  • (Depending on the audience, I might defer this until a second session.) Constructionist:
  • Inner Dialogue: Heart patient study: 1:1 ratio vs. 2:1 Images occur in dialogue – sum total or ratio of + and - statements The internal dialogue of an organization is where you find the guiding image of the company -- The conversations we have with each other. Think about Nortel’s "inner dialogue" right now and the effects they have on action and mindset. Sports – see lots of examples of affirmative capacity – the idea that the brain has the ability to wrap around an image rather than a "not image." Close your eyes right now and do not think about a cow grazing in an emerald green field who is black with a white stripe around the middle. This is why goal statements have to be stated in the positive: My favorite is to eat for health and vitality vs. don’t eat donuts. Bowlers study: We think that elimination of failures and practicing negative self-talk will improve performance when exactly the opposite appears to be true. Bowlers study: Both groups learned, but those viewing only what they did well showed a 100% difference in speed of improvement Sociology: When people study problems and conflicts, the number and severity of the problems they identify actually increases. But when they study human ideals & achievements, peak experiences and best practices, these things tend to flourish. Placebo 1/3 to 2/3 will respond. Higher when the doctor believes the medication will help as well. As we start to plan, let’s think about the actions you take which can create beliefs and images for others so that positive actions will move us in the direction of more vitality and aliveness as an organization. What I think is compelling in this research is that it tells us that symbols and conversations that emerge from whatever analytic mode we use are among our greatest resources. … look briefly at how this mode compares to traditional problem-solving. Of the power of positive image Pygmalion: "as the teacher believes, so the student becomes". In over 400 studies, behavior affected by assumptions Even occurred with white mice! Teacher attitude in basic training the most powerful predictor of future success in the military. Consider their mindset towards others and how people live into their beliefs. (My Tim Dempsey story)
  • This was used at a trucking company and began as a request to figure out how to reduce grievances. Notice how the wording was developed to resonate with that particular culture. Also notice how the preamble sets up the context for the questions.
  • Definition: 4 generic questions  Stories  Topics to study Design example: In the discovery phase at Avon, found that the most important moments of effective teaming between men and women happened when they worked as co-chairs. Become a design principle in the organization. Most organizational projects jump to Delivery: people, structures & practices. But if we don’t take the time to reconceive the organizational beliefs about all the tough stuff, you just repeat the old structures and revert right back to the command and control bureaucracy. Glossing over the principles phase in Design is why threre is no traction in most org change work. Delivery at Avon: major profit increase. Won a major award 2 years later as a best place for women to work; 6 years later the AI approach is still alive.
  • A calling depends on two words that are familiar to us everywhere in our lives, but often not at work: Love and soul. Many old story leaders recoil when they hear these words, fearing that crystals and incense will follow. The dictionary defines love as a deep and tender feeling of affection. We think too much. We feel too little. Most people yearn for the opportunity to have deep and tender feelings of affection for their work and their colleagues. They want to do work they love, with people they care about. These are natural human aspirations that have become strangely absent from the modern workplace. And then there is the “S” word - the Soul. The very notion of the soul, let alone the thought of having soulful experiences at work mystifies many people. We all experience soulful moments in our lives - when we are at the symphony, when we watch a sunset, when we gaze into the eyes of our lover, when we hold a baby, when we play with a puppy, when we are deeply appreciated. We all want to feel the same way at work. There is no reason why this should not be so Hardly anybody fails at something that engages their hearts; they fail at things that are driven by negative energy. Fear, especially of poverty, inadequacy, loss of status, change and other frailties of the ego, drive our career choices, and paradoxically, this inevitably leads us to failure - the thing we fear most. What makes great artists, poets, athletes or writers unique is that they are among the few who have discovered their gifts and turned them into work that they love. It is a calling, a vocation. As a consequence, they are often brilliant in their fields. We are not trained for a calling – we are called.
  • Inspiration is that moment when we access the ineffable experience of the spirit inside us, which is the spirit that is one with the universe. It is our muse, our creative juice, our love and passion and joy bursting from our heart in a tide of beautiful energy. Inspiration is an inner knowing that transcends any external motivation. Inspiration is thus a different class of experience from motivation.

    17. 17. AI Evidence <ul><li>When organizations or groups capture positive imagery internally and make it visible, it starts to drive change in an individualistic, self-directed way.
