Creating a Better World

At a recent talk, an attendee asked if I had noticed a shift in the consciousness of people around the world.  And the answer I gave was, yes. As democracy flourishes, millions of people are demanding their voices be heard, not just in how nations are governed, but also in how the organizations are led and run.

More than ever before people are looking for accountability, equality, fairness, freedom, openness, transparency, and trust.

Is this a good thing? I believe it is if you truly would like to see a better world.

Check out how world-class, freedom-centered (rather than fear-based) organizations and leaders are doing in over 80 countries around the world through Worldblu.com.

It all starts with building better organizations, who have a purpose to add value to society.  Did you know, the most successful organizations in the world are values-driven?  How is this you ask?  When you seek to understand employee’s needs, and make an effort to fulfil those needs, employees respond by becoming more engaged, and bring creativity and commitment into work.

How many times have I heard leaders asking for higher engagement, creativity and commitment?  Almost very organization is looking for these. They have become the new buzzwords.

So the next question I often get during my talks is: “How do I meet all of my employee needs?  They have so many it seems.  My response is quite simple:

We all have the same basic human needs, which everyone wants to experience in life and at work.

Respect, Integrity, Loyalty, Fairness, and Trust.

Who does not wish to experience these?  In fact, it’s when we don’t that trouble happens.

We all want to feel accepted for who we are, our values and behaviours. The challenge is we do not all have the same beliefs or expected behaviours that define these values.  Hence, the need for dialogue and accepting our differences.  This is a biggie, accepting our differences.

More often than not, we judge each other and expect others to be just like us.  However, if we can accept people for who they are, and make an effort to share our values, what makes them important to us, and the kind of behaviours we’d like to experience, an amazing transformation can happen.

When people talk about their values, they connect on the heart level. It creates a deep connection, sense of belongingness and trust. Give it a try by taking your own Personal Values Assessment and share the results with your family, friends and team. Here is a teambuilding exercise to use in working with your values.

Another challenge to creating a better world is our personal values as a society are not currently in alignment with business values. For example, we want to trust our leaders, and have them care about the health and welfare of others, make a difference and contribute to society as a whole. Can business as a whole say it shares the same values? If we look at our current political reality, there are global leaders who are governed by self-interest and not looking out for the common good.

It is misalignment of values like this that is causing the decrease in employee engagement leading to reduced productivity and efficiency. Business needs to find ways to create inspiring visions, with meaning and purpose that align with the values of their employees, strategic objectives, and society.

The greatest cultural transformation happens when leadership teams are asked to put aside the personal agendas and the self-interest of the organizations they represent, to work together as one for the common good.  In doing so they all reap the exponential benefits. Before transformation, valuable resources were spent dealing with confrontations. With a common vision and shared values, members can make more efficient use of their resources by collaborating and maximizing their strengths.

Conscious awakening is happening in the world. It is no longer acceptable for businesses to avoid responsibility for all its stakeholders, even when they live on the opposite side of the planet. Thanks to social media and globalization, Third World countries will see benefit in the long term as we learn to take care of each other for the common good. It may take a pinch of enlightened self-interest and, sometimes, tragedy for change to happen; however, evolutionary transformation cannot be stopped once conscious awareness has taken place.

Creating a better world happens through the ABCs of High Performance. Start with AWARENESS of employees’ needs through a Cultural Values Assessment. Create a sense of BELONGINGNESS  by building trust in sharing your values. And  COMMIT as an organization to an inspiring vision.

With love from Singapore.

With 30 years in business transformation working with organizations, Joanna’s passion lies in working with leaders, facilitating active participation in organizational change, developing resourceful teams and aligning strategic objectives. Her goal is to help organizations become high performing and values-driven, where people take ownership, build commitment and bridge communication gaps.

Planning a Merger or Leading Change? Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast

There is a well-known saying by Peter Drucker: “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” Applied to culture change this means whatever new strategies a leadership team creates will not succeed unless they are aligned with the current or desired culture.  How can you expect different results unless you focus consciously on changing the way people behave and interact with each other?

What sunk the Titanic was not above the waterline but below. The currents of emotions within an organization are at play beneath the surface. The saying, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast,” is an apt description of the power of cultural currents and their impact on strategic initiatives. How people do things, the management style, and the way decisions are made all play out here.

