Fligby Values

  1. 1. FLIGBY® Values ©2016 ALEAS Simulations, Inc., 1 FLIGBY Values Leadership starts with you – who you are, what you care about, and what you want to see happen. We’ve created FLIGBY based on the following values: 1. We believe in the Power of Flow – Flow is the mental state of operation in which a person in an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity. The Flow-based organization promotes employee engagement and positive attitudes in the workplace. Done well, it helps to reduce costs, employee complaints and makes the company a place that people enjoy being a part of. Flow has the ability to improve the quality of life. 2. Visioning beyond the Self – Business that does not contribute to human growth and well-being is not worth doing, no matter how much profit it generates in the short run. The most important distinguishing trait of visionary leaders is that they believe in a goal that benefits not only themselves, but others as well. People want to work for a cause, not just for a living. We must have the conviction that our existence serves a useful purpose and has value. 3. You are the Key to Success – Contrary to what most of us believe, happiness does not simply happen to us. It's something that we make happen, and it results from our doing our best. The more opportunities you are willing to explore, the better chances you have of discovering your strengths. To experience Flow you must keep cultivating interest and curiosity, respond to wide range of opportunities, and develop as many skills as possible. 4. Leadership is a Function of Questions – Management has a lot to do with answers. But leadership is a function of questions. And the first question for a leader always is: "Who do we intend to be?" and not "What are we going to do?" Your creativity depends in a large part on the ability to ask the right questions. The problem finding is rather crucial to creativity than problem solving. 5. Let people grow – The main task of a manager is to get people to work together efficiently for a common cause. The best way to accomplish this is to create an environment where employees actually enjoy their work and grow in the progress of doing it. Getting employees to give their best is a way to make it possible for them to grow as individuals. An ideal organization is one in which each worker's potentialities find room for expression.
