Creating the Flow

The concept of "going with the flow" is familiar to us all. Some individuals are happy to ‘go with the flow’ and others say they will embrace it if they know where the flow is headed. We believe that it is the responsibility of the leader to determine the course of the flow.

By establishing a natural rhythm and ensuring that everyone is fulfilling their respective roles, the leader enables their team to enter a state of flow. The leader's strength lies in their ability to understand and have confidence in the direction of their flow. This allows them to foster effective communication, provide feedback, and celebrate the behaviours that propel the team and organization in the right direction.

Typically when we think of a ‘flow state’ we think of being immersed fully into one focused activity. Leaders have to find their balance of three things: leading, managing and doing. Even though a leader is shifting between these areas, they can and should still find what that flow state is. When a leader sets the flow and communicates it, individuals and teams are happier, find joy in their work, and feel that they’ve contributed at the end of the day. Leaders are happier, more creative, more energized and engaged.

In the words of Joel Barker, a vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world. It’s when vision is coupled with action that the world can truly be transformed. People need to have a clear understanding of where the flow is going so that they can determine their actions with confidence.

Creating the flow stops us from status-quo thinking.
