MBL Minute: Strategic Action And The Politics Of Fear And Anger

 

Episode Notes

 

Strategic Action

 

We need to recognize the difference between actions we are taking and the results we are creating.  Our actions need to “move the needle” toward the Vision of our desired results.  We need to shift the focus from how much we do to the impact of those actions.  Most of us work too hard on activities that are urgent but not strategically important to our personal success or the success of the organization.  By focusing more on activities that are less urgent but move us in the direction of our Vision we ultimately achieve better results that require less effort and we have more fun along the way.

 

The Politics of Fear and Anger

 

A government or a system of justice can pass laws and they can enforce those laws but they cannot legislate what is in an individual’s mind.  Time will not change this reality.  We need to be doing the emotional labor required to change our minds if we want to achieve better results that are sustainable.

MBL Minute: Knowing And Learning And Brain And Mind

 

Episode Notes

 

Knowing and Learning

 

It would be a mistake to believe that if you know something you have learned that thing.  These are two separate and distinct processes.  The act of knowing requires intellectual labor whereas the act of learning takes emotional labor.  Learning comes from the actions we take based upon what we know. 

 

Brain and Mind

 

We have the power inside our self, in every minute of every day, to use our mind to change our brain to change our mind for the better.  Neurons that fire together wire together.  We can build unshakeable inner strength by putting emotional intelligence into our backpack of skills and abilities.

 

We can hard wire the capabilities of emotional intelligence into our brain by practicing the emotional labor of taking actions that are non-resistive, non-judgmental and non-attached to outcome.  This is more challenging that it may seem because brain neuroscience researchers have discovered our brain has a negativity bias.

MBL Minute: Someday And The Joy Of Discomfort

 

Episode Notes

 

Someday

 

In has been estimated only five percent of the population is living on purpose.  The choices we make today, in the present moment, can determine the trajectory of our future success.  We often make poor decisions today and later rationalize those choices by telling ourselves we will make better decisions tomorrow.  We way we do anything is the way we do everything.  Our actions create the habits that determine our behavior.

 

The Joy of Discomfort

 

When you identify the discomfort you have identified the place where authentic emotionally intelligent leadership is needed.  The willingness to engage in activities that create discomfort is essential to the health of an organization.  There is a growing need to develop the soft skills and habits necessary to become trusted advisors as the organization learns how to embrace innovation and change.

Episode #31: Worst Case Scenario

 

There is an old saying…  It’s not what happens, it’s what happens next.  The motivation to face worst case possibilities comes from an emotional connection to the Vision of a desired result that is stronger than our fear.  These situations require our emotional labor.  This is how we reconnect with our authentic selves while developing our emotional intelligence.

 

Becoming confident in our ability to handle potential worst case scenarios deduces stress and this enables us to lower our walls.  Learning to stay focused during worst case conditions is the type of emotional intelligence that produces better results.  In conflict situations, when our walls go up and we lose focus and we burn trust or in extreme situations people die.

 

Staying calm is the true test of our effectiveness at handling challenges.  By lowing our walls, blood continues to flow to the neocortex part of the brain and we are able to explore potentially creative and innovative solutions to a problem.   However, when we raise our walls the neocortex shuts down triggering an automatic fight, flight or freeze response.

 

The anxiety we feel when we step outside of our comfort zone comes from practicing failure in advance.  Anxiety often stops us from moving forward toward our desired results.  The development of our emotional intelligence is essential for us to be able to manage our amygdales’ fear response.  It is the essential tool we need to explore potential worst case scenarios on the way to achieving our desired results.

 

Worst Case Global Scenarios

 

Climate Change; Clean Water; Population Growth; Human Rights; Economic Inequality; Education; Regional Conflicts

 

Our special guest is David Bakstran (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dave-bakstran-11b4b7b/).  David is a Mentor and Coach at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts USA.

MBL Minute: Awakening And Change Your Frequency Change Your Results

 

Episode Notes

 

Awakening

 

“Now I feel like I have this translation layer between my unconscious urges and my actions.”

 

This comment made by Andrew Wright, a recent guest on the podcast and an MBL alumnus, was a very wise reflection.  We don’t know what we don’t know but once we find out there is no turning back.  Once begun, the journey to awakening is irreversible.  For those who are ready to do the emotional labor required, this awakening will shift their actions and results.  With each person who awakens it becomes easier for others to follow this path.  Only by awakening can we appreciate that our greatest gift and power is our ability to choose.

 

Change Your Frequency, Change Your Results

 

Albert Einstein once stated that everything is energy and that’s all there is to it.  Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality.  It can be no other way.  This is not philosophy, this is physics.  We are each a mass of energy vibrating at a unique frequency.  Our emotions also have a unique frequency associated with each one.  The closer we get to the frequency of enlightenment the better our results.  We must first make a committed decision to achieve that frequency before we can begin to experience the results and awareness the journey will create.  This is what all great leaders share in common.  They begin with the end in mind.

MBL Minute: Standard Of Performance And Good And Bad Habits

 

Episode Notes

 

A Standard of Performance

 

The way you do anything is the way you do everything.  When you implement an effective standard of performance within an organization successful outcomes occur without having to focus on them (non-attachment to outcome).  The results take care of themselves when you focus on and master the process.  There needs to be an urgentness to adopt the new performance standard.  Hiring, firing, promotion and employment decisions need to reflect the stand of performance you have established.  An organization’s performance standard defines and determines how the culture and behavior will evolve.  Each company is designed for the results they are getting.

 

Good or Bad Habits

 

All habits are meant to be addictive so they can be easily repeated.  That is why we need to make sure the habits we are developing are good ones.  The first time you tasted food as a baby your brain instantly created a chemical reaction and you received a massive and unexpected award.  The reward was a dose of the neurotransmitter dopamine.  Your eyes went wide with surprise and amazement.  You began frantically moving your head and kicking with legs.  Your brain said “Wow, this is great, I want more.” now.

MBL Minute: Genius Mastery And Ego Or Authentic Self

 

Episode Notes

 

Genius Mastery

 

This requires a conscious, deliberate and extended practice.  If we are learning to master a complex skill such as flying a jet or participating in a triathlon we must first master a series of simpler micro skills, one on top of another.  Each time one skill becomes automatic, through a process brain researchers call automaticity, the mind is freed up to focus on the next higher skill.  Over time these skills become fused together in a way that transforms us and unleashes our genius mastery.  In this stage of enlightenment we enter a state of unconscious flow with our internal and external environments

 

Alter Ego or Authentic Self

 

The choice to wear a mask and behave like someone else moves us further from our authentic selves.  When we are young, we are told to be kind, open, loving and generous.  When we stood up to the bullies for treating someone badly we got shoved in a locker.  Our mindset began to change.  Being open, kind and generous can sometimes come at a price.  So we put on masks to protect ourselves as we try to fit in with others.  The athletic mask.  The material mask.  The intellectual mask.  The control mask.  The joker mask.  The know it all.
