This is Fibonacci with another installment of Applying Huna to Business.
In this episode, I tell a story about how I helped a team member change the way she thought about a situation such that it dramatically changed the way she felt about it. The net result of her positive feeling was a boost in her performance. You see, business is all about creating value.Â To do that, you need both a sense of creativity and efficiency. Another way to think about high performance is to think about it as high efficiency.
The story I tell is one of a “Go-Live Readiness Review” meeting where we caught a product deficiency before we released it to the user community. To remedy the situation we delegated greater authority to one team member to make sure that her colleagues got a bunch of data integrity tasks completed in the next few days.
I explain how I worked with this person to reset the way she thought about her new role and in a very few Instant Messages turned her emotions from defeating to empowering.
This conversation can provide a template for any number of professional situations to drive high performance.