Beneath the surface is where habits and traditions exist that either engage and empower people or hold them back from wanting to adapt to change. Here is where attitudes and beliefs create resistance, and where values and behaviors are expressed and lived.

Planning a merger? Imagine the impact a Cultural Values Assessment can have on leading the integration of two organizations successfully.  What do you need to think about?

Leadership is recognizing how important engaged employees, collaboration, and the power of collective action are to achieving business results. The ability to implement new strategies depends on creating a shared vision and moving in a common direction.  Leaders need to believe and commit to the new strategies, and create internal cohesion on the leadership team.

What can prevent this from happening?  Resistance to change.  The “why” is not compelling enough, emotional fears block new behaviours due to uncertainty of the future, or not trusting the leader to keep their promises. Resistance to change is one of the biggest obstacles to leading successful change.

The most critical successful factor is the leadership team and their commitment to cultural transformation. There needs to be a shift in thinking and behavior from “me” to “we”. The “we” is the ability to create shared goals with shared values. Building trust and having a common approach to achieving the goals, and working together.

Imagine what this will mean to leaders who only know a command and control style of leadership. “My way or the highway!” It will require the development of a new leadership style—one that is more facilitative with a focus on building consensus and engaging participation. This can be a huge change in what leaders’ value, the way they behave, and how performance is measured.

The way of reaching your goals and realizing your strategies is embedded in how people act and interact with one another.  In other words, your culture. We all know Einstein’s theory of insanity:

“Doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results.”

Well here’s mine for cultural insanity:

“Expecting your employees to embrace new work habits and higher levels of collaboration between teams, while maintaining the same management style, organizational values, and behaviors.”

In the current global climate where increasing awareness and knowledge management is a competitive advantage, it would stand to reason that creating a conscious culture would be a management priority. This begs the question: “Are you investing in your culture or will you continue to have an unconscious, default culture?”

There are several reasons to invest in creating a conscious culture:

  • To become an employer of choice, and build a high performing workplace.
  • To increase employee engagement and retention.
  • To build a new culture after a merger or acquisition.

One way to create a conscious culture is to map and measure it by conducting a Cultural Values Assessment with the organization. I love this process because it includes everyone in the process of change which builds awareness, belongingness and commitment to cultural transformation. Whatever changes are required to align the culture with the new strategies will emerge in the process of reviewing the results with staff and the leaders.

A values assessment empowers leaders to map, measure and manage their cultural transformation for strategic success.

With love from Singapore.

Finding Fulfilment – How to Retain Top Talent

It is said that the two most important days of your life are the day you are born and no, not the day you die, but the day you realize why you are born. Why is the second so important? Because discovering your true purpose or calling in life connects to your inner passion for living. How you see the world, the decisions you make to earn a living and what you do from then on is influenced by an inner desire to grow and fulfill your life’s purpose.

Are you thriving or merely surviving? I define thriving as having the ability to express yourself, connect with others, and contribute in meaningful ways.

Last week at a seminar I heard a wonderful expression:  Millennials are suffering from “quarter-life crisis”! As amusing as this sounds, it tells me something powerful about their hopes and dreams. They are looking for fulfilment, want to make a difference, and do something meaningful with the precious gift of life they have been given.

Soon 50% of the workforce will be made up of Millennials.  What impact will this have on your workplace environment, having a workforce that is looking for ‘employee fulfilment’? How are you preparing to meet this need and what exactly does fulfilment mean to them? It’s certainly quite a different set of expectations from when I first entered the workforce.  I was just happy to have a job.

These are very important questions to answer.  They will make a difference whether or not an organization will be able to effectively engage and retain the valuable talent they have spent considerable resources to attract and hire.

Fulfilment can only begin to happen when our basic needs have been met.  Meeting our basic needs are the building blocks for our emotional and physical health. For most Millennials entering the workforce this is the case. Their basic needs of survival/safety, loving relationships, and self-esteem/status have been met. As parents, we have provided these basic needs that have enabled our children to grow and develop.

With their basic needs provided for, development of individuality begins. They develop their own sense of style, who they are, and what will make them happy. Growth and fulfilment being to happen from within, discovering themselves.

The more alignment we can create in our lives between meeting our basic needs and fulfilling our purpose, the healthier, happier and higher performing we will be. This is where the sense of thriving comes from.

