Self actualization (doing things) </li></ul></li> <li> 8 th Habit <ul><li>Covey says, "Leadership is a choice, not a position." </li></ul><ul><li>How many of us feel we have made a choice, or were we just filling a void and sort of got comfortable once we filled it? </li></ul></li> <li> 8 th Habit <ul><li>Leadership, if not chosen (daily), can be considered forfeited. </li></ul></li> <li> 8 th Habit <ul><li>Covey said the 8th Habit is about </li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>finding your voice </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>and inspiring others to find theirs </li></ul></li></ul></li> <li> <ul><li>What's the difference between </li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>inspiring someone </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>and encouraging, empowering, or assisting them? </li></ul></li></ul></li> <li> 8 th Habit <ul><li>Covey explained that Voice is your "unique personal significance." </li></ul><ul><li>It is that "significance that is revealed as we face our greatest challenges and that makes us equal to them." </li></ul></li> <li> <ul><li>How often do we feel "equal" to our "greatest challenges?" </li></ul><ul><li>Does this term "voice" remind you of other theories? </li></ul></li> <li> <ul><li>Coveys "voice" is similar to </li></ul><ul><li>Maslow's "self-actualization," from his "Hierarchy Of Needs </li></ul><ul><li>And also looks similar to Cskszentmihlyis Flow </li></ul></li> <li> Flow <ul><li>Flow is the mental state of operation in which the person is fully immersed in what he or she is doing, characterized by a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity. </li></ul></li> <li> How do I get there from here? <ul><li>Clear goals </li></ul><ul><li>Concentrating and focusing </li></ul><ul><li>S elf-consciousness </li></ul><ul><li>Distorted sense of time </li></ul><ul><li>Direct and immediate feedback </li></ul><ul><li>Balanced ability level and challenge </li></ul><ul><li>A sense of personal control. </li></ul><ul><li>An activity that is intrinsically rewarding </li></ul><ul><li>Becoming absorbed in the activity </li></ul><ul><li>Not all are needed for flow to be experienced. </li></ul></li> <li> How do We get there from here? <ul><li>Creative spatial arrangements </li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>Chairs </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>Pin walls </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>Charts (no tables) </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>Work primarily while standing and moving. </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li>Playground design </li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>Charts &amp; Flow graphs </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>Project summary </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>Results wall </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li><ul><li>Open topics </li></ul></li></ul><ul><li>Parallel, organized working </li></ul><ul><li>Target group focus </li></ul><ul><li>Prototyping </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency through visualization </li></ul><ul><li>Differences seen as opportunities, not obstacles. </li></ul></li> <li> Where will I feel Flow? <ul><li>Business (especially negotiations) </li></ul><ul><li>Playing music </li></ul><ul><li>Playing sports </li></ul><ul><li>Playing video games </li></ul><ul><li>Doing standup comedy </li></ul><ul><li>Religious activity </li></ul><ul><li>Education (learning and sharing) </li></ul></li> <li> References <ul><li>Covey, S.
