  2. 2. In a recent Blog we set the challenge to “Become Awesome Today” and talked about Resistance Practice &Personal Mastery. Today we‟d like to take a closer look at both and how the disciplines and thinking behind each could really help you and your Organisation or Business to become not only Super Performing, but also tougher than the rest! In a new book, „Mastery‟, the American writer Robert Greene argues that Modern Technology is encouraging us to make quicker and increasingly less well-informed Judgements, rather than making us focus on developing a deeper understanding & greater awareness. An Apprenticeship to develop lasting skills will get us furthest he suggests & we will be looking at another take on this when we focus on what it means to be part of Modern Technology‟s „Generation C‟ in a future Blog.

  3. 3. Henry Ford though observed nearly one hundred years ago that it was part of the human condition to “rush too much with nervous hands and worried minds”. We were in his view impatient for results & someday he believed we would know enough about intelligence and the realm of the spirit to create a deeper and more considered understanding of things – Whether he was anticipating Modern Technology we may only conjecture, but one of the key questions is, „what serves the human condition, rather than enslaves it?‟ We would suggest, Continual Learning!

  4. 4. As well as Blogging about Black Swans, Building Resilience and asking whether you are Robust, Fragile or Anti-Fragile amongst other things, we have also recently Blogged about Personal Mastery. Peter Senge tells us in, „The Fifth Discipline‟ that Organisations learn only through individuals who learn, &, whilst individual learning won‟t by itself guarantee organisational learning, it‟s a Zero Sum game – Without Individual Learning no Organisational Learning can take place! People are the „active force‟ of organisations & if these people are encouraged and supported to continually learn then from their quest for Continual learning comes the spirit of the Learning Organisation. Senge suggests that the individual discipline of personal growth & learning should be called „Personal Mastery‟ (PM). People with high levels of PM are continually expanding their ability to create the results in life they truly seek. Their learning supports their Condition, or Spirit if you‟d prefer, &, Personal Mastery goes beyond competence and skill.

  5. 5. Senge argues that it is driven by two fundamental needs – Firstly, by the need to continually clarify what is important to us. For example, have you ever thought that you are spending too much time coping with problems and forgetting what you are trying to achieve in the first place? The consequence of this behaviour is that we only have a dim, or ill conceived view of what‟s really important to us. The Second need Senge suggests is to be able to see current reality more clearly. For example, think of people you have known who have been stuck in counterproductive relationships, but keep pretending that everything is all right. Or, think of the times in the work place where you have heard people saying something like, „ Well, we‟re on course, relative to our plans‟ – As the French might say, Maybe Yes, Maybe No? To get to where you want to go it is vital to know where you are now and achieving this understanding is at the forefront of The Mudd Partnership’s work with developing High Performing Individuals, Teams & Organisations.

  6. 6. Returning though to Robert Greene and his notion of an Apprenticeship, he cites John Keats who having read the Classical Greats to teach himself about Poetry, set himself the task of writing, „Endymion‟, a Poem of 4000 lines in seven months. This is what Greene calls, "Resistance Practice” - Taking the hardest option to make you, “Tougher than your Competitors”! We‟d rather like to think that this is actually the discipline of Personal Mastery in practice. Individual learning serving the human condition and creating resilient & Anti-Fragile Individuals and Organisations. It might also be something that Daniel Coyle would call, “Deep Learning”, defined as being the hard stuff which happens at the edges and leads to real personal growth. Now that‟s Tough! But it‟s also something that future Blogs we‟ll be digging a little deeper! Share this Ebook! © 2013 The Mudd Partnership | www.themuddpartnership.com | @muddpartnership | www.fb.com/muddpartnership