It is journey of self-discovery, our reason for being, and our purpose.  When we can satisfy our basic needs and our purpose at the same time, we will find fulfilment and experience a deep sense of well-being.

Millennials are often seen as demanding and self-centred. However, these are necessary steps on the journey to finding fulfilment. Discovering who you are and what will make you happy.

We tend to think ourselves as material beings, but in reality we are energetics beings having a physical experience.

One way to discover who you are and what’s most important to you is to explore your personal values. The Personal Values Assessment from the Barrett Values Centre is a free online tool designed for personal development and team building.  Values are the language of the heart and when lived, give a positive mental attitude.

Positive Mental Attitude x Ability = High Performance

And conversely, “Negative Mental Attitude x Ability (all the degrees and experience you have) = Low Performance

Use the tool to discover what matters most in your life and share these values with your manager, team members and loved ones.  The more alignment you can find at work and in your relationships with your personal values, the happier and more fulfilled you will be.

What I love most about finding fulfilment are the positive all-round impacts it has on personal happiness, physical and mental health, and our overall performance.

Providing employee fulfilment is a key success factor to retaining top talent.

With love from Singapore.

IQ + EQ = SQ (Social Intelligence)

IQ + EQ = SQ 

Social Intelligence to Engage the Collaborative Organization

Learning to share power is the challenge of the 21st century.  For 17 years I’ve been a professional facilitator, helping teams and communities come together to build consensus and collaborate. What I’ve witnessed is people in all fields; technical, business, politics, and the caring industry, have trouble getting along and collaborating with their peers.

For thousands of years, hierarchical, command and control leaders have been the role model. Hence, it will take time for old patterns to change. Obstacles to success will arise daily as co-workers lack the skills, self-awareness, and interpersonal skills to collaborate. How to address conflict seems to be the biggest stumbling block, where those with EQ are far more successful than those with high levels of IQ.

In the technical fields, it’s not unusual to find conflict with people who suffer from a lack of social skills and have trouble getting along.  The level of trust for co-workers is very low, and collaboration is almost non-existent.  Conflict is also high when it comes to the business and political arenas, where people are expected to challenge the status quo, compete, and create something new.

I’d like to propose that success in the 21st century will actually depend more on SQ, social intelligence, the result of combining EQ and IQ.

Soft skills are changing the game:

  • IQ gets you in the door,
  • EQ get you recognized by your co-workers,
  • SQ, the science of human relationships, enables leaders to engage the collective wisdom of the organization.

To be a great socially intelligent leader, you need to know:

  • How to inspire and develop the talents of your people,
  • Create a safe environment which empowers staff to take creative risks,
  • Build relationships out in the community,
  • Make presentations,
  • Create inspiring visions,
  • Constantly stretch, learn, and grow, modelling how to expand and reinvent yourself.

The Organization Journey Map (Figure A-4) is a useful tool for seeing where the organization is currently and where it wishes to grow. The leadership and skills segments of the map are particularly helpful in understanding what new training and development is necessary to develop the skills needed to lead cultural change and transform into the collaborative organization. As the saying goes, “leaders need to be the change they wish to see.” This implies leaders need to have the competencies for managers and employees to follow.

Interaction is the core characteristic of the collaborative phase. Organizations in this phase aim for real teamwork between all members and departments. Their mission and goal is to make a quality impact on society. Socially intelligent leaders are enthusiastic, visionary, and empathetic. Their management style is facilitative. Key skills at this level are delegating responsibility, managing group conflict, growing from experience, and helping others do the same. The main difference between collaborative and lower-phase organizations is the free flow of ideas.

There is a reason why companies value team players.  Those who get along with others tend to rise to the top. Leaders can’t build organizations on brilliance alone and need people who can implement great ideas.  Collaboration trumps competition as a transformational force. Working together by harnessing the power our social intelligence through relationship, responsiveness and cooperation.

With love from Singapore.

From Fear to Trust

Everyone wants joy and happiness, but few realize that mental, physical and emotional well-being are the foundation to them all.

Each of us has the power to make choices to be our most joyful, loving and creative selves. So what holds us back from making positive choices to realize our full potential?
Our fears.
Fears of not having enough. Fears of not being loved enough. Or fears of not being good enough.

As leaders in our fast changing world, we need the skills to be able to face our fears, learn and adapt to change, constantly. The most successful individuals and companies are the ones who are able to adapt to change quickly.What prevents learning and growth are our fears. The biggest one is the overriding need for safety and security.

