Understanding your natural energy is the first step in finding your personal flow as it shapes the way that you naturally think, communicate and operate. The state of flow, or the ''Zone" as it is sometimes referred to in sports, is where there is little, or no resistance and our lives unfold in a way that moves us forward without friction and struggle.
The "Zone" or the State of Flow
Your flow comes from following your natural path or energy. This is most often observed in critical moments when you respond from this dominant energy or frequency. A critical or defining moment is frequently a point of intense pressure or turning point, in which the decisions you make or the actions you take dramatically impact your journey and your results either positively or negatively.
Our Contribution Compass Report is designed to help you develop a deep understanding of your own natural energy so you can start asking the right questions at the right time and find the "flow zone'' more easily. This space is found between anxiety and boredom and is a state where you feel fully immersed in the activity at hand.
Contribution Compass’ Concept of Natural Energy and Flow
Some people are naturally innovative and intuitively drive concepts, projects and activities forward, despite all the odds. Other people wait for the right time to make a decision or take action based on their sense of the market their team or their clients. Some people will always be focused on who is affected by a decision and who they can connect with, whereas others will naturally think of the process or the system first and how that should operate.
The concept of natural energy and flow does not suggest that any of these approaches are right or wrong, It simply acknowledges that they exist, and therefore different people will naturally be more effective at different roles within a business. The ace in the finance department would struggle if moved into a sales role. while a successful salesperson will often be the wrong person to lead a long, detailed delivery project.
Why is it important for you and for the team you either operate inside of or lead?
- The Team
Successful companies are great at identifying, recruiting and retaining talent that adds the right kind of value to their customers and company, and then leveraging that contribution to maximum returns. It requires that you have a deep understanding of your natural energy and that you actively seek to utilise that natural energy to create, build and deliver value - for yourself and others inside the organisation. When there is a balance of natural energy around a boardroom table, in a managem1ent team or across the operational and front-line teams, the stronger team dynamics create greater personal flow, customer flow and profit flow as a result.
- One’s Self
On a personal level, maturing your understanding and application of your natural energy is critical for your development and to maximise the opportunities available to you both personally and professionally. This understanding will also add huge value to your family and home environment as it does to the team or business that you are a part of.
