“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your inner voice.
And most important, dare to follow your heart and intuition.Steve Jobs
Previously, I took up a consultant position in a large organisation to assist in a cultural change program. To point out, I was excited to be part of this forward-thinking organisation. To be part of a massive progressive change.
I wasn’t long into my role when I could see the disconnect within the organisation. The vision and values were what drew me to accept the role. However, on closer inspection, there was such a strong underlying fear of how this change would impact the people.
For this reason, the resistance to change was evident from all levels within the organisation. This was due to the vision and values not being practiced.
Change was required to remain progressive and innovative. However, many long-term employees were fearful of change. Refusing to change. Thus, preventing the cultural change to occur.
To sum up, cultural change cannot occur without all levels within the organisation being engaged. Making a collective shift and becoming more accountable. In a word, aligning to the organisational vision, values, and purpose is critical for change to occur.
Fear limits intuition!
We know that fear limits intuition. Lack of intuition disrupts innovation. We know that organisations of the future need to be innovative and demonstrate conscious leadership if they want to survive. That is, leading with their values and purpose. This means they need to use their intuition more and be the facilitator of transformation!
No longer can organisations say one thing and do the opposite and expect to stay current and successful. Research shows that baby boomers are exiting the workforce and making way for the millennial generation (generation Y).
The Millennial Generation
The millennials generation are the population who were born from the 1980s to the early 2000s. They now comprise of 75% of the global workforce.
Some characteristics of this generation are: –
- Intuitive knowledge of technology
- Open and adaptive to change
- Free thinking and creative
- Values social interaction in the workplace
- Crave flexibility
With this in mind, millennials will be the generation to push forward this change. Shifting from the rigid command and control type of leadership into a more relaxed, flexible and collaborative style.
To help move forward into the future requires leaders to transform the workplace and employees using energetic means. The simplest and most effective way is to encourage and support intuitive development.
Five years ago, mindfulness and meditation were used heavily in medicine, science, and the workplace. Put simply, mindfulness is a practice of paying attention to the current moment and acknowledge any thoughts and let them go, and just focus on breathing.
Not only does mindfulness relax you and enable you to listen to your inner thoughts, your intuition. It also reduces stress, lowers health costs, improves health, increases employee productivity, improves innovative thinking and communication.
In conclusion, for organisations to flex into a more adaptable world, they should encourage intuitive practices to create leaders of the future who facilitate transformation!
We understand that fear impacts intuition and disrupts innovation and creativity. However, focusing on intuition, innovation and creativity will dissipate the fear and allow a new transformational type of leadership to reign.
Three simple steps to help:-
- Practice mindfulness or meditation to quieten your mind
- Start to feel your emotions from your heart
- Be curious and challenge current ways of doing and thinking
The more we discuss and acknowledge the power of developing and using our intuition, the more effective organisations will be and the happier the workforce will be.
