Look at the diagram below. Study it for a minute or two. As a leader, your challenge is to create an environment, a culture that fosters the leveraging of the resources listed on the left (mindsets) to create the stuff listed on the right (material.) It doesn’t really matter what material your business creates: software, hardware, consumer goods, industrial equipment, services, experiences. The process is the same in every business and organization – use the resources on the left to produce the stuff on the right. You can think of this as a process of creation. I call it “genesis,” and is represented by the vertical axis in the diagram.
The horizontal axis represents the energy field that is resonating through your organization. This is the collective unconscious, the “spirit of the organization”, the “Social Interactive Energy Field” that is resonating through your organization. Above the axis labeled resonance are the mindsets and behaviors that cohere to the abundant life resonating through the universe. These are the mindsets and behaviors that optimize the human experience.
We optimize for search engines. We optimize for efficiency. We optimize ROI. Ultimately, the mission of every organization should be to optimize the human experience.
Below the resonance axis are the mindsets and behaviors that interfere with happiness, and well being – that interfere with human experience optimization.
Anxiety is interfering.
It is worth noting that all of the resources listed on the left are infinitely abundant and FREE! You only have to create a culture that is free from anxiety (unmet needs,) fear, contempt, greed, and competition to access them. This is the only way to increase all of the things your organization needs. It’s the only way to maximize innovation, cooperation, synergy, caring, and generosity. This is the only way to optimize the human experience. This is your mission. This is your life’s work.
