The Human Potential of Choice Colby Stuart 10:2011

  1. 1. The Human Potential of Choice How values frame our choices and how choices shape our future not a presentation an interactive experience experiment about choices Dr. Colby Stuart • TransformationFest • 13 October 2011 • Haarlem, The Netherlands 1Thursday, 12 January 2012
  2. 2. Premise of the TransformationFest 2011 Inspiration • focus on new thinking about the role innovation and creativity play in transforming business Networking • opportunities to work together with attendees from other companies and cultures to apply the days thinking to real-life business problems 2Thursday, 12 January 2012
  3. 3. What is Human Potential? Scientifically, potential is • a physical quantity, capable of measurement at every point in a flow system, whose properties always flow from regions where the quantity has higher values of those in which it has lower, regardless of the direction in space (Hubbert 1940) Humanised, it is • an inherent capacity for coming into authentic being so we can experience an exceptional shift in our quality of life - filled with happiness, creativity, and fulfilment 3Thursday, 12 January 2012
  4. 4. The key to human potential transforming a mindset 4Thursday, 12 January 2012
  5. 5. What is your ideal role in life? What role would make you….. happy, fulfill your dreams and sustain you? What is the role you really want to play? not the the role that you have played to fulfil the expectations of others 5Thursday, 12 January 2012
  6. 6. What is the role of values in human potential? Values are what we stand for and believe at the very core of our human selves • core human values are part of our RNA and get expressed through our behaviour and choices Core human values exemplify who we are as individuals and frame our perspectives (the what) and shape our dispositions (the how) • each person sees the world through their own lens and from their own position • each person looks at the same situation and views it differently from the others There are many dependencies • context and expectations also play a role in our capacity to reach toward our potential 6Thursday, 12 January 2012
  7. 7. What is the role of human potential in groups? Give people something they cannot find anywhere else • the chance to become exactly who they believe they can become and to contribute in a unique way which demonstrates that value to the group A piece of a greater whole • when people begin to do this, they often find themselves directing their actions within society toward assisting others to reach their potential Enhanced by social media • we see coaching skills developing through dialogue and discussion • democratisation of old models of previously accepted behaviour 7Thursday, 12 January 2012
  8. 8. What is the role of values in framing our choices? Values establish a mental mindset • values frame what we have the capacity to see or believe • values create meaning Values establish an emotional mindset • values play themselves out in different contexts that affect our moods and shift our dispositions Values define our capacity to engage • if we believe in something, we engage naturally • if we do not believe in something, we continually struggle with how to engage with it • this is where choices become critical 8Thursday, 12 January 2012
  9. 9. How will your values frame your choices? We all have to make critical choices within a deadline. One way to test your true core values is to put yourself in a critical situation. Here is an exercise: • You have 10 minutes before the spaceship leaves. You have no choice but to get on it. You will never return. • Who do you say goodbye to? • Who do you take with you? • What do you take with you? • There is a space limitation: • You may only take 1 person plus whatever you can carry and hold on your lap. • Who is there to greet you when you arrive? • What will you do on your first day? 9Thursday, 12 January 2012
  10. 10. What choices are shaping our future? mindset - influenced by traditional media new signals from social technologies - challenging us to choose between role as consumer and role as citizen waves of influence from convergence of social media and the business of networking - creating innovative opportunities human desire to make a difference - now technologically enabled for collective engagement and social innovation web - democratising and transforming politics, enterprise, communication, and cultural hierarchies transformational, evolutionary leadership practices - emerging 10Thursday, 12 January 2012
  11. 11. What are the issues with making choices? limited perspectives - 360º insight needed clarification of role, purpose and value influence of perceptions, assumptions, expectations, concessions and accommodations assessment of risk and potential pressure and capacity knowing which approach will deliver wise outcome implications for the future 11Thursday, 12 January 2012
  12. 12. What are your issues with making choices? Are you clear about the role you play in the choice - or - the role that the choice plays in the situation? Do you understand the purpose you serve in the situation? Are you clear about the purpose the choice serves in the situation? Are you adding value to the situation with your choice or taking value away from the situation? Does the situation create value for you? 12Thursday, 12 January 2012
  13. 13. What have been your most difficult choices? Why? What kind of choice was it? • functional • emotional • philosophical How did you evaluate its outcome? What progressive insight did you learn from it? 13Thursday, 12 January 2012
  14. 14. One choice never travels alone let’s watch a 9 minute video that really tells the story http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7DtefkJsw8&feature=related 14Thursday, 12 January 2012
  15. 15. Where is the 360º view? Can we crowdsource our collective intelligence? Can we use this collective wisdom to identify our choices? Can we map the issues and consequences of those choices to make them plain and clear to us? Do we vision how those choices impact our future? What is the impact of our collective human potential when we make collective choices? 15Thursday, 12 January 2012
