or ignored?

During this conversation you will see their life force come alive, their demeanor shift, their facial features lift and brighten, and their tone of voice have more energy and life.

Conscious leadership transformation is internal.  It’s a shift that happens on the inside which impacts our behaviour.  This is why leaders must be the first to transform when leading change. They need to be the change and role model for others to follow.

It all starts by becoming more conscious and aware of who you are, and the values that define you.  When you do, you have discovered a source of life force energy that connects to your soul, and source of joy and happiness.

3 Steps to a Successful Strategy Implementation

Everyone knows workplace culture is important. In many cases, a company’s culture is more important than its strategy or operating model . A few years ago, a consulting company in Singapore did a study with 200 companies. Their results showed 9 out of 10 strategic initiatives failed because leaders didn’t focus on changing people’s behaviours and how they worked together.

Do you have new business requirements and strategies that will require different behaviours and a shift in corporate culture? Unless you focus on changing how people work together how can you expect different results? Einstein said that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is… insanity.

If Einstein was at your workplace, he might say “Leading, managing and behaving in the same old ways while expecting your employees to embrace new work habits and higher levels of collaboration is cultural insanity.”

In your annual planning sessions, do you see strategies coming back… year-after-year because your organization didn’t implement them successfully? One reason might be because your current culture, the way people are working today, is out of alignment with the strategies you’re trying to implement.
May I help you increase your strategy implementation success?

It’s as easy as 1…2…3…

Step 1

Identify all the stakeholders who are impacted by the strategies you wish to implement. A stakeholder is any person or group who has an interest in your success.

Step 2
Conduct an environmental scan with your key stakeholders and identify the drivers for change. They are the impetus and motivation for change, providing the change effort’s relevance and meaning. Drivers are the purpose for those leading the change as well as those who are going to be affected by the change. People need to understand and accept the compelling reasons for change before they will commit to changing their behaviours.

Worksheet – Compelling Reasons for Change
Purpose: To build commitment for cultural transformation by conducting an environmental scan and identifying the compelling reasons for change.

Stakeholder Analysis & Environment Scan

Stakeholder analysis:
Who are our stakeholders?
What do they need from us?
How do we serve them?
External business environment:
What changes are affecting our organization and generating new business imperatives?
Internal business environment
How do we constantly learn from our experiences and daily operations?
How do team members bring themselves fully to work?
Organizational and social structures:
How do we develop clarity on team objectives between all stakeholders?
How does the team best organize itself to deliver on priorities?
The forces that hold the team together:

The most challenging struggles identified in the drivers for change deal with leaders’ and team members’ behaviours and mindset. They need to develop awareness, ownership, and responsibility for the internal drivers of change such as personal behaviors and values. This is because organizations do not change: it is the people in them that do. For sustained success and real change to happen, the change must begin at the base, in the mindset and values of leaders and staff. When mindsets change, new thinking and strategies emerge, making new behaviors possible, sparking a rippling effect up the drivers of change.
