we peer into the road ahead, it becomes pretty clear
we'll be driving our businesses and lives without
precedent much of the time. We'll rely less on past
history to prepare a view for the future. The kind
of thinking that drives the next century will be
radically different than the last one. Those who
thrive will be masters of the unprecedented. Competency
in intuition and vision will be required personal
The New Common Sense
is intelligence and knowing that occurs outside the thinking
process. It is an effortless insight that arises and makes
sense and it's surprise!, non linear, much like the evolving
scientific view of time and events. It also links into
"common sense" which remains curiously untaught in the
intellectual preferences of the current education and
sense is what drove our ancestors to survive the ruggedness
and weather conditions of establishing what North America
is today. Yet this was a visceral common sense, relating
more to physical survival in a hostile changing environment.
The current environment is much more a mental one, multiple
priorities and urgencies competing for our "attention".
However "attention" in its' purest sense is what most
of us now do poorly. That will change. What the "new common
sense" of intuition will look like will be more aligned
with visionary adeptness, clarifying sense out of information
garbage, the ability to out-think our intellectual intelligence
and out-smart our brain stem. No longer victims of our
intellect, through intuition we'll open doors to creative
intuition we can "unthink" the paradigm of work, work
as effort. There are easier ways. The escalating costs
of occupational stress from 3 billion to 12 billion/year
in just a few years in Canada alone are unbearable. And
these are just economic costs, perhaps the easiest to
bear because the human costs on lives and on families,
are much higher. Frankly these costs are not required
to sustain quality of life. We could do much better than
this with a change in strategy.
We're Smarter Than We
create our future in the same way as we arrived here.
We're creating a generation of knowledge and communication
workers and we're still trying to impose on them a "factory"
mentality that was designed to produce widgets in an industrial
age rather than results in our time. To produce results
you need insight and vision and you need to have inspired
people. It is the inspired person who will go the extra
step, see the higher potential, build a better client
relationship. But that's the tricky part. They have to
be inspired from the inside. You can't impose this on
anyone and no contemporary management theory will build
to get back to basics. We've been investing in a way that
seemingly benefits economic performance. Its probably
wrong. Organizations are leaner and meaner and key personnel
are more stressed than ever. How many of today's organizations
can truly say they are an energized creative force?
prosperity models will show there is a direct linkage
among human performance, balance, contribution to society
and profits. The reason we didn't see it before is because
we weren't looking for it. We were all driving the economic
and breakthrough stems first from ideas. Whole ideas are
born from whole people. To date we've invested little
on cultivating intuition, vision, and conceptual intelligence.
But the potential leverage on such investment is an increase
in both human and corporate profit.
intuition. It does restore personal power and vision.
But the inevitable question arises. What about the downside?
Of course there's a downside. Some talented people might
leave to explore their own visions. But others will come,
because they're attracted to your vision. There's a catch
here too. Your corporate vision had better be compelling
enough to invite them in.
commitment will be the creator and sustainer of your organization's
success in the future. This commitment will come in all
different shapes and sizes. The good news is there is
room for all kinds. Individuals must be willing and able
to state their commitment to an organization without fear
of judgement, and the organization must have an intention
to find the right fit.
Here are questions I'm
you can actually "train" the intuition?" "Yes." "Well
why didn't we do this before?" "Because we didn't think
it was possible. We were too smart to think about things
like that." "Wow, so how do we do it." "That's another
story." Yes. Its going to be a wild ride. But the first
decision we better make is whether we're going to hold
