In the attached article, my co-author, Paul David Walker, and I explain the role that individual and collective states-of-mind plays in organizational performance.
State-of-mind is the prevailing feeling-state embodied in an organization. It is the lens and filter through which leaders and teams view their organization and their work. It is a largely-invisible variable that profoundly shapes virtually every element of organizational performance.
Leaders with a deeper understanding of this variable have greater capacity to raise the prevailing state-of-mind in their organization. By doing so, they address problems when it matters most: before they even arise. At the same time, they unleash new levels of vitality, creativity and goodwill that are intrinsic to high-quality states-of-mind and that fuel genuine leaps in organizational performance.