Here is some wisdom from Abraham Maslow:
“… Growth forward is made possible by the feeling of being safe, operating out into the unknown from a safe home port, of daring because retreat is possible… Assured safety permits higher needs and impulses to emerge and to grow towards mastery… In the choice between giving up safety or giving up growth, safety will win out.”
What Maslow is saying is fear holds us back, and trust enables us to grow.
Whenever we encounter a new situation, we need to have the confidence and trust in our abilities and our organization, to cope with the challenges and support us. It takes courage to grow, and trust in our environment to overcome the fears we may be feeling.
  • What factors in your environment are helping you build the confidence needed for a growth mind-set?
  • How are you enabling your people to embrace change with confidence in their abilities?
  • What is leadership doing to build a safe and secure workplace that will support you if you fail?
Having a growth mind-set enables us to learn and adapt to change. It must be supported by the right workplace culture and leadership. A workplace culture that encourages creativity and failure. This is because innovation entails trial and error. With a leadership style that builds trust and trustworthiness, that values you and your abilities.
Here is a team building tool to help you build greater awareness for the issues surround trust on your team. The Trust Matrix (Graphic 5.3) and Trust Matrix worksheet (Worksheet 12-1) or pages 83 and 222 from my book, Conscious Culture.
How can you overcome your fears?
• Have confidence in your abilities.
• Have the courage to know you are safe and secure
• Trust yourself and others (this can be a biggie!)Using the Trust Matrix Worksheet as a team building process empowers teams members to move from fear to trust.  It creates a safe environment for dialogue where individuals can share the  team’s strengths, and those areas where improvements can be made.Joy and happiness are your birth-right. We mustn’t let our fears hold us back from experiencing the best this life has to offer.
Much love from Singapore

All you need is love

Christmas 2Tis the season, isn’t it? That time of year where the spirit of Christmas fills your heart with love and we feel that warm glow of joy, happiness and peace.

What if we could bottle this feeling of love and connection, and share it the whole year? Imagine what life would be like.

“All you need is love”. 

These words made famous by The Beatles 30+ years ago, still hold true today.  Positive energy and inspirational leadership come from the heart. This feeling of happiness we experience at Christmas, the human connections we make, to me, this is the human spirit that makes all things possible.

Song-All-You-Need-Is-Love-300x295

 Everyone wants to experience love, joy and happiness in life and at work, but few realize our own level of happiness, the quality of our relationships and amount of connection we have to others, are the foundation to them all.

At Christmas, our loving spirit awakens to who we are, and the importance of our inner nature. Mind, body and spirit are integrated to promote our desire for good health, fulfilling relationships, and inner peace.

My wish this Christmas is for you to bottle that loving feeling you have and keep it close to your heart. Use it as a reminder of what is possible the throughout whole year. 

 

With love from Singapore,

My new year’s gift to you for 2017 is:

Art of Happiness Program   – – Learn how to bring happiness and inspiration into your life everyday!

When: January 3 – 7, 2017

Art of Workplace Happiness – Awakening the “Heart” of Leadership Potential

happiness and joy in workplace cultureArt of Workplace Happiness
Awakening the “Heart” of Leadership Potential

In 2015, Singapore conducted a National Happiness Survey. The survey shows the link between happiness and culture. When leaders invest in creating a culture that is engaging and aligned with the values of their employees, profitability increases. Employees are more satisfied and high performing.

When leaders create a conscious culture of happiness and participation that is aligned with the values of their employees, profitability increases through greater employee satisfaction and performance. Healthy workplaces create happy employees who are less stressed, more focused and creative, and as a result more productive.

There is a growing need for new-thinking and conscious leadership to lead transformation with increased levels of employee participation and engagement. Plans, strategies and structures represent only the ÔÇ£tip of the icebergÔÇØ in terms of leading innovation. It is the collective habits, attitudes and beliefs of the leaders and employees ÔÇô YOUR workplace culture ÔÇô that can make or break new initiatives.

In this workshop, Joanna Barclay shares 3 decades of facilitating successful leadership teams resulting in high performing, values-driven organisations. With her ABCs of High Performance, she provides a blueprint for awakening leadership potential that fuels happy, high performing, values-driven organisations.

Highlights
