For me, as a Vistage Chair for 26 years, it has been a wonderful teaching tool for communication. I always remember Meg Wheatly being asked what she was on the Myers-Briggs. Her answer: was: IDKAIDC. I don't know, and I don't care. I believe that she was addressing those who neglect getting to know the person and rather use an assessment.
Lee Thayer put is well in Leadership: Thinking, Being, Doing. He talks about creating a Role Desciption rather than a Job Description.
A role description talks about the results that a position requires one to achieve.
A job description talks about the activities that one does in a position.
What has always been interesting to me is that the word "Job" is from the Anglo-Saxon and means: "a lump." Like a lump of coal. So 250 years ago they were saying you can't do a "job" of work. W is about creating something that gives purpose, meaning and significance to one's life. For many that meant working on projects that would not be finished in their lifetime, yet it was contributing to their community.
Now, people are afraid of losing their "jobs." How many in the US will be going from unemployed and onto disability?
Read some of Karen Dietz's Just Story It. Life is Improv. We are all under the same economic cloud at anytime. Some will succeed and others will fall victim. If I can't imagine it, I can't create it. What are each of us imagining and creating to contribute to the betterment of mankind.
Some of us may want to start with: Mindfulness as a practice. Then realizing that how I think is who I become and from that being flows the habits that show themselves in what I do...and don't do. Back to: Be, Do, Be, Do, Be, Do.
